150th Anniversary

This year will be a very special milestone for the FBC Family of Faith. God has blessed FBC with 150 years of ministry.
The Anniversary Team has chosen a theme: Psalms 78:4, “We will not hide them from their descendants; we will tell the next generation the praiseworthy deeds of the Lord, his power, and the wonders he has done.” Rooted in the Past, Growing into the Future.
Please save these dates for the Anniversary Weekend, Saturday and Sunday, October 19-20. Several events are being planned for these days and the hope is many former members, pastors and friends will be coming to Murphysboro to be a part of the celebration.
The first item being planned is the 150th Anniversary Edition of the All Church Pictorial Directory with more activities to follow.
The new 150th Anniversary Banners are also now hanging in the Sanctuary. They are stunning. A beautiful reflection ofour history as well as a witness to all those who see and attend our services. Thank you Chris DeShazo for your amazing designs. We love the bold colors and inspirational message!! Don’t forget and mark your calendars…the 150th Anniver- sary weekend is October 19-20.
Be sure to watch the website, bulletins and the “Bapties” for more details on the upcoming 150th Anniversary Celebration as they become available.

2019 Pictorial Directory

This fall, October 19-20, FBC will be celebrating its 150th Anniversary with a weekend filled with great events. Lifetouch took photographs March 5th-7th. By Monday morning, March 4th, there were no available appointments…the schedule was fully booked. The photographers were amazed and overwhelmed by those participating.
If you were unable to have your photograph taken for the directory, feel free to submit a photo to the church office. It will be scanned and returned so that you and your family will appear in the 2019 FBC Pictorial Directory.
If you have questions concerning adding your family to the directory, please feel free to contact Kay in the church office.
