December 4th - Deck the Halls at
the Hanging of the Greens!
Our wonderful intergenerational Hanging of the Greens dinner and celebration will be on Friday, December 4th! We will gather for dinner (catered by Casual Catering! Yum!) and then will deck the church halls together in fun and festive holiday spirit! There will be decorating for all ages, from young children on up! We will end the evening by gathering together in the sanctuary for some singing, some celebrating - and more! The more, the merrier! So come join us as we get the season started off right! Please let Julie Flowers know if you can join in the fun, so she will know if we have enough interest to hold this event or not! She loves doing it and is hoping you all will join her! So invite friends, invite family, invite anyone who loves to sing and decorate and have a great time getting in the holiday spirit!

we sing to members and friends of FBC who because of health or circumstances
