AWANA is a Bible-centered children’s ministry program that we offer at FSBC for children ages 3 through 5th grade. AWANA is an acrostic derived from 2 Timothy 2:15 that stands for Approved Workmen Are Not Ashamed.  Our goal is to come alongside parents to help raise spiritual champions who know, love and serve Christ.  Registration will be available online. Click here to register.

Questions? Contact our Awana Commander, Doug Munsell at Awana meets Wednesdays from 6:10–7:30pm.

September is the start of our Viola Webb Missions Offering. Viola found many ways to share her passion about missions as a pastor’s wife and ultimately serving through the Kansas-Nebraska Southern Baptists. We split the offering between the Kansas Nebraska Convention of Southern Baptist and the Western Kansas Baptist Association (WKBA).Our goal this year is $3,000.
Prayer for Deacons

The Deacon body has continued to meet since the pandemic.  Sometimes the meetings have occurred via Zoom but as restrictions have eased, we have met in person to pray for our pastor, his family and our church family.  Presently there are eight serving deacons.  The Deacon body doesn’t feel like that is sufficient to meet all that is required to serve effectively.  In the coming weeks you will be receiving a call for deacons. As we begin the steps necessary to do this, the Deacons are asking that you pray along for God’s direction as we move toward this call.  Presently, our  Deacons are:
  • Jim Dodge
  • Gary Classen
  • Jimmie Farr
  • Richard Isaacs
  • Steve McKee
  • David Short
  • Gary Staiger
  • Doug Werner
If you feel God nudging you to serve as a deacon but are concerned that you just don’t know enough about the Bible, please consider that a deacon is, above all else, a servant.  (Acts 6).   In fact the scriptural qualifications of a deacon found in 1 Timothy 3:8-13 focus on character and family life and not how many Bible verses you can quote from memory.  Please pray for God to bring to mind the men of our church who can fill this vital role.
If you should have any questions about deacons and what they do, please do not hesitate to contact any of the deacons named above.
Tuesday Morning Women’s Bible Study with Shari Abbott will be starting back up on Tuesday, September 8th at 9:30 AM here at the church.  We will be doing the study One in a Million by Priscilla Shirer.  Click below to sign up or call the church office at 624-0186.

Our next food cupboard will be on Saturday, September 12th.  We are needing some items to help fill the food bags.  Please bring these items to the church: 
Spaghetti Sauce, Peanut Butter, Jelly, 1 lb. bag of Rice, Ramon Noodles.  
You may also donate by marking your check or offering envelope “Food Cupboard”.
