Thank you to all who contributed to our Local Children's Christmas Boxes. We received $411.

Hot Dogs and Chili will be provided we ask people to bring a dessert to share. Please sign up on back table to help us prepare. 


Wilson Teachers Meal  

Monday, November 25th – 2:30 pm

We will once again be providing Wilson School Teachers with a meal during their Parent/Teacher Conferences. The church will provide a full taco bar, we are asking for help with desserts and delivery. If you are willing to bake 1 dozen frosted cupcakes or can help with delivery please sign up on the back table.

Honoring our local Firemen

Every year we at JBC honor our local Firemen with a Thanksgiving meal as they are not able to enjoy the day with family at home. This is a great way to show them Christ’s love and our appreciation. If you can help by preparing a little extra or delivery please sign up on the back table. Please have items to the church at 11 am.

The Salvation Army is looking for Bell Ringers in their iconic red kettle fundraiser. Funds raised go to assist neighbors in the community all year long.
