#1 125th Anniversary Update
We’ll be celebrating 125 years as a church on Sunday, April 9th. Pastor Stan Beall, who recently retired as our Senior Pastor, will be back that morning to bring the message in both worship  services. We will also have an anniversary dinner that evening at 5:00 pm. One of the highlights of the anniversary weekend will be a reunion choir. If you would like to sing in the choir for this  special event, please contact Pastor Bryan by email at bryan@fbclaurel.com. Stay up to date with all our anniversary news by visiting our website at FBCLaurel.com/125.

 #2 Student Ministry Cake Auction
The Student Ministry will be going to MissionFuge this summer. MissionFuge is a camp that  combines discipleship and missions projects. To help offset the cost of this trip the students will be sponsoring their annual cake auction Sunday night, February 12th at 6:00 pm. There will be a student-led worship service in the chapel at 6:00 pm followed by the cake auction.

 #3 Upward Soccer Registration
Boys and girls from Preschool 4 all the way through 12th grade can now register for spring soccer. Upward Soccer staff are in the Ministry Corner this Sunday to answer your questions and help you get registered. You can get all the details including dates and fees online at LaurelUpward.com/soccer.


Join us February 12th at 6:00 pm in the Chapel for our Sunday Evening worship service.


Join us at 9:15 am on Sunday morning when we offer a variety of Sunday School small groups. We offer something for every age! Stop at the connections desk for details.


Children will be directed to meet the group leaders who will escort them to the services during the 10:30 worship service. After service, children will be returned to rejoin their parents. PARENTS: Please stay in the FLC until your child returns. We ask that all children either remain with their parents in service or be escorted to and from children’s services by their leaders.


The first Sunday of the month is designated as Deacons’ Fund Sunday. Please give toward the benevolent fund. The fund is intended primarily to help members of FBCL, and secondly to help residents of the greater Laurel area, with emergency needs.
