COMMUNITY MINISTRIES

Our desire is that everyone who attends Faith Bible Church will find a lasting community and family here among us. We offer a growing number of community-based ministries to encourage and strengthen our members as we all continue on our walk with Jesus. Scroll down for more info. We hope you will join us!

WOMEN'S FELLOWSHIP MINISTRY

The purpose of our Women’s Fellowship Ministry is to promote fellowship and unity in the Body of Christ. It is a place for women to connect spiritually and socially with others from different walks of life, experiencing different seasons of life. We do this by holding monthly breakfast meetings where we hear the Word of God, and spend time sharing our life experiences and praying one for another. We schedule special occasion luncheons to celebrate holidays such as Mothers’ Day and Thanksgiving, where the Word of God is preached, and we enjoy a good time in the Lord growing together in unity. We host a daily prayer conference call every weekday and Saturday morning, where we lift up personal and family needs, as well as the needs of our church, the world, and the corporate Body of Christ. In addition, the Women’s Fellowship Ministry assists our Pastor in planning and hosting special events such as International Sunday, where we celebrate the many cultures of our diverse church body, and Open Houses where we meet and greet new additions to our church family.  


The main goal of the Women’s Fellowship Ministry is spiritual growth – not only for our women as individuals - but also that we will be a positive and Christ-like influence in our homes, in our workplaces and in our church. We gather with the intent and purpose of growing in our relationship with Jesus Christ as we encourage and inspire one another. We have experienced this growth through the emphasis of the Word, fellowship and prayer that we have made the most important part of our ministry.

MEN'S FELLOWSHIP MINISTRY

The purpose of the Men's Fellowship at FBC is to sharpen and strength our men through God's word, fellowship and support by encouraging discipleship and mentorship. Our goal is to be the husbands, fathers, brothers and friends that God intends for us to be as we grow in our relationship with Jesus.


The last Tuesday of each month is an opportunity for the men of Faith Bible Church to come together for fellowship, encouragement, discipleship, and usually food!


Our ministry leader has a heart to see men enter into all that God has called us to as men and followers of Jesus Christ. 1 Corinthians 13:11 states “When I was a child, I used to speak as a child, think like a child, reason like a child; when I became a man, I did away with childish things.” Maturity as a man and as a Christian is vital to the health of our churches, families and of men as followers of Christ, worshippers, husbands and fathers.


It is of utmost importance that the men of God band together to support each other. Together we are best suited to follow the biblical instruction to “Be on the alert, stand firm in the faith, act like men, be strong. Let all that you do be done in love.” (1 Cor. 16:13-14) 


The FBC Men's Fellowship Ministry hosts many activities and events including: 

- Saturday Breakfast Fellowships

- Monthly Fellowships

- Work Days

- Special Events and Outings
