Looking Ahead

I am very thankful for all that God did through FBCG this past year. From the new members to the salvations and many other opportunities to live out our mission and vision, we saw God do what only He could do!

My prayer is that this year will be filled with more of those “only God” moments. We’ve already seen the year begin with new members and others taking next steps here at FBCG!

Though He doesn’t need us, God gives us the opportunity to be a part of making a difference that will outlast our lives. As we continue through 2024, we will commit wholeheartedly to accomplishing our purpose of making, maturing, and multiplying disciples as we gather to worship, grow through community, and go in serving others and sharing Jesus.

You’ll keep hearing us talk about taking next steps because our goal is to engage as many people as possible in this exciting purpose. We will do it all for the glory of God!

2023 was a great year!

We learned Bible stories, played games, and made crafts that grew our knowledge of God’s love for us through Jesus. We had an awesome VBS with a great turnout that lead to salvations.

Our attendance is growing as new families have joined us. Wednesday night missions classes have had a strong attendance and we learned all about different missionary work across the world.

I am excited as we begin 2024 and see His plans for us this year. As our GLOW Kids numbers increase during the church hour, we will be splitting up during the bible story time for a better understanding of His word according to age group.

Plans have already begun on this year’s Easter fun and VBS. I can’t wait to watch more children accept Jesus as their Lord and Savior and be baptized. It’s going to be a great year.

We spent 2023 building a solid foundation for our overall approach to student ministry. Our focus was to develop spiritual unity and strength among our leadership team and a solid and consistent approach to discipleship for our students. We studied through the entire book of John, had an extended series on prayer, and got a good start on the book of Genesis.

We had some wonderful events to help strengthen the unity and spiritual foundation of our students, such as Camp Monsoon, Rock The Universe, and FUGE Camp.

Our students helped lead VBS and each Sunday they work together to serve through our GLOW Kids ministry.

In addition, we launched our new name: Radiate Students

Thank you for all you do to support our student ministry!
