Thank you, Sister Jarrett McWhorter, for our new Church website! It will be updated every week with the current bulletin, important dates, and pictures from recent events. Be sure to check it out at frankpbc.org.
Be in prayer for Sister Linda Gail Lewis as she has back surgery in Columbus at Piedmont Hospital on December 3. We pray that she has a successful surgery and a speedy recovery.
We will have our annual "Happy Birthday Jesus" party tonight in lieu of our evening service. It will start at 6 pm. The theme is "Pjs and Pancakes" and we encourage all kids to wear their favorite Christmas pajamas. We have decided to make baskets for local children who are currently battling cancer - an attempt to make their hospital visits and stays a little more bearable. We have a total of 10 children, so please bring an item for each basket. (Example: coloring books, books, stickers, little games, etc.) Please make plans to join us for a night of food, fellowship, prizes, and fun celebrating the birth of our Savior.
