---Family Life Ministries

 
 
 
There are many opportunities in the Family Life ministries.
 
Our Children’s ministry include teaching and care of children from six months old to sixth grade.  Awana is a community-wide outreach to children age two to sixth grade and meets on Wednesday nights.  The Youth ministry is focused on students from seventh to twelfth grade, including FBC families and students from the community.  Our women’s and men’s ministries have a variety of classes and events to build fellowship and grow closer to each other.  The Family ministry hopes to knit families together, from families with young children to empty nesters with love to share.  Our Senior Adults maintain relationships and grow together as they mature in Christ and in life.

---Missions

 
Our focus is on outreach, both local, in our surrounding areas and abroad. We want God’s people to see the big picture in mission work and have the opportunity to experience it first-handed. To love and develop compassion for people groups all over the world. God loves them all and so shall we! Mark 16:15 And He said to them, “Go into all the world and preach the Good news to everyone.

---Worship and Media

 
The Worship and Media ministry is focused on everything that happens in the Worship Center on a Sunday morning, as well as the community-facing communication. 
 
The Usher team provides information and assistance to guests who choose to worship with us on Sunday.  The Communion Preparation team prepares and serves the Communion elements on the first Sunday of the month.  The media team produces videos and the powerpoint support for our Sunday services.  The worship service is carefully and prayerfully planned by the Worship Planning team.  The Social Media and Website team works hard to communicate clearly and consistently with the church and the “outside world”.

---Care Groups

 
The Care Groups ministry is involved with starting, training and maintaining our Home Care Groups and Sunday School Care Groups.
 
In a church body as large as First Baptist, we have to work harder to make sure we are in relationships with one another.  Our goal is for everyone to have seven friends, and groups are a great way to meet people and build lasting relationships.

---Church Administration

 
A church the size of First Baptist has a lot of moving parts – on a Sunday and through the week.  The Church Administration deals with many of those parts.
 
The Office Volunteers team performs office tasks, greets visitors, answers the phone and updates the Realm database as required.  The Church Decorating Team makes the church beautiful for the various holidays and throughout the year.  The Safety and Health team, which is comprised of the medical team (nurses and doctors) and the various security teams, provides a safe place for people to come and worship the God of the universe.
