 River Valley Ranch, a Christian camp in Carroll County, will begin hosting  youth conferences beginning in September 2017.  If you are a middle school student (grades 6-8) and are intrested in attending the middle school conference scheduled for September 2017 please RSVP to Cathy ASAP! 

It's not too early to start thinking about volunteering for VBS here at FBC Crofton!  The dates are Sunday, August 13 through Thursday, August 18, 5:30-8:00 PM each day.  We will have more information soon!

There will be NO  Ignite worship service this Sunday, July 2nd.   

You're invited to join the church as a whole for one worship service at 11am and then a "Firecracker" Picnic at noon. 


Hot Dogs and toppings will be provided.  You bring a large salad, side, or dessert.  You may want to bring a lawn chair or blanket for sitting outside in the pavilion while you eat. Sign up in the common or in the church lobby.


Join us Saturday, July 15th for a day trip to Harpers Ferry, WV for an adventure in white water rafting.  The cost will be determined by the number of people in the group.  Because Ignite needs to make reservations, determine cost, and provide adequate transportation we ask that you please RSVP before Sunday, July 2nd!    


On Saturday, September 23 2017 from 12:00pm to 7:30pm, Ignite will join other area teens at the closest location (TBA) for a one day confernce to bring Christ to their communities through service and gospel conversations, and spark a movement within youth ministry and within the Church at large.  THIS CONFERENCE IS FREE to all middle school AND high school students, but we do need to know if you are interested for registration purposes.  Please RSVP no later than Sunday, July 23rd!

We care about what you're thinking and would like to offer the opportunity for you to share those thoughts!     


As disciples of Christ we are called to be intercessors for one another.  Add a sticky note to the class Prayer Board so we can pray together and/or grab a sticky note and commit to personally pray for that person/thing throughout the week.  This allows us to actively trust God with our petitions and watch Him as He works to unfold His plans in our lives and the lives of others.


Ignite  students have decided to connect with a child through Compassion International.  (Compassion International is a Christian child sponsorship organization dedicated to the long-term development of children living in poverty around the world.  For more information go to www.compassion.com). 
Ignite  will collect free-will offerings each Sunday during our worship time together.  This is not mandatory, but from the heart of each student.  This offering will provide the monthly $38.00 cost to sponsor our assigned child and to help others we can reach out to locally.

Mission:
To lead students into a growing and lasting relationship with Jesus Christ.

Vision:
All students will develop a faith of their own that stays strong through their coming journey.

Why:
• We believe that a personal relationship with Jesus is the only way by which man can be saved
• Developing personal faith will strengthen students for current and future trials
• Developing personal faith will move students to impact and influence the world around them

Strategy:
• Connect the world of students to the world view of Jesus
• Provide relevant, topical talks for students to chew on
• Create extraordinary small group environments led by exceptional leaders, allowing for life-giving discussions that lead to the self discovery of God’s truth and wisdom
• Cultivate deep relationships with students, allowing them to know they are loved and cared for.
• Develop outreach opportunities for students through local and nationwide missions, allowing them to grow in responsibility and leadership

Value Statements:
We are a community based on faith, love, unity, honesty, trust, and open communication.
We want to partner with parents and set the ball on a tee for them. Parents are the primary spiritual guides for the student.

Thank you for taking an interest in further understanding the heartbeat of our ministry. We desire that students grow a faith that will serve as an anchor of stability as they move into adulthood. Furthermore, we desire to lead students into a secure identity of who they are in Christ. We believe that people ultimately live out of who they are, not what they are. Therefore, we strive to impress upon the students that God unconditionally loves them. And it is through that love that we are to love others.
