Sr. Adult and Children's Ministry

Our PrimeTime Senior Adult Ministry meets September - May on a regular Monday Morning schedule for music, bible study and fellowship. The XYZ Choir visits local facilities, such as Morning Point Assisted Living to share their love of music and lead group singin' sessions.

The Senior Adults are one of the most active groups in our church. All adults who are 55 or older are invited to be a part of this special ministry. Weekly meetings are held on Monday mornings, in the Lower Auditorium (beneath the sanctuary). In addition to our Monday schedule, the Primetime Council plans activities that center in Ministry and Fellowship. During the Summer months trips and outings are planned and are open to the Community.

Our children and young families are one of our greatest assets. FBC, through its Preschool and Children’s Committees work diligently to make sure that we provide a safe, Christian learning environment. Learning begins at a very early age and we encourage our leaders in classrooms to plan their age appropriate Bible Study programs so that the children are challenged to learn.

Inter-generational activities are planned for our children to help them understand the Mission Statement of our Church. They are actively involved in projects at Clinton Towers, Christmas and Thanksgiving basket preparation and “shoeboxes” for distribution overseas. During the School year on Wednesdays - KFC (Kids For Christ) meets for music and bible activities. Preschool - Grade 6 are welcome to join us for music, bible activities, and FUN! on Wednesdays and for Sunday School - Sundays at 9:30am.
