A Word From Pastor Buddy

I hope your summer days are going well and you are enjoying the daily rain showers! Well, here we go again. Just when we thought things were settling down and life was getting back to normal, Covid 19 has come back for another visit. Please be assured that we are aware of what is taking place and trying to find a balance between taking precautions and living life as normal as possible. We are also aware that any precautions that are made will be too extreme for some and not enough for others. Due to this, we encourage each of you to do what is best for you.


When you arrive on campus, you will of course experience a clean environment that will be constantly prepared for your arrival. Mask and hand sanitizers will be available for you at each entrance. Because both the vaccinated and not-yet vaccinated are being infected, we would encourage you to practice physical distancing as much as possible. However, even with these precautions, which have become our new normal, it will still be necessary for some of you to stay at home. We certainly embrace this and we will be working with each of your classes so that you can utilize zoom to stay connected with your small group. Of course, you can worship with us each week as we celebrate God’s goodness together through several different avenues.


I encourage you to pray for one another during these days. Thank you for your prayers, love and support for your leadership team as we strive daily to navigate these uncharted waters. First Baptist Church has survived a lot during the past 200 years and we will not only survive this but thrive! The best days are ahead of us and God will continue to do what only He can! Let us not become weary in doing good, for at the proper time we will reap a harvest if we do not give up. (Galatians 6:9 NIV)


Your Pastor,



Thursday, June 22 • 9:00am
In the middle school space
Season Adults, bring your competitive spirit and maybe a few games you’d like to play and meet us in the middle school area on Thursday morning! We’ll stay and play (and eat) as long as people stick around! It’s another morning of fun with your First Family!



Sunday, July 25 • 9:15 & 10:45am
Pastor Buddy leads us in our continued study on the Parables of Jesus, on the Parable of the Ten Virgins, found in Matthew 25. Readiness is a common theme in the Christian faith, always keeping watch for the return of the Son of God to come and take His church home. Through this story we’ll see first-hand the urgency our Lord wants us to have in waiting and watching for Him!


This Sunday, July 25
7:00pm • A200
A special time for university students and young adults, we’ll be hanging out and talking about life’s toughest questions through a Biblical lens. Coffee and snacks provided!

Trip Postponed
New dates: August 21-28
Our men are making a return trip to Gap Creek to finish construction on a church there. The Men On Mission have been making an annual construction mission trip every year since 1984. Skill level is not important; you will be trained to help in ways that are beneficial to the team, and fun for you!
Our trip, originally planned for June, has had to be postponed a couple of times this summer, but alas! It is still happening! This year dads are especially challenged to serve alongside their teenage sons, and it’s not too late to sign up! To do so, click here.
