As a church it is easy for us to be consumed with what is going on inside our four walls rather than on what goes on on the outside, nearby and beyond. But in Jesus command to "go" we come to the realization that it is not all about us, it is all about them.
"But you will receive power when the Holy Spirit comes on you; and you will be my witnesses in Jerusalem, and in all Judea and Samaria, and to the ends of the earth.”
As a church we are called to reach outside the church into our community, region, continent, and world. As Jesus illustrated in Acts 1:8, the mission of the church is unique, purposeful, and urgent. For today's church, Jesus' words are a "wake-up call" to be engaged in his mission on earth.
We love seeing what our missionaries are doing throughout the year and as a church we want to go beyond just being their financial supporters. As a church we are intentional about knowing the needs our missionaries have so that we can be active in praying for them and also take on special projects to help what they do overseas.

The Food Pantry at FBC exists to meet the physical and spiritual needs of our local community. The food pantry is run by members of the church and is open the third Thursday of every month from 10AM-12PM.
