Generations of Change

Is it just coincidence or the prompting of God’s spirit, that every ten years or so, the congregation of FBC launches an effort to enlarge, renovate, or reshape our facilities? Our church history is filled with powerful stories of such efforts. These stories often highlight challenges that were overcome.

As we have throughout our history, we can make sure FBC’s facilities are equipped to reach the next generation, and at the same time, launch modern-day church plans like “Fresh Expressions of Church.”

Nan and I believe there is no better place to invest the resources God has entrusted to us. We are excited that our gift will be a part of the coming decades of ministry at FBC.
