About the Auxiliary ministries
At Faith Bible Church (FBC) we know that each stage of life presents us with unique needs and challenges, so we felt that it was necessary to create a place where singles could not only be served, but also serve each other!
We aim to create a space for single, dating, and newlywed members of our congregation to have a place to fellowship and encourage one another as we venture through our personal life journeys. This ministry will talk about dating and relationships through the scope of young Christian adults, but will not be limited to only that as we will also discuss the misadventures of adulting as well.
Please stay turned for upcoming information related to the ministry and feel free to contact Sis. Tonika Jones or Elder Baker if you have any questions!
