Wednesday Family Night--LAST SESSION IS APRIL 13TH
You can learn more about Wednesday Family night here. But during our spring session there are two classes available for adults starting at 6 p.m. L.I.F.T (Ladies in Faith Together) are exploring different stories of the Bible. There is no book or cost for this class. It will be facilitated by Beth Hanes, as different stories are chosen and discussed among a group of great ladies. You can read more about L.I.F.T below under 'Women's Groups'. The second option will be the small group on "The Person and Work of Jesus Christ." This group will be led by Rev. Ed O'Rear and will focus on Christ the person, the prophet, the Priest, and the King concluding with his humiliation and exaltation. There is no cost or book for this class.
Thursdays hold many opportunities for adults to come together. At 10:30 a.m. the Handbell choir meets in the sanctuary to practice. They offer special music on Sundays occasionally. They are directed by Pam Defries. At 12 p.m. TZL (Thursday Zoom Lunch) meets with Pastor Janet over zoom, to enjoy lunch, catch up with everyone, and have a short lesson. TZL is put of the senior ministry, but all are welcome to join. At 7:00 p.m. the Chancel Choir meets in the sanctuary to practice. They sing up front on Sundays and occasionally offer special music as well. They are directed by Rick Kready. If you're intersted in any of these please contact the office.
R.O.M.E.Os (Retired Old Men Eating Out) meet every Friday morning at 7:00 a.m. at Perkins on Wanamaker Rd. They discuss life and religion among other things. This is a great time for our older men to come together and have a time of their own. Please contact Walter Schoemaker or the office for further information.
First Baptist Church is luckily to have a thriving community full of women and provided several groups for our women to attend. These groups usually meet weekly or monthly and have various events that take place throughout the year.
