Good News Club

Good News Club

The Good News Clubs is an after school program focused on reaching kids with the gospel. It’s designed for kids and makes learning about the bible fun!

Children who have received parental permission come to the club after school is dismissed and separate into different rooms based on grade level. They are split again into smaller groups whereby they grab a snack and begin going over bible verses with their small group leaders. Sometimes they may sing a song or listen to a story but the goal is to learn about the bible. When small group time is up all groups converge in the gym for some worship, stories, and bible lesson.

Good News Club helps provide a safe and loving environment for kids while sharing the love of Jesus. It is a program that reaches children of all backgrounds and gives an opportunity for children that don’t go to church to learn about Jesus.

A God Who Sings!

A God Who Sings!


As First Seniors of First Baptist Church we have seen and heard a lot through the years.  I have heard a lot of teaching, preaching and singing through the years.  On the subject of singing, I have heard good singing and bad singing.  Has anyone ever complained about your singing?  On the Andy Griffith show Barney could not sing and Gomer could sing.  Gomer did not look like he could sing, but he did.  Have you ever thought about our God singing?

Episode 19 : Being A Good Neighbor With Rachel Church

Episode 19 : Being A Good Neighbor With Rachel Church

Welcome to the First Community Podcast where we talk about life and faith with our First Baptist Family.

She’s not in the spotlight often, but everyone knows her for how well she loves the people around her. We had the privilege of chatting with Rachel Church about how to care for your community and make time for the needs around you. This podcast will convict you about how you’re spending your time and resources, but it will also encourage you to look around and see the mission field in your own back yard. Oh, and yes, Rachel also happens to be married to Pastor Wes, so we discuss that too!

Your Special Gift

Your Special Gift

There are two days that almost every single person looks forward to. They are Christmas and your birthday. Why do we love those days? It is because of gifts. We receive gifts on those days. I still have some of my favorite Christmas gifts including Hot Wheels, a G.I. Joe doll and a Ken. My sister had the Barbie so I had the Ken. Do you remember the excitement that you had as a child over Christmas? You could not wait to see what was under the tree.

Welcome to the First Community Podcast where we talk about life and faith with our First Baptist Family.

You’ve probably seen him on stage during worship services. If you’ve done anything musically here at First Baptist, you’ve likely been led by him. He even has a viral video out there on the Internet. But how well do you actually know Keith Watson, our Associate Music Minister? Always the life of the party, Keith can be found in many different roles here at the church, working with a range of people aged 9 to 99. On this episode of the First Community Podcast, we sat down with Keith and discussed his faith, the type of journey that led him to First Baptist, living with fun and joy, what it’s like to “go viral,” and much more. Be encouraged and experience a few laughs while you’re at it!

Our Baptism, the Final Blow to Sin

Our Baptism, the Final Blow to Sin

Do you remember the day of your water baptism? I remember mine so clearly. I was a rising freshman in High School. I had to run home between Sunday school and Worship Service to get a change of clothes. The Interim Pastor at our church baptized me. I remember thinking his white robe was so bright. I did not know that he was wearing waders underneath the robe. I nailed down my decision for Jesus to be my Savior when I was baptized. I still have my baptism certificate and a Bible that the church gave me.

The Church’s most Powerful Weapon

The Church’s most Powerful Weapon

The church is to be active and militant in this world. We are not called to sit around and wait for heaven or the Lord’s second coming. As the hymn, Onward Christian Soldiers says, “Onward Christian soldiers marching as to war, with the Cross of Jesus going on before. Christ the royal Master leads against the foe; forward into battle, see His banner go!” The church is to be weaponized, but what are the weapons that we bring into battle? The most powerful weapon we have is the most neglected. It is the weapon of prayer. In Ephesians 6:18 it says, “With all prayer and petition pray at all times in the Spirit, and with this in view, be on the alert with all perseverance and petition for all the saints,” We are to have perseverance and petition for the saints. Just do not give up in prayer, just keep praying. Tom Elliff was a Southern Baptist pastor for many years, then a missionary and then the president of the International Mission Board of the S.B.C. He is known for his amazing prayer life. Recently he wrote some insights into his personal prayer life. Let me share these 7 daily prayer points with you.
