Due to a shortage of storage space at FBC, the church has modified its policy on when and how donation boxes can be placed in the Fellowship Hall. This does not preclude qualified and approved donation campaigns and ministry efforts. We are simply minimizing untidiness on our campus and recognize our storage capacity limitations.
