Welcome to First Baptist Charlestown 

Worship | Community | Discipleship | Mission 

  We are so grateful you are joining us for worship, and our prayer is that you would have a fresh encounter with Jesus Christ. Throughout our service, we will have times of prayer, singing, preaching and an opportunity to respond to the gospel message. At our church, we invite you to be yourself. We are imperfect people that have found 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.

Scripture Thought for the Week: “Don’t neglect to show hospitality for by doing this some have welcomed   angels as guests without knowing it.” Hebrews 13:2

WHO IS HE?...I AM  Sermon Series and Community Groups

On October 23, we are starting a new 7 Week Sermon Series called WHO IS HE?...I AM. It’s based on the 7 I AM statements from Jesus in the Gospel of John.  Along with the sermon series, we’ll be doing a 7 week Bible Study in our community groups called “I AM JESUS.”  This is an incredible study from Right Now Media. It includes a 12-13 minute starter video along with a full Bible study on each of the statements.  

4 things we’re asking you to do for this 7 week study…  

1. Try out a group for the 7 week study. We’re asking every member/attender to commit to being involved in a community group through this 7 week study.  You can join one of our existing groups (Cox, Fellows, Allen or McCoy) or host a group in your home or virtually.

2. Host a home group for the 7 week study. We are looking for individuals or families to host a group in their home. You would just open up your home and allow a group to meet there for the Bible study at a day and time that works best for you. If you’re interested in hosting a group email  Shea at shea@fbctown.com or call Sandy at 812-256-3421.

3. Invite Unchurched friends, family and neighbors to join you for this 7 week study about Jesus.  Whether you participate in a group that meets on Sunday mornings at the church building or in a home on a specific day or night of the week, invite unchurched or lost friends to be a part of it.

4. Pray. Pray for us to dive deeper into knowing JESUS and into community with one another  Pray that lost neighbors, friends, family members and acquaintances would come to saving faith in Christ.   

 

Please note: the church secretary will be on vacation next week. Please use patience when calling the church office. The answering machine will be on so please leave a message.  Thank you.
