Our adult mission team will return to Honduras from Wednesday, October 21, through Thursday, October 29.  The men will work alongside Honduran men, building a house for a local family.  Women will host Vacation Bible School for the children, telling Bible stories to children who have not heard of Jonah or Nicodemus, and they will also interact with the children on craft activities and music.  There will be Bible studies for the Honduran women.  Let's make the world a better place and uncover the real human value in women and children.
For more information, please contact Joy Wise at joywise@embarqmail.com.

We will join with our neighbors from Brownson Memorial Presbyterian Church for an evening of not-so-scary fun!  Preschoolers and children are invited to dress up in non-scary costumes, and trunk or treat!  Please call or e-mail Brenda in the church office at (910) 692-8750 or bhafer@fbcsp.org to volunteer to decorate your trunk.  Awards will be given to the best trunks in both the family and youth categories.  We also need lots of candy!  Please place your individually wrapped candy in the Trunk or Treat bins located in the Welcome Center in the church office.
