Our cemetery is ground made sacred by the bodies of saints buried there and the prayers of the faithful offered there. Our first pastor, Thomas Dawson, is interred in our cemetery along with other faithful church members whose lives span part of four centuries, from the 1700s to the 2000s.
Caring for Our Church Tablecloths
CARING FOR OUR CHURCH TABLECLOTHS
The book of Acts tells of a disciple named Tabitha (Dorcas in Greek) who was devoted to good works and acts of charity and made tunics and other clothing for those in need (Acts 9:36-42). In the same spirit, women of our church have devoted their skills to making tablecloths to be used in our church. These tablecloths represent a gift of time and service to God and to our church. In order to assure that the church's tablecloths are clean and ready for use when needed for church functions, the Food Services Committee asks that those desiring to use tablecloths sign them out with Joe in the church office. Used tablecloths must be laundered, including the removal of any stains, and checked in with Joe upon return. Non-FBC users must pay a cleaning fee when cloths are signed out and are required to fold used cloths and return them to Joe in the church office.
