Welcome to First Baptist Charlestown 

Worship | Community | Discipleship | Mission 

April 2, 2023

We are so grateful you are joining us for worship, and our prayer is that you have a fresh encounter with Jesus Christ. Throughout our service, we have times of prayer, singing, preaching and an opportunity to respond to the gospel message. At FBC, we invite you to be yourself. We are imperfect people that have hope in a perfect God, and we want to shine the spotlight on Him. 

In order for us to connect with you, please complete the Connection Card located in the pew. At the end of service, please take it to the kiosk in the Connection Center as we have a gift for you.  Also, we have free Bibles available in the Connection Center if you need a copy of God’s Word.   

 Mission/Vision of First Baptist Church:  We exist to see the hope of Jesus Christ transform Charlestown by providing every person with an opportunity to hear and respond to the good news of Jesus and equipping them to grow up into maturity in Christ.   

 At FBC we believe that when Christ calls us to salvation, He also calls us into community with one another to pray, apply Scripture to real life, encourage one another,  serve and share Jesus together.  We currently have the following community groups available:

Sundays at 9:30 am:  Adults, Parents of Pre-Adult Children, College Students/Young Adults, & Senior Adults

Wednesdays:   6:30 pm—Adults in Fellowship Hall

Thursdays: 10:30 Women’s Community Group in the FBC Library   

 Join us this evening at 6:30 PM for a Night of Prayer.   

Women on Mission will meet tomorrow morning, April 3rd at 9 am in the fellowship hall. All ladies are invited to attend!   

Our community groups are in the middle of a 6 week video study called Tell Someone: You Can Share the Good News. This study teaches all about Biblical principles that can be applied to help every Christian “Tell Someone” about Jesus. Check your email for a link to sign up.  If you would like to help with the purchase of the study books, you can donate online using “Tell Someone Books” as the designation ($5 suggested donation) .
