 Marriage Moment

Lifelong marriage takes commitment. President George H.W. Bush and first lady Barbara recently celebrated their seventieth wedding anniversary.  When Mrs. Bush was asked how far you need to go to have a successful marriage her answer was intriguing: “Three quarters of the way.”

Follow this link to hear the short message explaining Mrs. Bush's wonderful advice.

>>>>3/4 of the Way

It is worth the minute and a half listen!

We are here for you! Call, email or stop on by!

 Tuesday Morning Bible Study

Tuesdays - 6:45am - 8:00am - STBC Conference Room

Every Tuesday morning a group of FiT men gather to study the week's Quarterly lesson and prepare for Sunday. We share prayer requests and try to make it through the lesson (with varying levels of success). This group is open to anyone who would like to attend. The conference room is just beside the church office at the main entrance.


Prayer Team for Pastor Search

Four members of FIT are serving on the Pastor Search Committee:  Robin Curry, Mike Brown, Krista Smith, and Erin Zimmerman.

We will keep you posted via email with specific prayer needs to lift up each week. We are getting organized now. Email Carol below if you have not already signed up in class!
