Thank you to everyone who came and supported our 3-night meeting this past week. Everyone in attendance surely received a blessing as we gathered together and listened to the preached word.

Thank you to Brother Edward and Sister Betty for letting them stay in their home, and thank you to everyone who furnished the meals during the week.

Exciting news!! Thanks to Sister Jarrett McWhorter, our new Church website is up and running! It will be updated every week with the current bulletin, important dates, and pictures from recent events. Be sure to check it out. The website is frankpbc.org.
We will be having our annual "Happy Birthday Jesus" Party next Sunday night, December 1st, in place of evening services. It will start at 6 pm. The theme is "PJs and Pancakes," and we encourage all kids to wear their favorite Christmas pajamas. Every year, we try to give back to the community in some way. This year, 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.
