Theme: Filtered Theme Description: Before you share that picture of you and your friends you have to find the perfect filter. The filter changes the feel of the picture. It changes how people will see you and whoever else is in the photo. We also see life through filters. When we look at our friends (and enemies), our parents, our math teacher, and even ourselves we see it all through a filter. Join us as we discover together that God has given us a filter in order that we can best see others and ourselves.

Theme Verse: Psalm 119:105 Your word is a lamp to my feet and a light to my path.

Starting Point for Kids

September 3rd - September 24th, 2017

Starting Point for Kids, formerly advertised as I’m A Christian Now, is an in depth and comprehensive study for helping children (Grades 1-6) understand the decision they have made and what it means to live a Christian life. This class is designed for children who have made recent professions of Faith – this includes those who have not yet been baptized and those who have.

Topics covered include: Baptism, The Lord’s Supper, Being a church member, Following God through one’s actions and Developing a quiet time.

We have found that children feel less pressured and are more open to discussion in a class setting. Much like Starting Point is the membership class for adults, Starting Point for Kids is catered to help children understand what it means to follow Christ and be a part of the Body of Christ.

This class will meet during the Sunday School hour (9:45 am) during September. If you need to miss a Sunday, you can make it up with Leah Frances at another time.

Starting Point for Adults & Youth

November 19th, 2017

Whether you have recently become a member of FBC, are interested in joining, or would just like to know more about who we are as a church, then Starting Point is for you. Pastor Chip will share a few key things about the church; who God is and what it means to follow Him; what we believe as a church; and what we expect from you as a church member as we Gather, Grow, Give, Go. At the conclusion, there will be an opportunity to become a member of the church. Our next quarterly Starting Point class is scheduled for Sunday, November 19 at 12:30 pm in Children's Building Room 215.
