  We are so grateful you are joining us for worship, and our prayer is that you would have a fresh encounter with Jesus Christ. Throughout our service, we will have times of prayer, singing, preaching and an opportunity to respond to the gospel message. At our church, we invite you to be yourself. We are imperfect people that have found hope in a perfect God, and we want to shine the spotlight on Him.   Be sure and a grab a free Bible from the table in our connection center.

 Host homes for community groups It's exciting to see the growth of our church, but one problem we are facing is that we don't have enough community groups/Sunday School classes for the number of people at our church!  We believe that being involved in community through groups is vital to each believers’ spiritual health. No one is meant to live the Christian life alone, so we put an emphasis on everyone that calls FBC home being involved in a group to study and apply the Word, serve and live out the 59 “one another” commands of scripture.  This is where we need your help.  Would you be willing to host a community group in your home?

FAQ's  When would the group meet? Whichever day and night of the week works best for you.    Would I have to lead the group?  No.  As a host you would just be providing a meeting place for the group.  What's required of me? You would open your home to allow a group of 8-15 people a place to gather, so that they can discuss and apply the sermon weekly.  We ask that you pray for the group. Do I have to provide snacks or anything? No.You don't have to provide snacks. If you decided you wanted to provide snacks or group members wanted to bring something to share that's fine, but it's not required.  How long do I have to commit to hosting a group? We would ask host homes to make a minimum of a 3 month commitment to hosting the group. If I do want to host a community group, what do I do?  Fill out a connection card with your desire to host a group or email shea@fbctown.com.
