There will be a single check-in station where you can conveniently complete the process for your child, and you can sign in for the rest of your family, too, all at once.
• Grades 4, 5, & 6 participate in the Main Session. If your older kiddo hasn’t gotten an FBC Kids 4-5-6 Grade binder yet, they can grab theirs from under the giving box at the back of the auditorium! These are for kids to keep, and they can add to their binders each week.

TEEN LEADERSHIP CONFERENCE (TLC) – 12/28-30
SIGNUPS OPEN NOW!
It’s that time of the year again and TLC registration is open! TLC, the Teen Leadership Conference, is a really cool event where Freshmen to college-age students can come together with other churches and hear Christian speakers and be encouraged together. Dates for this trip are December 28-30. Registration is $185 and open now until December 1 (for a free hoodie) and December 15 is the final deadline (but no hoodie).
This is a really amazing event and all eligible students are encouraged to attend.
But, this isn’t just for the students. We also need adult leaders (over 21) to help with this trip. This can range from driving vans, to working in the kitchen, to being a leader at the camp, to simply committing to pray for the trip. The fee for adult leaders will be covered, so this is primarily a time commitment from you. ** If you are interested in being a chaperone or a kitchen worker, please check with Rachel or Tara first! Thanks. **
If you have any questions about TLC, please talk to Rachel Montgomery or send her an email.
