Welcome to First Baptist Charlestown 

Worship | Community | Discipleship | Mission 

May 19, 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.

First Baptist Church: on behalf of the family of Betty Thewes, we   wanted to express our appreciation for everything the church  family has done.  We loved the cards, donation of bibles, calls   and text, and all the love shown to us during this difficult time. The church also provided food after the service and it was delicious. Betty loved her church family. Thank you, Gary, Debbie and Evan

Colorado Family Mission Trip This Fall! We want to put this on your radar, so that you can begin praying.  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, and we will let you know about an info meeting coming soon!
