How Do I Meet People?
First baptist Church is not a place for spectators. It is a place for servant members. Whether you are a five-year old child, a ninety-five year old grandmother, a busy mom, or a businessman with big responsibilities, we want you to be a part of our vibrant church community. Here is how you can learn, serve, and grow at First Baptist Church.
Often, small groups of people are better able to interact and learn about a topic than larger groups are. For that reason, First Baptist Church will be looking to start up small group bible studies held in member homes. The size of the groups will be anywhere from six to twelve. They will also meet at a time designated by your group, making participation more flexible.
Each Sunday morning, children get to participate in their own classes. Bible lessons are taught in such a way that every child gets to participate and learn. Each of the class teachers is carefully screened and thoroughly trained in children’s instruction. The youth ministry of First Baptist is recognized for their close interaction.
Life can get complicated once you cross that nebulous threshold into adulthood. There are complicated decisions. Bigger stakes. Serious relationships. And a whole lot more decisions. The young adult group of First Baptist provides a welcoming atmosphere for college and early-career aged young people. They meet at 9:30 am on Sundays.
First Baptist Women’s Group gives the ladies in our church family special times of interaction. Our women’s group meets regularly on Saturday mornings at 9:00am for times of Bible study, prayer (and, of course, food). These groups provide a refreshing discipleship opportunity for the women in the church.
Even though marriage is one of the most important institutions, it is the one which is under the most attack–internally and externally. First Baptist will be sponsoring and leading marriage classes ranging on topics from Marriage and Money, Getting Ready for Kids, Shepherding Children, Marriage and Sex. These classes are set to begin after the Church remodeling has been completed.
Once you get past fifty, the fun has just begin. Whether retired, just plain tired, or active as ever, the over-50 group of First Baptist provides refreshment, ministry, and times of valuable interaction. A mentoring ministry gives older believers a chance to meet with and help younger believers grow in Christ.
