We are excited to send our students on another trip they will never forget to Global Youth Camp in Chatsworth, GA. This trip gets them out of the hustle and bustle of this world and let them grow in their faith with minimal distractions! God always does some pretty awesome things during this time away and we look forward to this next adventure with our students!

Depart from FaithBCM Mon., 7/23 @ 6:00am
Arrive at Global Camp Mon., 7/23 @ 3:15pm

Arrive at FaithBCM Fri., 7/27 @ 8:30pm

Packing Announcement:

Please keep all packed items in one medium-size suitcase per attendant. We have loaded vehicles this year. Also, how it goes to camp is how it comes home. There will not be space for extra "laundry" bags. It must all go back into the packed bag it came in on. Thank you for your assistance in this matter.

Communication:

While up on the mountain, cell signal is sparse at best and the camp does not provide internet access to attendees. Follow our Fusion Students Facebook page and/or Parent Partners group for updates for regular updates as we are able.

If you have an emergency and absolutely need to get ahold of your student at a certain time, the camp phone number is 1 (877) 251-1800.

Easter at Faith Baptist Mandarin

Looking for a place to worship this Easter? We invite your family to join our family for an Easter Celebration on Sunday, April 1, from 10:45am-12:00pm.

We promise your family will find a friendly environment, encouraging and uplifting music, and a practical message about Jesus.

Childcare and children's ministry will be provided.


New Series Kicks Off

lies-we-believe-title.jpg

Pastor Andy will kick off his new series, Lies We Believe, on Easter Sunday, so you'll be here right at the start of what will prove to be a powerful and practical message series!

What if what you believed was not true; would you want to know it?  Unfortunately, the answer to that question may not be so obvious.  Strangely, some people today are perfectly content to continue believing a lie.  Eventually, these lies impact their lives in ways they could never imagine. This series will examine five prevalent lies and discover how that only the truth can set us free.


Looking for fun activities to do with the family?

Look no further than our Community Egg Hunt on Saturday, March 31, from 2:30-3:30pm at Walter Jones Historical Park or visit the Mandarin Arts Festival on Saturday from 10am-4pm and Sunday (after service of course from 12:00pm-4:00pm). Click the images below for more details.

[Fusion] Escape Room Activity

REGISTRATION CLOSED.

Can you escape? You’re locked in a room and debriefed with a mission. You have 60 minutes to escape and there is only one way out - find clues, solve puzzles, and crack codes before your time runs out. Can you do it? Only one thing is for certain, you'll have fun trying.

Meet us at the church promptly at 3:15pm and we will carpool together to Mastermind Escape Games off Philips Highway. The carpool will depart no later than 3:30.

Our return time will be around 6:15pm. We will stop by a fast food restaurant with a dollar menu on the way home, so a few extra bucks for food or a drink won't hurt either.

For more information, connect with Pastor Will at connect@faithbcm.org or call the church office at 904.262.6944.

Faith Impact Training Night

Every week the Lord sends guests to our morning worship service. It’s one thing when we don't go out, it’s a whole ‘nother level thing when God brings them to our doorstep.

Each person that visits Faith comes for various reasons. Yet the impact of the guest experience must not be limited to only those at the Welcome Center.

We as members have the awesome responsibility to welcome and minister every guest. Join us for this special training evening as we seek to identify what things will make a difference to those that God brings to our church for us to influence.

Come enjoy fellowship, refreshments, and giveaways. Childcare will be provided.
