First Galveston Announcements

Here you can find announcements for upcoming events. If you need more long range planning, please see the Calendar Page.

  • Ethiopia MISSION TRIP COMMISSIONING

    On July 15, 2018 we will be commissioning our Ethiopia Mission Team during the Sunday Service. Please pray for their safe travel and mission success.

  • ECC / CHRISTMAS IN JULY

    Most of you are familiar with OCC (Operation Christmas Child) through Samaritan's Purse). We participated in this last year during our "Christmas in July." This year we have the opportunity to make a direct impact with children in Ethiopia through our ECC (Ethiopian Christmas Child). Rather than purchasing items to place in a box & paying for freight, our missions' team will take funds over with them during our July mission trip to purchase school supplies & backpacks. The average family spent about $30 per box last year. So please consider giving the same amount you would have spent on boxes for OCC to ECC over the next several weeks. Just write "H.O.M.E." (Hands On Mission Efforts) in the memo of the check made out to FBC Galveston ... and pray for our team as they travel!
