Video of Sunday, May 24th service
We do apologize that the recording of the church service at First Baptist did not get posted yesterday. Pastor Allen Admire was left on his on to do the video of the service, the editing of the video, and the uploading to YouTube. Let's all give him a great big thank you for that super effort. He did have some technical difficulties and they caused the delay in posting. Also, there are a few issues with the sound - it is better in some spots than in others, but we wanted you to be able to have the link we promised.  Click HERE to follow the link to the service.

 

Exciting new option for giving coming soon! Stay Tuned!

      We are excited about the new things happening at First Baptist through our online community. You will be able to securely give through our website using a credit card or having the contribution taken from a bank account, or you may give via text. There is also a free mobile app available.  Some members already have access to our church database, your Realm Account.  Many of you received a sign on and set up a password around 2017 when we implemented use of the Realm System.  If you remember that, you can go into your account and click on the giving tab and begin giving. You can also review your giving history on this same tab.  If you don't have access and would like access, please contact the church office. We’ll then email you with a Realm Invite so you can get started today.  Also, you can give as a guest if you do not have an account, but it would be better to sign in and use your realm account if you give frequently.  Please remember that online giving does incur a small fee for the church (the same way a business pays a % when you use a credit card).  However, if you find the on-line giving convenient, especially during this time of Covid-19 isolation, please feel free to use the service.  

Contact the church office at 919-742-4310 or fbcsilercity@connectnc.net

Please remember during this time of stay-at-home and Covid-19 Amanda is working from home part of the time. 

Send an email or leave a voice mail if she is not in.

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.


 On-Line Giving

First Baptist Church is in the process of setting up the option for on-line giving.  Many people currently pay some of their bills on line and will be very comfortable having their tithes and offerings paid through an on-line service.  During this time of no mass gatherings and social distancing, the on-line giving will allow you a new way to make contributions. More information will follow next week. You are reminded that it is always possible to mail your contributions to the church office.  We may not be able to meet in person, but the expenses of the church are still on-going.  The church's mailing address is:
First Baptist Church
314 N Second Avenue, Siler City, NC 27344

  Your Contact Information

During this uncertain time we are continuing to expand the ways that the church can reach out to you.  Some of you have been receiving emails from the church through our software system, Realm.  We can only send out these communications if we have your current information.  If you have received the email letter from Pastor Allen, we have your email address.  If you have not, and would like to receive updates from the church, please send your email address to this email address:  fbcsilercity@connectnc.net
This is also a great time to send us any other information that needs to be updated - maybe you have a new cell phone number, eliminated your land line phone, or moved.  If you have, please include this information in the same email.

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
