SINGLE ADULT MINISTRY - A large part of our congregation is made up of single adults, and we would like to design opportunities for ministry, fellowship, and community for this group. Sometimes this ministry team will minister in simple encouragement to one who may feel lonely. The care team will also give opportunity for the singles to also minister. themselves.
HEALTH NEEDS - At times, we have church members suffering physically and they may need help at home, help with transportation, or even a liaison between the church and their ongoing condition. This team will seek to provide for those needs to the physically hurting.
GRIEVING - There are many times members will say goodbye to a dear family member or friend and need encouragement. This team will contact the grieving family, pray with them, and relate prayer needs to the church, and inquire into other needs. Grief Share will be led by this group, as well as other encouragements as fitting for the family.
HOMEBOUND - This team will bring encouragement to our homebound members with regular correspondence, acts of kindness, and even a visit when possible letting our homebound members know they have not been forgotten. The team will relay prayer needs and updates from those to whom they minister to the church.
Every 4th Saturday of the month is alive at FRFBC with our day of community service. At 9:30 a.m., we meet in the fellowship hall for snacks, prayer, and Scripture. We then break into three groups and go out to share the love of God with downtown Blue Ridge, senior adults, and single parents in our community from 10:00 a.m. to noon.
ADULT WORSHIP CHOIR - No audition required, just a heart to participate in and lead in worship through music. Rehearsal participation is necessary. Join us at rehearsal each Wednesday evening at 7:15 and each Sunday morning as announced in the Wednesday rehearsal.
PRAISE TEAM - As a singer on the praise team, participation in the Worship Choir is mandatory. Once participation in the Worship Choir begins, then the director can discuss with you the options for you on the Praise Team. Individuals must be willing to learn music on their own and be ready for their assigned services. Extra rehearsal each Sunday morning prior to worship is mandatory.
PRAISE BAND - For instrumentalists, a private meeting with the Music Minister is required to obtain your skill level and best fit within our group. Please bring your instrument and be willing to demonstrate your proficiency with the instrument. All instruments are welcome. A minimum of at least two years of high school band and /or private instruction is required.
AUDIO/VISUAL - BRFBC has an audio/video team of two techs working each week to ensure good sound quality for our congregational worship and good video quality for the congregational projection screens and for the online live streaming services that we offer. Additionally, the AV team handles any lighting needs and records the sermons weekly for our sermon podcast and sermon archives. The AV team is vital to the music, worship, and online ministries of our church, and we welcome experienced or interested new team members.
