To ensure the safety of everyone, the men will put the food in carry out containers and hand out bottles of water.  We will have tables set up outside and in the FLC, you are welcome to stay and eat on the grounds or you can take it home with you

Blessing Overload!!!  God sent 19+ people to our house on Saturday September 12 and 6 of them returned on Saturday September 19 to overwhelm us with love in action. Even Pastor Trent drove an hour to and from Oakboro to help out. Totaling the man/woman hours spent here by our beloved friends at FBC is beyond my calculation ability. Our house, porches, sidewalk and driveway were pressured washed + a ceiling fan was installed in our extra bedroom + our back yard gate was fixed + our driveway was sealed + our back porch and out building were painted. Our neighbors are astonished and jealous. A HUGE witness for Christ has been on display 2 weekends in a row. We can’t remember a time when so much laughter was expressed and so many tall tales floating back and forth among us. For us it was awesome to spend time with dear friends, reminiscing, updating, and catching up. Our “love in” meter is off the charts. With more appreciation than we can express, THANK YOU!!! We truly love and miss each one of you.  Steve & Lucy Wilson

We need lots of CANDY for Trunk-Or-Treat on Friday, October 30 from 5-6:30. If you would like to decorate your trunk and pass out candy please see Graham!
