First Baptist Church strives to be engaged in the community in a variety of ministries and outreach activities. See below for just a sampling of all we do.
We have an active music ministry including adult choir and youth choir. We provide choir specials every Sunday as well as the praise and worship music. Adult choir rehearses on Wednesday night at 6:30 PM, and Saturday morning at 10:15 AM. Youth choir rehearses on Wednesdays at 4:30 PM. All are welcome to sing in the choir. See our Music Director, Joan Sacco for more detail.

Our ministry to children begins with a staffed nursery for children ages 0-4. We have age graded Sunday School. We provide various children's events through the year. Every fifth Sunday is Youth Sunday, where our youth lead the service. We have a Vacation Bible School every summer. All children are welcome at all events.
Our Food Bank distributes on the third Thursday of the month from 10:00 AM to 2:00 PM. Volunteers are welcome to help unload the truck, bag groceries, or hand them out. See Erica Griffin for more details.
In addition to our regular church ministries, we endeavor to be aware of needs and opportunities around us. We have ministered at Oceanfest, National Night Out and the Columbus Day Parade. We are part of the Family Promise network, a ministry to the homeless. Members are welcome to serve as ushers, layreaders and board members. Whatever your gifts and interests, we will make every effort to help you find your place of service.
The Men's Fellowship meets on the third Saturday of the month at 9:00 AM for breakfast, Bible Study and minor work projects around the church. The men host the Easter Breakfast each year. All men are welcome.
