Roswell, GA 30075
Directions: From GA 400, go west on Holcomb Bridge Road (exit 7B) approximately 3.7 miles.
Holcomb Bridge will change names to Crossville Road when you cross over Hwy 9, and then to West Crossville when you cross Crabapple Rd.
FBC will be on your left. You can't see the church from the road, but there is a brick sign.
Since the road is a divided highway, you have to pass us, make a U-turn and come back.
