Unified service

This Sunday, April 19, will be David Brown’s final service with us, as he finishes his interim ministry at First Baptist Church.  To commemorate his ministry these past 14 months, we’ve planned a unified service followed by a town hall meeting and lunch.  The town hall meeting will include the presentation of a modified purpose statement for the church, a report on the progress of the Pastoral Search Committee, and plans for continuing with worship and preaching in the months ahead.  Child care will be provided all morning long, and people are encouraged to bring a salad or dessert to share as part of the lunch.  Please join us as we celebrate this important milestone!

Back To Broadway Gala – April 17, 8 PM
