Thanks for stopping by our website. Grace and Peace to you in the name of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ. For those of you at home, thank you for continuing to gather virtually for church! As believers in Jesus, we are devoted to each other just as the early church, recorded in Acts, was. Please let us know if you are in need. We are here. My family continues to pray for you daily.
7 All kinds of animals, birds, reptiles and sea creatures are being tamed and have been tamed by mankind, 8 but no human being can tame the tongue. It is a restless evil, full of deadly poison.James 3:7-8

Covid-19 Update for the FBCS Family
The FBCS Family keeps the health and safety of community and congregation as highest priority. We’ve met in the parking lot of our church as a phase one of returning to worship gatherings. Phase two will be to slowly resume gatherings inside our building. We ask that you follow the guidelines our leadership team and Covid Task Force created to protect yourself, your family, our community. We are increasing the tasks of our cleaning volunteers and will be sanitizing the building between services.
Ushers will greet you at the door and help you understand the guidlines.
