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.


Mission Outreach

 First Baptist is thrilled to be part of the spread of God’s kingdom around the world. We are active in sending missionaries and supporting these missionaries with our money and with our prayers. The five missionaries from First Baptist are located in three countries—Africa, Ecuador, Haiti and Mexico. It is our desire send a small team from our church travels to one of these three countries to assist our missionaries in practical projects and evangelistic outreach. We encourage all of our people to respond to God’s call for laborers, whether it means that they move to a foreign country or live and minister in our own community.


Retelling the good news in today's langauge.

Music & Drama

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


Ushers

The usher team at Frist Baptist Church fills an important role. They are involved in directing attendees to their seats, ensuring the safety of the building during services, guiding traffic, helping visitors, answering questions, providing direction, unlocking doors, locking doors, and generally ensuring that the service can proceed problem-free. The usher team is a servant-hearted group of men and women whose ministry is integral to church life.


Media & Technology

Using media to spread the gospel is a privilege of Grace Community Church. In an age of widespread technology, we have a stewardship to use these tools as best as possible for kingdom purposes. We also maintain an active Facebook for additional church communication.


Marriage Counseling

Marriages can be difficult to maintain. Misunderstanding, confusion, resentment, and anger can flare up in any marriage. Our pastor and others at First Baptist Church serve other families as marriage counselors. Their role in listening, understanding, helping, and encouraging struggling couples has, by God’s grace, saved marriages, and repaired relationships. Couples have found fresh hope and new joy in a warm and fulfilling relationship with their spouse.


Prayer Warriors

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.  The first Sunday of each month, a team of volunteers is praying for the ministry of the Word and remembering in prayer various needs in the body and community. Throughout the week, faithful individulas, pray for their pastor, a list of church members, any special requests, and missionary prayer needs.


Children’s Church

In order to give our children the best Bible teaching possible, First Baptist holds a children’s church service in conjunction with the main service. 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.


Camp Counselors

Each summer, First Baptist Church hosts a youth camp. The week-long event involves games, a lot of preaching, great food, good worship, and the intentional influence of camp counselors. The camp counselors are selected, screened, and trained for this important camp ministry. They find that their ministry is personally rewarding, and both campers and counselors grow in the process.
