Mark Your Calendar

Public schools begin in less than a month. It’s time to get back on a schedule and look at the opportunities that a new school year brings. I hope that you will make this August like the beginning of the new year—a time to reflect about where you are in your relationship with God. Here…

Summer @ FBC

I probably don’t have to remind you how busy and hectic the summer can be.   Public schools in St. Tammany Parish are only seven weeks from starting up again.  Isn’t this the first week of summer? Summer is a large part of what we want to accomplish at FBC. Let’s discuss our plan for doing ministry. First, we…

What Impressed Me About VBS, FBC Style

I’ve always been impressed by Vacation Bible School. I can remember several important events in VBS from the time when I was a kid. I remember a story about a POW. Only a few students knew what a POW was. We learned a valuable lesson that day about depending on God and knowing that God…
