Sunday evenings after church, we have a time of prayer for current concerns and needs, including soldiers deployed, missionaries, our world, leadership and many other topics. Anyone who would like to participate is welcome! We rotate into different homes each week, announcing the location during the evening service. If you are interested in hosting, let us know and we will see what is still available!
The Blessing Brigade is a ministry that supports and encourages deployed service members and their families. The Brigade is comprised of First Baptist families who seek to share the love of Christ by expressing care and concern for deployed service members and their families through specific prayer, organized helps, and on-going encouragement.
Each week a deployed service member from our First Family is recognized and prayer, letters, cards and a Blessing in a Box are sent his/her way. The family is also supported with a Blessing in a Bag and other Blessings as applicable. Do you want to be a part of this dynamic ministry? If you would like to be part of this ministry, providing an occasional "blessing" to help cheer those who sacrifice and give so much, we would love to hear from you! Let us know you are interested!
First Touch is a group of ladies that meets on the 1st Saturday of each month at FBCL. This is a time of fellowship as they work on projects for the tiniest additions - our newborn babies. This group seeks to be that first touch of love this little one receives through their handmade gifts!
Whether you quilt, knit, crochet, sew - you are welcome to join us. Often we are blessed with supplies and abilities to move beyond church members - blessing family, friends and others we become aware of within our community. You & the talent you share would certainly be welcome! Help us show the love of Jesus first hand, through First Touch - contact Alice Brooks for details on current meeting location.
