***connect – serve***

As we enter a new phase of ministry at First Baptist Church Fairfield, there are so many opportunities to connect and serve that we added this page to keep you posted on a regular basis!  Check this page often to find out the most current NEWS on how you can connect with others and serve as part of the community at FBCF.   Complete the response below to let us know HOW you want to connect and serve!

 

APRIL 20th – Community Egg Hunt!  Volunteers are needed as we work with other area churches and organizations to put on the Hunt at the Square for the kids of Fairfiled.  We have been asked to provide baked goods for the cake walk and BARE cupcakes for the kids decorating booth.  These should be delivered to George Robinson’s Office (on the square) by 10am on 4/20.  Not a baker?  You can also volunteer in other ways – sit in the dunkin’ booth, help set up/clean up, or help man the event!

 

Childcare Providers Needed:  May 4th 9:30am – 11:30’ish…. We need volunteers to help watch any children that might need care while their mothers attend the Women’s Ministry Connecting event.  Then May 5th from 4:45 – 6:30’ish….  We are asking for volunteers to serve our newer families by providing care during our first ever Discover Class event.  Parents will be busy learning about FBCF and how they can connect with what God is doing here and we need some help keeping their kids occupied during this time.

 

Spring Cleaning is on May 1 – 11 we will be focusing on sprucing up – both indoors and outdoors!  Replacing ceiling tiles, rearranging closets, sweeping & polishing pews and cushion repair are a few indoor chores.  Outside we need to spread new rock, tend to flowerbeds and more!  So watch for project sign ups coming soon…

 

FBCF Online Community – Have you registered for your online account?  Think of your REALM account as an exclusive social media account (like facebook) just for your church family!  Realm allows you to interface with others in the church as well as our church office, receive special announcements, manage your giving, and even update your contact information should it change!  You will notice when you log on that REALM is still under construction, that is because we need YOU registered to make it work!  So set up your user profile today.

Security, Ushers & Hospitality Teams – are growing and need help!  We are asking for men to step forward and volunteer their time to assist our deacons with security patrol and ushering on Sunday Mornings.  Please see one of our Deacons if you would like to begin training to serve with this team.  We can also use some help with general greeting and providing ministry information in the Gathering Place.  If you are a friendly outgoing personality – minister in the Gathering Place by making everyone feel welcome and informed!

 

busministry2Ride the BUS, see Kids grow to love The Lord!  We need additional adults to assist with our Bus Ministry.  For security purposes, we require at least 2 adults on every Bus!  Please contact the church office if you can assist with this mission outreach ministry to our community.

 

SECURITY UPDATES!  Because safety is a priority at FBCF, we are in the process of updating background checks and applications for ALL volunteers and employees serving in ANY ministry that comes in contact with minors.  This includes student ministry, Team Kid, Kid Connect, VBS, Nursery, PDO, Bus Ministry, Upward, etc…  Please pick up an updated application form from the Gathering Place or the church office (or download below) and return it with a copy of your photo ID (to be kept secure with your application in the office) as soon as possible:
