Ministries By Life Stages
In every church the most precious and valuable resource is its members. At First Baptist we are blessed with many maturing and senior adults whose work and devotion has laid the foundation enabling us to be where we are today. We owe them a debt of gratitude that can never fully be repaid.
We also understand the unique spiritual and lifestyle needs of today’s maturing/senior adults. We strive to meet those needs in a personal way each day in a dynamic environment that is just as unique. It is our desire to exalt the name of Jesus, edify believers, enhance the work of the local church, and evangelize the lost.
Join us as we endeavor to carry out our Lord’s command at home and around the world.

Opportunities for Involvement
Adult Sunday School
Classes are available for all adult age groups on Sunday mornings. Join us at 9:45 for a time of Bible Study and fellowship.
We meet the second Monday of each month at 10:00 am in the Family Life Center. Bring your favorite covered dish and join us for fun, food, and fellowship.
The Maturing/Senior Adult Choir meets each Wednesday at 9:45 am in the choir practice room, and is open to any adult who would like to attend.
Bible Conferences and Retreats
God’s Word is an important part of the ministry at FBC. Each year our Maturing/Senior Adults have the opportunity to attend various conferences and retreats.
Adult VBS for 2016 will be August 8-12 from 10:00 a.m. until 12:00 noon in the Family Life Center at FBC.
Shut-In and Nursing Home Ministry
At First Baptist we believe in an ongoing ministry, not only to our shut-in members but to others in our community. We also have an active ministry at many of our local nursing homes, and rehab facilities.
During the year our Maturing/Senior Adults have the opportunity to visit many of our area’s historical, cultural, and entertaining attractions.
