Welcome to First Baptist Charlestown 

Worship | Community | Discipleship | Mission 

June 4, 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

BABY ITEM DONATIONS:  The College Ministry will be collecting items such as diapers/wipes to take to Stearns KY as they will be working with an agency that does emergency foster placements.  Many times children will be sent with no supplies.  This will help the foster families be ready to welcome children into their homes more easily.   

Is the life of a child worth more than your spare change?   Pick up your Baby Bottle from the table in the foyer, fill them up with change, cash or check and bring back to FBC on Father’s Day, June 18th! All proceeds go to Choices Life Resource Center.  Thank you.
