Bulletin & Upcoming Events
We are making the transition away from in-person announcements as we have so much going on as a church. How do we pick what deserves to be shared each Sunday? Everything we have going on is of equal importance! We'll continue to highlight the, "next big thing, on Sundays and we'll do our very best to update this page each Thursday afternoon to reflect our upcoming events and announcements!
Take a look below and if you have any questions about what you see, give us a call at (706) - 788 - 2214 or contact our secretary at email@example.com.

On Saturday, October 15th, at 10 am in the FLC gym, all ladies are invited to make your own decorative rug, led by Wendy Myers. The cost for rug-making is $20 and you need to pay by October 1st. However, if you just want to come and fellowship, you may do that as well. Fill your mug at our coffee station and there will also be light refreshments available. Please sign up at the Welcome Center.
Get ready! The Media Center will be coming to you in the near future! We are in the process of putting all books in our library in an online library system. This software will allow you to search and look at the titles we have on your computer or phone! It will also send out emails when books are checked out, checked in, and are past due. We are beginning to add emails to the patron list and just want you readers to be aware of the notices that will start coming into your inbox.
Information update forms
If you have not filled out an Information Update Form or you have moved or your phone number or email has changed, please fill one out. This will help us insure that your information is correct in the office, in case we should need to contact you (ex. service cancellation due to weather). This is not members only but also if you are a regular attendee. You may also indicate on the form if you would like to receive our Quarterly Newsletter (which will be coming out at the end of September) and if you would like to be on the automated call Prayer Chain or the text Prayer Chain or perhaps you would just prefer to receive an email. The forms are located at the Welcome Center. Return it to the church office, the drop box outside the office, the Welcome Center or put it in the offering plate. Thank you so much for your cooperation.

Explore the Bible series. It really delves into scripture that we
probably would not explore on our own, especially Old Testament
books, and helps to reveal the gospel throughout. Ours is a diverse
class with a depth of biblical knowledge and insight. We have a
lesson leader rotation, which is great too.”
