Student Ministry Paperwork

We want to make sure your student is safe at every event. To attend one of our events here at FBC, we need to have a copy of each of these forms on file. Click on the blue circle to download each form. You can fill them out online, or print them out and return them to our offices. The "Release of Liability Form" must be notarized before turning it in.  Your paperwork stays on file for year, so if you have already filled this form out within the last year, you don't have to fill it out again. If you have any questions, you can contact us using the form on our "students" page.
