Sunday Worship at FBC
Loving God, Loving People
Sunday Worship at FBC is lively, yet reverent expression of the Christian faith. We sing, we read scripture, we hear the Word preached, and we practice communion together on a weekly basis. FBC has a thriving children's ministry time on Sunday mornings and we also periodically offer Sunday morning Ignite classes for adults.
As our mission statement says, we gather together "to be a people who embody and proclaim the life-giving fullness of the gospel of Jesus Christ." Central to our Sunday time of worship is developing our relationship with God and expressing devotion to Him for who He is and what He has done. Jesus calls us to ‘love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your mind.’ He calls this the first and greatest commandment [Matthew 22:37].
Kingdom In, Kingdom Out
Making disciples that make disciples
As a church we build each other up in faith so that we might bring the gospel of Jesus Christ to the world around us. The way we do this is through relationship with God, and with each other. Sunday morning worship is a part of how we do this, but we also "do life together" through home community groups, prayer times, and our Ignite series, which focuses on the intersection of faith and culture. The vision of gospel change is an important part of life at FBC.
Globally, the FBC family prayerfully and financially support a number of missionaries around the world; locally we host a food bank and The Landing Youth and Tutoring Center. In addition, members of the FBC family are encouraged to live a life of gospel mission in our community; this currently includes (but is not limited to) being active in foster care, local business ownership and development, working with the homeless, and helping local families in need. As Jesus reminds us, as we serve those around us, we serve Him. “For I was hungry and you gave me something to eat, I was thirsty and you gave me something to drink, I was a stranger and you invited me in, I needed clothes and you clothed me, I was sick and you looked after me, I was in prison and you came to visit me.” [Matthew 24: 35 - 36]
