Neighborhood Dinner

Neighborhood Dinner is an opportunity for our community to gather for dinner and small groups.  On these nights, we gather for a meal at 6pm and then participate in groups for parenting, personal growth, and exploring faith.  Meals and childcare are provided at no cost.  Email amanda@fbcplattecity.com with any questions.

Breakout Sessions

  • Strong Families

    Strong Families is an opportunity for families to participate in practical parenting classes with group discussion while kids and teens 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 for parents to grow as individuals and strengthen connections in their relationships.

  • 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. GriefShare shares a meal at 5:30pm before starting the video session at 6pm.  To learn more, find our group on the website www.griefshare.org or email Tammy at dalekisker@hotmail.com.

  • The Road Back to You

    Ignorance is bliss - except in self-awareness. What you don't know about yourself can hurt you and your relationships. It can also keep you in the shallows with God. Do you want help figuring out who you are and why you're stuck in the same ruts?  The Enneagram is an ancient personality type system with an uncanny accuracy in describing how human beings are wired, both positively and negatively. This is an opportunity to explore the enneagram for a deeper knowledge of God and of ourselves, leading you into places of spiritual discovery you would never have found on your own, and paving the way to the person you want to become.


  • 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.  


  • Jobs for Life

    Become employable for the rest of your life. The Jobs for Life class, through the local church and partnerships with local businesses, helps men and women find employment, learn God’s gift of work, receive a supportive community through mentorship, and experience life in Christ.  As a graduate of Jobs for Life, you will: understand the dignity of work, complete a vocational plan, meet with local employers, be prepared in job interviews, create a professional resume, build a network, and learn God’s plan for your life.  This course also meets on Sunday mornings at 10:30am on the FBC Campus with lunch provided.


  • Celebrate Recovery

    Celebrate Recovery is a Christ centered program that gives people the resources and relationships to help recover from life's hurts, habits, and hang-ups. This unique co-ed session will be following a DVD study called “Life’s Healing Choices.”


Options for Children & Teens

Nursery

After dinner, free childcare is provided for infants through 2 years old for parents attending our breakout sessions or serving during our Neighborhood Dinners.


Preschool

Our preschoolers will be participating in their own Strong Kids activities for social and emotional development.  Each lesson will use hands on activities and games to teach these big ideas at a younger level for ages 3 through 5.


Children In Action

Children in Action is a missions discipleship organization for children in grades K–5. Every child has an important place in Children in Action. Through these gatherings, kids learn about and pray for missions. They do missions work and give money to missions. Plus, they have a great time!  This is a program that continues weekly after Neighborhood Dinner.


Strong Kids

Kids ages kindergarten through 5th grade are invited to participate in our Strong Kids program.  Strong Kids is an opportunity for social and emotional learning to build resilience.  Our lessons center around life skills and personal growth that will benefit them for a lifetime.  All activities are hands on and give an opportunity to process big feelings with safe adults they can trust.


Student Ministry Small Groups

Our teenage students meet regularly throughout the year in homes across the community.  While Neighborhood Dinner is in session, middle school and high school students are encouraged to serve as a volunteer or join one of the breakout sessions.  Our regular Student Ministry small groups gather off campus on Thursday evenings.
