Ministries

World Changers is a service mission which seeks to provide dynamic, week long mission experiences for Christian youth and adults. World Changers trips are opportunities to meet the physical and spiritual needs of others while learning practical skills that teach servant-hood and personal missions commitment. For more information, see the World Changers main site.

Walking on Water is the student ministries aspect of FBC. It exists to reach students with the truth of the Bible, teach students what it means to be a follower of Christ and send students out to be on mission for God! The youth ministry of FBC is open to any student, in 6th grade through 12th grade. Sunday Morning Bible Study is a key time together as we study the Bible in 3 different age graded classes at 9:45am. Sunday evenings at 5pm is discipleship time where students get to choose the class they are involved in. On Wednesdays, WOW stands for “Worship on Wednesdays”, a time of games, worship and fun in the Gym. Fellowships and other activities are planned regularly throughout the year. During the summer we have ‘open gym nights’, mission trips and camp!

Women’s Ministry is a part of FBC that puts on several women’s events throughout the year. We have an annual women’s conference in the fall which is held in the church Fellowship Hall. The conference typically includes dinner on Friday and breakfast and lunch on Saturday, interspersed with times of praise, worship and activities promoting personal growth.
