Our Pastor's Family

Welcome to the First Community Church Web Site. We are so pleased that you have stopped by to visit. I hope that you enjoy learning about us.

My name is Pastor Joe D. Ruberg. I have been serving the Lord here in Matthews for over 34 years. I have recieved most of my education from Moody Bible Institute in Chicago and it was there that I met my lovely wife of 33 years, Pamela. We have 3 wonderful daughters, Maranatha, Charity, and Joy and now we are blessed to have three wonderful son-in-laws added to our family named Travis, Tony, and Adam as well as three grandsons, Josiah, Elisha and Joseph and four granddaughters, Faith, Moriah, Hope and Charis. Our children are all through college with a pharmicist and two stay at home Moms. We have been very blessed here in Matthews and have seen the Lord do some very wonderful things!!

We hope that you will stop by in person to visit our church. If you are, or have children attending Taylor University in Upland, or Indiana Wesleyan in Marion, or Ball State University in Muncie, we would be happy to minister to you/them and have you/them be a part of our fellowship here. If you would like us to contact you/them, just send us your/their name and applicable information. We would love to minister to all God would send our way!

Stop by some of our other pages to see what we are all about.
