FBC Buddy System

"And let us consider how we may spur one another on toward love and good deeds,

not giving up meeting together, as some are in the habit of doing,

but encouraging one another . . ."

-Hebrews 10: 24-25 

What is the FBC Buddy System?

We want to make sure that social distancing does not become isolation for any of our FBC family and friends.   The point of our Buddy System is to keep us connected.  We want to make sure no one feels alone or at a loss as to how to get the help they need during this pandemic.

When life get's hard, we are better together than apart.

To participate simply click on any of the buttons below to sign-up & we will match you with a Buddy.  We will do the initial match ups the week of April 6th.  If you miss this date, you can still sign-up & we will match you when we receive your request.


What specifically does an FBC Buddy do?

Check In with Your Buddy 2-3 Times a Week

Get matched up with an individual or family to check in with during the COVID-19 pandemic.

Be willing to commit some time & chat a little.  Get to know their story & share yours with them.  Encourage each other.  Pray together.

If needs arise that you can fill, great! 


If there are needs that you become aware of that you are not comfortable taking care of or need help with, contact the FBC office to let us match you &/or your buddy up the right help.​​

Guess what, by volunteering to be a Buddy you'll also be fighting away your own isolation and boredom.  This a great way to serve people while staying at a safe distance.

What if I'm already doing this?

We know our church family well enough to know that some of you are already checking in on people.  We would like you to let us know about these connections on this same registration form.  We really aren't trying to be nosy.  We simply want to make sure that everyone in our FBC family & friends are being looked after.  Knowing the connections that already exist will help us get those that are without Buddies matched up quickly.


We are better together!
