The FBG church family strives to glorify God by being disciples of Jesus Christ who are making disciples. As disciples, we love God and we love people. Our great hope and ambition is that people will believe in Jesus Christ as Lord and Savior and so join with us in following Jesus Christ. We believe there is no more significant life than to love God, love people and help others do
The heart of our 55+ ministry is best described by Psalm 71:17-18 (NASB95), “O God, You have taught me from my youth, And I still declare Your wondrous deeds. And even when I am old and gray, O God, do not forsake me, Until I declare Your strength to this generation, Your power to all who are to come.” Our hope is that every generation in our church family is seeking to help the next generation know and follow the Lord. The FBG 55+ ministry is striving to love God, love people and help the next generation do the same.
Whatever your gifting, we have a place for you to join with us, serve and invest in the lives of other adults 55+ and the next generation.
Sunday Mornings for adults 55+
Age-based Life Groups, small groups that study the Bible and encourage one another to love God, love people and help others do the same, are available every Sunday at 8:15, 9:30 and 11:00 a.m. These Life Groups allow you to get to know people, share stories and laughs, and share one another’s burdens and joys. Adults 55+ often attend one of the two morning worship services at 9:30 or 11:00 a.m.
Missions and Volunteering
Opportunities are also available to invest in people’s lives and God’s kingdom in the church, the community and around the world. The church has multiple ministry opportunities for 55+ participation and more are added as needs arise. A definite, current priority includes ministry to the sick, homebound, bereaved and others with special needs.
Other 55+ activities and events include mission trips, Voices in Praise choir (75+ members), monthly game night, luncheons, afternoons at the movies, day trips and overnight trips.
Annual events include the Fall Banquet, Merry Christmas With Love, Spring Sing, Missions Banquet and the deacon-sponsored Naomi Banquet for Widows and Widowers.
