Stay in Touch

We have many different ways to stay in touch with each other.

At the bottom of each page of this website you will find links to our social media accounts.

Be sure to use those links to connect with us on your favorite platforms.

Here are some other very important ways for you to stay in touch:

1. Be sure that you have registered to receive our text messages. We send last minute reminders about upcoming events or information about urgent needs. We rarely send more than one text per week. To sign up, just text the word "Connect" (without quotation marks) to 254-221-8642.

2. Every few weeks we send an e-newsletter called "The Grapevine." Make sure we have your email address so we can keep you in the loop. When your friends asked how you knew about something, you can tell them, "I heard it on the Grapevine!" You can get your contact information to us by using this form. You don't have to answer all the questions on the form, but in order to send you the newsletter, we do need at least your name and email address. Then be sure you check "Yes" on the question toward the about about the email newsletter.

3. The church has a Facebook page, an Instagram account, and a Twitter account. You can also follow Bro. John on Twitter or at his blog, "A View From the Vine."

Get Connected

You are always welcome to worship with us on Sundays, but to really get the FBC West experience, you want to get connected with the church family. We want you to find you place and join us as we learn and grow and serve together!

There a lot of ways for you to that. Here are just a few:

Sunday Morning Bible Study: We have a group for everyone, from nursery on up. Bible study starts at 9:00 a.m. each Sunday.

Children's Ministry: Our Children's Ministry includes exciting Sunday morning Bible Study, AWANA on Wednesday evenings, Vacation Bible School, summer camp, a Father/Daughter Banquet, a Mother/Son Banquet, a loving and safe nursery, and special events like our annual "Fall Family Fun Night". Our church places a high priority on family, and that begins with our Children's Ministry. For more information, email our Children's Minister, Jennifer Buchanan here.

Student Ministry: Our student ministry includes Bible study each Sunday at 9:00 a.m. and powerful worship each Wednesday at 6:50. We also have small groups, special events, trips, missions projects, retreats, camps, a great fellowship.

Women's Ministry: Our women meet each Tuesday for Bible study at 6:30 p.m. They also enjoy a Christmas brunch, retreats, special events and trips.

Men's Ministry: Our men meet each Tuesday for Bible study at 6:30 p.m. They also enjoy retreats, special trips, and missions projects

Life Groups: Life Groups are small group Bible studies that meet at various times throughout the week. This is a time to learn together and share life experiences. Life groups are a great way to connect with other believers for encouragement and strength as you continue to grow in Christ. We encourage all members to join a life group. Contact Todd Ewing for information about our life groups and meeting locations.

Prayer Ministries: We have a variety of way that you can be involved in our prayer ministries. 1) The adult Bible study on Wednesday nights always includes a time to share prayer concerns and pray for one another. 2) You can sign up to receive text messages about urgent prayer needs. 3) You can also sign up to receive a phone call when there are urgent prayer needs. In order to sign up for the text messages or the phone calls, contact Susan in the church office at 254-826-5165 or email her here.
