Mike Hardy

Senior Pastor

… originally from Covington Ga, and I’ve been married to my best friend, Jackie for 35 years. Our two kids are grown and married and we have one fantastic granddaughter and grandson! I love reading, and playing a little golf, but I really enjoy spending time with my family.

My favorite scripture verse is Philippians 4:13, “I can do all things through Him who strengthens me”. (NASB).

No, wait it is Job 19:23-27

“Oh that my words were written! Oh that they were inscribed in a book! “That with an iron stylus and lead They were engraved in the rock forever! “As for me, I know that my Redeemer lives, And at the last He will take His stand on the earth. “Even after my skin is destroyed, Yet from my flesh I shall see God; Whom I myself shall behold, And whom my eyes will see and not another. My heart faints within me!”(NASB)

No, wait, it is…All of them!

My true passion is to live and lead authentic lives of faith in the Lord Jesus Christ!

One of my favorite verses: John 4:23-24 – “Yet a time is coming and has now come when the true worshipers will worship the Father in the Spirit and in truth, for they are the kind of worshipers the Father seeks. God is spirit, and his worshipers must worship in the Spirit and in truth.”

Marty Burns

Worship Ministry Assistant

I have been a resident of Social Circle for 20 years and a member of FBC since August 2000. I have 4 grown children and 6 precious grandchildren. My most favorite pastime is going to the mountains every summer with them.

My long-time favorite verse has been Jeremiah 29:11, “for I know the plans I have for you”, declares the Lord, “plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future”. His plan for me was 40 years of education (public, private, and homeschool) and that was my passion until 2015 when I retired and God revealed a new plan.

God’s new plan has been for me to assist in the music ministry of FBC and I have very much enjoyed working with the staff here at the church. As I grow older and think on my “future”, two other verses have become favorites…2 Timothy 4:7, “I have fought the good fight,  I have finished the course, I have kept the faith; henceforth, there is laid up for me a crown of righteousness, which the Lord, the righteous Judge, shall give me at the day…” And then, Matthew 25:21, “Well done, thou good and faithful servant…enter thou into the joy of thy Lord.”
