Ministry Update: 
The Children’s Ministry at FBC, lead by Children’s Ministry Coordinator, Sue Cooper had some fun activities and events this summer to help children grow in their knowledge of God and to put their trust in Jesus. As  school is just about ready to start up, children in the community have two exciting opportunities to be excited about: the Jr Bible Quizzing league that is starting August 9th (see more details in the announcement column) and then our annual Root Beer Float Night to help get kiddos excited about BASIC Training starting in October. 
Don’t forget Children’s Church is still going on through the summer; this is a great opportunity for children age Pre-K – 3rd grade to hear God’s word taught in a way that is meaningful to them and easy to remember. We look forward to the opportunity to see your child this summer and speak God’s word into their lives. Hope to see you soon! 
Below are a few photos of the fun that was had during VBS here at FBC! The theme of the week was that “Jesus’s Power will pull us through” and  “We are trusting Jesus” It was a great time of fellowship and worshipping God and His goodness to us.
