Join us as we study the fast paced Gospel of Mark this fall. We will offer this study both in the morning and in the evening so that you may attend at your convenience. Mark introduces us to Jesus, the Son of God Incarnate, who came into the world to serve people in need. Come and learn from our Lord what it means to have a servant's heart.

Camino de Luz

Camino de Luz is a ministry to women of all ages as well as their children, their families, and their friends. Those involved with Camino de Luz meet the call of Jesus in Matthew 5:14 to be the "Light of the World" by presenting the Gospel in a comprehensive manner, reconciling men and women in their spiritual relationships with Christ, and seeking to improve their lives through fellowship, Bible study, discipleship, prayer, worship, training, and pastoral care.

Participants receive a free lunch at meetings and have access to the Clothes Closet ministry. Meetings are the first and third Monday of each month from 10:00 a.m. to 1:00 p.m. in room F101 at FBC, and every second Wednesday at 5:00 p.m. in room F104. There is also Bible study for Spanish speakers every first and third Wednesday from 11:00 a.m. to 12:00 p.m. in room F106.

MOPS International Mission Statement MOPS International encourages and equips moms of young children to realize their potential as mothers, women, and leaders, in relationship with Jesus and in partnership with the local Church. What is MOPS? Call us biased, but we think MOPS is a great place to be! Together, we commit to helping moms grow in confidence, in relationships as mothers, wives, and friends, and most importantly in her relationship with Christ. Join us to laugh, cry, and embrace the journey of motherhood together! We are moms, and we believe that better moms make a better world. Free Indeed What do you long for? What is the thing that your heart craves? Is it possible that your deepest desire is to be free? Free from worry. Free from feeling stuck. Free from hustling to be loved. Free from a heaviness you can't put your finger on. Free from thinking you should be someone other that exactly who you are. At the core, maybe what we are all longing for is the Free Indeed. Choosing freedom is a deeply spiritual act, one that our souls long for. That is why this year, we choose wild, unexpected freedom; the kind that brings more laughter and less worry, more contentment and less hustle. Freedom that is so contagious, the people around us are compelled toward their own liberation.

Your total prorated amount must be paid in full. Your international fee (unless paid elsewhere) will need to be paid. This fee cannot be prorated. See Sarah Byrne for details. What if I paid MOPS International elsewhere? Your MOPS International membership is good for one year anywhere and everywhere. You only pay the FBC MOPS or MOMSnext membership fee. Do I have to pay MOPS International? Yes, become a part of something awesome. Your membership makes it possible for moms around the world to get support and encouragement from MOPS! Along with the fun perks of being a registered member, you are part of a movement that is changing the world for generations. Moppets Mothers care deeply about their children. They'll instinctively look to meet their child's needs before thinking about their own. A mom needs assurance about her child's well-being and happiness before she can get the most of her time in MOPS. The Moppets ministry contributes to meeting the needs of children, as well as the needs of their moms, through quality care and biblical teaching.
