FBC & Community Youth Explosion!

FBC & Community Youth Explosion

Come join the youth of First Baptist Church of Greater Cleveland to celebrate summer. We invite all of our friends, family, and neighbors in the community to have a blast with us as we give praise and have fun. We will have karaoke for our current favorite music artists. Are you shy or you can’t sing don’t worry, some of us will be playing video games during the evening on our FBC Xbox systems. Be sure and come hungry because we will have the makings for burritos, chips and salsa from Chipotle to fill the void.
 Let’s continue to create and sustain our community of faith, support each other and shine as Christians. See you soon!

MOPS at FBC (Mothers Of PreSchoolers)

Beginning Friday, September 13th, 2019
in Spahr Center from 9:30-11:30 am

MOPS (Mothers Of PreSchoolers) is a group for mothers of young children to come together and support each other through bi-monthly meetings.  Childcare is provided.

To The Full from MOPS International on Vimeo.

What is MOPS?

MOPS groups gather and support moms. We believe in the simple but revolutionary idea that remarkable things happen when moms come together, face to face. That’s why we rally women to come together in their own neighborhoods and help each other through this thing called motherhood, one gathering at a time.

Our acronym stands for “Mothers of Preschoolers” because we began in 1973 when a group of moms of young children banded together to share their lives and parenting journeys. Over the past forty-five years, MOPS has expanded our reach to include moms with older kids, partnering with churches and organizations worldwide to equip and encourage moms in more than 60 countries.

If you are expecting or have an infant, toddler or preschooler: Try one of our traditional MOPS groups. Every group offers its own unique feel, so try more than one to see which fits you best. Many groups offer childcare, so you can get a chance to connect with moms, face to face, while your kids are safe and making friends, too. You can join MOPS for just $31.95, but groups may require additional fees to cover expenses, such as childcare. Go here for a list of MOPS groups in your area.

Single Service Summer

Single Service Summer

Our Summer Services will be Theme Based with Multiple Music Styles

We are expanding on our successful worship format of the past two years beginning with the 10 AM Sunday, June 9 service.

Each 10 AM Sunday service will be preceded at 9:30 AM by a short fellowship time including coffee, tea, juice, and delicious goodies. Late risers won’t have to go hungry during the service. Unconsumed goodies will be allowed in the church.

Each service will include a mix of traditional and contemporary style music typical of the church’s separate traditional and contemporary services scheduled for the balance of each year. For example, one Sunday a powerful organ prelude will start things off, and the following Sunday the church’s talented Praise Team and Band will assume that opening role. Alternating styles for other elements of each service will take advantage of the many talented members and friends of the church.

And if you ever wanted to try singing in a church choir, you are welcome to join members of the church “Sometime Sunday Singers,” a group of regular choir members and congregation volunteers who meet at 9:15 AM to learn a simple song that is sung during that day’s service. No audition required!

One of the most enjoyable aspects of the summer worship schedule will be the theme assigned to each Sunday, an effort to introduce a more relaxed and engaging atmosphere.

Sunday, June 9 is “Hat Day,” when you are encouraged to wear a hat of your choosing, the more elaborate the better. Hats will be available if you don’t have one of your own. And since the majority of hat wearers traditionally are women, we will limit singing to the fairer sex on this Sunday.

Everyone loves to eat, so we have incorporated a “Dollar Dog Sunday” on June 16 and encourage you to wear whatever Cleveland Indians attire you have. Hot dogs will be in the Courtyard after the service. And ice cream and root beer floats will follow the two “Ice Cream Sundae” services of July 14 and August 11.

While we are on the subject of food, don’t forget the “Tailgate Party Sunday” where we will have a picnic in the parking lot and admire once again everyone’s Cleveland Indians attire.

On June 23 you can wear a T-shirt on “T-Shirt Sunday,” and on July 21 you are encouraged to wear your most outrageous Hawaiian shirt on “Hawaiian Sunday.”

On June 30 the Community Service Sunday will move to the front steps of the church so any and everyone can stop by. You are encouraged to bring a lawn chair so you will be comfortable on the front lawn of the church surrounded by neighbors and friends.

We encourage clothing in red, white, and/or blue on Independence Celebration Sunday which will actually be on Sunday, July 7.

You won’t want to miss Christmas in July on July 28 when the music will be predominantly Christmas Carols.

Recognizing the importance of our dedication to the community around us you will be encouraged to bring school supplies for struggling public schools while you wear a shirt with a logo from your favorite school on Back to School Sunday, August 18th, and non-perishable food for the hungry on Homecoming Sunday, August 25.
