Last words are meant to be lasting words. Before Jesus ascended into heaven, He told the disciples to "Go therefore and make disciples of all nations" (Matthew 28:19 ESV). At FBCD, we want to help you live on mission as you make disciples and proclaim the gospel throughout the world. We have several opportunities for you to take advantage of.

May is National Foster Care Month, a time to recognize that we can each play a part in enhancing the lives of children and youth in foster care. Starting in 1988, U.S. Presidents issued annual proclamations in recognition of National Foster Care Month to show appreciation and gratitude to foster parents across the nation. What role can you play in helping foster children, encouraging foster parents, or becoming a foster parent yourself? There will be a table in the foyer on Sunday mornings following the worship service to find out more information.
