Adult Sunday School Elective Classes

Our Adult Sunday School elective classes are designed as a time of training and equipping and are less formal than the preaching time on Sunday morning. We offer a variety of classes where there’s something for everyone – instructional, doctrinal, and personal application studies. It is a great opportunity to spend time with your church “family.”

If you are seeking meaningful, honest, and loving biblical friendships, please join us any Sunday morning at 9:00 AM as we gather weekly to worship our awesome God together in the Spirit of truth and love, as we learn to enjoy Jesus more and more by His grace and for His eternal glory (John 13:34-35).

Life Group Ministry and Fellowship

Here at First Baptist we offer personal ministry and fellowship connections through, what we call, LIFE Groups. We have explained this particular ministry below. If you are not a member of a LIFE Group and would like to join one, please call the church office or speak to one of our pastors.

What are LIFE Groups?

A small group ministry designed to build greater intimacy and loving accountability in our adult ministries, by meeting monthly in homes to spur each other on to live out Acts 2:42, as we continue steadfastly in:

– The apostle’s doctrine (intimacy of the word) – Rom. 5:5
– The fellowship of faith (intimacy of heart) – 2 Cor. 5:14
– The breaking of bread (intimacy of union and communion) – 1 Cor. 11:24-25
– The ministry of prayer (intimacy of bearing each others burdens) – Gal. 6:2

What are Our Specific Goals?

L = Love (John 13:34-35) loving as Christ loves, leading to obedience in faith (John 14:21)

I = Intercession (1 Thessalonians 5:17) praying out of love for one another, fervently (James 5:16)

F = Fellowship (Heb. 10:24-25) encouraging one another to press on in grace

E = Exhortation (Prov. 27:17) inspiring one another through God’s enabling word

Why Do We Meet?

Our key goal as a church is to glorify Christ in fulfilling the Great Commission of Matthew 28:18-20, knowing growing Christians are contagious in building body life in the church, and are lovingly active in sharing Christ through evangelism (Acts 1:8).

Men’s and Women’s Ministries

Our men’s and women’s ministries (Fishers of Men and S.E.L.A.H.) meet throughout the year. They include everything from home and church Bible studies, prayer breakfasts, outdoor activities, sporting events, holiday evangelistic outreaches, banquets, and much, much more.
If you want to get involved, please call the church office at 330-854-9710 for our calendar of events.
