We practice open communion at First Baptist. That means if you have accepted Christ as your Savior, you are welcome to join with us during communion. We celebrate the Lord's Table during the first Sunday of each month. Our communion bread is nut-free, gluten-free, and dairy-free so that all of the Church body is able to partake together in unity. 

This week, Sunday, January 24th, we will be meeting indoors for 10 a.m. worship service. We will be wearing masks and practicing social distancing for everyone's safety. This Sunday's sermon will also be available online for those who are not yet able to attend in person.

E-mail from the Pastor, Sunday January 24, 2021

Hi Church!

Wow we have really blitzed through the month of January! This week, in worship, we will consider the phrase "HE WAS CONCEIVED BY THE POWER OF THE HOLY SPIRIT, AND WAS BORN OF THE VIRGIN MARY" in our study from the Apostle's Creed. Our text is what normally comes up at Christmas time, Luke 1:26-38 dealing with the birth of Jesus. The BIG theme of the week is INCARNATION! Why is that important and what impact does it have on us in n2021? We will see.

The 2020 Annual Report has been published. We will have print copies available this Sunday. If you need one mailed out, let me know. Our Annual Meeting is next Sunday, January 31, 2021.

By the way, you folks are awesome! Our total for the RMMO offering: $1,270.

E-mail from the Pastor, January 17, 2021

Hi Church,

I hope this email finds you doing well and strong in the Lord. This week our study of the Apostle's Creed takes us into a six-week segment on Jesus. The Creed is a Trinitarian statement of faith: God the Father, God the Son and God the Holy, with the Son getting the most ink. I hope you will join us in worship either in person on Sunday morning or through our recorded option at our website.

Our Annual Meeting is coming up on Sunday, January 31. One of the items that is taken care of at that meeting is the approval of the 2021 Church Budget. The meeting will begin after worship that morning.

We are under a Winter Advisory right now, although I haven't seen any of the snow or freezing rain yet. If or when it comes, please be safe. God bless.
