Scriptures include:  Genesis 32:22-31 and Luke 18:1-8

Rev. Dr. Libby Grammer will preach a sermon entitled, “Stubbornness is Next to Godliness”

So often we are taught to consider faith as something we passively receive, given by our ancestors in the faith; it’s just something we agree to. But if we are taking our faith seriously, we recognize that we are not called to sit by and hope God will find us. In this week’s scriptures, we are reminded that our stubborn persistence in seeking God or refusing to let go of God are hallmarks of what it means to be willing, with force, to be wholly made new by God.


This is the season after Pentecost in the Christian year. Having celebrated the “birthday of the church” through the giving of the Holy Spirit on the Day of Pentecost, we enter the Season after Pentecost for 24 weeks, to celebrate the existence of the church and recall her mission in the world. The liturgical color for the season is green, symbolic of the church’s growth and mission. 

Giving of our Resources

Please continue to give generously to the ministries of our church. You can give in person in the offering plate, online here, or mail / drop off your tithes and offerings to the church office. Your gifts help us to continue to minister through church services, Bible studies, ministry to the community, and more.

Thank you for providing for the mission and ministry of First Baptist Church!
