We need your help! We are collecting cards to show appreciation for our law enforcement! We want to give cards to State Troopers, the Sheriff’s Office, and the Thomson Police Department.
Handmade or store-bought cards are both great. Kids, drawings would be extra special, too! Please have these to the church ASAP so we can deliver. You may drop them off at the blue bin underneath the portico (at Fellowship Hall entrance). Please help us flood these departments with encouragement and support from the church!
We are looking forward to our 6th annual Wonderfully Stitched event! Through this event, we share God's love with high school girls in the Thomson area who are in need of back-to-school clothes and supplies! These supplies will be delivered to the homes of the recipients this year. You can support this ministry by donating to our Go & Tell Fund. You can also donate gift cards (Old Navy, Target, TJ Max), new teenage girl book bags, school supplies, and accessories.
Join us in praying for the girls that we serve. Pray for the upcoming school year and for seeds of faith to be planted through this ministry.
Join us as we celebrate these upcoming baptisms!

Let us know you are coming! We need you to register for worship if you plan on attending in person. You can register online at www.fbcthomson.org or you can call the church office to make a reservation. This will help us plan more effectively and have enough overflow seating set up in the Fellowship Hall if necessary. We will continue to offer online services via live-streaming if you are unable to attend or don't feel comfortable attending in-person services yet. We look forward to worshiping in person and continuing to worship online with you!
While on campus we ask that you practice all safety guidelines. Make every effort to keep you, your family, and our church family safe. We encourage you to wear a mask, wash your hands, practice social distancing, and if you or someone in your family doesn't feel well please stay home. Please be diligent about your health and ours.
While we are in uncertain financial times, it is as important as ever for us to trust in God’s providential care and to give so that the Kingdom’s work can continue. We are still doing ministry, supporting missions, helping with disaster relief, and we still have bills and staff to pay. We encourage you to mail or drop by the church office your tithe and gifts. We also have online giving available on our website and via the Realm Connect app.
Pastor David will continue his sermon series in Amos.
Join us in person, listen on WTHO 101.7 FM, or watch our live-stream online.
