Come Learn the ABC’s of FBC

Are you new to FBC? Considering membership?

If you are interested in learning more about FBC Beverly, a new Inquirer's Class is forming for those new to FBC, interested in baptism, or considering becoming a member. These classes will be hosted by Minister Kent Harrop. FBC’s Inquiry Classes are a wonderful way to learn about the values that guide our life as a congregation, how to nurture a life of faith and what it means to be an American Baptist. We meet for approximately five sessions (1-1/2 hours each) at a mutually convenient time for participants in a relaxed setting. Not only are these sessions the best way to learn all about FBC Beverly but they’re a great way to meet others new to the church, ask questions, and share insights. Please email (kharrop@fbcbeverly.org) or speak with Kent if you are interested. The hope is to begin meeting in late September.
