Events and Announcements​​​​​​

  • Congratulations to the new reverend, William Stoklosa, and his wife, Jessica, who have been selected to lead the church beginning this year. The people of the congregation made the choice in good faith and are grateful to have been led to them. God bless them, and may He always keep us in His hands while we move forward.

  • This September, the Friendship Club will be putting together birthday bags for the Food Cupboard. For the project, the club would appreciate donations of cake mixes, cans of frosting, paper plates, napkins, plastic silverware, and birthday candles.

  • Congratulations as well to Beth and Ron Cerow on their decision to become members of F.B.C.! They were faithful parts of the church family months before they officially affirmed their membership at the end of the service on August 11th. May the Lord always guide them as they walk with us in His grace.

​​Additional Updates

​Red Cross Blood Banks at F.B.C.

The most recent blood drive at the church was held on Wednesday, March 13th. F.B.C. hosts several of them per year.

The church hosted the Holiday Auxiliary Sale to benefit the Community Memorial Hospital on Saturday, December 1st. The sale raised more than $8,000 for the hospital.

F.B.C. members stayed after worship for the Annual Meeting on the frigid morning of January 20th​ to review the 2018 Annual Report and on the 27th, when there was a quorum, to vote on proposals.

Also on the 27th, the congregation had its last service with Interim Pastor Leon Oaks-Lee. Following worship, Hamilton's Curtain Call catered a farewell reception for him.

First Baptist friends are asked to donate peanut butter & jelly and fruits & vegetables throughout the summer months to the Hamilton Food Cupboard to ensure lunches for children who have received them during the school year and may not always have regular lunchtime during the summer. The Cupboard also asks for school supplies.
