About Us

The mission of First Baptist Church is best represented by the following priorities: a strong, Biblically based, preaching ministry which communicates Christian theology in terms that are relevant to people's lives; a youth ministry which nurtures faith, commitment and discipleship; active programs of pastoral care, visitation, music, and involvement with members of the congregation; a ministry that leads people to make decisions for Christ and encourages their participation in the local church, community, and the world; a program of short-term Christian counseling; and a church environment which nurtures a sense of acceptance, inclusion, and caring. Our facilities are handicapped accessible.


Our Pastor:

On July 2, 2017, we welcomed a new Pastor, Rev. John Hall and his wife Heidi. He comes to us with 17 years of ministry in previous churches. He states, "My call is to love and care for the people of God. I love theology and there are social issues that just break my heart. But, neither one is of greater importance than the love, care and nurture of the people of God." Heidi and John have 2 grown children. Please help us welcome them to our church family!

We are still making our meals from the church and are still making sandwiches.  We find ourselves reminiscing about the big meals we used to put together at the Salvation Army, but I doubt we will return to that mode until it is safe for the recipients of the meals to come together for the communal meal.  We do so miss serving the people and having the interaction, but will continue to do the thing that is safest for everyone.


What we did last month for Soup Kitchen worked out well, so I am planning a similar thing for this month.  Sandwiches will be much as we have done for the past couple of years.  I'll drop off sandwich fillings at the church next Thursday morning by 9 am.  I am hoping you guys will make bag lunches with a sandwich, chips and a dessert and someone can get them to the Salvation Army.

I will go to the Salvation Army and make soup, not barnyard soup, but something similar.  Then when they open at 11:45 I'll dish up soup and give out bag lunches.

In preparation for all this I brought bags of stuff to church Sunday.  I gave out vegetables for peeling and cutting for the soup as well as some eggs and mayo which I expected would become egg salad for sandwiches.

So we found people to cut carrots, people to dice potatoes, someone to dice onions, a couple of someones to cook about 12-18 eggs each and make egg salad.  Several someones will also make desserts, and we have someone to bring the bag lunches to the Salvation Army.  We look ready, I think.

If anyone prefers to be at the Salvation Army handing stuff out, let me know.  Also, let me know if you think I've forgotten anything.  Thank you very much everyone.
