One Daily Decision

In 2022 at FBC we desire to have the mind of Christ (1 Cor. 2:16 & Philippians 2:5) forming our prayer, thoughts, words, and actions. Make one daily decision to be formed by the Word of God in 2022. This 49-Week Challenge from Life.Church will take us through the entire Bible in one year. It focuses on Jesus and how the entire Scripture points to Him. We hope you join us to read and reflect on the Word daily. You can also follow this plan on the YouVersion App

Weekly Numbers





Please Answer This Question

There is an expression “the elephant in the room” meaning there is an obvious problem, situation or topic people do not want to talk about. This fall we will have a teaching series titled “Elephants” and we desire for you to help us name some of the “elephants in the room”. What topic(s) need to be explored from a Biblical perspective this fall at FBC? Maybe it is something happening in the world? Maybe it is a hard theological/doctrinal topic? Maybe it is something you have been wondering about but do not want to ask? In the box below please name some of the “elephants in the room” and help us form this series.

Men’s Event at Camp Barakel

October 21-23rd.
You typically leave town Friday afternoon and return home Sunday late afternoon/early evening.  The retreat is fully programmed, all you have to do is pay your $125 and get yourself up there.  Dorms to sleep in, meals and snacks provided, chapel times throughout the weekend, and all sorts of activities.  Riflery, archery, flag football, fishing, canoeing, Axe throwing, zip line, so on and so forth.  Or just relax with some friends by a fire….
To sign up, men can go here:, when they register, they can put in their housing request to room with others from Family Bible Church in Marshall.  Anyone wanting to go can get in contact with Josh Nye (, so he knows. He can make sure we are all set to room together, coordinate getting drivers and cars to get us up there, and of course answer any questions.
There isn’t a set deadline, typically in the past men’s retreats in the fall would fill up by the end of summer, so now is a good time to get people signed up.


Operation Christmas Child

Operation Christmas Child

Shoeboxes will be available Sunday, Oct 2 in the coffee bar area. They are due back to the church by Nov 6. Shipping is $10. These boxes share the gift of Jesus’ love and bring Christmas to children all over the world. Please contact Karen Saltzman with any

Middle & High School, Kids, Journey


Middle & High School Student Ministries


HIGH SCHOOL: High School meets Sunday evenings 6:30-8:30PM in the church sanctuary (come in west overhang entrance). This is an awesome time of games, worship, lesson, small group, and more. This Sunday we have our first ever Parent Youth Group! We’re inviting our parents to come experience youth group with their students as they check out what it’s all about! You get to be a student for the night. See you all Sunday at 6:30!


MIDDLE SCHOOL: Middle School meets Tuesday evenings 6:00-7:45PM in the sanctuary lobby at the church for a time of games, snacks, questions, lesson, and more. We had a blast at Back to School Bash last night, thank you to the Colemans for hosting!
We are currently on break from youth group for a few weeks to allow you to get into the rhythm of school. Then we’ll kick back off in September, currently scheduled for the 13th! Praying you have a great start to the new school year! 


(Infants – 5th Grade)

*Update: We are continuing our Summer Schedule through Sunday, September 11th. We will return to our traditional church programming on Sunday, September 18th.

Kindergarten through  5th Graders are invited to worship with the adults in the sanctuary, in their very own Kid’s Worship Zone (on the floor, in front of the stage)! Bible story, crafts and games to follow in the Youth Room with our Children’s Ministry staff. We hope you’ll join us in the 10 AM service!


Renovation Project Update:

As we are sure you’ve noticed, the Kid’s Wing has undergone some serious renovations lately! We are excited to see this transformation in process, and are so thankful for the many hands who’ve helped get us to this point.

There is still much work to be done before we can open classrooms up for Awana and Sundays in the fall. If you have an interest in helping, please email Caye and Emily and they can assit you in details for projects that need to be completed.


Awana is fast approaching!

We are gearing up for Awana and will soon be releasing dates and details for signing up your children! As always, we are seeking volunteers to cover all sorts of needs in this ministry. Serving in Kid’s Ministry is rewarding and blesses families both in our church and surrounding community. Sign up in the Kid’s Wing if you are willing to get involved!
