FBC Christmas Card Post Office

The Month of December - The Christmas Post Office (CPO) is an intra-church post office located in the Callaway Room. The CPO allows members to share Christmas cards with other church members while benefitting the Lottie Moon Christmas Offering for International Missions.

  • Step 1: SEND by preparing your cards as usual but without postage.
  • Step 2: GIVE what you would have spent on postage to the Lottie Moon Christmas Offering.
  • Step 3: RECEIVE cards by stopping by the post office in the Sanctuary Foyer each week.

Even if you do not send cards through the CPO, others may have sent cards to you!

Book Sale

Used Books for Sale - Beginning at 6:00 p.m. on Wednesday, December 9th. These books were previously in the church library and will be located on the first floor of the Education Building in rooms 103 & 104. You may purchase books any time the church is open, including during the daytime hours, and on Wednesdays and Sundays.
