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.

Church Directory

Directory pictures will be taken in December and February. If you would like to have a “Generational Picture” taken of you, your children, your grandchildren and possibly your great grandchildren, we have three dates available in December – Sunday, 12/27 from 12:30-5:30 p.m., Monday, 12/28, from 2:00-9:00 p.m. and Tuesday 12/29 from 2:00 -9:00 p.m. These appointments will be on a first come, first served basis. The photographer will take your “Church Directory” picture first, then he will take whatever pictures of your family separate from the “Church Directory” pose. Information on the pictures is attached. Please click on the following link to schedule your appointment: https://www.securedatatrans14.com/ap/firstbaptistchurchcovington/index.php?page=10
