At FBC we believe that individuals were meant to live in fellowship with God, and we value prayer as a vital communication link with Him. We value intercessory prayer as a responsibility of believers for each other and the world. We have an e-prayer chain to facilitate this. If you'd like to be on the prayer chain click below.
