It started Monday evening when a group of over 20 men from FBC Sanger gathered with 400 men at FBC Decatur to hear from God. God used that gathering to pull one of our men to Himself.

These men are more than co-workers, they are friends and fellow servants of Jesus. Your staff has one goal and works in one direction. Let's make sure these men feel our love and appreciation for all they do....Keep Reading

But the most important fact from yesterday is that God was glorified. There are not many churches that could undergo a major change as we did with such minor issues. You, the members of FBC Sanger, are the reason. Thank you. ...Keep Reading
