No room in the inn?
Ah...there is room and we need you! Join us!
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 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!
For 100 years the Lord has been using First Baptist Bemis as a lighthouse in this community. We are excited that He is moving among us in a fresh and powerful way. He is expanding our ministry andmembership while preparing us for an exciting future.
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.
