Where Can I Serve?
Jesus told us, His disciples, to make disciples of all nations. One of the most important values of this church is our mission to the world. It begins in our own community, and spreads overseas to every nation. Church members are involved in a variety of ministries from things as simple as washing the church vehicles, to preparing the church bulletins, to discipling new believers.
Ministries to evangelize:
Wild Game Dinner
A special evangelization event held each winter is our Wild Game Dinner. Men and women feast on wild game, as well as homemade desserts provided by the families of Faith Baptist Church. Local taxidermists and hunting organizations display their work and provide information, and many companies in and out of Davison provide door prizes for those who attend. The culmination of the evening is an evangelistic message, shared by a guest speaker (who is typically a hunter himself).
The women of Faith Baptist Church have special events planned just for them. In the past, these events have occurred around the holiday time to offer hostessing tips, decorating ideas, and cooking recipes. Tea parties and shopping days have also been scheduled to give the ladies an opportunity for fellowship. Each of the these events provides a chance to invite friends and family members to hear a gospel presentation and to fellowship with the ladies of our church.
Faith Family Fun Fair
The fair is held each summer for hundreds of families in the community. It’s fun and it’s free! Free games. Free petting zoo. Free inflatables. Free food. Free prizes. Free giveaways. Valuable merchant coupons (some for free services). And more! Anyone interested will also hear the gospel.
Bus pick up is available in selected areas of Davison, Burton and Flint for children and adults. Sunday routes run year round, and the Wednesday night route for Kids4Truth and Teen Impact runs from September through May. Call the church office for pick-up information.
Ministries to edify:
Faith Baptist Church realizes the importance of Biblical teaching and discipleship; therefore, Sunday School Class and Adult Bible Class are provided for everyone. Classes meet for an hour before morning worship to study the Bible and to encourage one another in an informal setting.
After Sunday School, children ages four through fourth grade can remain with their age group during the adult worship service to enjoy their own church time.
Kids of Faith
Kids of Faith is a Wednesday night club for children, ages three–sixth grade. Gospel truth is taught in age-appropriate classes. Game time promotes healthy competition and fun. This program has become popular with kids and parents alike!
Retreats for adult men, women, and couples pull us out of the frantic pace required to live in our contemporary culture. Though each retreat is full of fun and fellowship, the primary focus is on gospel truth that has the power to progressively transform our lives and relationships.
Teens in seventh through twelfth grades have the opportunity to participate in a wide range of classes, ministry opportunities, and activities. The youth group meets together on Wednesday nights and Sunday mornings for Sunday school. Activities and ministry opportunities are offered throughout the week, as well as yearly mission trips and camp weeks.
Ladies’ Bible Study
Ladies from the church (as well as visitors) meet on Tuesdays to study the Bible together. Identical sessions are held at 9:30am and 7:00pm to accommodate our ladies’ schedules. The time is spent in prayer, study, and fellowship. For ladies who have children not yet in school, child care is provided.
Ministries to encourage and serve:
Men’s Prayer Breakfast
On the third Wednesday of the month, our widows meet for lunch and fellowship at a local restaurant. Church members as well as friends are welcomed.
On the fourth Thursday of each month, ladies from church who have experienced divorce in their own lives meet together for supper to edify and encourage one another.
Young moms enjoy time out of the house with other moms while the kids play together. From November to May, Playtime is held on the first Thursday of every month at one of the mom’s homes; from June to mid-October, Playtime is held weekly at a local park.
Young at Heart
Our adult seniors also enjoy a time of fellowship and food every month. Those fifty-five to one hundred five are invited to join the Young at Heart for all of its fun activities, such as meeting for lunch or taking day trips.
Life can become lonely when God slows down a person’s mobility. Once or twice a month, a friendly, caring team from the church family visits those who cannot leave their residences. The team’s purpose and passion is to be a personal and spiritual encouragement to these folks.
Nursing Home Ministry
Like those in a shut-in situation, many who live in nursing home are not able to attend a church service or church activity. Many in the church visit people in nursing homes either weekly or twice a month. During the holiday time, special music groups sing and play Christmas carols and hymns. The goal is to remind these dear people that God loves them and to give those in each ministry group and opportunity to share the Gospel.
Our church holds a weekly service on Sunday mornings for residents at a local facility called The Oaks, which is located in Grand Blanc. Every week, a team of people including children and adults alike participate in this vibrant ministry, which includes singing, fellowship, and preaching.
Pleasant, clean, well lit nurseries are available during all regularly scheduled services. Nurseries are staffed with competent and compassionate female workers. Security cameras help insure the safety of our children.
