    To the HACers of the 70's and 80's, there were two organists at FBC/HAC....Mrs Colsten handled the church organ duties and Mrs Godfrey handled the college organ duties.  Now, both are 80 years old and still at the organ. Dyer Baptist, where the Godfreys attend, recently started live streaming...

    Ed and Marge Wolber

    I read where Ed Wolber's wife, Marge, passed away in Florida.  I was unaware that they moved from Indiana. Does anyone know the circumstances of their move to FL? Was it health related or just wanting to live near their daughter? They were very faithful SS teachers for decades in Jr High II...

    How many families have returned to FBC?

    In another thread, it is written that many families left FBC for various reasons, some for the DH incidents in the 80's, some for the VN accusations in the 90's, etc. My question is, how many families have returned to FBC?  I know that Jerry Vargo has returned and is on staff, and I believe...

    What or Whom do you miss from FBC

    The topic "When were you last at FBC and for what reason" is a great thread.  I know in the past, there was a thread of whom you miss from HAC, so I wanted to change it to FBC. Who do you miss from seeing?  Maybe a SS teacher or singer....something along that line.  Or maybe, What do you miss...

    current FBC baptism numbers

    With FBC's new pastor and his discipleship program being implemented, can anyone offer insight how this has affected the number of baptisms at the church.  I try to view their live stream services, but it usually turns off before the reading of the names and the baptisms. I know that during...

    Kisses of Calvary

    Recently, I was reading "Kisses of Calvary", which is a book of Bro Hyles' sermons from the early 60's.  I was shocked at how different his preaching was in the earlier FBC days.  It was also coming from what seemed a more compassionate man. Here is a segment pulled from one of the sermons in...

    No organ at FBC on Sunday morning

    This is the first time that I can remember, but there was no organ at FBC this morning.  Mrs. Colsten was sick (told to the congregation by Bro Johnny and Pastor Wilkerson) but there was no substitute.  I know that the Colsten's have been extremely faithful in their attendance these past decades...

    A few months back, a former HB teacher who was also the FBC pianist admitted that he had inappropriate conduct with some HB students.  It was talked about for some time, but now, I haven't heard any updates.

    While my family and I were traveling on a summer vacation in the mid 90's, we were visiting the Four Corners Monument and one of the tour groups from WCBC were visiting at the same time.  The faculty member, I think by the name of Winter, was very gracious and gave us a copy of their tour...

    Corporal Punishment at HB

    This is "copy and paste" from the Do Right HAC page from Sherri Munger, one of the admins of the site. I believe that what she has written is completely false, a huge exaggeration and she's trying to cast even a darker cloud over FBC and HB.  Below is what she wrote: Sherri Munger-Tyler...
