The following is a list of the different ministries and classes we offer at our church. At the bottom of the page is information regarding the use of the building for weddings and funerals. For our confessions of faith, click on About Us.
Study of New Testament
One of our elders, David Bliesner, is teaching through the letters of the Apostle Paul, hosted in the garage classroom, Sunday mornings at 9:30. Materials are provided.
Study of Minor Prophets
Another elder, Chris Solano, is teaching through the minor prophets in the Old Testament. The class meets in the downstairs northeast classroom Sunday mornings at 9:30. Teenagers are encouraged to attend this class as well.
Study of Kings and Chronicles
On Thursday evenings, Pastor Gabe is teaching through the books of 1 and 2 Kings, and 1 and 2 Chronicles at his home. Food is served at 6:00, study starts at 6:30, and finished by 7:30.
Daily Bible Study Podcast
Five days a week, you can catch Pastor Gabe teaching through a New and Old Testament book of the Bible on his daily podcast! On Fridays, he takes questions from listeners. Visit wwutt.podbean.com to subscribe.
On Wednesday nights during the school year, we offer the kids ministry known world-wide as AWANA (Approved Workmen Are Not Ashamed). It starts at 6:00 and wraps up shortly before 8:00, for kindergarten through high school. (Childcare is available for pre-K and under as long as the parents remain on the premises.)
Every Sunday morning from 9:30 to 10:15, we have Sunday school available for all ages, babies on up through adults. There are great Bible lessons and activities for your kids to take part in!
Our church supports a strong network of homeschoolers that meet once a week at our building. For more information about how to connect with our homeschool families, visit with Beki Hughes or Adrea Solano.
We have another homeschool co-op that meets at our church on Fridays, or meets off-campus at a museum or a zoo for a homeschool outing. For more info, visit with Beki Hughes or Leslie Korman.
On Wednesday nights, we have a Bible study for teens through AWANA's Journey curriculum. It starts at 6:30 and finishes up at 7:45, meeting in the big classroom in the main hall downstairs.
A ministry of AWANA, Trek is a Bible study program that is taught specifically to middle schoolers. They meet at the same time as the rest of our AWANA kids, starting at 6:00 on Wednesday nights.
Bible Lunch Tuesday
Because the high school is right next door to the church, every Tuesday during the school year, at 11:25 and at 12:50, we welcome the students to join us for lunch. We feed them good food and a devotional from the Word of God. A few other churches in our community partner in this ministry, but it is primarily a ministry of FSBC.
As all ages are welcome in Chris Solano's class, we encourage our middle and high school students to attend this class as well. It's at 9:30 Sunday mornings in the northeast classroom downstairs (where Trek is also held).
We have a small food pantry at FSBC. Feel free to contribute non-perishable food items. We also have a freezer to store frozen goods. This ministry helps to care for those struggling to make ends meet in our church and community.
Mothers of Pre-Schoolers is a well-known ministry reaching out to community moms. Our MOPS group meets during the school year on the first and third Wednesdays of each month beginning at 9:00 downstairs in the fellowship hall.
We often get inquiries about using the building for other events, weddings and funerals among the most common. Requests will be determined on a case-by-case basis, taking into consideration factors such as other scheduled engagements and availability of staff. First priority is given to requests made by members of our church.
WEDDINGS will be conducted for our members only. You must be a member of our church, or, in special circumstances, have been recommended by another closely associated pastor, to use our building and/or one of our ordained ministers for a wedding. The building is available free of charge (an honorarium of $150 should still be given to the minister officiating, and $50 to the person running sound). We do ask that all requests be made at least 60 days prior to the event.
FUNERALS receive priority care, and we work closely with the funeral homes in town to ensure a loving service, both at the church and the graveside. It is encouraged that you visit with the funeral home about where you would like the funeral to be held. If you request FSBC, they will get in contact with us. If the funeral is held at the funeral home, our pastor is still able to officiate the service.
