For My yoke is easy and My burden is light.”

Tuesday Morning Men’s Bible Study

Good to Great, In God’s Eyes!

good to great

Do dream of making an eternal impact in the Kingdom of God? Do you long for a spiritual breakthrough? If you’re looking to go to the next level or get a fresh infusion of faith and spiritual passion then look no further than this group study.

In this series, Chip Ingram uses Scripture, personal stories, and examples from real Christians who left an indelible mark on the world to offer clear steps to becoming great in the things that matter most. These steps are not intended to earn God’s favor or to impress other people; however, they are an opportunity to fulfill the highest and best purposes God has for your life.

Learning how to apply the practical principles in this study will jump-start your relationship with God by providing you with a practical and Biblical means to go from good to great… in God’s eyes.

Monthly Events

Saturday Evening Worship, Concerts, & Films , Saturdays at 6:00 pm!

Saturday 7:00 pm weekly Worship and fellowship. Working on Sunday mornings? No problem. There is plenty of opportunity to lift praises to God in song and testimony on Saturday nights! We are inviting you to come, share, and join in in celebrating what our AWESOME GOD is doing in our lives. The Bible tells us we are not to forsake the assembling of ourselves together, (see Heb. 10:25). Please make every opportunity to attend. Sometimes we have a concert, other times a movie, but we always are doing something to lift up the name of Jesus. Many in the community have said they cannot come on Sunday Mornings so this is your opportunity to Worship the King during the evening. We are here to serve the Lord and in doing that serve you! Remember John 3:16, For God so loved the world that He gave His only begotten Son, that whosoever believes in Him may have eternal life! Find new life in Christ at FBC!
