We believe that the best way to get connected and to grow in faith is to belong to a small group of people that are engaged in the mission of Jesus together. FBC Communities are an opportunity to build authentic, loving community through fellowship, prayer, study of the scriptures and service. FBC Communities are a great place to find community and grow in following Jesus in the everyday stuff of life.
Please check what group you are interested in attending and give us your name and the best way to contact you (email, phone). We will get back to you with more specific information.

We desire to be a resource of information on senior services available within Monmouth County plus providing care and assistance toward extending an independent lifestyle whether living at home or in a senior facility. We maintain contacts with all through regular planned social activities and with those unable to attend church due to physical or other limitations, through calls, card and visits.”
