Wednesday Night Prayer Meeting

PRAYING THROUGH THE PSALMS

Every Wednesday night at 6:15 in the Chapel, we gather to pray over different prayer requests from our church family, sing hymns, and delve into a deeper study of God’s Word. We are currently working our way through the Psalms, one by one, as we pray each week. Everyone is welcome to join!

First Steps Class

We ask that all prospective members take part in a special class that will help you understand all that it means to be a member of FBS. First Steps is a one hour, one-session study that explains the blessings, responsibilities, and opportunities that come with church membership. Whether you’ve been a member of a Baptist church all your life or you have just received Christ as your Lord and Savior, you will be richly blessed by being a part of this fun class.

 

Divorce Care

Has the trauma of divorce and separation shattered your life and your dreams? Do you wonder if you will ever be able to pick up the pieces and learn to trust again? Have you come to terms with your pain and found peace and forgiveness? Or have you run from the pain of your divorce?

We have a great interest in you. It would be our privilege and blessing to get to know you and help you get back on your feet and get back into enjoying life. We know that God loves you and has a plan for you.

Financial Peace

In Financial Peace University, you will meet with your class each week to watch a video lesson and participate in discussion groups that will change how you think about money. Each of the 9 lessons deals with a different topic. Dave Ramsey explains how money really works in a simple, easy-to-understand style. He teaches about how to save money, live on a budget, communicate about money, eliminate debt, find bargains, and experience the joy of giving. You’ll actually have fun as you learn!

The goal of FPU is not just information – we’re looking for transformation! Financial management is only 20% knowledge and 80% behavior. FPU will help break the bad habits that rob people of true financial success. This is a life-changing program that teaches you how to make the right decisions with your money. You will be empowered with the practical skills and confidence needed to achieve your financial goals and experience true financial peace.
