If you are new to First Baptist, you may wonder how the church makes decisions and gets things done. The answer is through two service groups: committees and ministry teams. These groups are coordinated by another group called the Committee on Committees (that’s the truth). The Committee on Committees develops guidelines and, in some cases, appoints members for these service groups.
The first service group is the Committee.
The second service group is the Ministry Team.
In addition, you may get involved with various mission opportunities that we support.
