Thanks for visiting us today!

Fellowship Bible Church (FBC) is the friendliest small church in Venice. We are excited that you are checking us out to see what we’re all about. FBC is here for you. We are not just a church; we are a family of believers coming together to declare the glory of the Lord, and to celebrate Jesus as King. We study the Word through practical Bible teaching, practice what we learn, and in the process grow together. May God richly bless you! May the Lord bless you and keep you! We hope to see you soon!

As of March 1, 2021
   Regarding church services: 
       
 
   WE WILL BE CONSTANTLY MONITORING THE CDC UPDATES. 
 
   We reopened our church approximately one year ago (August 2020) and this is what it looks like:
 
  1. We will have our Praise & Worship time at 9:00am, our main worship service at 10:00 and then our Bible study at 11:15.
  2. We DO NOT require that face masks be worn except if the person attending our services feels more comfortable doing so.
  3. Face masks will be provided at the door for anyone that desires to wear one.
  4. We will have weekly bulletins available. Our information display table will also have a few items available.
 5. Obviously, we would kindly ask that anyone with any COVID symptoms please not attend.
 6. We will continue to have the service streamed live to my FaceBook page (John Meyer Venice, FL) for any one unable to attend or uncomfortable with gathering at this time. The service will also be provided here on this website under the MEDIA tab above.
7. We purchased 2 top notch air purifiers a year ago that will run all night on Saturday to purify the air in the building before we enter on Sunday morning.  
 
 
Tuesday night small group will be meeting live at the church and live on ZOOM. We will have our meal time at 6:30 and then Bible Study at 7pm. If you are on our church email list, you will get a weekly invitation from me to join the ZOOM meeting on Tuesday evenings. Just click on the link and you should be good to go. Please be sure that your computer speaker/volume is ON. In the bottom left hand corner of the ZOOM screen there is an icon of a microphone. If you want to be muted (we can’t hear what is happening at your location), turn that mic OFF.
 We all need the personal contact; Fellowship Bible is a loving and caring family and I know we’re missing each other.
 
Our Saturday morning men’s small group is currently meeting at Perkin’s Restaurant every Saturday morning at 7am. We meet from 7-8 am every Saturday. We are knee-deep in Tony Dungy’s study, “Quiet Strength”.
 
Our services are as follows: 
Sunday morning @ 9:00 am we have a 45 minute time of praise and worship music for our members and friends to come in and listen and be blessed.
Sunday mornings @ 10:00 am is our weekly worship service. This includes prayer time, announcements, great singing of hymns and praise music. Pastor Meyer then shares from a challenge from the Word of God that all in attendance can “take with them” for the week ahead. We major on using the Bible to apply eternal truths to our everyday lives. We equip believers to go out and reach our world for Christ. We have a wonderful family-friendly atmosphere. There is genuine love for each other. We consider ourselves to be hospital where souls are healed, not a country club where everyone feels warm and fuzzy and happy about themselves.
Sunday mornings @ 11:15 am  At this point, we gather back for a Bible study that walks through a book of the Bible or a current topic of interest for believers. We are currently enjoying Mark Batterson’s study “All In”.
Tuesday night Small Group Bible Study  See above note regarding Tuesday nights.
Women’s Book Club  IS CURRENTLY NOT MEETING UNTIL FURTHER NOTICE!  [meets once a month at different ladies’ homes for discuss the latest book they have read. They have read a variety of books that have challenged them to take part in some great challenging discussions. Check with Sue Meyer about the exact dates and locations-and what book they are currently reading.]
Saturday morning men’s small group This incredible group of men has been meeting for the past 15 years every Saturday morning. So, bright and early, at 7:00 am we gather in the back dining room of Perkin’s Restaurant in  Venice (Center Rd.) and chat and laugh and eat and study a relevant topic for our men.
