VBS Supply Drive


In order for Vacation Bible School to happen, we need children to attend, volunteers to lead, and lots of coffee…

But we also need supplies to help make it all a success! Over the next several weeks, we will be collecting donated supplies for VBS.

How to Give:

Check the bulletin board in the first floor breezeway between the sanctuary building and education building for a list of specific requests.

For example, we might ask for 10 containers of Vanilla Greek Yogurt, or 6 hula hoops, or 6 5-gallon buckets.

Simply take a tag (or more than one!) off the board and purchase the supplies listed on it. We’re also willing to borrow and return some of these items if you are willing to loan them.

Return the supplies and the tag to the church office by Friday, July 5th. We will make sure the supplies get to the right place.

Subscribe for Updated Lists

We will also include supply requests in this weekly email as requests come up. These requests will be an “all call” for as many of the item as we can get. So keep your eyes here for those items. Subscribe here.

Supplies for June 3-8, 2019:

  • Clean, empty soup/veggie cans

  • Cardboard paper towel tubes (please don’t cut in half or donate toilet paper tubes; we have plenty!)

If you have any questions about any supply donations, please don’t hesitate to reach out to Pastor Kristen.

Holy Land Tour Preparation Meeting


Thursday, June 27 at 6:00pm | Carreker hall

Are you planning to attend the Holy Land Tour in 2020? Then don’t miss this preparation session on June 27!

A Brief History of Israel

David will be leading our first in a series of preparation sessions for any people interested in joining in on the Holy Land trip in April of 2020. However, it needs to be emphasized that these sessions are not limited to only those wanting to go to the Holy Land – all are welcome!

If you are curious about the many complicated events and the rich and complex biblical background of this tiny slice of the Middle East, we would love to welcome you to be with us. Each month for the next twelve months, we will be delving into the history, culture, geography, current events and biblical background of Israel and Palestine as you might never have heard it.

David will also be sharing outside reading materials and worksheets that you will find helpful for your Bible reading and Sunday School preparation. So come and join us at 6:00pm in Carreker Hall!

Get to know your church! Every Wednesday evening in May, during the after-dinner hour, we will be presenting informal talk-show-style interviews of your fellow churchgoers.

Some of these folks you know, some you don’t know, and some you THINK you know. Discover their life stories, what makes their hearts sing, how they came to be at FBC Decatur, what their dreams are for our church, their favorite books, movies, jokes, and more!

Come for dinner between 5:30pm and 6:30pm and stay for FBC Stories from 6:30-7:30pm in Carreker Hall (May 1, 8, 15, 22, and 29). For a full list of opportunities, please visit: fbcdecatur.com/wednesday
