MOMS FOR LIFE KICK-OFF EVENT

Tuesday, August 21 from 9:30-11:30 (come & go) at Bartlett Park
Join us as we celebrate a new year of being Moms for Life! We are a group of moms with children of all ages. Motherhood is hard! We strive to be the best mothers we can by looking to God’s word and studying the life of Jesus to grow in our faith and strengthen our relationships. 

Our Kick-Off is a great chance for interested mothers to meet our leadership, fellow members, and give their kids an opportunity to make friends and wear themselves out for nap time! Plus it's fun for returning members to get back together and enjoy snacks, coffee, and conversation. See you there!


GOOD NEWS CLUB is an action-packed and fun-filled Bible club held once a week right after school on Tuesdays at Skaith Elementary School. The club is conducted by a team of trained Christian adult and teen workers from FBBC who care about the spiritual needs of children. Each club session features scripture memory, a Bible lesson, songs, missions, Wonder Time (discipleship teaching), prayer time, small group learning activities, games, and a snack. In order to continue this ministry, we need more adult volunteers.  Volunteers must attend a mandatory training session conducted by Child Evangelism Fellowship. If you are interested in serving in this growing ministry, please contact Sara Smith, Chris Ellis, or contact the church office to sign up for a training date.  There will be a table in the foyer next week, with more information. 

Upcoming mandatory training dates are: 

September 8, Shawnee, KS

September 22, KC, MO

September 29, St. Joseph, MO

October 13, KC, KS
