Just in case you didn't know, our SS class has a Facebook Group that is set up for sharing information between class members.

You can search for the Group using the title "FBC Tanner SS Class" and you should find it. It's a Closed Group, meaning that it is intended for class members, visitors, and church staff only and not just the public at large. Once you submit a request to join the group you will be accepted.

The Christmas Celebration Invitation can also be accessed on our Group Page. So, join us on FB today!
