Happy Father’s Day

June 18, 2017

VBS Pre-Registration
Avoid the rush on opening night and pre-register this morning in the foyer for this year’s Vacation Bible School. You can also register online at FBCLaurel.com/VBS.  This year’s VBS music CDs will be given out to the first 50 families to pre-register. Tell your friends and neighbors and encourage them to sign up their kids as well for an exciting week of discovering the God of the universe! Please have children dress in play clothes and wear closed toe shoes during the week as there is a recreation component and they will be playing outside.


Our Sunday Evening Services will break for the Summer. They will resume September 24th.

Bible Study

Join us at 9:15 am on Sunday mornings for our Adult Bible Study small groups. Stop at the connections desk for details. Our children’s 9:15 am Bible Study groups will be breaking for the Summer. Children’s Bible study will  resume on August 6th.


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.


June 18th the Basic Christian Study Bible Study class begins a 8-week practical course on How to REALLY study the Bible. Developing a schedule for personal Bible study; interpreting Bible passages; writing down truths that the Holy Spirit teaches from the Scripture; and applying them to daily life…and more…are all included in this course. Join us Sundays at 9:15 am in Room B110b for an interactive, fun and fellowship filled prayer and Bible study time.

The Baby Bottle Campaign contributions from FBCL were $2,454. Thank you for your support!
