Neighborhood Dinner

For 8 weeks (Jan. 10-Feb. 28), FBC is piloting a new ministry called “Neighborhood Dinner“ on
 Wednesday evenings at 6pm. Following dinner, there will be an opportunity to participate in group studies. An online sign-up to participate and volunteer is available here.

Neighborhood Dinner is an "all hands on deck" kind 
of opportunity! Volunteers are needed for set up, clean up, childcare, mentoring elementary kids, helpers for preschoolers & hospitality/welcome team. If you are willing to pitch in, please sign up in the back of the Sanctuary or use the online sign-up. Email amanda@fbcplattecity.com with any questions.

Breakout Sessions

Strong Families

Strong Families is an opportunity for families to share a meal and then participate in parenting classes with group discussion while kids participate in a program to learn life skills. This is an open group for all types of families and is facilitated by Nick Macaluso, licensed psychologist. The goal of SF is to provide a village of support for every family and strengthen family relationships. 


Strong Kids

All kids (preschool through 5th grade) who join us on Wednesdays will participate in our Strong Kids program. Strong Kids is an opportunity for social and emotional learning to build resilience. Our lessons center around social and emotional growth that will benefit them for a lifetime. 


GriefShare

GriefShare is a time for small group video and discussion for those who have experienced the loss of a loved one. Those interested can jump in whenever they feel ready. To learn more, find our group on the website www.griefshare.org or email Tammy at dalekisker@hotmail.com.


Marriage Workshop

One of our sessions will bring couples through the study “A Lifelong Love” by Gary Thomas. This study addresses the ways that couples often settle for too little in marriage and miss out on the richness that God intended for us to experience. These sessions will include a video, small group discussion, and end with time for couples to discuss privately.  


Mid-Week Bible Study

Our Mid-week Bible Study dives into scripture to study the Bible chapter by chapter. If you are looking for a place to become familiar with the Bible or go deeper in your understanding, this is an opportunity to do that with a group of people who will welcome you in.  


Youth Small Groups

Our students meet regularly throughout the year in homes across the community. While Neighborhood Dinner is in session, youth will join FBC for dinner and then gather on campus for their Guys’ and Ladies’ small group time. Middle school girls' group will continue to meet in a home off campus on Thursdays.


7 Realities of Experiencing God

This study follows the concepts in the book  “Experiencing God” by Henry Blackaby. It explores what it looks like to know and do the will of God and answers questions such as, “How does God speak to people?” and “How do I join God in what He’s doing around me?” The Experiencing God study is beneficial whether you are new in your faith or have been a Christian for a long time. Members of this group will receive a copy of the book if they’d like to read it as well.


Serve Team

The Serve Team will participate in projects that support local programs and community members. This is an opportunity to help our neighbors in practical ways while building relationships. Projects will vary from week to week and kids who are old enough to assist are welcome to participate with their parents.
