Sunday, December 14th: Still Waters
On this Third Sunday of Advent you are invited to step away from the busyness of the season, to slow down and listen for the voice of the Christ child whispering hope and love into your life. FBC’s Spiritual Life Team invites you to travel with them to Rolling Ridge Retreat Center in North Andover for an evening called ‘Still Waters’.
Still Waters – a Sunday evening conversation around food, spirituality and compassion. This is for all those who seek a spirituality that values harmony with creation, works for peace and justice, receives gifts from other traditions, appreciates silence, music and joy.
On this evening we will begin at 5:30 PM with an awesome meal from Rolling Ridge’s chef before gathering for a time of contemplative worship, weaving silence, prayer, song and conversation. Cost is $20 per person which includes the meal and program. Our church van will leave FBC at 4:30 PM and return approx. 8:30 PM. Please RSVP by December 10th to the church office

On Friday evening, December 19th from 5:30-9:30 PM let FBC’s Julie Flowers, Emily Harting and Faith Barbin feed, watch, and entertain your children while you do whatever it is you’d like for several hours!
