At FBC we believe Every Member is a Minister! It takes all of us serving together to Make Disciples Who Love God Love People and Follow Jesus.
We want to help you find a place to Serve and make a difference in the world. Every opportunity is different and we want you to serve in the area where you feel most gifted or interested. Wherever that is you can always expect there to be a process in place to equip and train you, as well as a designated leader who can answer all of your questions and encourage you along the way.
SERVE IN Opportunities are things we do right here in our church. SERVE OUT are the opportunities to make a difference outside of our church and may include ministry partners and mission organizations we work with and trust. Check out the opportunities below and find your place to SERVE!
