Dear Church Family,
Pam and I want to wish you a very Happy New Year! We really enjoyed the Christmas season with you! We believe that 2023 is going to be the best year for First Baptist in a long time. It’s hard to believe that we have almost been here a year now. This past year we have really loved getting to know you and serve with you! Here are some ministries for you to know and pray about.
Update on our 24/7 Youth Ministry
Our 24/7 Youth Ministry continues to meet every other week and have 17 different youth in total. A couple of times we had 10 students on that night. There’s always a lot of fun, friendship, and faith-building.
- Update on Children’s Ministry
Not only have we restarted Children’s Church which we call FBC Kids Worship, but we also have a consistent Sunday School class for the children! We are prepared and praying for these two children’s ministries to grow! We also have a search team for the Children’s Ministry Director position. We are interviewing, praying, and doing our best to discern who will help us grow our children’s ministry along with our help! Please pray for our search committee and for our future Children’s Ministry Director!
Adult Group Ministries
- Sunday School is a great opportunity for you to learn more about God’s word and have fellowship with other believers. If you aren’t currently in a class please consider coming to one of the three adult classes. There is a new study on the Series called “The Chosen”. It is about Jesus and His disciples. Pam and I love watching the series. The Young Adult Class is hosting a study based on the show and the Bible led by Marcia Wimmer starting on February 5th. It will be in the Arbor room across from the restrooms. Please join us if you aren’t already in a Sunday School class.
- New Groups
I would love to see some Connect Groups form this year. The idea of Connect Groups is for adults to get together twice a month for Fellowship, and discuss the recent sermons and how we can apply the Bible truths to our lives. If you want to be involved in a new group please let me know.
- Please invite others to join us on Sunday mornings. We want others to experience the love of Jesus and the family of God here at First Baptist.
Pam and I really love and appreciate all of you and want to thank you for helping our first year with you be a great one in many ways. We believe that year 2 in 2023 will be even better!
May the Lord bless you all in 2023!
Yours in Christ
