The Christmas season is our favorite time of year! Join us for any one of our fantastic holiday events and celebrate the birth of Christ!

Advent 2023

#Shinelight | An Advent Calendar of Intentional Acts of Kindness

How will you #Shinelight this Advent season?

This Christmas, we must not overlook the power of Christ’s light. The same light that leads the Wise Men leads us still. God guides our path from the heavens. Jesus reorients us with his light from the manger. And no matter where we go after we’ve encountered Christ, the great light flows through and from us still.

Join us this Christmas as we look for Christ’s light in the world and, in turn, #Shinelight for others to see.



Student Ministry Tree Lot | Nov. 18 - Dec. 9

Throughout the year, our students have the opportunity to experience retreats and mission trips that enhance their spiritual growth while allowing them to build meaningful relationships. The money we raise helps defer the cost of these activities so that more students can participate! Don’t forget to get your tree from FBC!


Celebrate Christmas | Dec. 2 10AM - 12PM

Join us on December 2 for Celebrate Christmas! Kids from birth to 5th grade and their families will share in this special Christmas celebration.

Families will work together through Activity Stations making wreaths, decorating cookies, crafting keepsake ornaments, and more!

Blue Christmas Service | Dec. 20 7PM

Christmas is not always the most wonderful time of year. For some of us, we have deep grief and empty chairs that remind us of who is not home for the holidays. If this is you, or you know someone struggling this year, then the Blue Christmas Service is designed with you (or that person) in mind. During this hour of worship, we will lament, pray, light candles, share memories, and offer words of hope for all of us who grieve.

Christmas Eve Services | Dec. 24

Christmas Eve falls on a Sunday this year, so we will have one morning service at 11AM that is Traditional (no Sunday School), a 5PM Modern service, and a 7PM Traditional service to close out the night. We hope to see you there!
