Ministry of Recreation

We use recreation to complement, support and strengthen the ministries and organizations of our church, as we seek to share Jesus Christ with others. Reaching others for Christ by creating an environment that exists to provide quality sports, leisure activities, and other non-traditional means while emphasizing excellence, opportunities, and values. Enlarging our ministries' territories as we meet the needs of people spiritually, socially, emotionally, and physically. Challenging the family of FBC to grow through new experiences in fellowship and discipleship while using our time and our talent to serve others and our Lord.

The core mission of the Recreation Ministry is "To Serve and Reach Out."

First Riders are Christians and friends of Christians who ride motorcycles (sometimes follow in cars) in fellowship, who revel in God’s creation and who wish to praise him as we enjoy His gifts. We will be scheduling rides for the third Saturday of each month through October, 2014, weather permitting. Most rides will be in the range of 150 miles, and take up to five hours, not including time at lunch and for breaks. Please contact Carl Evans at 804 513-5130 if you have any questions.
