“not neglecting to meet together, as is the habit of some, but encouraging one another, and all the more as you see the Day drawing near.”   Hebrews 10:25

All are invited to join our church family as we gather weekly to worship God. At the center of First Baptist is the weekly gathering to worship our God and Savior through singing praise to Him as a congregation, reading Scripture together, praying as a church, and the preaching of God’s Word that calls us to apply the truth of God’s Word to our lives.

Children's Ministries

What grips the heart will drive the actions (Proverbs 4:20-27); therefore we strive to instill within the heart of our young people a love for God, His righteousness, His Word and His will. Every opportunity with our children will be aimed at reaching and molding the heart for God.

Children’s church is available during the sermon of the Worship Service for kids ages 3-2nd grade. Nursery is offered for those under age 3.

The children’s programs of FBC are intended to supplement, not replace, the role of the parents in the spiritual nurture and training of their children. Participation in an age-specific class or ministry is at the discretion of the parent. Parents are always encouraged to worship with their children and take the lead in all spiritual and biblical instruction.

Our music includes both hymns and modern-day songs. We focus on biblical content, theological accuracy, and congregational accessibility. While we have musical accompaniment, we tend to emphasize hearing the congregation sing together.
