Sunday School Lead Teacher or Assistant Teacher: During the Group Life hour (which we still refer to as ‘Sunday School’ within the preschool!), preschoolers are read a Bible story, taught a Bible truth, and complete correlating crafts/activities. Many of our current volunteers in this area do this on an every other week rotation in order to maintain community with their own adult Group Life class as well.

4). Sunday School Teacher Sub: Preschool teacher subs are added to a sub list to be contacted on an as needed basis. Subs are predominately used within 3s-kinder age classrooms.

Serving is a vital part of your discipleship journey. So our goal is that when you serve, you know the significant impact you make, you have built friendships on your team, and you are having fun. Take the first step in expressing your interest in serving on one of our teams by feeling out the following application.

SAM - STUDENT ADOPTION MINISTRY

We love that our church is located so close to A&M and Blinn. College is such a formative time of life. Quite often, students make decisions in college that will affect the overall trajectory of their lives. What a strategic time for the church to come alongside college students and help them make Jesus their all.

One way that FBC accomplishes this with college students is through our Student Adoptive Ministry. Many students are making these life changing decisions away from home, on their own for the first time and sometimes feeling isolated. We want our people to be able to provide a home away from home for students that desire that. While students are on their own possibly for the first time, you can be there for encouragement or simply a home cooked meal.
