Homecoming Letter:

First Baptist Church would like to invite you to celebrate our 130th year at a Homecoming celebration on September 29.

The place we now call First Baptist Church had its beginning over a century ago in 1889 when God touched the hearts of our church forefathers and led them to begin the process of gathering together a small body of believers and establishing a house of worship.

The early church consisted of a mere two rooms and a baptistery.  By 1927, the church body envisioned a grander, more elaborate setting to reverence the Lord and embarked on an ambitious building plan that culminated in our present building.  The first service in our present building was on July 13, 1930.

We have planned a day to celebrate these milestones.  We extend a special invitation to each and every one, current and former members and friends, for worship and Sunday dinner, and we encourage you to attend.

Our speaker for this wonderful occasion is the Honorable Joseph M. Buckner, affectionately known to us who watched him grow up in our church as Joe.  Currently he serves as Chief District Court Judge of Judicial District 15B.  He is the son of Helen Moody Buckner of Chapel Hill and the late Dalton K. Buckner.  He will bring the message at our eleven o’clock service.  Immediately following will be the covered dish Sunday dinner prepared by the ladies of our church for all members and guests.

Join us as we commemorate this auspicious occasion in Christian fellowship and offer gratitude to the One who has blessed us so abundantly.

 

In His name and for His service,

Anna Emerson, Cecilia Grimes, Becky Spence

Celebrating the Capehart Family
On July 21st, the church celebrated Pastor Tony Capehart's 10 years at First Baptist.  The Fellowship Hall was overflowing and extra tables had to set up to accommodate the crowd.  Friends and church members brought cards and gifts of well wishes for the Capehart Family. We have all enjoyed watching the children grown into the lovely young adults they are today.   Tony, Kim, Charis, Cullen, Scott, and Sara Ann have given so much of themselves and added so much to our church over their time here.  Thank you all and we wish you well.

Celebration at First Baptist - New Choir Robes
Sunday, June 30th 
The choir and Director Randy Johnson would like to thank all who contributed to the new choir robes.  The robes replaced ones that were likely over 30 years old.  The new robes have two stoles which are reversible allowing four colors to be used.  The first one used are the blue ones pictured on the choir. They are also cooler to wear and all have zippers that work!  Thanks again to everyone who contributed.
