In keeping with the State of Emergency declared by Gov. Roy Cooper and public health officials regarding the Coronavirus outbreak, our Senior Pastor, Dr. Ricky A. Woods, and the Board of Deacons have prayerfully decided to err on the side of caution and suspend Sunday services until further notice. The church office also has been closed.

However, we will hold a smaller worship service on Wednesdays at 7pm.

A member of the Deacon Board will reach out to you with further communication and ongoing support. Feel free to contact the church office for further information (704-372-1075) or to email questions to info@fbcwest.org. 

Please continue to make your financial contributions through online giving, by mail or dropping off your tithe and donations in the church mailbox.
