Where Can I Serve?

Jesus told us, his disciples, to make disciples of all nations. One of the most important values of Five Forks Baptist Church is our mission to the world. It begins in our own community, and spreads overseas to every nation. Five Forks members are involved in a variety of ministries from things as simple as washing the church vehicles, to preparing the church bulletins.

 

Kid’s World Children’s Ministry

Children are important at Five Forks Baptist Church. In fact, they are so important to us that we have taken a lot of time to evaluate the best way to teach and nurture them. Knowing that we can’t possibly teach kids all they need to know about God in one hour a week, we want to partner with parents to make sure that together kids are getting absolutely everything that we can offer.

Believing that what happens at home is more important than what happens at church we try to focus on a few things and do them with excellence. We offer children programs on Sunday mornings, Sunday evenings, and Wednesday evenings. From RA’s and GA’s to AWANA and Kid’s Choir to special summer programs, we have a place here for you.

Speaking of summer, it is awesome at Five Forks! Vacation Bible School is like nothing you will find anywhere else. Our friendly children’s ministry volunteers have an endless stream of creativity–and your child will have loads of fun!

 

Student Ministry

We are a group of students and leaders that  are seeking to live out the example of Jesus in our community. We want to show the world who Jesus really is and what the Kingdom of God looks like. We have found that serving everyone, loving everyone, and proclaiming the name of Jesus is how this needs to be done. Students 6th – 12th meet on Sunday nights at 6pm upstairs in the youth room. Wednesday nights 6th – 8th graders meet from 6:30pm – 8pm upstairs in the youth room.

 

FUSION Young Adult Ministry

Life can get complicated once you cross that nebulous threshold into adulthood. There are complicated decisions. Bigger stakes. Serious relationships. And a whole lot more decisions. FUSION, the young adult group of Five Forks Baptist Church provides a welcoming atmosphere for college and early-career aged young people.

 

Adult Ministries | WOMEN & MEN

No matter what stage of life we’re in, some things never change. We never stop learning, and we never stop depending on God and His Word. At Five Forks offer exciting opportunitites for men and women to become who God want them to be and utilize their gifts and talents in meeting the needs of others. From Bible studies to book clubs, or ladies night out to breakfast for the men, there is a place for you in our Adult Ministries.

 

Classic Adult Ministry | Over 50’s

Once you get past fifty, the fun has just begun. Whether retired, just plain tired, or active as ever, the over-50 group of Five Forks Baptist Church provides refreshment, ministry, and times of valuable interaction.

Worshiping Arts Ministry | MUSIC + WORSHIP

Worship is at the core of who we are created to be. When we offer praise to God we are fulfilling a grand design that helps us better understand why we’re here. Each week, we gather together to do just that through music, worship, and fellowship with one another.

We worship with our voices, our instruments and our hearts, singing praises to the Lord for His unfailing love and grace. From the choir loft, the orchestra pit and every single pew, our voices and instruments fill the sanctuary, honoring Him with every note!

 

Partners in Prayer | PRAYER MINISTRY

Prayer cannot be overestimated. Prayer moves the hand of God. Five Forks Baptist Church is a body of believers dependent upon prayer, and committed to God’s sovereignty. Each Sunday, during the morning service, a team of volunteers is praying for the ministry of the Word. Throughout the week, volunteers to our Partners in Prayer team, pray for their pastor, a list of church members, any special requests, and missionary prayer needs. Each Tuesday, the Prayer Partners come together for a special time of prayer for the needs of our church, community, nation, and world.

 
Stephen Ministry
Five Forks recently commissioned twelve members of the congregation who have spent fifty hours in training to become Stephen Ministers. What is a
Stephen Minister? It is a person trained to provide one-to-one, Christ-centered care to hurting people.

 

Community Outreach

Five Forks Baptist Church is thrilled to be part of the spread of God’s kingdom in our community and around the world. We offer many events and activities throughout the year geared to reaching our community with the message of Christ. Every month we take part in Prison Ministry, the Greenville Rescue Mission, and various other projects throghout the community. Likewise, small teams from our church have traveled to New Orleans, West Virginia, and Canada each year to assist in practical projects and evangelistic outreach.
