Where Can I Serve?

Jesus told us, his disciples, to make disciples of all nations. One of the most important values of First Baptist Church is our mission to the world. It begins in our own community, and spreads overseas to every nation. First Baptist members are involved in a variety of ministries from things as simple as washing the church vehicles, to preparing the church bulletins.



We take God’s word outside the walls of FBC in ways
of ministry to Bible Alive Families, retirement homes, community,
and mission work and labor to several areas of the country.

Always accepting people to help with promotion, host special outreach activities, helper with Awanas, Dignity Care visits and to be part of outreach activities.


Bring a Friend

God-honoring worship is something we strive for. Many church members get involved in our music ministry. Some play their instruments. Some are vocalists. Others are involved in the choir. These volunteers are an important part of the ministry of First Baptist Church, using their talents and gifts to glorify God.

We meet every Wednesday at 7:15pm

Media & Technology

Using media to spread the gospel is a privilege of First Baptist Church. In an age of widespread technology, we have a stewardship to use these tools as best as possible for kingdom purposes. All of our weekly sermons are uploaded to our website in video and audio formats. We also maintain an active Facebook and Twitter feed for additional church communication.

Always excepting new team members.


This ministry provides opportunities for people to express love, adoration, and praise to God through worship experiences that glorify God and touch the heart and spirit of the worshipers. We believe worship ties our ministries together at First Baptist Church. Worship occurs as people experience the living Christ in their midst through a variety of styles and experiences. Do you have a passion for worship? See me with ideas of how you can be instrumental in our worship.

Always accepting people for greeters, ushers, decorators for church functions, worship leaders, special music.


This ministry brings comfort and encouragement through the Body of Christ. It plans, implements and supervises the ministries necessary to meet the needs of people at FBC and throughout the community and world. The Service Ministry wants to reach out together in Christian service to meet the needs of those in our church family and in our community. If you would like to be a part of this ministry team, please talk to me. When we’re serving others, we’re also serving God.

Always accepting people for nursery workers, providing meals, transportation, children’s’ projects, odd jobs ie. painting, mowing and moving.

Fiscal Stewardship

This ministry plans, implements and supervises the faithful utilization of the fiscal resources and financial assets of FBC. We are in a tremendous position to do ministry at First Baptist Church. We have excellent facilities with no debt! What a blessing! The question to consider it this: “How can we faithfully utilize our fiscal resources to improve our ministries?” Let’s get excited about what God will do to use our resources to reach out to others as we serve Him.

Always accepting people to help with financial projects and serving on a financial committee.


This ministry seeks to bind the Body of Christ together in love. It plans, implements, and supervises the opportunities for the deepening of relationships of believers. We all have a life story and when we get to know one another through fellowship, we find that we are all more alike than we are different in everyday matters of the heart. Our lives can be changed when we fellowship with one another, and especially when we fellowship with Jesus.

Always accepting people  to cook meals, host a fellowship time, help in he kitchen and volunteer for church special events.


Prayer Team

Everyone is welcome

Prayer cannot be overestimated. Prayer moves the hand of God. First Baptist Church is a body of believers dependent upon prayer, and committed to God’s sovereignty. Every Wednesday at 8:30am, volunteers from our Prayer team, pray for their pastor, a list of church members, any special requests, and missionary prayer needs.

Youth Programs

Kindergarten through 12th grade

In order to give our children the best Bible teaching possible, First Baptist Church holds a children’s church service every Wednesday. This special time gives kids more opportunity for interaction and learning in a context and manner that may be better suited to their age and learning styles. Our friendly children’s church volunteers have an endless stream of creativity–ranging from puppet shows, to games, to object lessons. Bible Alive & Gibbous September through April Wednesdays 5:15pm – 7:00pm. Look for our newsletter for Bible Alive family events.
