He descended into hell; the third day he rose again from the dead; He ascended into
heaven and sitteth on the right hand of God the Father Almighty; from thence he shall
come to judge the quick and the dead.

the forgiveness of sins; the resurrection of the body; and the life everlasting. Amen.

We Are Home!
The Flat Branch community is pleased to announce that our Church is in the home stretch of return to our customary Spiritual Life and Social Engagement. Last Sunday, we came together for Sunday Service in our beautiful Sanctuary and we plan to continue worshipping there on Sundays. Congregants will continue to be asked to observe the rules of social distancing and use only those pews which are not roped off. In addition, at the conclusion of the Service, the Congregation will be asked to leave by rows to avoid a bottleneck at the Sanctuary doors. We are also asking that all Congregants wear masks while in the Sanctuary. By observing these few restrictions, we hope to keep everyone safe and healthy. Any members of the Congregation who do not feel comfortable about attending the Service in the Sanctuary are welcome to remain in their cars in the Church parking lot and listen to the Service on their car radios at 92.7 FM. We are privileged to welcome Rev. Meredith Riedel as our guest and minister for this week's Service. We look forward to seeing you all.
Printed Programs will be available in the Narthex as usual. A complete program is also available on the Sunday Bulletin (newly added) page of this website. You are welcome to copy and paste it into a document and print it for yourself or open it in your phone or other device so you will have it for the Service.
Vacation Bible School
As a result of the current restrictions in North Carolina, Flat Branch has had to cancel its Vacation Bible School for this summer. However, our Church's youngest members were still in our thoughts and prayers. The church's teaching faculty has assembled age appropriate programs for each of the young people in our Congregation. These bags of fun and religious education contain reading material, crafts, and thought-provoking conversation starters which are suitable for the whole family. We wish everyone a great summer and look forward to seeing you soon!
