EPIC Commitment Sunday
Last Sunday, May 21st

Last Sunday was Commitment Sunday for our EPIC strategy, but it’s not too late to turn in your commitment card and/or contribute to the one-time cash donation. You can do so any time this week, this Sunday, May 28, or even online. We’re in the midst of getting ready to act on a strategic plan for the year 2021, a plan that Pastor Buddy introduced back on April 23. It’s in that year that our church will be 200 years old. But we don’t want to just grow old gracefully. We want to be in the best shape we’ve ever been in as a church in order to reach the next generation for Christ. How will we do this? Through a strategy we’re simply calling EPIC. This Sunday we take the first step to begin this plan.  Read more

This Sunday @First Baptist
May 28, 2017  •  9:15 & 10:45

Elijah was a prophet of God like few other. Unafraid in the face of extreme tests and challenges, he was a messenger willing to test the limits of faith to bring glory to his God. But he was also human, at one point struck by fear that led him to run. But despite his humanity, God used this prophet to show us what He can do in and through us if we just say yes when he calls. And the end of his story…well, that’s a story all in itself!

Join us this Sunday, May 28 as we continue our series, People of the Book.

Next Wednesday @First Baptist
May 31, 2017  •  5:00-7:00pm
On Magnolia Mall

Summer is here, and we’re kicking it off the right way together with our First Family!

We’re having a hot dog/hamburger cookout on Magnolia Mall, the area adjacent to our property. There’ll be activities for kids and students of all ages, and the music of Brad Ryan and Kelli Johnson! There is no cost, but donations will be accepted. Make plans now to join us!

Baptism Sunday
Sunday, June 4  •  Noon

Our next Baptism Sunday is coming up. This is simply an informal time of baptism for anyone needing to follow the Lord Jesus in believer’s baptism. For clarification, you can be baptized any Sunday during services, but for some the thought of being in front of a people is more than intimidating. This opportunity simply lets you do so in a low-key, informal setting. Friends and family are welcome to stay and watch you take this step of obedience as well.

To participate, bring a change of clothes and come the Chapel following the second service. You will be directed from there.

For questions about baptism, Baptism Sunday, or scheduling your time of baptism during services, contact us at

Vacation Bible School
June 12-15  •  9:00am-Noon

For all kids, ages 4 through 5th grade, a great week of fun, worship, and Bible study…and more fun! We’ll see how having Jesus in our lives literally makes us come alive. Plan now to join in, and bring a friend!

Graduation Sunday
Last Sunday, May 21, 2017

Last Sunday we recognized 46 upcoming graduates on what we annually call “Graduation Sunday.” The graduates were recognized within the 10:45 service, but at 9:15 Westbrook Christian School senior Michael Miller shared a word of thanks to the FBCT family for the investment made in him and his fellow seniors during his time here. Afterward followed a video presentation of these graduating seniors.

Watch this segment within the 9:15 service here.
