Here is some food for thought! “God is faithful, by whom you were called into the fellowship of His Son Jesus Christ our Lord.” - 1 Corinthians 1:9

Serving Christ is great and we are encouraged to do so! But this text is an amazing reminder that even though there is nothing wrong with serving Christ as we do so well here at first Baptist, we need to remember that in order to minister, we always need to be in fellowship with Jesus Christ as His disciples before we can minister to others.

Let each of us look out not only for his own interests, but also for the interests of others. Phil. 2:4

Self-centeredness is the exact opposite of agape love. Jesus gave Himself totally in love, with no thought of receiving anything in return. We are to reflect that love to our spouse, family, friends, and the world.

YOUR MEDIA CENTER IS LOCATED AT THE TOP OF THE STAIRS ACROSS FROM THE ELEVATOR NEW HOURS SUNDAY 9:00 - 10:15 AM and WED 5:45 - 7:15 PM

Love doesn’t seek its own. Love considers the other person and gets excited about seeing that their needs are met. If God so loved us, we also ought to love one another. I John 4:11

We are starting the new year with a new look! We have a new logo and a new motto. Our new motto is “With a Big HEART”. We love our preschoolers with a big heart and love to teach them about Jesus. Our teachers are loving Christian ladies that go out of their way to help these children any way they can. Pray for them each day as they teach these children about God’s love.

The Preschool is growing! Limited spaces available for our two, three, and four year old classes. If you, or someone you know, is looking for a Christian Preschool that loves children with a BIG HEART, this is where they need to be. Full-Time and Part-Time spaces available. If you are able to put fliers up in your office, we would love for you to post a flier about our Preschool. Fliers are available in the Welcome Center or in the Preschool office.
