Please join us as we celebrate 144 years of ministry to We are planning a special worship celebration for this day. Special Music and reflections will be shared about our historic journey as a congregation of committed believers. We are inviting all of our members (past, present and future), families and friends to join us. It will be an unforgettable day of worship, fellowship and inspiration. Our Guest Preacher will be Rev. Andy Quient, Acting Executive Minister, American Baptist Churches of Los Angeles, Southwest and Hawaii (ABCOFLASH).
As part of the Anniversary celebration, we are inviting you to demonstrate your appreciation for the church and what First Baptist has meant to you through a “Faith Share” offering of at least $144. A “Faith Share” is a dollar for each year of the church’s existence. This gift authenticates our appreciation for God’s faithfulness toward us and in so doing demonstrates our faith that God will continue to bless First Baptist Church into the future. This offering will serve as an investment and deposit into the church programmatic year which begins on Homecoming Sunday.
