Adult Bible Fellowship

Here at Founders Baptist, our Adult Bible Fellowship classes help us live out the truths of the Word. You will be encouraged in your walk with Christ through engaging studies and to be busy sharing your faith with others and in serving in this local church. Also, Adult Bible Fellowship is where you will meet with a smaller group of believers and develop close, intimate relationships. Each week you will be given the opportunity to share prayer requests and minister to one another. You will have many opportunities to rejoice with those who rejoice, and weep with those who weep. All of these things and more are a part of Adult Bible Fellowshihp each and every week.

Recognizing there are many different people that make up the body of Christ, all having different needs in their walk, we have specific and general classes available. But either way, we are confident that at Founders you can find an Adult Bible Fellowship that will provide friends to walk the Christian life with and give you with opportunity to exercise your unique gifts for service to the body of Christ. Our classes are open, inviting, and excited to welcome new people at any time. Come and join us as we walk together with Christ and love one another!

Our Bible Fellowship classes begin at 9am every Sunday, followed by our time of corporate worship at 10:30.

Kids

Role of Founder's Kids Ministry

At Founders, we believe children are a great blessing from the Lord and we desire to partner with and equip parents and families to take the lead in the spiritual formation of their children. During their time with us in the children’s ministry, we will share the redemptive story of God throughout the Old and New Testament in a safe and loving environment.  All of our workers have completed a background check and each child is checked in and out of the Children’s Building.


Role of Parents and Families

Scripture is clear that parents have been given the joy and responsibility of raising their children in a gospel-centered home. Parents are the primary voice and point of influence in a child’s life.

  • Deuteronomy 4:9
  • Deuteronomy 6:4-9
  • Psalm 78:1-7
  • Proverbs 22:6
  • Ephesians 6:4
  • 1 Thessalonians 2:11-12

Throughout the year, we will encourage you in your parenting journey with book, article, and blog recommendations as well as parenting classes and other times of equipping and teaching.

Children’s Sunday School: Children’s Building at 9:00am

Generations of Grace curriculum is biblically driven, God-centered, Christ exalting, gospel saturated, and family focused. This curriculum is designed to magnify God by studying His character in the pages of Scripture. Over a three-year period, children will learn the narrative of God's redemptive plan and will also learn the foundational truths of scripture’s authority and sufficiency. Parents can expect an email each week with specific questions to discuss with their children over what they learned that morning.  For more information, contact CJ Malott (cjmalott@foundersbaptist.org)

Preschool Worship Hour: Children’s Building during our 10:30 worship time

Preschool Worship Hour continues to build on what the children learned during their Sunday School hour.  Fun games, creative crafts and other activities reinforce the Bible story and main idea. This hour is staffed by our VIP’s (Volunteers in Preschool) which consist of preschool parents and other loving adults who are members of our church.  They are a blessing to our preschoolers and their parents.  If you are interested in joining our VIP team, please email CJ or Victoria Strassner (victoria.strassner@foundersbaptist.org)

AWANA (aka Family Fun Night): Thursday Nights from 6:00-8:00pm

AWANA helps churches and parents work together to develop spiritually strong children who faithfully follow Christ. At 6:00 during the school year, families have the opportunity to bring their own dinner and eat and fellowship with other families and AWANA leaders in the Rec Center.  At 6:30, children meet with their age-appropriate class and leader to begin learning through games, music, scripture memory and Bible lessons. For more information, contact Michael Harvey at michael.harvey.yep@gmail.com

Schedule:

6:00-6:30 - Bring your own dinner and eat in the Rec Center

6:30-6:45 - Family Fun Time (games and activities)

7:15-7:45 - Small Group Huddles (various rooms)

Weekday Early Education (W.E.E.) Program: Tuesdays & Thursdays

W.E.E. is a biblically based preschool for children ages 1 to 4.  Through WEE Learn curriculum and well trained, loving teachers, children will learn not only academic skills but also skills that will prepare them for excellence in the classroom or life in general, such as:  cooperation, showing kindness, being sympathetic, learning to listen and be still, etc.  The preschool feeds directly into Founders Christian School but can also benefit parents who wish to homeschool or send their children to public school later. For more information, contact Becky Glass (becky.glass@foundersbaptist.org)

Youth

Multiply Student Ministry exists to glorify God by coming alongside the families of Founders Baptist in the shepherding of their children. We firmly believe that the only means by which hearts can be challenged and changed is through the Word of God, and therefore everything we do as a ministry centers around the faithful teaching and applying of scriptural truth to the lives of the students. We do this through larger group times of teaching, splitting up into small groups, and many other opportunities for discipleship and counseling. Our prayer is that each student would be transformed by the grace of God through Christ, and equipped to faithfully serve in all aspects of biblical ministry.

