Upcoming Events

Check back to this page to see the events that our community is hosting in the coming weeks and months!

At this time, we have resumed most in person events, though continue to have virtual options to make gatherings more accessible. This page will list upcoming events, and links for online meetings can be found in the weekly email.

Weekly Events

— Services are held every Sunday at 10 AM. We are currently holding in-person services and events in the sanctuary at FBC and require that all who attend remain masked while in the building. We continue to monitor the COVID situation and provide an update on what activities are happening in person in the weekly newsletter. 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).

— 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 Handbells Choir and Chancel Choir have been on hiatus for the summer but will be resuming on Thursday nights starting on Thursday, September 22. Chancel Choir meets at 7:30 PM in Gordon Hall.

Tiny Church

Tiny Church groups are intended to be spaces of connection. Intentionally tiny, they will preserve our COVID protocols while promoting 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 SUMMER HIATUS

Monthly Tiny Church Groups

  • Board Game Group: 1st Sunday of the month at 1 PM at Redemption Rock Brewery (next on Sunday, October 2nd)
  • 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, September 23rd)

Special Events

—  Men’s Breakfast is held the 3rd Saturday of the month at the Briarwood Cafe. The next meeting is Saturday, September 17th at 8:30 AM.

—  Next Sunday is our Blessing of the Animals service. Bring your non-human family members (leashed or crated), or a memento of those who’ve passed on, and we will celebrate God’s expansive love for all creation. We will offer a blessing over you and your non-human family members (living or departed). Worship will take place at 10am on our church green in the front, and in the event of rain, the following Sunday will serve as our backup.

—  If you are handy, or tidy, or simply want to serve in the spirit of your faith, we need your help on Saturday the 24th as we aim to spruce up our space. Your church has been understaffed for quite awhile, and as hard as they’ve been working, they just can’t quite get to everything. A good turnout will give a boost to Mark and Gayle in particular, and for all who do show up to pitch in, they’ll receive a ticket to the WooSox game on Sunday, the 25th after worship! Also: if you aren’t able to participate in some of the physical efforts, we will also have post cards on hand for you to write a few notes to church members in anticipation of Celebration Sunday on October 2nd!

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.
