SERVE and First Baptist’s vision is that no person in our community will have to be homeless, no child will have to go to bed hungry, and no family will lose their dignity or let their dreams die because of poverty. SERVE, a program of NVFS, needs your help! Let us (the disciples of Jesus Christ) be a blessing for many families struggling just to eat and stay warm. Please drop off your items in the designated tables in the Fellowship Hall by February 4. Our minimum is 1000 items but let us do more!

School desegregation and integration were part of the critical battleground of the Civil Rights Movement during the 1960's. The Courageous Four is an original script that uncovers the story of the first four African-American teachers - Zella Brown, Maxine Coleman, Fannie W. Fitzgerald and Mary G. Porter - selected to integrate the Prince William County Public Schools faculties by being re-assigned to all-white elementary schools. Colgan Senior High School students and staff, working in partnership with CAPAC,Inc, have collaborated since February 2017 to develop and bring this historical theatrical production to the stage.
