Christmas at FBCF
Celebrate the Birth of Christ!
Christmas time is here and we want to celebrate with you at First Baptist Church Forney! We have several fun Christmas activities to make this season special - not to mention insightful preaching to make the true story of Christmas come alive.
If you are looking for a place where you will find encouraging, biblically-based messages, warm fellowship and beautiful music, then FBCF is the church for you. Our services and activities include something for the whole family. Joins us this Christmas!

Greatest Gift to Jesus Missions Offering
Our first annual Greatest Gift to Jesus Missions Offering Day is Sunday, Dec. 3. In honor of Christ's birth, throughout the month of December, we are collecting a special missions offering to accelerate the spread of the gospel from our city to the ends of the earth. 100% of this offering will go to missions. We encourage you to consider giving an offering over and above your regular tithe. You may give either in our services or online at fbcforney.org/give. Choose either the "GGTJ" or the FBC Missions" funds.
