The chili beans, slaw and cornbread were great!  There was plenty of candy.  The kids in costumes were awesome but perhaps, the most intriguing were the adults…..everybody had some fun!  Shoutout to FBC’s Youth!  Great job!

June 1, 2016 is “Dream Night” at FBC

Today is a new day at First Baptist Church! We are moving forward as a congregation into uncharted waters, but we are a people of faith believing that God will lead us in our journey. Now is the time for us to look to the future and dream great dreams, for “The future belongs to those who believe in their dreams.”

On Wednesday night, June 1, at 6:30 p.m. in the Fellowship Hall, we will have a “Dream Night.” This will be a joyful and optimistic gathering with delicious desserts to sweeten our dreams! We want you to dream of where our church can be 5 years from now – 10 years from now! As the Personnel Committee begins to form our Search Committee, our dreams will be essential as we look for a new Associate Minister. Make June 1 a priority! Dare to dream great dreams for First Baptist!
