About FBC

I'm New Here

Attending a church for the first time can be intimidating.  “Will they accept me?… I know some things but not everything. We get all that!  So, here are a few thoughts that might help break the ice.

Events

Never doubt that a small group of thoughtful, committed people can change the world. Indeed, it is the only thing that ever has.

Online Lessons

Do you have a desire to learn more about God, the Bible, or your own leadership potential? If so we have just the courses for you. These courses can be completed at your own pace.

Get Involved

Life isn’t meant to be lived alone, neither should your journey into becoming a greater Christian. Membership is NOT required. Connect with others through small groups, ministries, events, and more.

Ministries

Christian Education – For teachers and students alike.

The Christian Education Ministry of FBC is the heart of our Pastor and leadership. We believe that every person can and should grow to a mature faith. “The beginning of wisdom is this: Get wisdom. Though it cost all you have, get understanding.” Proverbs 4:7

As a ministry for lifelong learning and growth toward a mature and vital faith. We currently provide the following Christian Ed Forms.
  • Bible Study: Wed @ Noon & 7pm (Children & Youth Classes available)
    Practical biblical lessons to understand and share in everyday community.
  • Focus Classes: Sunday @10AM (Children & Youth Classes available)
    Multiple Classes Tracks From Genesis to Revelations and Christian Electives
    Includes bi-annual certificate and Graduation
  • Timothy Training: Sept-Oct Tues & Thursday
  • Discipleship 1-on-1: July-Aug (Daily Christian Growth Activiies)
  • Periodic Training: Subject to Need & Dates
With intentional learning and Christian formation, we become the people God calls us to be, and we develop gifts and strengths for encouraging and leading others to the same strong faith. The Christian Education Ministry is comprised of 11 sub-ministries that individually and collectively have a three prong focus of spirituality, service and education. Biblical teaching and learning are the essential elements of the Christian Education Ministry. Through active participation in Christian Education programs, individuals acquire the tools and skills needed to lead others to Christ and to allow them to grow spiritually in a community of believers.
We believe that this ministry is the foundation for lifelong learning and growth toward a mature and vital faith. With intentional learning and Christian formation, we become the people God calls us to be, and we develop gifts and strengths for encouraging and leading others to the same strong faith.

Our Christian Education Ministry will always be accepting new students and looking to expand the teaching team.

Youth & Chidrens’s Ministry – Kids Ages 4-18

T2 and King Kidz are ministries created for the youth, the purpose of the youth ministry is to empower youth, help them realize their gifts, and add a twist of flavor to learning Godly principles.  This ministry provides a higher level of opportunity for youth to be engaged in their faith development.  Youth take an active role in planning monthly events and activities along with their youth worker.

There are regularly scheduled times during the month that focus on social interaction where youth talk about various topics from a Biblical perspective.  There are also opportunities during the month for peer led study that is relevant to youth during “Children’s Church”.
