Join us on Wednesday nights from April 11th to May 23rd as we dive into a teaching series led by Dr. David Jordan, FBCD Senior Pastor, and Matt Snyder, FBCD Pastor to Young Adults.

This is a series based on Dr. Jordan's book Living with Faith, and will explore the people and places surrounding key figures in the Bible.

If you've been wanting to learn more about the scriptures and what it means to walk them out, then make plans to join us for this in-depth study!

Facebook and FBC Decatur

Do you want to receive updates from First Baptist Decatur on Facebook?

Some of you may have noticed that you stopped seeing updates from FBCD on Facebook. It's not because we have stopped posting content, but rather that Facebook has changed the way you see posts in your newsfeed.

It is now programmed in such a way that you primarily see Facebook posts from friends and family, then from Pages that you have interacted with the most in the past.

But there is a highly-recommended way to ensure you never miss a post from FBCD! Simply follow the steps below.

Step 1: Go to FBC Decatur's Facebook Page and look for the "following" button.

Step 3: Select "See First" so there is a checkmark beside it. You can also choose to turn notifications "on" so that you'll be alerted to whenever we make a post.

Step 4: Share our posts on Facebook!

If you have any questions, then don't hesitate to reach out to communications@fbcdecatur.com

Help Immigrants Being Deported

Except for the clothes on their back, the majority of undocumented immigrants who are deported directly from detention centers to their homeland have absolutely nothing with them when they arrive back home. El Refugio, a ministry of hospitality and visitation serving immigrants detained at Stewart Detention Center, is collecting Carry-on Bags with shoes and pants to give to immigrants who are scheduled to be deported.

Please consider donating a bag with a pair of men's shoes sizes 8-10 and a pair of men's pants, size 32x34, which we will deliver to El Refugio and the Stewart Detention Center each time we visit. The maximum dimensions for carry-on bas are 9"x14"x22", including handles and wheels.

Bags are shoes can be delivered to Columbia Presbyterian Church. If no one is in the church office, the items may be left in the large bin located by the office door in the breezeway between the sanctuary and education building.

Or if you would prefer, Don Hammonds will receive the donations for you at FBCD. You can contact Don at dbh4@att.net.

Thank you for your help! Regardless of where you fall politically on this issue, this is about honoring and preserving the human dignity of individuals.
