Starting Point for Adults & Youth

Whether you have recently become a member of FBC, are interested in joining, or would just like to know more about who we are as a church, then Starting Point is for you. Pastor Chip will share a few key things about the church; who God is and what it means to follow Him; what we believe as a church; and what we expect from you as a church member as we Gather, Grow, Give, Go. At the conclusion, there will be an opportunity to become a member of the church. Our next quarterly Starting Point class is scheduled for Sunday, November 19 at 5:30 pm in Children's Building Room 215.
