Christian Heirs meets every Sunday morning to study a variety of topics that help us connect more with God's word in a relevant way.
Covenant Fellowship is a multi-generational adult class that meets weekly to primarily study books of the Bible - reading and discussing what the scripture means and how it relates to us and our lives. However, occasionally they will take on topical studies as well!
What do you think about when you hear the word, "IMMERSE"? Webster’s dictionary defines IMMERSE, “to plunge into.” Pastor Chris Radcliffe, along with a team of teachers, will launch us into a variety of topics (think marriage, parenting, spiritual healing, etc.), as we plunge into God’s word, experiencing practical and Biblical teaching that will impact our everyday lives.
The Two-Sum class uses David C. Cook curriculum. Currently the class is studying, "Acts of Worship: Old and New Testament".
The ministries of FBC don't just happen on their own... it takes a great deal of people who love Jesus, love the church, and love people; each serving the church in a number of ways. The Scriptures sometimes refer to the Church as being the hands and feet of Christ, and 1 Corinthians 12:1-31 emphasizes the importance of diversity in giftings. God has gifted every follower of Jesus with unique gifts in order to use them for the glory of God and the good of the Kingdom Church.
As followers of Jesus Christ, we are identified as servants (Matt. 20:25-28), priests (1 Pet. 2:4-9), and friends (John 15:14-15). Each of these identifiers is wrapped around the core voluntary and grateful response to God. This impacts how we serve the church.
Serving the church not only impacts those whom we serve, but we can be greatly impacted as well. We can be stretched in our own abilities and understandings, which allows us to grow spiritually & emotionally, and it's also a great opportunity to meet and connect with other people.
If you are interested in serving at FBC, please fill out and submit the form below and the appropriate ministry leader will make contact with you soon. Here is a list of ways you can serve at FBC:
Little Sneakers (Kids 0-5yrs):
Little Sneakers are little bundles of joy, and we need teachers and helpers to help support the growing needs of young families in our church. We are looking for loving people who are willing to serve these families in a way that provides a safe and friendly environment that helps our kids to grow in and love Jesus. If you are interested in serving, you will be required to pass a background check, safety training, and a brief interview process prior to beginning your service.
4th Street Kidz (Kindergarten - 5th Grade):
Our 4th Street Kidz have a ton of energy and desire to learn. We have two environments for our 4th Street Kidz and we need support in both areas. For our Small Group environment, we need teachers and helpers that will engage the children in Bible lessons, games, and other activities that will help them exercise their creative skills, but also point them to Jesus. Our Large Group environment uses drama, music, games and more to drive home Biblical lessons each week, so we need talented people who are willing to sometimes look silly for the glory of God, and for the benefit of seeing the Kidz come alive for Jesus. If you are interested in serving, you will be required to pass a background check, safety training, and a brief interview process prior to beginning your service.
First Impressions Team:
The Bible actually says quite a bit about hospitality. Jesus taught the second greatest command is to “love your neighbor as yourself” (Mark 12:31 NIV). In Romans, Paul wrote, “Love must be sincere... Be joyful in hope, patient in affliction, faithful in prayer. Share with God’s people who are in need. Practice hospitality” (12:9-13 NIV). That word, hospitality, in the original Greek literally means, “lover of strangers.” If you're a joyful person that loves people, we need people like you who will serve in giving everyone a warm welcome.
Intercessory Prayer Team:
Everything that we do as a church following God's will must be covered in prayer and intercession. "For our struggle is not against flesh and blood, but against the rulers, against the authorities, against the powers of this dark world and against the spiritual forces of evil in the heavenly realms" (Ephesians 6:12 NIV). This ministry isn't for those who'd like to be on the "prayer chain," but for those who are willing to do battle against the enemy of God through deep intercession.

Do you play an instrument or love to sing? A passion for leading worship?

The Out to Lunch Bunch Hiking Club meets every Wednesday & Saturday morning across from FBC at the east end of the Davison Library parking lot – we leave promptly at 8:45 am. We carpool to the trail head, hike and then make a stop for lunch – returning to the church around 1 pm. The hikes are approximately 5 miles and vary in difficulty. Please wear appropriate footwear and clothing. You are encouraged to bring your own water and a small snack (apple, snack bar, trail mix). A $1 donation is collected per hike for a college scholarship fund. Hikes are open to everyone, but please be attentive when deciding on the level of difficulty of a hike for you – know that ice and snow will always add an additional level to the hike. We welcome you to join us for conversation, exercise and enjoying God’s splendid nature.

"We exist to create environments that IGNITE passion in people to follow Jesus." This is the first of four statements outlining the vision God has given FBC. Ignite Communities serve as a catalyst to help us fulfill this aspect of our vision.
What is an Ignite Community? IC's are not a meeting in which you attend; rather they are a community to which you belong. In the IC environment, you will experience what it looks like to follow Jesus in the everydayness of life. Each Ignite Community can expect weekly Family Gatherings in host homes and monthly Missional Engagement opportunities where we demonstrate the Gospel through service.
