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.

High Attendance Day in Sunday School!

Join us on September 30 as we celebrate High Attendance Day in Sunday School.  Our special guests will be Matt and Libby Wright leading worship and after church we will have luncheon fellowship at White Oak.  Invite your friends and family to come as we study God's word together and worship Him in all His fullness!

In Christ,

Pastor Craig Bailey
