Baby Bottle Blessings Begins

A “Baby Bottle Blessings” campaign to benefit Pregnancy Support Services of Durham will run from Sunday, January 18 through Sunday, February 15.  PSS is a Christian ministry providing alternatives to abortion by supporting women facing the challenges of unplanned pregnancy.  You can help support this ministry by taking home a baby bottle and filling it with your silver change.  Bottles and instructions will be available near the welcome desk on the ground floor of the North Tower throughout the campaign (as well as the North Tower Resource Center and Sanctuary foyer) and need to be returned on February 15 to a collection box there also.  For questions, contact the campaign liaison Lisa Estes, or visit the PSS website, www.pregnancysupport.org, for more information.

We are asking that the 2015 FBC Financial Budget be amended to allow for compensation adjustments for our Pastoral Staff and Administrative personnel.  Our Pastoral Staff includes all of our Pastors and Directors. Administrative personnel include all those who serve us, whether it is in secretarial services, building engineering areas, and other individuals who are on the regular payroll of FBCD.  We are very pleased to recommend these salary adjustments which include a Cost of Living Adjustment (COLA) for all employees and additional increases as deemed necessary. Copies of the budget amendment are available in the church office. Should you have any questions or concerns, please contact one of the elders.
