PAST MESSAGES

Fortified 

Our Ultimate Fortification
Ephesians 6:18-19
Dr. Don Wilton
In so many ways we are living in difficult days, and maybe a few of us even are unsure of how to be thankful. Some people are depressed, others are sick, many have lost their jobs, and many are in need. But rest assured that God understands the world in which we live and the issues we face. He reminds us in His Word that in the last days there will be perilous times. However, He did not leave us alone to face the difficult issues and circumstances of the day.
As Dr. Wilton concludes his sermon series “Fortified,” he teaches us today about our ultimate fortification—prayer. Powerful, mandated by our Father in heaven, prayer is the ultimate means by which God fortifies His children. Listen today as Dr. Don encourages Christians to be faithful, not only in putting on the whole armor of God,  but also in communicating with our Father in heaven who loves us.

We can’t wait to allow groups to begin meeting on campus for ministry events. In accordance with CDC and DHEC regulations, the following factors will influence every request to meet indoors on campus:

 

  1. The current community activity of COVID-19.
  2. The size and activity of the group and the size of the venue being requested.
  3. The overall church calendar and the need to clean between groups.

 

  • The FBS staff is meeting weekly over the local activity of the virus, which will influence our decision on what activities can meet on campus for the following two weeks.
  • In order to keep everyone’s safety and health our number one priority, the church also reserves the right to cancel any church-sponsored events, even up to the day of the event.
