God-honoring worship is something we strive for. Many of our church members are involved in our music ministry. Some play their instruments, some are vocalists, and others are involved in the choir. These volunteers play an important part in the ministry of First Baptist Church by using their talents and gifts to glorify God. If you’re interested in becoming a part of our music ministry, please contact Vic Watson, Minister of Music.
Media & Technology
Using media to spread the gospel is a privilege for First Baptist 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 will be uploaded to our website in audio formats. We also maintain an active Facebook feed for additional church communication.
Prayer Warriors (Prayer Room Ministry)
Prayer cannot be overestimated. Prayer moves the hand of God. First Baptist Church is a body of believers dependent upon prayer, and committed to God’s sovereignty. Throughout the week, volunteers to our Prayer Warriors team pray for their pastor, church members, any special requests, and missionary prayer needs. Each Wednesday night, the church comes together for a special time of prayer and Bible study.
In order to give our children the best Bible teaching possible, First Baptist holds a children’s church service in conjunction with the main service. This special time gives our kids more opportunity for interaction and learning in a context and manner that is better suited to their age and learning styles. Our friendly children’s church volunteers have an endless stream of creativity–ranging from singing songs, playing games, and teaching object lessons.

Prayer Shawl Ministry
The purpose of the Prayer Shawl ministry is to provide a source of outreach and comfort to those around us who are going through difficult circumstances. They can also be given in times of happiness such as weddings, births, baptisms and other occasions. The focus of the ministry is to make prayer shawls and other knitted items which are given to the recipient after being prayed over by the church. The ministry is open to anyone who is interested in learning to knit or who is already skilled in knitting. The sessions are held bi-weekly on Tuesday at 9:30am. The sessions are held at the home of Sherry Reynolds. There are currently over 30 members of the ministry.
