Welcome and thanks for checking us out!  Our church family is made up of all ages and walks of life.  We're engineers, school teachers, janitors, scientists, stay at home moms, contractors, retirees, students, gardeners, Navy, Coast Guard, and more.  We are from lots of different communities - Waterford, East Lyme, New London, Groton, Oakdale, and even as far away as Griswold.  But one thing unites us, our desire to become and make disciples who love and serve Jesus Christ!

We are a family of believers in Jesus.  We trust Him to save us from our sins.  We study His word, the Bible, in order to know Him more deeply.  We come together to help each other along in our journey, to lift each other up when we fall, and to grow more and more in the grace of our Lord.  We hope you will come and join us!

My wife Christel and I have enjoyed attending FBCW for the past 25 years.  The Christian experience here has been a big asset helping us the raise our three children and grow in knowledge of and service to our Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ.  I enjoy being involved in men’s ministries here at FBCW when I’m not building submarines, tending a large vegetable garden and pursuing my life long hobby of amateur radio. We were blessed with our first grandchild this fall. God is very good.  Please feel free to come join Christel and I for donuts and coffee Sunday mornings.
