Ephesians 4:16 “From Jesus, the whole body, joined and held together by every supporting ligament,

grows and builds itself up in love, as each part does its work.
 
Jesus told us, his disciples, to make disciples of all nations. One of the most important values of this church is our mission to the world. It begins in our own community, and spreads overseas to every nation. Church members are involved in a variety of ministries that help the body grow and reach out in love.

A FEW AREAS TO SERVE

Media & Technology

Using media to spread the gospel is a privilege of this church. In an age of widespread technology, we have a stewardship to use these tools as best as possible for kingdom purposes. All of our weekly sermons are uploaded to our website in audio format. We also maintain an active Facebook and Twitter feed for additional church communication.  Soon we will also have a church app that will need updated.  Every Sunday we rely on lyrics being run from a computer (using a program called ProPresenter). 
  • Computer Projector (ProPresenter program run on PC)
  • Sound Engineer (sanctuary)
  • Sound Engineer (radio)
  • Social Media Editor – Facebook, Twitter, Website
  • Graphic Design – Powerpoint/Microsoft Publisher/Photoshop (many templates provided)
 

Education/Training

To fulfill our vision of being a community IN Christ, we need to pour into our church community the truth of the Word of God and the experience of living out the gospel in our daily lives. We need leaders who are willing to teach and guide others through the Scriptures in our youth ministries, our Sunday school classes, and our study groups throughout the week. Some of our younger ministries simply need volunteers that are willing to there for the children and help the current leaders accomplish their lesson.
  • Youth Ministry
  • Sunday School Volunteer/Teacher
  • Bible Study Leader (at the church)
  • Home Bible Study Leader (growth group)
  • Nursery/Child Care Helpers
 

Welcome Team

The usher team at our 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.

Music & Drama

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

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 list of missionaries supported by First Baptist are can be found on our Missions page. Each year, we provide opportunities to travel as part of a small missions team to assist our missionaries in practical projects and evangelistic outreach. Currently, we are sending our teams to Haiti. 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. For more information, contact the office or visit our Missions page.

Prayer Warriors

Prayer cannot be overestimated. Prayer moves the hand of God. Our Church is a body of believers dependent upon prayer, and committed to God’s sovereignty. Each Sunday, during the morning service, a team of volunteers is praying for the ministry of the Word. Throughout the week, volunteers from our Prayer Warriors team pray for their pastor, a list of church members, any special requests, and missionary prayer needs. Each Wednesday, the church comes together for a special time of prayer and Bible study.
