Corporate Worshipis the central ministry of our congregation designed to promote a sense of joy in what God has done for us in Jesus. Our worship focuses upon the exposition of God’s Word (i.e., biblical preaching) as the primary tool to bring us and others to a knowledge of our Great God and our need to respond to Him. Prayer, the reading of the Word, congregational singing, testimonials, and the ordinances serve to draw our attention to God and give us opportunities to worship to Him.
Sunday School facilitates growth in the knowledge of Christ through age-appropriate, intentional study of God's Word. Sunday School serves to educate believers in the things of the Lord and to evangelize those who do not know Christ.
Growth groups provide the encouragement, correction and accountability we all need to keep us from drifting and cause us to grow in Christ. Our aim is for them to be transformational in three ways: (1) Transforming believers through Bible study, fellowship, accountability and prayer (2) Transforming unbelievers as we intentionally invite them to our groups where they can see the gospel in action (3) Transforming Newberry as we intentionally seek out ways to be involved in our town and have a salt and light influence. They will follow a 1-4-1 pattern of 1 social activity each month, 4 group meetings, and 1 community activity.
Music Ministryexists to promote the worship of God by means of voices and instruments. Most Sunday's we have a choir. Vocal solos, duets, and instrumental numbers are occasional worship features.
Biblical Counselingis provided free of charge to everyone. We believe God’s word contains the solutions for all the spiritual problems of life and our pastor or one of our trained laymen would be privileged to serve you in this way. Please call the church to make an appointment.
Church Membershipis a crucial part of our ministry in that we believe every Christian should be committed to a good local church where he or she can be cared for in an atmosphere that encourages spiritual growth. If you are not a member of a Gospel-believing, Bible-preaching church, it would be our joy and privilege to serve you in this way. If you would like to attend our church pre-membership class to help you discover if FBC is right for you, please contact the church for more information
