Welcome to Fellowship Baptist Association!

     Fellowship Baptist Association is a network of Southern Baptist Convention and Missouri Baptist Convention churches committed to work together in an effort to follow the Great Commandment and fulfill the Great Commission.   Our churches are primarily located in Benton, Hickory, and St. Clair counties in the great state of Missouri.....and we hope you'll consider making one of them your church home!!

    A seminary professor once asked a question of some international students, "What do you understand the term 'Fellowship' to mean?"  There was a moment of silence and one finally said, "Fellows in the same ship?"  Now, isn't that even more true than what we usually think of "Fellowship?"!  I hope as you think of Fellowship Baptist Association, it's in the light of this unique definition....that we are here together.....serving Christ and one another.

Februrary 17, 2018

Each February, thousands of children across North America participate in ministry projects on the same day: Children's Missions Day. From feeding hungry people to visiting shut-ins, girls and boys follow God's command to "put your love into action" (1 John 3:18). Church groups create projects that meet needs in their own communities. WMU created Children's Missions Day to move children out of their churches and into their communities to do missions. The first Children's Missions Day was in 2008. Since then, thousands of people have taken part in Children's Missions Day! 

You may have noticed we’ve recently changed the name of this event from Children’s Ministry Day to Children’s Missions Day. Don’t worry, this is not a typo! We’ve put plenty of thought and prayer into this change.  I hope your church will plan a local mission project that involves your students!

Ladies Night Out

March 8, 2018 -- 6:00 PM at Cedar Grove Baptist Church.  The cost is $10.00.  Reservations are due by 3/1/18...just call the office to make your reservation.  Guest speaker and music by Becki Kelley.  She will be speaking about her mission trip to Haiti.  Plan to attend!  Good music!  Good speaking! Good food!  Good fellowship!  Good time!

Pastor's Conference

March 17 -- Olive Point Baptist Church. 

Last year we had a good turn-out for our first Pastor’s Conference held at Cross Timbers Baptist Church. Please be sure to get this next date on your calendar now! On March 17 we will have our FBA/DCBA Pastor’s Conference at Olive Point Baptist Church. Olive Point is the first road that turns East just south of Skyline School.

Dr. John Marshall will be leading....Pastor Barry Edwards will be leading...and there will be break-out sessions through the day. EVERYONE IS WELCOME TO ATTEND!! However...the conference is especially designed for new/young pastors....for "older" new pastors....or for any pastor who would like a little more training! I am sure this will be a good investment for those who attend. PLEASE....if you have men in your church who might benefit from this....be sure to let them know and encourage them to get registered!

Mission Banquet - March 22

The Mission Banquet this year will be March 22 -- 6:00 PM at Smith's Restaurant in Collins, Missouri.  Our speaker this year will be Ken McCune.  Bro Ken recently retired from the MBC and has served as an IMB missionary.  The cost will be $13.00...reservations due by March 19.  Your reservation may be made by calling our office -- emailing Judy or me -- or via text to me.
