GOOD FRIDAY NIGHT OF WORSHIP
APRIL 19, 2019
We hope you'll join us for something brand new this Easter Season at FBC - a Good Friday Night of Worship. This evening is an opportunity for us to worship God under the weight of the cross, remembering the depths of all that Christ endured on our behalf. It's going to be a sobering but incredibly meaningful night, and we believe it will bless you deeply. Everything starts at 7:00 in the Worship Center on Good Friday. We're welcoming our community to be a part, so feel free to pick up an invite card this week in the Worship Center and bring along a friend, neighbor, or relative with you!
If you have kiddos, please note that our Childrens Ministry has planned special programming for this evening for ages Nursery - Age 4.
