First Baptist Church
On Christmas Eve at 6 p.m., we will have a communion service with music and a brief message from the Scripture. We would love to have you join us!
Also, we have begun using a new Sunday School curriculum entitle, “ABC.” This three-year program covers the entire Bible in chronological order. It provides answers to the issues that confront today’s culture through the media, school, friends, etc. ABC provides a thorough understanding of the authority and primary teachings of Scripture. All ages will be equipped to defend the Bible, and become conformed to the image of Christ, as they apply God’s Word in their everyday lives. Age-appropriate Sunday school classes meet following the morning worship service.
If you have any questions, feel free to contact the church office, Monday through Thursday, 8-11 a.m. Have a blessed Christmas!
