FBCM Weekly Updates 6-12-2020


Due to no bulletins at this time – The alter arrangement this Sunday is in memory of Ray and Margaret Robertson’s family – Henry Robertson, Lois, Squirt, Pete Satterfield and Clarkie Henderson, and in honor of Richie, Jenn, Colten and Caleb Robertson and Tracy, Ritchie, Bryce and Macy James.

Church services are indoors again this Sunday. There will be an 8:30 am service, an 11:00 am service, and a 6:30 pm service. Please note that there will be no Sunday school, Kids Worship, or Children’s Church.

We want to make sure that everyone stays and feels safe.  We have tried to create a safe environment for everyone that would like to attend. If you are not ready to be out in crowds at this time, we will be sharing the 11:00 service on YouTube.  Please enter the building keeping the 6′ distance and do not congregate blocking the flow of people.  When using the elevator please only one person or family on it at one time.  We will have a host to greet you and will have hand sanitizer for you to use.  When leaving the building please use all 4 of the exits, this will allow everyone to keep the 6′ distance.

We need to focus on social distancing, keeping a 6′ distance from anyone else (that would be about 2 arm lengths). It is strongly recommended to wear a face covering when indoors and cannot keep a 6′ distance; young children age 2 and younger should not wear a face covering.

Manna Market Report:

In the process of buying items for our upcoming Manna Market we have run into limits on the numbers of canned goods we can purchase. Specifically only 4 cans each of most canned vegetables, so we are appealing to the Congregation for donations of such items as canned potatoes, green beans, lima beans, diced tomatoes, sweet peas.  Donations have fallen off considerably the past two months other than what we have received from some outside sources. I know you great folks will rise to the occasion and help us out. Thank you in advance.

The bins to drop off food donations will continue to be put out Tues. 9am-12 noon and Thurs. 4pm to 6pm.

JOY Seniors,

Remember the good times we’ve had and don’t despair.  Keep your chin up because we are going to meet together again soon.  Even though we are not scheduling lunches and outings during this time, we’ve some special times planned for the future.

One activity that is scheduled is the Fall Jubilee in Gatlinburg, TN Sept. 28-30.  So far the Turners, Carmichaels and Parnells are all scheduled to go.   Pray that everything will be open then and our time of isolation will be over.   Call Nita Parnell at 336-578-0012 if you’d like to join them on this extra special trip.


We look forward to making plans for everyone in a safe and secure environment as soon as it’s feasible.
