next steps

I’m ready for my next step!

We consider it an honor and a privilege to help you identify and take your next step here at Fellowship of Believers. In fact, we believe there’s a next step for every follower of Jesus, no matter if you’re a new believer or if you’ve been doing this for years. Either way, we’re thrilled you’re here!

What is my next step?

If you find yourself unsure of what your next step is, that’s okay! We would love to get in touch with you to help you identify what that next step might be.

grow groups

We believe spiritual growth happens best within community. That’s why we encourage everyone to get involved in a Grow Group! We have groups that are interest-based, Bible studies, book studies, prayer-focused and fellowship-focused groups.

No matter what season of life you’re in, there is a group for you.

Right Now Media is free resources for all our FOB family!

We are excited to share that our church now has access to an extensive, new video library called RightNow Media! It’s like the “Netflix of Video Bible Studies” and has a HUGE library of faith-based videos that you can access whenever and wherever you want—on your phone, iPad, computer, or at home on your TV.


FOB Kids

We believe children are a priority and we always aspire to have a strong, vibrant Children’s Ministry!  We go all out when it comes to children as we offer games, teaching, worship, small groups, and many great events each year.


Infant – Two Years childcare is available during the entire service. Nursery is located on the first floor in the west hall.

Three years – fifth grade

Kids will stay in service through worship, then they are invited to attend their age-specific class before the message.

All classrooms located upstairs. Children must be checked in by their parent or guardian.


Fortress Student Ministry

Middle – High School

Building students that are unshaken in their faith and unafraid to show it.

Today, students are faced with the greatest challenges this world has ever seen. By helping create a solid foundation, we believe, these students will be able to stand unshaken in their faith and be unafraid to show it.

Fortress meets Wednesday at 6:30p at the basketball court, then heads to the Upper Room for service from 7:00p to 8:30p.
