Four Sundays a year, or quarterly, we offer a newcomer luncheon after our 11 a.m. worship service to discuss questions about theology and to talk about what FBC, an American Baptist Church, is all about.
Six Thursdays a year we offer a social luncheon called “Meet & Eat!” This is a time to socialize and meet FBC members and friends while enjoying a delicious lunch provided by our Family Care Committee.
At First Baptist Church, we want you to know that having questions is okay! They are even welcome. Our hope is that our church would be a safe place to explore your questions and struggles with faith. Bring them with you into Church School, small groups, and worship but please come. For a life of questions – without also a life of faith – can feel empty. For more information about FBC Bloomington, please see DNA Of FBC.
Knowing the history of how the American Baptist Church came to be can give important context as to why we believe the things we do. How are we different or similar to other churches and belief systems? How did we arrive at these ideas and doctrines, and how do they match up with what the Bible says? Knowing these answers about our beliefs can help you better assess whether you are interested in becoming a covenant member at First Baptist Church. Or, if you are already a member, these lunches can help deepen and enrich your understanding of our theology and church history.
If you are new to our Baptist church, you might be wondering where or how you can fit in to our community. These lunches offer a perfect opportunity to find out more. We want to help you get involved in things that match your interests. When we have the chance to sit down over lunch together, we will be able to connect you to the activities and people that match your passions.
