Dear Church,

2023 is off to a great start! Sunday was an amazing day of worship in both of our services. The rooms both felt alive with energy and five people made the decision to join our community at the First Baptist Church. Our Associate Pastor, Jim Walls and our Minister to Senior Adults, Melissa Willis visited with our friends at the First Baptist Church of Evans during their 11:00 service as we continue the journey of forging our future together with their community. I can’t imagine a better way to kick off the New Year.

Tonight, we continue to build energy as we launch our Spring Wednesday Night Bible Studies. There are a variety of different groups where you can plug in and deepen your faith in Jesus. In this email you can learn more about all the different offerings we have for the entire church!

I do want to mention that in the Chapel, I will be leading a semester long series on the New Testament. Over the course of 18 weeks, we are doing to take a deep look at each of the 27 books that make up the New Testament. If you are new to faith, but also if you have been in the church for your entire life, I am confident that you will learn more about the story of Jesus throughout this series. If you have any questions, please feel free to reach out to me via email or through the church office!

As always, I am proud to be your pastor.

Grace and Peace,
