Here at FBC we seek to be a source of light and peace for our entire community. We look to walk alongside those in need and to be a place where seekers can turn for answers in a loving, welcoming community of faith. We encourage all those who attend FBC to be active participants in our community, and many of our attendees are deeply engaged in programs that enhance the quality of life of their neighbors.
FBC has also been supportive of a number of community programs as a church body. We were engaged with the Take and Eat ministry that provides weekend meals to homebound seniors. We have provided teams for the local chapter of Habitat for Humanity and, for the past several Christmas seasons, we have been involved with the Angel Tree program in collaboration with Northern Berkshire Community Action.
We have provided funding to support scholarships to the Williamstown Youth Center and to address the very real issues of food security and hunger in our community through the Berkshire Food Project and the Williamstown Food Pantry. In addition, we have supported the operations of Louison House, a shelter for battered women in Adams. We open our doors weekly to support the work of recovery groups such as AA, Al Anon, and Adult Children of Alcoholics in our facility.
Begun in the Fall of 2012, FBC hosts a new chapter of the Celebrate Recovery Ministry. This Christ-centered recovery program is for anyone and everyone who struggles with anxiety, depression, anger, addictions and other issues that keep us from living the lives God has intended for us. This group meets every Wednesday evening from 6:30pm to 8:30pm. If you are interested in this, or any other ministry here at FBC, please Contact Us.
