F.B.C. gains two members

Congratulations 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.

Summer Supplemental Food

at the Hamilton Food Cupboard​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.

Men's Breakfast a Hit!
Up to 21 men attend the Men's Fellowship Breakfast. Even though the tables are filled, they still don't run out of pancakes! The fellowship and devotion time is meaningful and the men look forward to sharing again. Men from other churches are very welcome to come to the breakfast.

Men's Breakfast meets the third Saturday of each month at 7:30 am.
