Welcome to First Baptist Charlestown 

Worship | Community | Discipleship | Mission 

July 14, 2024

We are so grateful you are joining us for worship today, 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. 

If you are a first time guest we would love 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 and we have a gift there 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.

There will be an informational meeting TODAY after the service for anyone interested in going on the Colorado Mission Trip!  We are in the process of planning a family mission trip to Colorado this October, and we are hoping to be able to align the dates with Fall Break for Greater Clark and Christian Academy Schools.  Our hope is to put on a pastors family retreat for SBC pastors and their families in Colorado.  It is going to be focused on providing some rest, encouragement, fun, scripture, worship, games and support to pastors, their wives and children.  We may end up also putting on a Backyard Bible Club for pastors kids while we're there!  Again this is a mission trip open to the whole family!    

The Stewardship Committee will meet today at 5:30 PM in the Library.  At 6:30 we will have our Member’s Meeting in the fellowship hall. 

Be in prayer this week as our Chaperones and Youth are at Crossings Camp!  Pray for their safety and for God to move in their life's!
