Scripture includes: Psalm 34:15-22 and Ephesians 6:10-20

Rev. Dr. Libby Grammer will preach a sermon entitled, “Dressed for the Occasion”

In the letter to the church at Ephesus, we are told of some “strange armor” meant not to fight battles against our fellow humanity, but against the “powers and principalities” of this world. These darknesses and evils still exist around us, and our job as Christians isn’t to fight offensively. 

 

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 in 2021, whether in-person or online here – or mail / drop off your tithes and offerings to the church office. Your gifts help us to continue to minister through in-person and virtual church services, Bible studies, ministry to the community, and more.

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

Scripture includes: Psalm 34:9-14 and Ephesians 5:15-20

Rev. Dr. Libby Grammer will preach a sermon entitled, “What’s Worship, Anyway?”

Worship of God should flow from a life of serving God. Praise should be nourished by a good and grateful life. Only then can we fully experience the powerful presence of the Holy One, releasing us from our fears and worries in this world. When praise and holiness are united, we move toward lives of wisdom, filled with the Spirit, and at peace in the midst of chaos.

Scripture includes: 1 Kings 19:4-8

Rev. Dr. Libby Grammer will preach a sermon entitled, “Never Underestimate the Spiritual Power of a Nap & a Snack”

We are a busy, overworked culture. We are always looking for the next thing we *have* to do. But Elijah’s encounter with God reminds us that sometimes burnout is best cured by good rest, good food, and intentional work toward wholeness with good help. If life has broken you with depression, loneliness, or hopelessness, God says to us: stop, rest, get the help you need.

Scripture includes: Ephesians 4:1-16

Rev. Dr. Libby Grammer will preach a sermon entitled, “Unity, not Uniformity

The Body of Christ, the church, should be so countercultural that the whims of this world’s chaos and division don’t rule our relationships. Instead, we’re called to a kind of unity that requires much of us – humility, gentleness, patience. And we’re called to celebrate the diversity among us. How can we sync this harmony in our own church, appreciating one another in new ways? How can we grow in faith together and not grow apart?

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. On the first Sunday of the month, we celebrate communion, and the liturgical colors change to white to symbolize the purity and light of Christ.
