Student Bake Sale Benefits Food Pantry

Summer and her family are longtime members of FBCG. She and fellow Geneva High School DECA Club members Alex Lopez and Lane Zimmerman organized the cookie bake sale. In all, about 20 students from the club are participating.

“The Food Pantry is very close to my heart,” says Summer. “We chose to do this event because we know there is a need in the community.”

Each month, more than 280 individuals and families benefit from the Food Pantry, which relies completely on donations. We praise God for young people like Summer and her DECA Club friends for their generosity and commitment to helping others!

Update on Word & Table Service

photoWhat members of the FBCG family are saying about the new Word & Table Service…

 “This was our first time at Word & Table and we loved it. If I had to describe the service in three words, they would be: vulnerability, humility and worship.”

“I feel part of a body again at Word & Table, and I have come away each Lord’s day humbled and challenged in my faith. I have been inspired and it has created a longing to be with my body of believers! My family!”

If this sounds like the type of service that would interest you and your family, we encourage you to join us!
