Deaconess Board: It’s almost Christmas! As we begin the Advent Season of the celebration of the birth of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ, there is no better way to express the love of our Savior than through the sending of Christmas Cards to our FUBC Family. The FUBC Family Christmas Post Office is now open. No stamps are required. Place your addressed cards in the alphabetized slots of the PO or the small mailbox on the table beside the FUBC PO. Please remember to check the FUBC PO often, between now and December 30th. If you have any questions, please see any Deaconess.

For more information, contact Sister Romonia Lewis.
