Ladies’ Visitation

October 26 @ 9:30 am - 10:30 am

Teen Program Philosophy:
Our desire is to provide activities and challenges from God’s Word that will assist us in getting to know your teenager’s strengths and weaknesses and encouraging them to love and serve their God supremely. We also know that teens just like to have fun too!

I
Involved
Our goal is to routinely present the young people with opportunities to use their gifts and talents in fulfillment of their God-given responsibility by serving in the church and in the community to find where they fit in for Christian service.

R
Raid (Refreshments at Interesting Destinations)
Our youth group provides monthly opportunities to fellowship with teens of like faith.

O
Outreach
We live in a wonderful community that is filled with lost people. Our teens are encouraged and given opportunities to reach people here and abroad.

N
New Beginnings
These teens are faced with numerous circumstances that are designed to strengthen their relationship with God. Our desire is to use God’s Word to open their eyes to the next step of spiritual growth through personal counseling or Bible preaching.

The future of our youth is determined by what they do today. Our desire at FBC is that our youth glorify God by being salt and light in their community; that they grow in Christlikeness through the trials they face; that they live a victorious Christian life by resisting temptation; that they cultivate godly relationships; and that they do not fulfill the status quo but attempt great things for the glory of God.

“Helping boys and girls to know, love, and serve Jesus”

“Because Kids Matter to God”

The Awana program assist the church and parents in working together to develop spiritually strong children and youth who faithfully follow Jesus Christ. AWANA meets every Wednesday evening from September through May at 7:00 pm. This program is for ages 2 through 6th grades.

The Bible is the cornerstone of ministry here at Faith. The Bible is the authority for our faith and practice. It is the Bible that proclaims the Good News, the message that God loves each of us, that God offers forgiveness, and that God welcomes all who come to Him through faith in His Son, Jesus Christ. Therefore, the study of the Bible is the central focus of all of our ministries for children and adults alike.

Each Sunday morning at 9:00 a.m., groups of preschoolers, children, students, and adults meet to study the Scriptures, to experience Christian fellowship, and to be challenged in Christian service. In this context, we do more than learn about the Bible. Our study is grounded in the strong belief that God’s truths recorded in Scripture can dynamically change a person’s life. We invite you to join us every Sunday morning as we learn how the Bible can transform our thoughts, challenge our attitudes, and inspire us to action!

Nurseries

The nurseries at Faith Baptist Church provide care for children from birth to 3 years old. Our nursery is staffed with voluteers who work often and get to know you and your baby. We also have a supervisor who is over all the nurseries and she will be happy to answer any questions for you. Those who work in the nurseries consider it a privilege to serve the Lord and you by caring for your precious little ones.

Music Ministry

The focus of the music department at FBC is to encourage the congregation while creating an atmosphere for corporate and individual worship of the Lord.

The adult choir, orchestra, vocal soloists, and keyboard team are involved in all Sunday services and the annual Christmas program presented with the Sunday School choir and drama team. Our music is traditional in styling using the beloved hymns of the faith as well as newly composed music by a number of current composers. Our musicians seek to honor Christ by presenting music that is true to Biblical precepts, and their desire is to be used to draw attention to Christ rather than to provide entertainment.

Mississippi Valley Christian School

Several families of Faith Baptist Church in Godfrey, Illinois, founded Mississippi Valley Christian School in 1974. More than 40 years later MVCS now offers K4-12th grade, and has had a large impact on the community.

The mission of Mississippi Valley Christian School is to assist parents in fulfilling their God-given responsibility of training their children to be conformed to the image of Christ spiritually, academically, socially, and physically in order to fulfill the Great Commission.
