There are several ways that men, both young and aged, can get plugged in and connected with other men for help, encouragement, and spiritual growth. Every Friday our men meet in the OFC for breakfast and prayer at 7:00am. For those that prefer an evening get-together, we offer a Men's Bible study that meets in homes and online through zoom. Each study dives into the New Testament and goes chapter by chapter so as to get as much out of it as possible. For more information on the Bible Study, you can email the address below.

"Beyond" Special Needs Ministry
The Beyond Bible study group is a group for special needs young adults that have graduated (“beyond”) from high school. We meet on Zoom for the Bible study from 6:30pm to 7:30pm each Wednesday night. One Wednesday per month we meet in person for dinner and Bible study at a restaurant. Every other month, we do an activity together such as bowling or putt-putt golf. If you would like to participate, we would love to have you. The Zoom link can be sent upon request.

Operation Christmas Child
The mission of Operation Christmas Child, under the umbrella of Samaritan's Purse, is to demonstrate God’s love in a tangible way to children in need around the world. Through shoeboxes, Samaritan’s Purse partners with the local church worldwide to share the Good News of Jesus Christ and make disciples of the nations. Once a child receives a shoebox gift, they have the opportunity to attend a 12-week discipleship class. FBCW on average sends 1500 shoeboxes each year. Barb Schadler is the church's Project Leader; she has some ladies that work on them all year. They sharpen pencils, make Tic Tac Toe games, remove packaging, fold socks, sew blankets etc. Our OFC Building is a Central Drop Off location and has been for 10 years. Barb Schadler arranges a packing party in October where the church comes together to pack 800 shoeboxes. The other 700 boxes come from individuals packing their own and dropping them off. During collection week, we usually have 6 dedicated volunteers that help daily throughout the week, but a lot of others pop in and out. Please join us as we make just a small impact on the Kingdom of God by packing shoeboxes in the name of Jesus!

Our women’s ministry is a great way for women to fellowship and spend time together. We like to go out and do fun things together. In the past we have gone to see Sherri from the Brant Hansen show, attended the Aspire Women’s Conference, along with other fun outings.

Praise ye the Lord. I will praise the Lord with my whole heart, in the assembly of the upright, and in the congregation.”
The purpose of the Music Ministry is to exhort, uplift, and encourage the body of Christ through song and worship. The Music Ministry encompasses the Praise Team, adult choir, and children’s choir. All are welcome to participate in any of the choirs. We must all strive to live according to God’s will and purpose and be on one accord in mind and heart according to the word of God.
A key component of the Music Ministry is the praise and worship portion of the service on Sunday mornings or other functions when called upon by the pastor. The significance of praise and worship is of profound importance in the lives of the children of God.
