Morning Worship Only on 1/24

Due to the amount of snow and that many backroads are still covered, all small groups and evening activities are cancelled for Sunday, 1/24. We will gather for worship at 10a. If you cannot make it safely, please stay home and join on TV ch. 192 or stream the service by clicking here.

Kingdom Men Conference

Men are called to lead in three different areas: the home, the workplace, and the church. On February 6th beginning at 9a and going till 1p, we will look at what the man of God in the home, the workplace, and the church looks like. The cost is $10 which covers the conference, lunch, and entry into drawings for door prizes that include K2 coolers, Mossy Oak backpacks, and a gun. Register by calling the church office, Sunday mornings outside the Worship Center, or online (click here).

Sunday Night Bible Studies

This quarter we are having all of our Sunday night Bible studies join together in the Sanctuary at 6p for a study on discipleship led by Pastor Scott. Children and youth activities will still begin at 5:30p on the 3rd & 4th floors, respectively. There will be a time of fellowship before the adult study in the cafe on the 1st floor.

TN Tech is Here!

We have 12,000 college students in Cookeville for the Spring semester. Many of these students are freshmen and transfer students living in Cookeville for the first time. At FBC, we love our college students and want to be a place in Cookeville where you can grow as a follower of Jesus and find community to support you in that walk. Each week there are several connection points:

Sunday
Worship is at 10:00a in the Worship Center on the 2nd floor. You will find many of our college students up in the middle section close to the front.
“Lunch & the Word” (College Small Group) meets at 11:30a in the Fellowship Hall. Each Sunday we have lunch together and do a Bible study. This Spring we are in the book of Exodus as we continue a three year walk through the Bible from Genesis to Revelation. The Bible is one story and that story is the Gospel. All of Scripture points to Jesus whether it is the Old Testament pointing forward to the cross or it is the New Testament that points back to the cross. Join us each Sunday for lunch and a time of Bible study.

This is also a great way for our church to serve and love on our college students by preparing lunch for them. We are looking for families or small groups that would prepare a meal for our students. If you are interested, contact Alex at amelton@fbccookeville.org.

Tuesday
Common Ground (Worship service with TN Tech BCM at 8p. More info at http://www.tntechbcm.com)

Contact Alex for more details how you can be a part of the college ministry and impact Tennessee Tech!

New Small Groups Started 

The first Sunday in August begins a new year in all of our small groups. Children and students promoted to the next grade. High School seniors joined the college group. This is a time of new connections for our children and students, but also can be for our adults. If you haven’t found a small group to do life and learn the Bible with then check out our list of small groups or have us help you find one here.
