FIRST Internationals

International Ministry

Through our international programs at First Baptist you can find practical help adjusting to life in the USA. We offer classes in  conversational English and grammar, that will help you adapt more easily to your new surroundings. Weekly classes, group activities, and special day trips will also introduce you to new friends in the community.

Weekly Regular Schedule

Sundays at 9:15 AM come for International Bible Study and English classes using the Bible in L-315.

Wednesdays at 6:30 PM  – Our Bible Study will start back in September of this year. Have a wonderful summer!

Upcoming Events

A Global Community

Throughout the year First Internationals will have group events that involve trips, games, food, and always lots of fun. If your not ready to come to Sunday School this is a great way to meet friends, connect with other cultures, and talk to people in a non-church environment. If you do come to Sunday School then this is a great way to build community outside of church. Either way we’d love to have you join us.

Contact Ryan Dupree for information regarding First International events.
