Jesus calls us to Celebrate our life in him through participating in God’s mission and being TRANSFORMED by God and TRANSFORMING the world through Jesus. One way to participate at FBC is by serving with one of our mission partners each month.

The options listed below for sign-up are regularly recurring commitments to wonderful, Jesus-centered ministries that provide hope by meeting real needs in the greater Athens area. Join us as we celebrate, participate, & are transformed through God.