We meet twice a week:

Sunday Morning: 
We begin our Sunday morning sessions together in the REC Center at 9am.
Please see the handout maps (located in foyers) for the current meeting location.

Tuesday Evening
Thrive youth group: 6:30-8:30pm; We meet in the fellowship hall then play games and fellowship in the REC center following our study/discipleship.

Our special events give our students additional opportunities to share the gospel, serve the community, and enjoy fellowship with one another. Whether you already know Jesus Christ or not, we would love to have you join us at any of our meetings or events. You can find all the information about what we believe and the things we do by connecting with us on Facebook (Multiply Student Ministry) and Twitter (@multiplysm), or by visiting our church app (http://get.theapp.co/c220).

Please feel free to contact Aaron Wragg with any questions or concerns you may have regarding student ministry here at FBC.

Missions & Evangelism

Commissioned by God
Evangelism is the active preaching or presentation of the Gospel with the goal of bringing the hearer, through the power of the Holy Spirit, to faith in Jesus Christ, and thus into a right relationship with God. God has given all believers the privilege and responsibility of being ambassadors of Christ and ministers of reconciliation in the world (2 Cor 5:17-21). The missions effort at Founders Baptist Church seeks to further the spread of the good news of Jesus Christ to our own community and to the end of the earth (Acts 1:8).

Mission Field: Spring, TX
Here at Founders we are passionate about reaching this city with the saving message of God’s grace found in Jesus Christ alone. Our desire is to see all of Spring, TX bowing joyfully in worship before our great God. Therefore, we are committed to doing local outreach on a consistent basis. This includes everything from preaching in local jails and nursing homes to having one-on-one conversations on people’s doorsteps and at local events. Please join us from 9:00am to 11:30am in the Fellowship Hall on the last Saturday of each month as we strive together to fulfill the commission that our Lord has given us. Don’t let inexperience keep you away, we always make sure that those who are learning to evangelize are paired with experienced leaders, and we even hold quarterly training sessions to equip you to share this glorious gospel with others. For more information on what we do and how you can get involved, contact Rod Williams at disciple293@gmail.com.

To the End of the Earth
We are commanded to make disciples of all the peoples of the world (Matthew 28:19), and here at FBC we want to be obedient to that command. We long to see men and women worshiping the Lamb from every nation and all tribes and peoples and tongues (Revelation 7:9). Therefore, although we continue to support church plants in cities like San Antonio, Boston, Baltimore, and London, we are also vitally concerned about planting churches where Christ has not yet even been named (Romans 15:20). To that end we support a variety of missionaries and seminaries who are seeking to shine the light of Christ in dark lands, and, whenever possible, we seek to go to such places ourselves. In recent years, we were blessed to be able to proclaim the name of Jesus in some of the most remote villages in Belize and inner-city communities of Guatemala. Please join us in praying for God’s guidance as we consider the possibilities for mission trips in the future. For more information on the foreign missions effort here at Founders, contact David Strassner at missions@foundersbaptist.org.

Founders Media

“Walking in Grace” Media Ministry is dedicated to providing study materials, sermon audio and video, books and other resources to the Founders church family locally and the universal church nationally and internationally.

We currently provide a radio broadcast, “Walking In Grace,” which coverse the greater Houston area and can be heard on KKHT 100.7 FM, Monday through Friday at 6:30pm & 2:00am. Each radio broadcast is taken from the verse by verse expositional messaged preached by Pastor Caldwell at Founders Baptist in our Sunday am, pm and Wednesday pm services.

In addition, through sermonaudio.com, the Founders Media Ministry has been able to transmit a live webcast of all our weekly worship services, upload 1,579 sermons in audio format (including some in video), adding to this archive three new sermons per week. Our partnership with Sermon Audio has allowed us to reach a wider audience with the expository teaching of the word of God. As of December 2011 the Founders Media Ministry through Sermon Audio has been able to reach approximately 1,037,967 people in 69 countries.

