BELL RINGERS NEEDED!
This spring we are bringing back the Bell Choir, one of Bob Schneider’s favorite music-making ensembles here at First Baptist!
But we can’t do bell ringing justice without bell ringers. For a variety of reasons the ranks of the Bell Choir have been reduced, so we are looking for dedicated individuals, preferably who can read music (although there are wonderful bell ringers who don’t read music) and who could dedicate time for a one hour rehearsal from 6 to 7 PM each Thursday evening, and perform in a Traditional Worship Service about once a month.
The rehearsals are lead by our Music Director Stephanie Price in the balcony in the back of the Sanctuary. Rehearsals, with a very congenial group of ringers, are enjoyable to be with, to say the least.
So give joining the Bell Choir some thought. In fact, don’t even think about it. Just come on out on a Thursday evening at 6 PM and give it a try. The 100th Psalm says in part, “Make a joyful noise unto the Lord, all ye lands!” That would be YOU playing bells! Give it a try. You won’t regret it!

Ownership of this magnificent 325-acre Christian camp is split evenly among the Cleveland, Akron, and Ashtabula Baptist Associations. Therefore, as a member of CBA First Baptist is a part owner. In years past First Baptist held an annual Saturday-Sunday weekend retreat attended by as many as 50 members, families, and friends. The Camp is a wonderful asset for young and old alike. Weeklong camps for Elementary, Junior High and Senior High kids, and for Special Persons, includes Horseback Riding camps for all ages. Check out the website christiancampohio.org or go the Camp’s Facebook page at facebook.com/Koinoniacamp1, today!

One of First Baptist Church’s most beloved annual traditions, our living nativity brings to life the Christmas story into our sanctuary with a large host of live animals, choirs, soloists, musicians and the newborn baby Jesus. The church fills up as we celebrate with traditional hymns and new selections of music, as we participate together in the celebration of the birth of Jesus.
