Our Ministries 2

 Annie M. Davis Scholarship

The Scholarship Ministry assists students who are pursuing a college education by providing financial assistance, information resources, mentoring, encouragement and testing to determine what each student's may be.

Christian Education
The mission of the Christian Education Ministry is to teach and train disciples for service in the Kingdom of God.  The Ministry strives toward the equipping of the saints, through conferences, seminars, and workshops and other trainings for the support and enhancement of Ministry. 

"Above all, love each other deeply, because love covers over a multitude of sins.  Offer hospitality to one another without grumbling. Each one should use whatever gift he has received to serve others, faithfully administering God's grace in its various forms.  If anyone speaks, he should do it as one seeking the very words of God.  If anyone serves, he should do it with the strength God provides, so that in all things God may be praised through Jesus Christ.  To him be that glory and the power for ever and ever. Amen." 1 Peter 4:8-11

Christian Men In Action (C.M.I.A)
The mission of CMIA is to provide men with resources to develop godly character and to equip them to influence the church and their community for Christ. Becoming a Christian is not a destination; it is the beginning of a life-long journey.

Church School
II Timothy 3:16 "All scripture is given by inspiration of God, and is profitable for doctrine, for reproof, for correction, for instruction in righteousness."
 
Each Sunday morning at 8:45 a.m. the Sunday School ministry offers more than twenty educational, uplifting, edifying and soul-stirring classes for students in various stages of their Christian development. The Word of God is the central text for each class accompanied by supplemental resource materials as persons learn through Christ-centered teaching how to live by faith, walk in God's power and apply practical Christian principles to their daily lives. Specialized classes are offered for the hearing-impaired, teens, married and engaged couples, Spanish-speaking students as well as various adult classes.

Credit Union
The Faith Baptist Church Federal Credit Union Ministry provides a safe place for members to save and borrow funds for any worthwhile purpose at a reasonable rate. Members can save and earn dividends on their savings. They can borrow needed funds at rates that are usually less than the rates charged by banks and other lenders. Unlike banks, the credit union is owned and operated by its members who elect members to the Board of Directors.

Drama Ministry
The Drama Ministry is an exciting and growing ministry of Fantastic Faith. We see drama as a powerful form of communication that can be used to illustrate, challenge, confront, entertain and inspire.

The team has also provided dramatic skits during special holiday services, regular services for event publicity.

Greeters
The mission of the Greeters Ministry is to greet first time visitors, welcome them to our worship service, and assist all worshippers who enter the church.

Home Mission
"And Jesus came and spake unto them, saying, All power is given unto me in heaven and in earth. Go ye therefore, and teach all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Ghost: Teaching them to observe all things whatsoever I have commanded you: and, lo, I am with you always, even unto the end of the world. Amen." Matthew 28:18-20
"If missions languish, it is because the whole life of godliness is feeble. The command to go everywhere and preach to everybody is not obeyed until the will is lost by self-surrender in the will of God. Living, praying, giving and going will always be found together." -- Arthur T. Pierson

Intercessory Prayer
Intercession is to stand in the gap for other people, to concentrate on the needs and wants of other people. I urge, then, first of all, that request, prayers, intercession, and thanksgiving be made for everyone - for kings and all those in authority, that we may live peaceful and quite lives in all godliness and holiness. (1 Tim. 2:1-2)


Junior Ushers
Provides a training environment for Faith's youth ages 11-18 as they assist in the orderly conduct of church services by greeting and seating worshippers.  Meetings are held on the Thursday before the second Sunday of each month at 6:30 p.m. Psalm 84:10.
Music

"It came even to pass, as the trumpeters and singers were as one, to make one sound to be heard in praising and thanking the Lord; and when they lifted up their voice with the ... instruments of music, ... that then the house was filled with a cloud, even the house of the Lord; so that the priests could not stand to minister by reason of the cloud: for the glory of the Lord had filled the house of God." II Chronicles 5:13, 14

Nurses

Ps. 27:14 Wait upon the Lord: be of good courage, and he shall strengthen thine heart: wait I say, on the Lord. (This is to rest) Ps. 28:7 The Lord is my strength and my shield; my heart trusted in him and I am helped: therefore my heart greatly rejoiceth; and with my song will I praise him. Ps. 31:24 Be of good courage, and He shall strength your heart, all ye that hope in the Lord. Ps. 73:26 My flesh and my heart faileth: but God is the strength of my heart, and my portion forever. Prov. 4:24 Keep thy heart will all diligence; for out of it are the issues of life. Prov. 17:22 A merry heart doeth good like medicine: but a broken drieth the bones.

The mission of the ministry is to provide a service that enhances the witness of Christ as Savior and embraces the true meaning that the "greatest of these is love". The Pastor's Partners Ministry witnesses by serving and our serving is a labor of love.

Praise Dancers

The dance team will minister before the congregation to 1) usher in a spirit of reverence, worship and celebration, preparing the congregation to receive the Word of the Lord brought forth during the message and 2) celebrate the goodness of God through dance during special occasions and services.

Season Adult Ministry
The purpose of the Seasoned Adult Ministry is to extend the mission of the FTMBC to the senior members of the congregation. To assist them in understanding the biblical role in their senior years and how this relates to their daily lives. To build self-esteem and confidence in them by showing them how God can still use them; to pray and intercede together, to encourage and serve others within the senior community using the mission of the church as their guide.

Senior Ushers
The purpose of the Ushers Ministry shall be that each Usher represents God's heart to everyone entering the sanctuary. An Usher needs to make each person he/she has contact with feel "special" because they are special to God. This ministry to people is fundamental and can be defined as helping those attending our services to feel wanted, comfortable and important regardless of where they are in their spiritual development, as defined by our Church Mission Statement.
