Children’s

Church

Children's Ministry
Children’s church is open to children K-5 following directly after musical worship, on Sunday mornings. The purpose of Children’s Church is to teach the children about who Christ truly is and how everything in the bible points to the Cross (The Gospel). Every Sunday morning the children will have a lesson to learn about the bible, a craft that corresponds to message, a snack, and usually some sort of activity, if time allows.

Behold, children are a gift of the Lord, The fruit of the womb is a reward. Like arrows in the hand of a warrior, So are the children of one’s youth. Psalm 127:3-4

Men’s D-Group

Ministry

Men's D-Group

Teaching Men to be Satisfied in Christ”

Purpose: At FBC Thibodaux, our men’s discipleship ministry exists to follow Jesus’ command in Matthew 28:18-20 to “make disciples” that was faithfully carried out by Paul in 2 Timothy 2:2 by charging Timothy in the way of discipleship. Discipleship has been a way of life for God’s people from the beginning and will continue with us and others until Jesus returns.
FBC Thibodaux has a “Discipleship Pathway” beginning with the expository preaching of God’s word in the pulpit during corporate worship, to more intimate inductive study and discussion led by our gifted teachers in small groups such as Sunday School, to our most intimate form of discipleship that we call D-groups (discipleship groups).
In men’s D-groups, trained men meet with 1-4 other men roughly every other week for 12-18 months to thoroughly study the gospel, walk through key foundational doctrines, and impart biblical study methods of interpretation so that men may be able to fully nourish on God’s word, effectively lead their families, plug into the local church where they are gifted and called, and be able to replicate the process with other faithful men. We build intimate relationships and accountability with each other inside and outside of group meetings by living life together. This intimate form of discipleship, as seen with Jesus, Peter, James and John, has accelerated the spiritual growth and service of our group leaders, and we desire the same for all other men in our fellowship.
