The Communications Committee and Properties Committee have been working together on a joint project to freshen up church landscaping with colorful flowers and plants.

With Easter Sunday approaching , VOLUNTEERS ARE NEEDED to roll up their sleeves to assist in the preparation and planting. Two workdays, Saturday, March 9 and  Saturday, March 23, have been scheduled from 9 am to 1 pm. Volunteers are asked to bring hand tools and shovels labeled with their name. Workday participants will also want to bring water to drink, sunscreen, and appropriate shoes and clothes for working outside. Lunch will be provided.

Long-time FBC member and award-winning landscape architect Bob Anderson has generously donated his services to design a landscaping plan and coordinate the project for the church.

To make room for new plants, amaryllis plants donated by Johnny and Wilma Jones will either be transplanted on the property or sold for $10 each on Sunday, March 10 before and after Worship.

Bob Anderson said Johnny Jones had donated the plants to FBC because they were his favorite blooming plant.  “He had them in his home in west Austin and loved them so much that he wanted them in front of his church, “ Bob said.  The plants have been on the FBC property for at least 15 years. “Johnny always loved the outdoors and helped maintain the grounds of his church. We hope some of these plants will be sold to members who would like to take a little bit of Johnny and Wilma home with them,” he said.

Please call the church at 512-476-2625 if you have any questions.
