TeamKid! Workers Needed
Volunteers are needed to help with TeamKid!,
our Wednesday evening children’s program, that starts up again on September 6.
Workers will serve on a rotating basis, so it is not an every week commitment.
If you are able to serve, please see Kelly Pfenninger or contact the church office.
Choir practice will resume Wed., Sept. 6 at 6:00 PM in the choir room. New members are gladly welcome! We are looking forward to October when we will begin rehearsals for our Christmas musical. Again, new members are gladly welcome. Please contact Laurie Smith for more information on how you can be involved at 302-453-7498.
If you can play a guitar, you are needed on Sunday mornings.
Please see Pastor Arlen to see how you can help fill this need and enhance our Sunday
worship services.
It has been  decided that our annual fall fest and the church picnic will be combined this year, to be held on 
September 23,2017.
This decision was made in order to help FBC in reaching its goal of community outreach, while we welcome everyone to attend the primary goal is reaching the lost in our community.  We will have games, blowups and food for people to eat. Most importantly,it will be a time where people can meet us and have a good time doing it. We are hoping that you will help us in the following ways: registration, taking care of a game or blowup, helping prepare food, or helping serve food. You name it, we probably need your help doing it. We will also need grills to help prepare hot dogs and hamburgers. Thank you in advance for your prayers and assistance!

Crocheting for Missions
Do you enjoy crocheting or would you like to learn how? We are forming a
group to crochet sleeping mats for the homeless out of plastic shopping
bags. The mats can be used to form a barrier between the cold, wet
ground and a sleeping bag. The crocheting group will meet at church on
the first and third Thursdays of each month beginning on Thursday,
August 3 at 10:00 A.M.
If you have a size “K” crocheting hook bring it with
you. If you are interested in being a part of this group, please sign up on
the bulletin board. If you have any questions, please contact Barbara Golt
