Upcoming Sermon Series: Hard Questions

Everyone has questions about what the Bible says about different issues. Pastor Scott wants to address these questions that you have with a series on Sunday mornings later in 2016. He wants this series to be focused on the hard questions you have, but to do this he needs to know what those questions or issues are. Help him by clicking here and submitting 3 “Hard Questions” that you would like to hear what answers the Bible has.

New Small Groups Start 

The first Sunday in June begins a new year in all of our small groups. Children and students promote to the next grade. High School seniors join 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.

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:

Worship is at 10:00a in the Worship Center on the 2nd floor and in the Family Life Center on the 1st 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

Common Ground (Worship service with TN Tech BCM at 8p. More info at