Every week Founders transmits a live webcast of all our worship services. This can be a very powerful tool for any member of the church who, for one reason or another, is not able to attend a service but will like to take part of the worship and the teaching of the word of God from a remote location. This can also be a powerful evangelistic tool, as members can invite friends and love ones who do not know Christ to tune in to the webcast.

Spanish Translation: Currently we are providing our Spanish speaking members with radio devices that allows them to listen to a live simultaneous translation of our worship services. This devices can be checked out from the Founders Media Center in the foyer. From the website, we are also transmitting a live webcast of the service translated to Spanish.

Founders Media Ministry produces Pastor Caldwell’s Sermon Series in CD albums. These packages can be a great tool for your personal grow and evangelism. They make excellent gift ideas, giving you the opportunity to reach your friends and love ones with the word of God. These sermon series albums can be purchased at the Media Center as well as online.

Women of Founders

We are committed to helping the women of Founders Baptist Church grow in knowing, loving, and serving the Lord, working together as we grow in Christ-likeness, by His grace.

Our ministries focus on the Word of God, discipleship, and practical service. We invite all women of Founders to be involved as they are able, and our earnest prayer is that God will use these ministries for His glory and for our good.

Our regular activities include the following:

WOMEN’S BIBLE STUDIES

Women’s Bible studies are held during the fall and spring at the church. Ladies can choose between Tuesday evenings and Wednesday mornings. Childcare is available on Wednesday mornings. Occasionally we offer a summer book study on a topic such as parenting.

TITUS 2 MENTORING

Mentors are trained each fall and younger women attend a brunch in January to be matched with mentors for the upcoming year. Mentors are typically paired with one or two younger women, and meet at least monthly to build relationships and to train younger women in Biblical womanhood, basic homemaking, and other practical helps.

PRAYER

Ladies meet before our evening service to pray together for the ministries and leaders in our church. All women are welcome to participate on Sunday evenings at 6 pm in room 106 of the Education Building.

SEMINARY WIVES INSTITUTE

The Seminary Wives Institute is a certificate program providing biblical training, both theologically and practically, for wives of men enrolled in The Expositors Seminary.  Classes are also open to all women at Founders.  For information, email swi@foundersbaptist.org.


SERVICE PROJECTS

Each year, we will attempt to join together in a service project to help an organization such as Freedom Place, a Christ-centered care and recovery center for underage female victims of child sex trafficking, or CareNet Pregnancy Center.

CHRISTMAS FELLOWSHIP

The women of Founders will typically gather together during December for a special opportunity to reflect on the birth of our Savior with dinner and a guest speaker.

MEALS MINISTRY

The women of Founders are glad to provide meals as needed for mothers of new babies, those with health concerns, and elderly members of our body.

HOSPITALITY MINISTRY

The hospitality ministry provides opportunities for connecting with other women and for serving the body at Founders, such as appreciation/recognition gatherings.

SPECIAL EVENTS

Periodically, we have a speaker or panel discuss how the Bible addresses a particular topic, such as biblical womanhood or prayer.

Feel free to contact us at womenoffounders@gmail.com for more information or the email address of any of the point people for our ministries.

Biblical Counseling

Biblical Counseling/Discipleship is the Spirit-empowered process of one Christian coming along side another with words of encouragement, admonition, comfort and help, drawn from scripture and presented in the context of relationship towards God and man (full of grace and truth, John 1:14).

The goal of this counseling is that the “brother” or “sister” in need of spiritual counsel (dealing with a sin or trial) would grow in his understanding of how the gospel of the Lord Jesus Christ speaks to every area of his new life in Christ, and by God’s grace, in grateful obedience in every circumstance to the building up of the church, the evangelization of the lost and all for the glory of God.

At Founders, we value Jesus Christ and teach that the intent of all doctrine in the Bible is to know and be like him. But doctrine has no real benefit without investing it and applying it to our lives. And this is where Biblical Counseling comes in. It is the discipline of practical theology, that is, moving from the theological principles of God’s Word to the practical outworking of those principles in the life of the believer.

So, we offer one-on-one counseling and discipleship opportunities through this ministry with the goal of people understanding the full gospel of Jesus Christ and having that transform their lives one day at a time.

If you are in need of counseling—be it marital, personal, relational, etc.‚—please contact Mark White, Senior Associate Minister, at mark.white@foundersbaptist.org, or 281-350-1616.
