NEW MINISTRY: ADOPT A COLLEGE STUDENT
This fall we are starting a program where we will pair college students with FBBC families. This is a great opportunity for our church families to love and disciple college-aged students. It will also give our students a greater sense of belonging to our church - through simple interactions such as Sunday lunches, sending them text messages, or occasionally offering your home as a quiet place to study or do laundry. This is a commitment for the whole school year – August to May (Although, we are fairly confident that you’ll want to continue the relationship long after the school year ends). We will do regular follow-up with both families and students to check in and make sure everything is going great. Please contact Shelley Crooks with any questions or to sign up to participate in this ministry: email@example.com.
Are you a college student looking to connect with our church family? If so, we have a great opportunity for you. This fall we are starting a program where we will pair college students with F.B.B.C. families. We have several church families who are looking to connect with you and support you during your college years. What is required of you? Only the willingness to spend some time with your adoptive family through simple interactions such as Sunday lunches, text messages, or perhaps running errands all together some evening. If you would like more information on how you can get connected with this ministry, contact Shelley Crooks (firstname.lastname@example.org) or to be paired with a family, find the online form under the ‘COLLEGE’ tab.

WOMEN’S BIBLE STUDY
The Tuesday Night Women's Bible study group will be starting a new inductive Bible study on September 3, 2019. We would love to have other women join us on the nine-week journey. We will be studying the first 12 chapters of Acts using Precept Ministries' materials. Each participant can choose between a Precept Upon Precept workbook (more in-depth study that will require more "homework" time each day) or an In/Out workbook (not quite as in-depth study requiring a little less "homework" time each day).
Study Title: Acts, Part 1--Jesus' Witnesses Empowered by His Spirit
Date/Time: Tuesday Evenings, 6:30 - 8:30
Approximate Cost of Workbook: $21 or less
Please contact Beth Arnold for more information or to sign-up for the class by
