 Do you want to help make a difference in the lives of people? There are many meaningful ways to serve!

 First Baptist has many teams that work together to minister in the church and serve our community:  


Worship Team leads the contemporary worship celebration.  The team practices on Wednesdays at 7:00 p.m.

Choir sings during the classic worship service. Rehearsals are scheduled on Thursday evenings at 7:00 p.m.

Orchestra accompanies the hymns and plays classical music during the traditional worship celebration.

Hospitality Team offers a warm welcome, hosts the cafe, and makes sure everyone finds a seat for worship.

Media Team coordinates the sound system, sanctuary lights, and video projection during Sunday worship.


College Lunch helps make the church a "home away from home" for students. Teams prepare lunch on selected Sundays. 


HUB Youth Ministry volunteers help lead student worship, guide small groups, mentor students, drive vans, and lots more.

KidsWorld Teams lead children's worship, shepherd small groups, teach classes, help at check-in table, etc.

Child Care volunteers serve on rotating teams to provide loving care in a safe environment for our precious children.

Food Pantry volunteers help sort food and distribute groceries. Food Pantry provides food for 130 families a week.

Homeless Shelter volunteers greet our guests, help prepare food, serve meals, and assist the staff.


Campus Teams work together to maintain our church facilities and improve our church campus.


Office Volunteers help our church administrator to prepare worship bulletins, church brochures, campus signs, etc.

Mission Teams serve locally and globally to meet needs, share God's love, and spead Christ's message.


Meal Teams prepare food for people in crisis, families with a new baby, and church activities. Do you enjoy cooking?


Visit Teams reach out to welcome people who visit the church and take communion to people who cannot attend worship.

Prayer Teams pray for our church throughout the week and receive prayer requests from our church family.


Each person should use whatever gifts he has received,
faithfully sharing
God's blessings in their many forms.
