Scripture Searches Starts New Study

The Scripture Searches Sunday School class will be starting a Bible study. Our study will be Jesus and Women in the first century and now by Kristi Mclelland.

Join biblical culturalist Kristi McLelland on those dusty roads as she transports you back to Jesus’ world, stepping into the footsteps of the women who came face to face with the living God. As we examine the historical and cultural climate of first-century Middle Eastern society to not only understand Jesus more deeply but to fuel your worship of Him today.

We invite any ladies looking for a Sunday School class to join us.  


Sunday evening service will start back, Sunday, July 11 in the fellowship hall. We hope you will make plans to deepen your study of God’s word through this time of worship and teaching.


Men’s Bible study will begin Wednesday, June 2nd at 7:00 PM. The group will be meeting in the Scriptures Searchers room in the Fellowship Hall. All men are welcome as they begin a study on 1st Timothy.


Don’t forget to check out Brother David’s Mid-Week Devotion on the book of Psalms. They are uploaded each Wednesday on the sermon page.

From our Family and Music Minister

Summer means more family time, right? More time at the pool, more time around the back yard grill, more time without the demands of school.

Could it also mean more time with God? More time to strengthen your relationship with Christ. More time making memories as a family learning about the love of God.

This summer, First Baptist Church will host a Family Vacation Bible School. We will meet in the church fellowship hall Wednesday, July 21st through Friday, July 23rd, from 5:30 PM – 7:15 PM.

Each night we will gather to eat, play, learn, and grow. We will meet as a large group for most of the night. However, we will break off for age-appropriate small groups. Together as a family, we will learn that God created us for a reason and that God has a purpose for each one of us, young and old. Most importantly, we will discover our need for a Savior.

To help us prepare for supper and supplies, please take the time to register you and your children.  We look forward to growing in Christ with you and your family.
