As followers of Jesus we are called to use whatever God has given us to serve Him and meet the needs of others, and you are invited to use your time, talents and treasures to advance His kingdom through the ministries of First Baptist Corsicana.
You may be able to lend a hand, say a prayer, give a hug, or be the hands and feet of God’s love in our community and around the world.
Many of the service opportunities are organized around a ministry team. Almost anyone can join a ministry team. In some cases, you can serve even if you are not a member.
To get started, review the lists below and then contact the Church Office. Membership tenure and a background check will be required for anyone desiring to serve with children or teens.
