Welcome to the new website!

We want to welcome you to the newly redesigned website for Faith Evangelical Bible Church! This redesign process has taken a very long time, but now that it is finished, we are thrilled about the changes.

 

The one thing that has changed the most, as you can tell, is the design. Much of the menu systems and functionality have remained the same, though the menu system has also been revamped to help get you where you want to go even faster, with fewer clicks.

 

Please take a few minutes to familiarize yourself with the new layout. We think you will like the fact that you can get just about anywhere with just a few clicks. We are also available to help answer any questions about the new site and help your find your way around.

 

As always, we hope you enjoy your stay!

~in Christ
