  • Take Courage - A Study in Haggai - Ladies Bible Study

    Do you ever feel like the happy ending of your story is a million miles away?
    Then you know how the Jewish people felt when they returned to their wrecked land after exile and began rebuilding the temple. They were distracted, discouraged, and ready to throw in the towel. But the prophet Haggai reminded them they could find courage in the God who had never left them.
    Sometimes the landscapes of our lives feel wrecked, with our hope and purpose in shambles. We too get distracted and discouraged. However, God’s presence and promises give us courage to press on and trust Him with our story.


    Through this Bible study, you will:

    • Defeat discouragement through God’s presence, people, and Word.
    • See beyond your current circumstances to a future hope.
    • Learn to trust God more than your feelings.
    When: Tuesday mornings at 9-11 a.m. or evenings at 6:30 p.m. - beginning October 6th (7 week study)
    Where: FBC campus
    Cost Before September 20th: $15
    Cost After September 20th: $20

  • The Mighty 300

    • This is for the Men of FBC. As men of FBC we choose to band together, back-to-back, shoulder-to-shoulder, digging in and standing firm - fighting this war together! 

    • This is Biblically based. Everything we do as warriors for Christ is based upon our instructions for battle found in God’s Word!

    • Our Passion. Our passion is to see men grow in their walk with Christ, strengthening in the faith, submitting to God and resisting the devil!

    • This is A Band of Brothers. No one is in this alone - no one is by himself in this war. Together we make an impenetrable force for Christ and the gates of Hell will not prevail! Together we are striving to be men of God, men of purity, men of integrity, men who understand the times we are living in and are CHOOSING to submit ourselves to God, stand firm in the faith and conviction of the Scriptures, and through Christ fight Satan and all his host of Hell.

  • Fight Club

    Calling all men! Fight Club is a 10-week journey where men are required to complete weekly challenges within the context of community and accountability. It's all geared toward helping men to step into their God-given calling to lead and to pursue Christ with their lives. 


    The theme verse for Fight Club says it well: 

    "After I looked things over, I stood up and said to the nobles, the officials and the rest of the people, 'Don't be afraid of them. Remember the Lord, who is great and awesome, and fight for your borthers, your sons, your daughters, your wives and your homes.'" - Nehemiah 4:14
