On Sunday, May 21st, we will be holding our annual Student Sunday. All students are asked to participate! Students will be helping to lead the many aspects of our service on this day. Students will help greet, take up the morning offering, lead in the scripture reading, teach Sunday School, and lead in the singing and music portion of our service.
Preaching at our Student Sunday Morning service will be Dr. Matthew Hall

Hall, assistant professor of church history, has served as vice president for academic services at Southern Seminary since 2013, directing Southern Seminary’s enrollment, library, and assessment initiatives.

Following our morning services, we will hold our Graduation Celebration/ Youth Meal. This will function as our last youth meal for our summer camp students to work and receive credit as well as be a time where we honor our current graduates at FBC. We are asking all summer campers to bring a dessert (limit 1 dessert per family).
