“Now all of you together are Christ’s body, and each one of you is a separate and necessary part of it.” 1 Cor. 12:27 NLT
At FBC we believe every member is a minister. All of us have gifts, abilities, and talents we can share so that God’s work is done. Serving through a ministry is also an essential part of being a growing Christian. The following list includes areas that might help you begin to imagine what part you can fill in the ministry of First Baptist Church serving each other and the surrounding community.
- Cleaning Crew – Various jobs that take a few minutes to an hour. This saves the church from having to hire a janitor.
- Grounds Crew – Various jobs that include weeding, mowing, trimming trees, or cleaning up the parking lot and fence line.
- Van Drivers/Assistants – Make rounds and pick up kids for Awana on Wednesday evenings.
