Braving the Rain for Jesus!

Braving the rain is a commitment to the church, we manifest in living our daily lives even though weather or other circumstances want to prevent us from attending on a given Sunday or a Wednesday.All those umbrellas stacked up against the wall and on the window sill are now there for a reason: they love the family that God has given them.

Braving the rain is a facicious way of saying that we sacrifice for Him. Goofy or no, the phase exemplifys our example to others as we go into the church, no matter the difficulty, as well as the example we give after we go out into the community to share the message we've learned.

"Me and My Umbrella"...........Have a great day serving Jesus Christ............M

Sunday School

Sunday School is the foundational strategy in our church for leading people to faith in the Lord Jesus Christ, and for building on-mission Christians through open Bible study groups that engage people in evangelism, discipleship, ministry, fellowship and worship.

Here at FBC Columbia we have age-graded classes for everyone. We can find a place for you, if you need to find classes just ask one of our greeters as you come into our buildings. Our teachers prepare great lesions each week that are Biblical based. These classes offer times of fellowship other than Sunday mornings. I hope that you will look to join us this Sunday for Bible study at 9:45 am. Below is a list of our departments, leaders and teachers.
