USE YOUR GIFTS AT FBC!
The elders and staff are eager to connect you with ministries in the church in which you can use the gifts God has entrusted to you. Prayerfully consider what interests you have and please share them (along with any questions) with us at email@example.com or by calling the church office. Doing this does not automatically sign you up for service, but it will allow us to connect you with ministry leaders to learn more about ways you can serve!
