The Open Church
The Open Church
Our buildings may be closed, but God’s church is open for ministry through the good work of Christ’s disciples at First Baptist Church!
To care for our neighbors’ health, First Baptist Church has closed its building to in-person gatherings for a few weeks. However, our people ARE the church, and we are still very open for ministry and service! Connect with us to worship, learn, and serve!
We are still worshiping online together. Watch worship services and join us for Virtual Church! If you know someone who does not have internet access, let the church office know, and we can provide a phone number to call in and listen to worship each Sunday morning.
The church continues in operation, and we need your generous giving. You can mail your tithes and offerings to the church office, or you may give online by clicking the link below. We also continue to raise money for the CBF Offering for Global Missions; if you’d like to donate to that worthy mission cause, please mark it in the memo of your gift.
Our church office is open from 9:30 a.m. to 3:30 p.m. each day. Need to speak with a staff member? Call ust at 276-632-6336, or email us!
We are continuing to monitor the situation regarding the novel coronavirus. Follow our updates here.
Join us for Virtual Bible study on Zoom Wednesdays at 5:00 p.m.!

How to keep the church open for ministry
Connect with your church family and community – call, email, text, or video chat. While we have to be physically distant, we don’t need to be disconnected from each other.
Your deacon will be in touch with you and will want to know your prayer concerns and needs. You also can reach out – send a note, call, and let your church family know you are praying for them. Wish them happy birthday or anniversay, or just send them a note that you’re thinking of them.
Keep Connected Via Email
Keep up with how we are continuing to be the church – sign up and receive updates via email! You’ll also receive the birthday list, the prayer list, and lots of other good information to make sure you can continue to keep the church open, even as the building is closed.
