Education Ministry and Weekly Bible Studies
The Education ministry at First Baptist offers opportunities for our members and the greater community to study scripture and discover ways to apply biblical principles to their lives at church, with their families and in all relationships. As groups meet to discuss God's Word, it is our hope that they will also build social networks which allow them to share God's love and care with an ever growing community.
As believers we are encouraged to always be expanding our knowledge of Christ and growing our relationship with God through Jesus Christ.
