Pastor Search Committee to Report Results of Survey

Your participation Requested!

The Pastor Search Committee has reviewed the data from the Church Survey and is ready to share with the church family.  After church on Sunday, September 20th at 12 noon there will be a quick 30 minute or so  meeting in the sanctuary for those who want to stay, get a copy of the results, and participate in a question and answer time.   

The meeting will be repeated at 2 PM, Sunday 9-20-20 for those who want to come back after lunch for the same time of sharing.  This 2 PM meeting will be held in the Fellowship Hall.

The same meeting will also be repeated on Wednesday evening, September 23rd at 6:30PM in the Fellowship Hall. 

Members of the Pastor Search Committee will be at each of the meetings to share the results and answer questions.


The Boiler Repair Complete! 

The Boiler was fired up for the first time on Thursday, September 17th and it works!  Since it is getting cooler these days we are rejoicing!
  Thanks to Mike Holt and Roy "Buster" Jordan for all their work to handle this big endeavor.  Remember the boiler fund is still a few thousand dollars short.  You may make a contribution through the mail, at the church service, or by our on-line giving.  Please make sure to indicate Boiler Repair on your contribution.
 
The top photo is the completed boiler ready to keep us warm this winder.
The second photo is the boiler room - having been cleared of the old sections with the outer shell, ignition system, and fire box stored safely for reuse.
The bottom two photos are pictures of the new sections of the boiler waiting on the installation crew and a view of the inside of the sections (photo taken from the top of the second stack of sections.)  Our boiler is a sectional hot water boiler and provides the heat source for the entire church building with air handlers located throughout the church.  Each section weighs approximately 425 pounds.  The old sections have been removed and recycled for scrap. Those 11 old sections weighed 4,640 pounds at the recycle center.

Church Survey by Pastor Search Committee

The Pastor Search Committee has received 61 surveys telling them what you like about our church, what could use improvement, and the traits you would like to see in our new pastor. The results will be shared with the church family once the committee has an opportunity to review the data and prepare a report to the church.  This may take a few weeks before the report is ready.

 As we are still under Phase 2 of the Covid-19 precautions we continue to provide FM services  on FM 93.3  in the parking lot for your safety in addition to the service in the sanctuary for regular Sundays at 11 AM.

 

Please remember Covid-19 guidelines are in place.  Masks are now required by the state of NC. Social distancing is also required.
 
 

There is an Adult Sunday School Class meeting outside under the trees behind the church at 10 AM. You are welcome to bring a lawn chair and join them. Social distancing is required and masks are now required by the state of NC. Hand sanitizers are recommended.  Everyone is welcome - just bring your chair!


 
There will be an outside Sunday School Class for children of all ages Sunday morning at 10 AM.  Please meet under the drive through on the Dry Dock Side of the church and bring a lawn chair.  Social distancing will be enforced and parents of young children are welcome to attend with their child.

Photos from the Easter "Drive in" Service ` Sunday, April 12 at 11 AM

 


 

The weather cooperated and the parking lot filled with cars.  First Baptist held it's first "drive-in" church on Easter Sunday with Pastor Admire delivering the message and Angelynn Fox and Randy Johnson complementing the service with beautiful music.  Thanks to all who made the service successful, and especially the great job on sound by Walden Sound.  We will return to video services next Sunday, but if the pandemic continues another parking lot service will be considered for the future.


 

Sunday School and Worship Services Until Governmental Restrictions Are Lifted.

In the interest of safety and in light of the executive order by Governor Cooper to cancel all mass gatherings, First Baptist Church is cancelling Sunday School and morning worship services.  The Grief Share group scheduled for 3:30 is also cancelled.

During this service participants were given the opportunity to have a cross marked on their foreheads to symbolize repentance and to participate in the Lord's Supper. Ash Wednesday is a significant day on the Christian Calendar, denoting the beginning of the repentant period of Lent which precedes Easter. This was a Joint Service of Brookdale Baptist, Fellowship Baptist and First Baptist Churches.
Pastors officiating at this service were Rev. Jason Golden, Dr. Allen Admire, Dr. Rob Roberts.
 

GriefShare Group

Greetings from Grief-Share,

First Baptist has just launched our first Grief Share Recovery Group and we are very excited. Thursday Feb. 13th.  was our first meeting to distribute books and discuss what we can expect from our recovery group.  There were five in attendance and we expect more. Our meeting time was changed from Thursday night to Sunday @ 3:30 -5 pm.  This will allow us to meet earlier in the day and not interfere with out weekday schedule.

Currently, we are in open enrollment until Sunday March 1st. Non-church members are welcome. The cost for the course is $20 which covers the workbook. If the cost is a problem, scholarships will be available. The course lasts 13 weeks starting February 23rd until May 17th. 2020. If you are interested or have any questions please contact Pastor Allen at church office or at admireus@gmail.com
