Why Study the Bible?

You asked a very good question! The Bible is the only source of divine truth which also leads us to the mind of God and His will for our lives. But if that is not good enough, here are the top ten reasons to study the Bible!

#10 – To build a storehouse of knowledge of Christian faith

#8 – To discover God’s principles of marriage and family life
#7 – To build lasting moral values for your children
#6 – To find moral and spiritual guidance for your life
#5 – To develop habits of daily worship
#4 – To build hope for the future
#3 – To gain strength to face life’s crises with faith and trust in God
#2 – To discover God’s everlasting love
#1 – To meet God personally through Jesus Christ

Sunday Worship Services:

Here At FBCM we offer 2 worship services on Sunday mornings:

We have an 8:30 service which is more of a traditional service with the Choir singing more of the traditional hymns from the hymnal.  We have a wonderful pastor, Rev. Sammy Ballard that brings a powerful message each Sunday morning.  We do offer a nursery during this service if you have little ones if you are interested to coming for this service.

Between the 2 services we have a Small Group Bible Study.  The Small Group Bible Studies begin at 9:45 and there is a class for any and all ages.  We have listed the separate classes below.  If you have any questions, feel free to call the church office, or ask the volunteers that are in the hallways for directions on where to go.

We also have an 11:00 service which is more of a contemporary service with a praise and worship team.  They have the drums, the guitars, and some amazing talented musicians to sing some of the more contemporary music, such as the music that is played on K-Love.  Pastor Sammy once again delivers a wonderful message for this service as well.  During the 11:00 service we have a nursery for the infant-3 years old.  The 4 year olds through 5th grade come into the church service until they are dismissed for either Children’s Church or Kid’s Church.  Children’s church is in the nursery area on the first floor, and Kid’s Church is in The Grove, which is located on the 2nd floor.

We also have an SOS (Soul Outreach Service) currently one Sunday night a month.  This service is in the Sanctuary and starts at 6pm.  This service is led by mainly the congregation.  We have testimonies, prayer, special music, and it is a very heartwarming and precious service.  If you feel led to participate in this service, you can contact Chris Conley, our music director, he does an awesome job at making this a spectacular time for all.

Come and join us for any and all that you could come to.
