We Love Kids
Our children are an important part of our FBC family and we take both their safety and biblical training very seriously. Psalm 78:4 urges us to “tell the next generation about the glorious deeds of the Lord, about His power and His mighty wonders”, so we want to support our parents by helping them love and teach their children to become fully devoted followers of Jesus Christ. Through Sunday morning Children’s Church and Church 58 ministries, the yearly Vacation Bible School outreach events, and the Awana Clubs that meet here from September-May, we show that our kids are precious to our hearts and we want them to learn about the Jesus that loves them so much!

Our High School Ministry
On Sunday mornings our high school age youth attend the worship service and have a monthly outing after church on Sundays.
In Hebrews 10:24 we are challenged to “consider how we may spur one another on toward love and good deeds.” At FBC we believe this type of life transformation takes place best in the context of small, intimate community groups where we really get to know, and also allow ourselves to be known, for the purpose of accountability, growth, and support. These groups provide a place where we study the Bible, ask questions, love, and pray for one another so we can become more like the Lord Jesus in our character. Come and join us at one of our home groups that meet during the week. Look on our events page or contact us for more information and to get plugged in!
Becoming Women of Faith
As women we are very important to Jesus and He wants to use us to model a life of faith and minister His truth and His life to our families, to our church, and to the world. As women we want to help in this growth by offering relevant Bible study, personal application, and Christ-centered, caring community among our women. From our weekly Fellowship Cafe to our monthly Ladies Tuesday Night Connection and our yearly Ladies Retreat, there are a variety of opportunities throughout the year to connect and build relationship with other women. We hope you come join us as we have fun while we are becoming who God desires us to be. Contact us for more information and we will help you get connected.
Building Servant Leaders
Jesus modeled true leadership by humbly serving those around him. As men we should be learning from God's Word, praying daily and being faithfully involved in service in our local church, but our family must be our primary ministry. To support our men in this great work, we encourage them to grow into spiritual leaders in their own homes and men of Godly character in their workplace through the application of biblical truth and relational accountability. We offer different opportunities for our men to meet together throughout the year and we welcome you to come join us in becoming the men God has called us to be here at Fellowship Bible Church.
MOBILIZED TO SERVE
Because of the incredible gift of salvation we have received through the shed blood of Jesus, we have a responsibility to share that same good news of eternal life with anyone who will listen. Christ’s love compels us to go and share His love with others in our own community and to partner with those who are actively bringing the life-transforming truth of the gospel to those around the world.
We encourage and offer training to our FBC community on how to lovingly and accurately share the gospel with those they meet. We are also in the process of coordinating with some local ministries who are reaching out to people in difficulty by meeting their practical needs first, then using that to create an open door to share the truths that Jesus loves them and wants to change their hearts and lives.
At FBC we actively support these ministry partners. We encourage you to pray for them and help us give financially to their ministries around the world.
Shuji is the pastor of the Hamadera Bible Church in Osaka, Japan and he is honored to serve the Lord Jesus Christ there along with his wife, Mayumi and their children Takashi, Aimee, and Keishi.
He is a graduate of the Master’s Seminary in Los Angeles, California and he is faithfully training men, women, boys, and girls by the use of expository, verse-by-verse preaching from the Word of God.
One of his great burdens is leading a generation of men to proclaim the glories of Jesus Christ to all Japan. Many of his church family lovingly call him the “Japanese John MacArthur” because he is so passionate about sharing biblical truth.
It comes as no surprise to us that the Lord is greatly blessing Shuji’s ministry in Osaka and we are excited to be a part of his support team here in the United States. How wonderful it is that the power of God is changing the hearts and lives of the Japanese people through the ministry of Shuji and his family.

Operation Christmas Child
At Fellowship Bible Church we love participating in Operation Christmas Child every year. This ministry of Franklin Graham’s Samaritan’s Purse International Relief, provides gifts of love along with the gospel truth of Jesus Christ to children all over the world.
Every year, through the hard work of our volunteers and the generous giving of our people, we are thrilled to be able to pack and ship more than 100 gift-filled shoeboxes to children all over the world who need to know how much Jesus loves them and we pray the Lord will provide the funds for us to double that number in the years to come.
It is truly amazing how God uses these shoeboxes to display the redeeming love of Jesus and often to build devoted Christ-followers in areas that have little, or no other gospel witness.
And we believe filling a shoebox together is a wonderful way to teach our kids by our own example, the blessings of giving to others.
The Gideons International
We believe nothing is more important than seeing the Word of God transform lives and so we are excited to support the ministry of The Gideons International.
The Gideons are a body of believers dedicated to making the Word of God available to everyone and, together with the local church, reaching souls for Christ.
The Gideons International began in 1908 as an Association of Christian businessmen placing Bibles in hotel rooms but today it has evolved into an expanding mission to provide Scriptures to all people in nearly every facet of life and to share with them the goods news of God’s love.
Today, they have taken more than 2 billion Scriptures in more than 95 languages to 200 countries, territories, and possessions across the globe. Join us at FBC with your prayers and financial support, and together, let’s spread the Good News.
