Building & Grounds
One way to serve the Lord is to work either inside the building doing cleaning, or outside the building maintaining the lawn.
We offer several things for our children including Sunday School classes, Vacation Bible School, King's Kids, and various other activities.
Our music is evangelistic and alive without compromising with the current trends of worldly music. We desire to uplift our Lord with Biblically sound music that is pleasing to Him.
- The FBC adult choir sings for Sunday morning and evening services
There are opportunities to join vocal groups for men, ladies, quartets, duets and soloists as well as opportunities for teens
We have Special Day cantatas, dramas i.e. God and Country Sundays, Easter, and Christmas
Food & Hospitality
With all the different fellowships and activities, a great way to serve the Lord is to be "behind the lines" serving and helping prepare meals for people.
Ladies In Fellowship Together is a monthly meeting of ladies for the purpose of fellowship, training, serving, and edifying. The ladies meet the 2nd Tuesday evening of each month, and although the purpose remains the same, each month is different and enjoyable.
A unique way to minister to missionaries and their families is through Missions Care. The people of FBC try to be a blessing to the missionaries through the year through encouragement, and when they are reporting to our church, we reach out to them with thoughtful gifts.
Nursing Home & Hospital
Since the residents of the convalescent homes cannot attend Sunday church services, we bring church to them. Every Sunday afternoon we sing, we pray, and we preach to folks at the hospital and at Liberty Village. It is our privilege and honor to minister to people in need.
Each Wednesday at 10 AM the ladies of FBC meet for a few hours to quilt. Once the quilts are finished, they are sent to help missionaries.
Bible study is a vital part of our church. Each class starts on Sunday morning at 9:00 A.M. for all ages. A free, clean and professionally staffed nursery is available for infants and toddlers. (A check-in system is provided for each parent--please, no sick infants.) Classes currently being taught with the Bible as our textbook are the following:
- 2-3 yr. olds
- 4-5 yr. olds
- 1st & 2nd grade
- 3rd & 4th grade
- 5th & 6th grade
- Abundant Life (General Class)
- Crossroads (Young Adults)
- Harvesters (Senior Saints)
- Homebuilders (Couples)
This is a ministry that includes junior high and high school teens. We meet every Sunday morning at 9:00 AM.
- Teens are challenged through the Bible in class and encouraged to have a daily time with God in Bible reading and prayer time
- Teens gather every Saturday at 10:00 a.m. for soul winning opportunities
- Teens are also provided with the opportunity to participate in sports, choir, VBS, and various other ministries
Weekly, monthly and yearly activities include the following: Youth Conference, Summer camp, singspirations, and bonfires.
Our goal is to help every single teenager in our youth group experience their full potential as a Christian young person. It is vitally important to have a place to call home and to have a ministry that will support and encourage your teens. We look forward to seeing you soon!
