Serving @ First Baptist

Serving the church and the community is an expression of worship to God. It is what we mean by the “living the life” (vision strategy #2). At First Baptist, we aim to help you find a ministry that utilizes your spiritual gifts, natural talents, passions, and experiences. We call this locating your “sweet spot.”

If you are unsure of your spiritual gifts, click here and take a personalized assessment However, bear in mind, the best way to discover how God has gifted you is by serving in various ministries. God will confirm your gifts through His Spirit and through those you serve.

    If you are interested in volunteering for a ministry we would love to help you find your niche. Please contact our church office, and we will make sure we help you serve well.

    Children are encouraged to stay in the sanctuary for worship.  Children that are above the age for the nursery are given an activity bag with quiet activities to help keep them occupied so they can stay to hear the message.  We want our children to be a part of our worship and to hear biblical preaching.


Sundays, 10:00 -12:00am. We provide Nursery care for children up to 0-3 years old.

Children’s/Youth Ministry

We have a children/youth committee that plan annual events such as the Easter Egg Hunt, 5th Quarter activities for our youth, Christmas parties and other activities throughout the year.
