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.
There are literally dozens of other opportunities for people to serve. If you have a desire to be actively involved in the work of the church, please contact the church office at (216) 932-7480 or by email.

AMOS Health & Hope
Since 1967 our church has supported missions in Nicaragua. We began by commissioning missionaries Rev. Dr. Gustavo and Joan Parajon who were Ministers of the First Baptist Church of Managua and also began several health initiatives that have transformed the country’s health care system. Following in their footsteps, Drs. David & Laura Parajonare continuing the health missions, now called AMOS Health & Hope,a Christian Public Health organization that serves impoverished rural communities. Each year FBC sends a team to support AMOS and in the past have provided earthquake, hurricane, and flood relief, and projects to provide clean, safe drinking water in rural communities.
