Check out one of our favorite ushers, Ms. Doris Butler, live on TPT-Live with Sheletta Brundidge talking about the excitement of Christmas. We’ll have to be sure to get her autograph on Sunday because she’s a star!
Thank you to the North High boys and the De La Salle girls basketball teams for helping with this years turkey baskets. On Thursday, the North High team handled all the heavy lifting, carrying those heavy turkeys and canned goods from the truck into the building. Then on Friday the De La Salle team arrived to help fill the 200+ baskets. Thanks to both teams, we were able to donate 207 baskets filled with turkey and all of the fixings.
We would be remiss if we didn’t also acknowledge our faithful servants within FMBC. They showed up in full force to assist and we are grateful to each of them as well.
As the proverb says, “Many hands makes light work.” That was proven to be true this weekend. Thanks, everyone!
Each of the four local news outlets were present at FMBC to cover the Celebration of Life service for young Da’Qwan Jones Morris. The service was standing room only, attended by a host of Da’Qwan’s family, his high school football and basketball teams, coaches and his FMBC family. Pastor Gallmon preached an encouraging word to the family to keep looking to God for their strength, and to the many young people in attendance, he reminded them that they are the salt and the light. It is through each of them that true change can happen in this nation as it relates to guns and gun violence. He encouraged them to honor Da’Qwan’s life by making the commitment to be the change.
