YOUTH DISCIPLE NOW REGISTRATION ENDING SOON

It’s sort of like an in-town retreat. Registration is open now online. The cost is $60/p (scholarships available), and you’re welcome to invite friends! If you have questions, contact Kevin Schaub. To find out more and to register, GO HERE. Deadline to register is February 28.

PRAYING FOR THE CITY OF DURHAM

Do you have a burden for the lost surrounding our church in the downtown area? If so, you are invited to a time of prayer for the unreached around FBC in a concentrated way during the month of March. You may join us in mind and heart from your homes, lunch breaks, or quiet times, but we also want to invite you join us in person!  Beginning with March 1 and for the next three Thursdays in March from 7:00-8:00pm, Sara and Ben Zweigle invite you to their home for such a time. If interested, contact them or feel free to join them at their home on March 1 at 7:00pm.
