I'm New!

New to Fellowship Baptist Church?

We invite you to visit and make yourself at home here at Fellowship Church.

When you do, you’ll discover for yourself that we are a family-friendly church striving to become like the church, as described in the Bible. We desire to be a church with relevant teaching, authentic friendships, heart-felt worship music that expresses our love for God, and a warm, welcoming atmosphere where God changes lives. More than a church, we are a church family.

We look forward to meeting you soon. In the meantime ...

You might be wondering…

What time is the service and what is it like?

Our Sunday worship service starts at 11:00 a.m. and ends around 12:15 p.m. The atmosphere is relaxed, the hymns and worship songs are inspiring and invigorating, and the Bible-based messages are meaningful and relevant to daily life. View pictures of recent worship services here and listen to recent messages by Pastor Tom Tengler here. And please … don’t worry - we don’t embarrass our guests by singling them out; we just welcome them, thank them for joining us and make sure they’re comfortable. We also do ask our guests to complete a bulletin tear off communication card so we can keep in touch.

Is there a Sunday School or Bible Study time?

Yes. Each Sunday morning we have Bible Study (or Sunday School) classes for all ages that meet at 9:45 a.m. before our Sunday worship service. Adults can select from several different classes while preschool, children and youth all have age appropriate classes. See a few photographs here of a few classes from this past year.

What should I wear?

When you attend Fellowship Baptist Church, you’ll see people dressed in a wide range of attire, from jeans to dress clothes. Please come dressed as you feel most comfortable. You’ll fit right in.

How do I get there?

We are located to the southwest of Ann Arbor in Saline, Michigan. The church property is south of Michigan Avenue, west of Moon Road at 1045 West Bemis Road, Saline, MI 48176. If you’d like a map, click on the link in the contact section of our home page here.

What about my children?

“Let the little children come to me, and do not hinder them, for the kingdom of heaven belongs to such as these,” said Jesus in Matthew 19:14. We believe that children of all ages are a gift and treasure from God, and they are to be taught and raised up to know just how much they are loved.

We desire to partner with parents in laying a foundation of spiritual truth so that each child will know he is treasured and, in God's timing, become a lifelong follower of Jesus Christ, and grow to know, love and serve Him.

Through our children’s ministries and activities throughout the year, children learn how the Bible fits into their lives, how to talk to God, and what it means to be a lifelong follower of Jesus. Children take the gospel to heart, building a foundation – and often, friendships – that will last a lifetime.

Programs are available for all children from preschoolers through High School age. See our Children and Youth pages for more information. You can also scroll through photos of recent activities here.

Any of our greeters would be happy to direct you and your children to the right place.

Where will my children go during the worship service?

Your children will love Fellowship Baptist Church. Children attend the first half of our Celebration and Worship Service with their family. During this time, they learn the value of worship through prayer, song and testimony. Before the pastor's message, the children are dismissed to our children's worship time, where we provide fun, hands-on Bible lessons and activities during a children’s worship time designed especially to help children learn the truths of the Bible. We also provide a safe, cozy nursery for infants through pre-school. Our children's ministry leaders are volunteers who value every child and treat them with the utmost care and attention.

One of the greatest concerns of young parents in looking for a church is quality of childcare. We understand this concern and have done everything possible to calm your parental fears. We can promise a fun, loving, clean environment that helps your children feel church is a happy and loving place.

How does Fellowship Baptist help the community?

We have a variety of events and opportunities throughout the year in which our church family reaches out to our community and neighborhood. We participate in food drives and clean-up days and we partner with other local community organizations. In recent years, we have participated in Saline’s Celtic Festival, and numerous other community events. FBC has also sponsored citywide “Movie in the Park” activities with the Saline Recreation Department, plus community clean up days and ongoing ministries to some of our Saline area senior adult communities. Our church, especially our children and youth, have enjoyed participating in Operation Christmas Child and sending care packages to soldiers that are deployed.

In addition, we have a missions program that cooperatively reaches around the world supporting thousands of missionaries with education, resources, and, most of all, the good news of the gospel. Our church people have also been very active throughout the years on mission trips to assist with disaster relief after hurricanes and other storms. In addition, members have engaged in evangelism, discipleship and church planting in the U.S. and around the world in Southeast Asia, China, Thailand, Myanmar, Africa, Canada and other countries.

What kind of church are you?

Fellowship Baptist Church is an independent, self-supporting, self-governing congregation, which cooperates for missions, evangelism and resources with the Huron Baptist Association, the Baptist State Convention of Michigan and the Southern Baptist Convention.
