Twenty-five years ago, Rev. John Norman preached at FBC Four Oaks for the first time on the first Sunday in November. On the second Sunday, he was invited to serve as Pastor. On November 20, 2022, we celebrated twenty-five years with Pastor John. Tim Grady, Phyllis Toothman, and John Hatch spoke in appreciation of Pastor John. Eric Strickland performed the special music. The church presented John with a gift, including an original stained glass art piece from Barbara Keen. Thank you so much to John and his family for twenty-five years of selfless service.
