FBC Small Groups | Sign Up Today!
This September we are launching new small groups to meet in homes on Sundays. These groups are for all adults who attend FBC including newcomers. Groups will start meeting on Sept. 25 either at 3:00 PM or 6:00 PM. They will meet 11 times, every
other week but only once a month in Nov. and Dec. The dates are Sept. 25, Oct. 9 & 23, Nov. 6, Dec. 4, Jan. 15 & 29, Feb. 12 & 26, Mar. 12 & 26. Grab a bookmark at the signup table for the schedule. Parents will need to make their own arrangements for child-care. You may want to pick a group that is close to your home. Pay attention to the meeting time. Group size is limited so sign up soon!
Small groups are designed to meet for about 1 hour 15 minutes starting with a time of fellowship and prayer. Group this year will read and discuss the book Transforming Grace by Jerry Bridges. Books are available in the large foyer at a subsidized price of $10. We encourage each person to have their own copy. You can pay using the
envelopes provided or pay online by scanning the code at the book table.
We would like to see as many people as possible will be a part of one of these home groups! We trust they will again be a wonderful time of fellowship and spiritual
nourishment. If you are newer to the church and would like help finding a good group please contact the office.
Women’s Fall Retreat | October 14, 6pm—October 15, 6pm
“Take My Hand: Walking Together in Christ” is the theme for our fall ladies retreat. We have a fun weekend at Gull Lake Ministries planned, with our speaker Marlene Lawson and a talent show! Cost is $150 ($20 deposit is due at sign up). Space is limited, so reserve your spot at the Welcome Center today!
