future planning committee

First Baptist Church of Lorena has been in existence for over 130 years.  During that time, there have been many changes, both in membership and in the physical worship areas.  We are now exploring where we need to be headed for the next ten years to accommodate our growing community.  Our Future Planning Committee has given FBC Lorena regular updates in order that we might be apprised of the ideas they are exploring.  Please feel free to read what they are doing.
