From the Shepherd's Heart

Dear Friends,

We have had a stressful spring season at First Baptist with a number of difficulties hitting our church family.  We have experienced losses through death and families moving away.  Our county continues to face tough times after the abandonment of the two nuclear reactors under construction and the sale of White Oak Conference Center.

But we are certain that God has His church on mission in Fairfield County for a reason.We are prayerfully seeking His guidance as we adjust to the changing circumstances around us.  Currently, we have three part-time ministry positions open at our church.  If you have accidently come upon our website to read this article, would you take a moment to pray that God would send laborers into His harvest field here?  

As we are prayerfully seeking a worship leader and those who might help us in children's and community ministry, I am reminded that God still wants the people of Fairfield County to know Him.  Help us to pray and seek His will in these areas.

Back to School Sunday!

Join us on August 12 as we celebrate "Back to School Sunday."  Our special guests will be The Change Band.  As everyone finishes those last vacations and gets ready for a new school year, we want to encourage everyone to get back to Bible Study and Worship, so come join us for a great day of worship to kick off the new season!

In Christ,

Pastor Craig Bailey
