If you are in attendance at FBC, Kentwood today, you will have an opportunity to see some items to purchase for Operation Christmas Child, “Shoeboxes”.  Please take time to examine the contents of the box.



I can think of no better place to be today than in the Lord’s House.  If you are unable to attend in person, please turn in to a good worship service on TV, your computer, or phone.
