Missions Ministry

The Mission Ministry team implements support of missionary personnel, societies, schools and institutions as formally supported by the church.  Their mandate is to stimulate interest for missionary service and projects. This is done through planned missionary programs to heighten awareness and bring about commitment to support missions and to go as missionaries. The obligation of the Missions Ministry Team is to pray for and promote prayer among the church for the missionaries we support whether career, short-term or summer workers.

Evangelism/Discipleship

The purpose of the evangelism ministry is to bring people into a personal and saving relationship with Jesus Christ.  The ministry does that by coordinating with the pastors and leadership team to plan and implement outreach programs.  Seeks to provide care for all members of the congregation (including inactive members) and non-members. We pursue these ends by engaging with believers to promote growth in faith and numbers following the concept of spiritual multiplication.  The multiplication concept is one in which a believer multiplies themselves by winning, building and sending others.
 
Periodically, an "evangelism” series of classes is offered, providing believers the tools, practice, and fostering confidence to tell others about Jesus. 
“Successful witness” is simply taking the initiative to share the Gospel in the power of the Holy Spirit and leaving the results to God.
Our discipleship program within the church fosters spiritual growth seeking guide believers towards maturity in one’s relationship with Jesus, shaping attitudes, focus, and behavior. Going beyond church attendance to actively mentor and disciple others.

Women's Ministry

The mission of the Women's Ministry

To honor and glorify God by the teaching of His Word, encouraging women in their daily walk with God in order to make and grow fully devoted followers of Jesus Christ through the power of the Holy Spirit.

What does this mean, you might ask? 

Here at FBC we want to give you the opportunity to find the treasure of the LOVE, GRACE, AND STRENGTH of God. Through Bible classes, in-house conferences and retreats, you can find a refreshing time of renewal and fellowship in women focused activities and events. 

And from this abundance of God’s blessing, we learn to give back to others that helping hand of strength to inspire, uplifting them in their time of need through prayer and friendship.

Spanish Ministry

We recognize a God-given opportunity to share the gospel with Spanish-speaking attendees of our church and the city of Peekskill. Our local community can be transformed if they know Jesus, just like any other community. This is the mission and focus of the “Spanish Ministry." 

We currently have a Spanish-speaking Sunday school session that meets in class off the "fellowship" hall at 9:30 a.m. We also provide a "live" translation of the main service period, beginning at 10:45 a.m. Spanish speakers can use their own mobile devices to listen to the audio translation.

The "Spanish Ministry" is also directly engaged in our weekly "Food Pantry" and monthly "Fresh Market" events.  Both activities are direct outreach engagements with our community. 

We are praying and seeking God's will and guidance because there is great potential for this ministry to expand and spread God's kingdom, which would bring Him glory.
