—  Check back soon for an updated list of special events for December.

Weekly Events

— Services are held every Sunday at 10 AM. We are currently holding in-person services and events in the sanctuary at FBC. The Covid Task Force and the Coordinating Council have agreed to suspend the mandatory wearing of masks in and around the church buildings as of now. This is in line with the common practice in most public places at this time. In order to maintain the safety and security of all who come to FBC, we have designated some pews in the middle section on the lectern side of the aisle as “mask required” seats. These places are for those who would feel more comfortable being only with others who are masked. The seats will be designated with signage on Sunday and ushers will be on hand to assist you. For those who are unable to attend in person or feel more comfortable attending virtually, all services will continue to be streamed on Facebook and can be viewed on our Sermons page.

— Bibles and Bagels is a Bible study focusing on both Old and New Testament texts. Study occurs Sundays at 8:30 AM (via Zoom).

— Handbell Ensemble (aka the “Bellerinas”) meets Mondays and Thursdays at 6:00 PM in the Music Room until December 12.

— FBC Brews Coffeehouse meets every Wednesday in the Lee Room. Join us 10 AM – 12 PM to mingle with old or new friends over free coffee and tea. Bring a snack and some stories to share.

— The Social Justice group is focusing on how to be antiracists in our community. This group meets on the first Wednesday of the month at 6 PM (via Zoom).

— The Shared Workspace and Study Hall happens in the Lee Room on Thursdays from 1:00-4:30pm. Bring your own snacks and drinks (FBC Coffee will be available).

— The Chancel Choir meet on Thursday nights at 7:30 PM in Gordon Hall.

Tiny Church

Tiny Church groups are intended to be spaces of connection. Intentionally tiny, they promote ways to cultivate friendship, belonging, and meaning together. With a limit of 8 people (2-8 people max), these groups will be self-sustaining and led by anyone inspired to get a tiny number of people together around a shared interest. Some meet weekly (e.g. Pickleball, Fridays by the Fire, Knitters) and some meet monthly (e.g. Photography, Smorgasbord, Game “Night”). We have created a form to help us know how to connect you to a Tiny Church group. Click on this link and fill out the survey to help us track member feedback on how best to coordinate this effort.

Weekly Tiny Church Groups:

  • Pickleball: Mondays at 6 PM in Gordon Hall
  • Knitting Group: Wednesdays at 2 PM at the church
  • Storytelling/Creative Writing: Wednesday nights at 8 PM via Zoom
  • Big Questions: Thursdays at 6:30 PM in the Lee Room -ON HIATUS

Monthly Tiny Church Groups

  • Board Game Group: 1st Sunday of the month at 1 PM at Redemption Rock Brewery (next on Sunday, December 4th)
  • Photography Group: 1st Saturday of the month via Zoom
  • Poetry Group
  • Fridays by the Fire: 4th Friday of the month at 5:30pm at Courtney’s home (next on Friday, November 25th)

Scrogin Book Forums

The Scrogin Great Issues Book Forum meets monthly (except during the summer) to discuss a book of interest relating to a contemporary theme or concern. During the season, listing of books for the current series can be found here and in the Going Library on the second floor. We will start the 2022-2023 series on September 25.
