The goal of all of our ministries at FBC Gallatin is to glorify God and to build up the church (Ephesians 4). We are committed to expository preaching, intentional discipleship, and the Great Commission.
>> Bible Studies
Come connect to us as we study the Word of God together. We offer Bible Studies for all age groups Sunday mornings starting at 9:30 a.m. and other Bible Studies meet throughout the week as well.
>> Worship Services
We assemble together as a local body of believers to offer our praise to God, pray together, testify to what the Lord is doing in our lives, and proclaim the truths of God's Word every Sunday at 10:40 a.m. and at 6 p.m. We welcome you to join us in the Spirit as we worship the Lord. Jesus said, "But the hour is coming, and is now here, when the true worshipers will worship the Father in spirit and truth, for the Father is seeking such people to worship Him. God is spirit, and those who worship Him must worship in spirit and truth." (John 4:23-24)
We are a praying church. 1 Thessalonians 5:17 says, "Pray without ceasing." We pray for each other in our Bible Studies, services, and other ministries of the church, and we have a prayer chain as well for immediate needs. We also pray together corporately during our Sunday evening services.
>> Children's Ministry
During months while school is in session, we hope to encourage the spiritual life of children through Pioneer Clubs where the Bible is taught and memorized, songs are sung, games are played, and a meal is shared together. We also have Sunday school classes available for all ages before service and a class for our littlest one's during the service (kindergarten and younger) though all ages of children are welcome to stay with their parents during the worship service as well.
>> REACH Youth Ministry
As a ministry, we exist to see the students of Gallatin see Him. Outreach events, mission-minded activities, Bible studies and more are involved with this ministry targeting students in grades 7-12. Youth ministry is led by Bro. Wood Marshall., assisted by his wife, Ashley. Scheduled meetings occur each Wednesday from 5:30-7:30 p.m. and Sunday mornings 9:30-10:30 a.m.
