No room in the inn?
Ah...there is room and we need you! Join us!

Our next date is May 16. If you can help on any of these dates, please let Joanne Prather know.
We are in need of supplies, such as pocket size hand sanitizers, deodorant, gloves, hats, toothpaste, toothbrushes, and sweat shirts and pants. The larger sizes (2x and 3X) go faster. If you would like to donate money, Joanne will do the shopping. We also need people to pre-pare the meals and spend the night. If you can help, please contact Joanne Prather - today!

Vision Statement
We will consistently seek to grow in our love for the Lord Jesus and to make that love evident to the world around by our worship of the one true God, loving fellowship with each other, growing in our knowledge of Scripture and walking accordingly, ministering to the needs of the ‘body’ of believers both spiritually and physically, and to make Him known by proclaiming the saving gospel of Jesus Christ as the only way for a fulfilled life and home in heaven.

A Note from Our Pastor
Dear First Baptist Church,
Matthew 28:6 “HE is not here: for HE is risen, as HE said. Come, see the place where The LORD lay.”

Greetings to you in the joy of our Risen LORD. This coming LORD’S Day we as believers come to celebrate Easter. This day is filled with praise and adoration for The Risen LORD. Please invite your friends and family to Bible Study and Worship. Let’s have a full house of souls praising GOD and rejoicing that JESUS is alive.

The Sims Family would like to thank you for your prayerful sup- port in calling us as your Pastor’s Family. We are so honored to join you in reaching souls for The Kingdom of GOD. Please know of our earnest prayers for you, and please pray for us as we join you in this journey of Pastor and Church Family.

May GOD bless you in HIS Eternal care. Looking forward to Easter Sunday, praising GOD and rejoicing in the love of JESUS. Thank you for all your kindness and prayerful support.

In HIS Service, Pastor and Nancy Sim
