Local Missions

Your life is a mission trip!

 Whether it's across town or around the world, we want to equip everyone at FBC to fulfill the Great Commission!  When it comes to serving locally or globally, it's not either/or, but both/and!  Look around on our page and find a place to "GO"!  You can also visit "missions wall" at FBC and find lots of great information about missions opportunities..
