Our Church Life
First Baptist Church is located on the corner of Washington and Sugnet streets in Midland, Michigan. Sunday Worship begins at 9:30 am and Sunday School begins at 11:00. Infants and toddlers may be cared for in our nursery during both Worship and Sunday School.
Our membership has diverse tastes in both worship style and music. Lay Leaders participate in leading worship, telling the children's story, making announcements, and leading our Children's Church. Occasionally, Lay Leaders lead the pastoral prayers and preach.
Hearing receivers are available in the Sanctuary. DVDs of services are delivered to shut-ins and available to anyone upon request.
We have an active and growing Youth Group. It consists of youth from sixth through twelfth grade. The group is divided into Middle School and High School.
The church has a good relationship with the community. Our facilities are used by a Chinese School, the local Alcoholics Anonymous, Plymouth Elementary School, Boy Scouts, Campfire, Campus Life JV, and a basketball tournament. Members are involved in giving Network, Christian Women In Action, Care CROP Walk, Emergency Food Pantry Network, Fresh Aire Counseling Network, Habitat for Humanity, House of Mercy, Midland Area Homes, Open Door, Samaritan Counseling Center, SHARE program, Shelter House, Young Life and many other local service organizations. We also share with those in need through our Deacons Fund.
