The latest FBC Trussville news you need to know!  (Updated 4/22/18)

Sunday @First Baptist
Sunday, April 22, 2018
9:15 and 10:45am

You get 936 weeks with your child before he or she turns 18. If one gum ball represents one week in that time span, you’ll gradually see those gum balls disappearing over time. Before their “jar” is empty, you pray that they’ve inherited a faith that will stick with them for life.

This Sunday, as we continue our study, we’ll deal with the subject of doubt in the faith with our kids. Join us again for Sticky Faith this Sunday!

Can’t be with us in person? Join us online through our live stream!

Preschool/Children’s Choir
K3 thru 5th Grades

Our 1st-5th grade kids will lead in worship in the 9:15 service on April 22, then share in the 10:45 service on April 29. They’ve been working hard all winter and spring learning how to become worship leaders. Help us celebrate their efforts on these two dates in worship!

The preschool choirs will share on April 29 at a special time of worship just for them, taking place in the high school worship space (A200) at 4:30pm.
