What to Expect
We know meeting someone for the first time can be intimidating, and going to a new church for the first time can be nerve-racking. We want to help make your first experience a great one.
What does this mean for you? Most importantly, you’re always welcome at First Baptist Church. We’re saving a seat for you.
In our Sunday morning worship hour:
You'll hear the scripture from the Old and New Testaments
You will hear words of faith and joy, repentance and forgiveness
We pray collectively and individually, we sing Christian songs old and new
Sunday school begins after the Children's moment
Then we talk with each other over tea, coffee and refreshments after the service
“Therefore go and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, and teach them to obey everything I have commanded you. Surely I am with you always to the very end of the age.”

We believe that kids should have a blast at church every single week - and at First Baptist, we make this a priority. We want them to love coming to church each week and use a variety of teaching methods so that learning about the Bible is fun and engaging.

Small Groups Ministry
If you are feeling the need to strengthen your prayer life then this Zoom small group session is for you! Beginning on Wednesday January 20th at 7 p.m., Pastor Jake, Pastor Mike, and the Deacons will be leading teachings on the six petitions of the Lord’s Prayer along with guided discussions of prayers of individuals from the Bible who exemplify each petition. Imagine discussing the prophet Elijah’s prayer against the 450 false prophets of Baal in the context of Jesus teaching to pray “Thy Kingdom Come”. We will also engage in a group prayer time and provide suggestions to enrich your personal prayer life. Please contact Pastor Jake for the Zoom link and discussion materials.
Woman's Group -The women of the church will be gathering again for a women's Bible study via Zoom beginning Monday, January 25th at 9 a.m. for a nine-week study on the Book of James. The focus of the study -- "We all want a faith that won't let us down in times of trouble or loss, uncertainty or fear. A faith that can pull us through the worst - and best - times in our lives. This is the kind of faith that James writes about. It is the faith that we practice day by day. Studying James will help us grow a steadfast faith that can carry us through life." Contact Karen via email no later than Sunday, January 3rd, if you are interested in attending to allow time for her to place the Bible study book order.
