Christmas at FBCF

Christmas is a season of spiritual reflection on the foundations of the Christian faith. It’s also a celebration of the birth of Jesus Christ! 

At First Baptist Church Forney, we have a full lineup of celebrations and concerts for the Christmas season.  Don't miss these opportunities to hear excellent music, participate in some fun activities and make new memories with family and friends as we celebrate the birth of our Savior!
