Church Family,

In response to the COVID 19 pandemic and with sensitivity to our at risk members, we will be deviating from our normal services this Sunday, April 12. Instead, we will be utilizing our online capabilities and live-streaming our worship service at 10AM. You will be able to view the 10 o’clock service from our website and Facebook page. After the service, staff members will be available at the church from 11 to Noon to talk and pray with anyone who feels led to respond. During that 11 o’clock hour, you may come by the church in person for prayer, call the office, or even drive through the back parking lot where a staff member will be waiting.

You are loved and our fellowship is missed. However, we as a church will stand strong, worship collectively, and be a light in our communities because Jesus Christ is Lord. Our confidence, hope, and security powered by His love gives us the responsibility and privilege to not only endure this season but to grow in our faith and to grow our family. Stay in touch with one another, encourage, creatively serve our community, and love your neighbor.

You are loved!

Prayer is a privilege not an afterthought. We are committed to prayer and God’s sovereignty.

Opportunities to speak godly wisdom into my co-workers' lives

Jonathan Grove, March 29, 2020 - 5:30 am

I need to be closer to God. Please pray that God will draw me to Himself through Jesus Christ. I also struggle a lot with being single. Please pray that Jesus Christ would help me meet the lady He wants me to marry. Thank you so much and God bless you.

My sister-in-law Jamie Ellis has been diagnosed with breast cancer. Please put her on Watchmen's Prayer list.

Where can you connect?



Worship is our response to God’s initiative. It is His idea and it is all about Him. Worship services are planned scripturally to reflect what God is saying to us as a church and to give voice to the heart’s desire of His people to praise Him. We respond to Him corporately in different ways but always consistent with His Word. From contemporary, to more traditional, to blended services, we want to worship in spirit and in truth.



Students are energetic, creative, passionate, and just plain fun to be around. Our goal in student ministry is simply to help students take those positive traits and use them for the kingdom of God. Our students are involved in Bible studies designed to challenge faith to flourish and inspire Christ-likeness. We also have different avenues of ministry opportunities throughout the year for students to share the hope of the gospel. In addition we offer numerous opportunities designed to promote Christian fellowship and spiritual growth.



Our desire is to provide support and encouragement to parents while providing programs and activities that lay a strong spiritual foundation for children from birth to 6th grade. On-going preschool activities include Sunday School, Mission Friends, choir, Mother’s Day Out, Weekday Early Education, and nursery care during worship. Older children enjoy Sunday School, Discipletown (kids church), RA’s, GA’s, and choir.  Throughout the summer, kids can also enjoy VBS, Music Camp, Art Camp, Centrikid Camp, & other “Fun in the Son” activities.




Find your connection with God, His Word, and His followers in any of the multiple areas of discipleship that First Baptist Church offers.
Sunday School– our primary mode of small group Bible study.
Connection Groups– small groups that are interest driven and biblically based that meet on Wednesday nights.
The Well– Women’s small group that meets on Thursday mornings.


The strategy of missions at First Baptist is to be a beacon of light in our community, preparing disciples, and sending those whom God has called out into the world through multiple mission opportunities locally, nationally, and internationally.


Watchman Prayer is our 24/7 prayer ministry. Our Watchman Prayer Wall consists of 168 prayer warriors, one for each hour of the day, 7 days a week and 24 hours a day. If you would like to be a part of this intercessory prayer ministry please contact the office.
