COMMUNITY & LEARNING
Monthly - MEN Last Thursday 6:30 PM - WOMEN Second Thursday 6:30 PM
We utilize the men’s and women’s Bible studies to develop strong men and women in studying the word of God. We cannot obey what we do not understand. Therefore, we use these Bible Studies to equip men and women to better understand the word of God. It is our conviction that men make men and women make women. Therefore, we utilize these Bible studies to disciple and train up godly men and godly women.
Tuesdays 7 PM

CHRISTIAN EDUCATION CLASSES
Sundays @ 5:30 PM
These 10 six-session classes are a brief survey of the fundamentals of the Christian life. These classes are designed to equip believers with the fundamentals of the Christian faith. Although everybody is encouraged to attend any who are interested in teaching at FBC Fortuna are required to participate in all ten classes. The classes cover the following topics: What is a Healthy Church?, Biblical Interpretation, Missions & Evangelism, Basic Theology I & II, Apologetics & Other World Views; Old Testament Survey, New Testament Survey, Church History, and How to Teach the Bible.
The Church is not a building but a gathering of God's people. This is why we regularly carve out time to gather together. If you come on a Sunday morning you will get to know the living God. But it is during the small unplanned moments that we are best able to get to know each other. That is why we gather to worship the living God on Sundays and then we gather during the week to encourage and care for each other. It is in the context of community groups that church plants will be birthed, mercy ministries will be done, and the gospel will be obeyed in tangible ways.
Wednesday Night 7:00 PM at the Carter's
You are welcome to join us any night to pray, study the bible, and encourage one another. On the first Wednesday night of each month, we meet at 6 PM to share a meal together.
ELDER ASSESSMENT COHORT & MINISTRY TRAINING
We desire to equip and send out not only church planters but also church leaders equipped in various areas of ministry. Our great joy is to see people obey the call to follow Jesus wherever that may take them throughout the world. Therefore, we are eager to train men to serve as Elders for pastoral ministry and leaders for other areas of ministry too. The Elder Assesment Cohort is a year-long commitment that begins in September of each year. This assessment is for those who are considering becoming Elders/Pastors.
Sunday 9:45 AM
Our Sunday School program is designed to teach the entire Bible in 3-year cycles. Each class is age-appropriate and is studying the same lesson. This way Dad and Mom can help their children better understand the lesson at home. Our children’s classes are taught by teachers who love Jesus and love their students.
