Join us for IF: DeKalb County as we gather with women from all over the local area for the third year in a row to study God's word and worship alongside one another. Our event's mission is to unite the women of our county across denominations as we grow in our love of Jesus.
Come with your friend, your bible study, your neighbor, your coworkers, or be one of the many women who comes on their own. We can't wait to connect with you! The cost for IF: DeKalb County is $25/person. Register by January 28th to be entered for early bird drawings!

Everyone is encouraged to attend a short church business meeting on Sunday, February 24, immediately following the chili cookoff. You do not need to be a church member to attend. The congregation may present names for consideration to fill open board positions.
Recommendation forms for elders, deacons, and board positions are at the Welcome Center. Please return completed forms to an elder or the church office before the February 24 meeting.
Each year FBC sponsors a chili (soup) cook-off. This event is held each year to raise awareness of FBC’s work on the mission field.
Who attends and what does it cost? … Everyone is invited, and it’s FREE! Free-will offerings are accepted and go to support our short-term summer missions programs.
How does the cook-off work? … You’ll need to sign up at the Welcome Center. Just write down your name and indicate whether you’ll bring some type of chili or soup. Your entry does not have to be hot and spicy — it can be plain (like tomato soup), it can be sweet and dessert-like or whatever you want! Then you’ll want to decide on how to best display your chili. Your display can be as simple or as elaborate as you want.
What if we just want to attend but not enter the cook-off? … That’s cool! There will be food available. You can also roam around the fellowship hall and sample each variety of soup and chili.
Christmas Program & Pancake Breakfast
Join us as we celebrate as a church family on Sunday, December 9 for the annual children’s Christmas Program.
The morning begins at 9:30am with a pancake breakfast prepared and served by the youth. The breakfast is free, but offerings will be accepted and go towards helping defray the costs of the youth Winter retreat.
At 10:30am everyone will gather in the sanctuary for the children’s Christmas program and a message from Pastor Steve.
Feel free to invite family and friends!
A ladies event … join us as we take a look back at a few meaningful talks from past years’ women’s retreats. On November 30 we’ll watch Jill Briscoe’s 2017 talk on following Christ with endurance, and then have time to break out into discussion. Take this opportunity to go a little deeper in faith and community with other women.
