So do not fear, for I am with you; do not be dismayed, for I am your God. I will strengthen you and help you; I will uphold you with My righteous right hand.

Isaiah 41:10

YOUTH MISSION TRIP: August 20 - 24, 2017

Our FBC Youth Ministry traveled to The Fold Family Ministries in Vermont this summer. The Fold ministers to troubled teens and gives them a safe community where they can grow and learn. To learn more about the Fold, please click here! The youth did a lot of physical labor on this trip; they cleaned up the grounds and fixed things - our church family prayed that God would sustain and watch over them and He did!! They were a blessing to all they come in contact with and they glorified our loving Father!

SAM/YOUTH THANKSGIVING DINNER THANK YOU

A special thanks to our youth and their families, and our ministry coordinators for preparing a wonderful Thanksgiving dinner for our seniors.


YOUTH MISSION TRIP: August 20 - 24, 2017

Six members of our Youth Ministry went to Boston and assisted with different ministries and learned more about how God works in the city! We partnered with a missions agency called the Center for Student Missions (CSM), which specializes in connecting church youth ministries with organizations that are already established and doing effective ministry in their city. One of our missionaries, Courtney Gingras, works for CSM in Boston and she helped us on this trip! Some of the ministries we worked with included a homeless shelter and an after-school program for inner city children.
