  • FBC Ladies' Mingle

    God hasn't designed us to walk through this life alone! There's just something special about ladies coming together and encouraging each other to live out God's purpose for their lives in whatever season they're walking through. That's why a group of our women plan and organize a beautiful gathering once a quarter to bring ladies together for fellowship, fun, encouragement, and inspiration. It's called the Ladies Mingle, and you're invited to join the next one! 


    The Spring Mingle is happening on Tuesday, June 4th, from 6-8 pm! It will take place at the Concord Martins location in the private party room upstairs. (3800 Mishawaka Road E. in Elkhart) 


    Join us for an evening to mingle as we learn how to dish up a delightful outdoor party menu! A local chef and table stylist will share their hosting tips with us! There is limited space; the venue holds 75. Doors will open at 5:30. Food and drink are available for purchase at the Sidedoor Deli below. Program begins at 6:00 pm, and 16 year olds and older are welcome!

  • Ladies Bible Study: Ezekiel Part 2

    Beginning April 10th we will be studying Ezekiel Part 2 -  "The watchman speaks hope from the Lord. God will seek the lost, bring back the scattered, bind up the broken and strengthen the sick.
