In 2023, we are adopting the word “conspire” as a focal point for our church. Taken from the Latin conspirare, this word literally means “to breathe together.” Building on the theme of “inspire” from 2022, we want to ask: “What does it mean for us to seek the Holy Spirit TOGETHER as a church? What does it mean to be filled with the Spirit TOGETHER?” Our hope is the we might “conspire” TOGETHER for the kingdom of God — that we might engage in a conspiracy of hospitality, worship, discipleship, service and generosity. If you are seeking to stay connected to our community at FBC Griffin, then we want to conspire with you to point others toward Jesus Christ and His grace. This post describes a few of the methods we use to keep you informed about our community.
What is the E-Vision?
The E-Vision is an electronic newsletter that features church and ministry-specific activities at the church. We spotlight service or projects in our surrounding community where our ministries get involved. You may also find highlights from recent events featured.
What is the The Page?
The Page is a single piece of paper containing a condensed version of the E-Vision. You may pick up a copy of The Page at the church, or you may request that it be mailed to you weekly.
What is Church Community Builder?
If you have been at FBC very long, you may have heard someone say, “You can look that up in CCB.” This acronym stands for Church Community Builder, and it is the database we use at the church to stay connected with one another. Members, participants, and even guests who have filled out a visitor card can gain access to a CCB account. (Note that account types vary based on your level of involvement at the church.) If you are new to the church or to CCB, we invite you to give us a call at the church office (770-227-5517) or send us an email and ask for a quick tutorial.
If you are a leader of a class, group, team, or committee at the church, and you would like a few pointers on using CCB to communicate with your team, we encourage you to READ MORE on our tips post.
What is the FBCGRIFFIN app?
We have two apps available, but only the FBCGRIFFIN app keeps you posted on upcoming events. This app is available through your App Store by searching “FBCGRIFFIN”. For more information on using the app,
What is the LEAD app?
The second app we have is a tool for leaders of groups (Sunday school classes, Wednesday night small groups, teams, committees, and related groups connected to our ministries). The LEAD app streamlines communication efforts and searches for leaders. News and activities are not posted in the LEAD app, so leaders are encouraged to stay up-to-date on activities through one of our other channels of communication.
