Making a Difference


Sometimes it’s comfortable to do things the same old way: buy the same brand of breakfast cereal every week, drink from a favorite coffee mug every day, or snuggle into that old sweater that’s a little too small. However, sometimes it’s good to stretch into something new. Stephen Ministry may be where God is calling you to S – T – R – E – T – C – H.

Applications to join our Stephen Ministry team are available at the Reception Desk and at the FBG Website under “Serve.” A 50-hour training class will begin on January 9 and continue until the end of April. Weekly sessions will be held on Tuesdays from
5:30-8:00pm. Additional Saturday sessions will be held on January 27 and April 21, from 9:30am-3:00pm. Commissioning will take place during a worship service in May. The deadline for applications is January 3. Please contact a Stephen Minister for further information: Robin Barton, Wofford Green, Hazel Harris, Duke McCall or Ann Quattlebaum.

How to Request a Stephen Minister: If either you or someone you know is having a difficult time dealing with a life crisis and need the caring friendship and support of a Stephen Minister, please contact one of FBG’s Stephen Leaders/Ministers to ask for a referral card or get one at the church Reception Desk.
