Parents are to wait until the FBA Morning Carpool Staff has indicated for your child to exit the vehicle and proceed to the building.  Under no circumstances are elementary students to exit a vehicle prior to FBA Drop Off Staff being on site.   

FBA provides Extended Learning Session (ELS) for families who have a need for child care prior to 7:50 carpool.   

The safety, security and well-being of each child is of high importance to FBA and we appreciate your compliance with the carpool drop off procedures.

If you haven't already picked up an "angel", they will be available this Sunday morning in the Sanctuary foyer. Angel Tree is a ministry of Prison Fellowship which partners with churches to provide Christmas gifts for children on behalf of their incarcerated parents. Help make a child's Christmas a little brighter. You may turn in your wrapped gifts in the Atrium on November 19 and 26.


Mark your calendars now for December 10, 5 pm, in the Sanctuary!
