Canoe Trip!!

As you all have heard for a few weeks, we are going canoeing on June 3rd.  We will meet at the church at 8:00 am and drive to Cave Country Canoes in Milltown, IN (its an 1:20 minute from the church).  We will get on the river about 11:00, go a ways down, park at a beach for lunch, and then finish the trip.  The canoe trip will take 3-5 hours so we should be back at the church by 5:30.

A canoe is $54 for two people, a kayak is $38 for one person, and if you have your own canoe or kayak it costs $25 for them to haul it for you.  The price will be a little lower if we have a great turn-out.  There are a few additional add-ons if your interested: seat cushions ($3), seat backs ($5), and cooler floats ($15). Life jackets are included in the price if your renting a canoe or kayak. Please have a check made out to the church for the amount for you and your family.  

There are some things you will need to bring:

  1. As I said, we will stop at a beach for lunch so bring everything you will need, if possible in as water-tight of a container as possible.
  2. Any other snacks or drinks you may need.
  3. Sunscreen.
  4. Bug spray.
  5. Water shoes.
  6. Sunglasses and/or a hat.

We need to know if you are coming, and how many canoes, kayaks, etc you will need, by Wednesday, May 31st. Please let me know either by email ( or by text (812-455-6112).  Feel free to call if you have any questions.

Young Adult Small Group

Hey all!!!  One of the exciting things FBC has going on this summer is a young adult small group.  Our first meeting is this Wednesday, May 17, and will meet every Wednesday night until August 9.  Dinner is at 6:00 and then from 7:00-8:00 we will talk through the book of Galatians.  

We will be meeting at different houses throughout the summer so touch base with me where we are meeting.   This week we are meeting at 840 St. Giles Court.  Hope to see you there.

Members Meeting 3/19

Dear Family Bible Church Members,

We will have a Members Meeting next Sunday, March 19 immediately following our worship service. Our elders will be presenting Brent Griffin for your approval for our Associate Pastor position. Brent has served faithfully at Westwood Church for over 10 years in a variety of roles and our elders believe he is qualified and well-suited to serve as our new Associate Pastor. Please take the opportunity to introduce yourselves to Brent, his wife Brooke, and their two girls Emma and Lila at church in the coming weeks.

Also next Sunday (3/19), as our teaching series on the book of Esther is coming to a close, we will be holding a Purim celebration during our worship service. If you don’t know what that is, come and find out! Let me especially encourage you to bring your kids as we will need them to help us celebrate what God did to save his people (and by extension, all of us) at the time of Esther.

See you Sunday,

Pastor Colin

Christmas Party Details

The FBC Christmas party will be on Sunday, December 11.

Meet at the church building between 4:00 – 4:15pm. We will make our way as a group next door to North River Assisted Living where we will sing carols for the folks staying there. Afterward, we will return to the church for food, cookie decorating, and a white elephant gift exchange.

Lasagna, salad, and cookies for decorating (and eating!) will be provided.

Here is what you need to bring: drinks for your family and a wrapped item from home that you are willing to say goodbye to in the gift exchange.

Let’s enjoy a fun-filled evening together celebrating the birth of our Lord Jesus Christ. We hope to see you there!

Sunday School

Though it is Thanksgiving weekend, we will still have Sunday school tomorrow (11/27). We’ll take a few weeks break from Sunday school around Christmastime. Look for those dates to be announced soon.
