In 2014 the leadership of FBC Kettering came together for a time of prayer and re visioning the future of what God has for us. Beginning on January 11, 2015 Pastor Chad will be preaching a sermon series entitled FBK 20/20. During this 8 weeks series he will lay out great detail on where the leadership senses God taking us as a church. Each week during the series we will update this page with information and visuals that will help you see the exciting places God is taking us a church. You may also follow along weekly as the vision is shared by listening to the weekly podcasts.
