KIDS CAMP AND YOUTH CAMP

Crossings Summer Camp is an amazing Christian camp with fun activities and concerts, life transforming messages, and a great place for kids and youth groups to grow closer together in their pursuit of Jesus. The FBC Kids group will be going to camp starting Wednesday, July 19th and return on Saturday, July 22nd. Kids camp signups are available for kids 3rd grade through current 6th graders. The Youth group will be going to camp starting Sunday, June 18th and return on Friday, June 23rd. Youth camp signups are available for anyone going into 6th grade in Fall 2017 through seniors in high school.
 
The regular cost of camp is $300; FBC Kids and Youth can go for $150! Payment is due in three separate payments of $50 each. Please see the individual event pages for registration and further payment information.

30 DAYS OF PRAYER

30 Days of Prayer will be a focused stepping stone for us to continue in our Christian growth, and seek out the will of God for us as individuals and for the Church. It will be a time for us to seek and receive the miracles God has in mind for us and our community.

VOLUNTEERS NEEDED

There are several little odd jobs that need to be taken care of around our church building:
 
Conference room ceiling needs to be repaired.
