Saturday, June 25th “Movie Night!”

This month we are celebrating June as marriage month!
Come join us at 5:30 PM for a free meal and 6:30 Pm for the free movie!

“Old Fashioned”

This is an old-fashioned movie for romantics! Clay Walsh (Rik Swartzwelder) runs an antique shop and has some old-fashioned ideas about romance that include reliability and loyalty. When a young woman named Amber (Elizabeth Roberts) rents an apartment above his shop, there is a definite spark between them despite the fact that Amber thinks Clay is a bit odd. She is intrigued with his ideas about courtship and they begin to ever-so-slowly develop a relationship, despite definite interest on both parts. He also encourages her to look to God.

When she attends church with Clay, she and Clay hold hands and she admits to a friend that it felt like “home.” They face a snag or two along the way, but it becomes clear that the two are destined to be together. He remembers things she considers romantic: her nails being done, walking on sand, and jazz. We are happy to award this “old-fashioned” tale our “Faith-Friendly” Seal for ages twelve and above, and award it four Doves. There are a few comments about sex, but nothing over the top. The film features a good story with old-fashioned morals, something today’s world could use more of.

Trailer Below!


Looking Ahead….

Coming to First Baptist in September!

The Gathering

Weds. Sept. 21st at 7:00 PM –
If you’re reading this, you’re invited

The Gathering has one purpose: to unite the Body of Christ in America – all believers, regardless of race, age, or denomination – in prayer for forgiveness, wisdom, and provision for our nation.

The Gathering is free of political agendas, merchandise, and ministry tents. No offering will be received. No books will be sold. No personalities will be promoted.
National revival must begin in the heart and in the home before it can spread throughout communities and nations. This is why The Gathering will focus on praying for four crucial areas of change:
Personal – Family – Communities – Nation


Tuesday Morning Men’s Bible Study

Tuesday’s 6:15 AM

To Live is Christ; To Die is Gain

Using Paul’s radical letter to the Philippians as his road map, To Live Is Christ To Die Is Gain by Matt Chandler forsakes the trendy to invite readers into authentic Christian maturity. Chandler offers tangible ways to develop a faith of pursuing, chasing, knowing, and loving Jesus. Because if we clean up our lives but don’t get Jesus, we’ve lost! So let the goal be Him. To live is Christ, to die is gain—this is the message of the letter. Therefore, our lives should be lived to Him, through Him, for Him, with Him, about Him—everything should be about Jesus.


Discipleship For Growing Believers!!

Sundays at 6:30pm – The Sr. Pastor, Michael Henderson leads a class entitled “Fresh Start” for all believers. The class is geared toward growth “In Christ
” and is ideal for those who would like a refresher in the foundational Biblical Studies found in Scripture. The is is a must class for all who desire to draw closer to God and understand Him on a deeper level.

Monthly Events

Saturday Evening Worship, Concerts, & Films , Saturdays at 6:00 pm!

Saturday 7:00 pm weekly Worship and fellowship. Working on Sunday mornings? No problem. There is plenty of opportunity to lift praises to God in song and testimony on Saturday nights! We are inviting you to come, share, and join in  in celebrating what our AWESOME GOD is doing in our lives. The Bible tells us we are not to forsake the assembling of ourselves together, (see Heb. 10:25). Please make every opportunity to attend. Sometimes we have a concert, other times a movie, but we always are doing something to lift up the name of Jesus. Many in the community have said they cannot come on Sunday Mornings so this is your opportunity to Worship the King during the evening. We are here to serve the Lord and in doing that serve you! Remember John 3:16, For God so loved the world that He gave His only begotten Son, that whosoever believes in Him may have eternal life! Find new life in Christ at FBC!
