   Wow, your visiting our web site. We don't take that for granted and we are honored your here. But wanted to take a moment and just give you a thought. We have three holidays coming up, Easter, Memorial Day and Mothers Day. Each of them are very special but here's the thought. Easter, Jesus gave His life shedding His blood for the forgiveness of sins and rose from the dead on the third day to set us free from the bondage of sin. Memorial day thousands and thousands of men and women gave their lives, shedding their blood for our freedom from the bondage of oppression and granting us the freedoms we have and take for granted at times. In the middle is a day to Mothers. Mother's who lost their sons and daughters in war including Mary who was there when they crucified her son Jesus. Earthly freedom came by the blood of mankind, Heaven and the freedom from the curse of sin comes from the blood of Jesus and in between are all the mothers who suffered the loss of their children. Without Easter the other two have little value but because of Easter, freedom and our mothers are priceless. Thank God for this great country, for all who have given all for it, for our Mothers who have shaped us and most of all to Jesus who has provided all of this and our salvation as well.

                                            God Bless,

                                                      Pastor Wayne Godwin

On Sunday, July 3 our church will recognize Pastor Wayne and Pam honoring them for 50 years of marriage.  Please join us in wishing them many more years. After the program we will enjoy cake and ice cream together.


Bring your family and enjoy a family fun day at 1st Baptist.  There will be a water slide and hopefully the fire engine will be on display. Also enjoy a meal of hamburgers and hot dogs.  Helping to start off the school year right, the children will receive a backpack for school. We look forward to you enjoying this day of fun.


Don't forget about our 5th Sunday activities.  We have our regular Sunday school and morning worship hour. We have calls requesting help so on the 5th Sunday of the month we collect monies to help with these requests. Your help is greatly appreciated. Following the worship service we join together for a potluck meal in the fellowship hall.  Make sure you join us as we have some really good cooks.

Then at 6:30 pm we have a special service where anyone can share their talent/gift.  You can sing, tell a clean joke, do a skit, play an instrument or other activity which God has gifted you with. This is a fun night as we enjoy one another's talents.
