Where Can I Serve?

Jesus told us, his disciples, to make disciples of all nations. One of the most important values of First Baptist Church is our mission to the world. It begins in our own community, and spreads overseas to every nation. 

Welcome Ministry

Our Welcome Ministry fills an important role. They are involved in directing guests to Sunday School classes, answering questions, providing direction, unlocking doors, handing out bulletins, and generally ensuring that our guests all are welcomed to our services. We also provide assistive listening devices for those of you who may have trouble hearing the sermons. In addition, our usher team is a servant-hearted group of men who assist with recieving the tithes and offerings. If you would like information about serving in this capacity, email jerrel@fbcclute.com

Media & Technology

Using media to spread the gospel is a privilege of First Baptist Church. In an age of widespread technology, we have a stewardship to use these tools as best as possible for kingdom purposes. A team of people assist in the audio for our worship services. All of our weekly sermons are uploaded to our website. We also maintain an active Facebook for additional church communication. If you are interested in serving in this ministry, email firstbaptistclute@sbcglobal.net

Mentoring & Personal Bible Study

God’s Word clearly commands us to make disciples, and to teach “all things whatsoever I have commanded you.” This responsibility is given to the church to carry out, and is done through its membership. At First Baptist Church, we equip our members to effectively evangelize and disciple through personal Bible studies. If you are interested in training to teach individuals God’s Word one-on-one, email firstbaptistclute@sbcglobal.net 

Prayer Warriors

Prayer cannot be overestimated. Prayer moves the hand of God. First Baptist Church is a body of believers dependent upon prayer, and committed to God’s sovereignty. Throughout the week, volunteers pray for their pastor, a list of church members, any special requests, and missionary prayer needs. Each Wednesday, the church comes together for a special time of prayer and Bible study.

Nursery

Our nursery is a ministry both to the children two years and under, and to their parents. Nursery care is available at all of our church services. If you are interested in serving in this ministry, please email firstbaptistclute@sbcglobal.net

Children’s Church

In order to give our children the best Bible teaching possible, First Baptist Church holds a Children’s Church service in conjunction with the Sunday morning worship service for kids 3 to 5 years. This special time gives kids more opportunity for interaction and learning in a context and manner that may be better suited to their age and learning styles. Our friendly children’s church volunteers have an endless stream of creativity – ranging from puppet shows, to games, to object lessons. If you are interested in serving in this ministry, please email firstbaptistclute@sbcglobal.net

Sunday School

First Baptist Church offers Sunday School classes to all ages. This requires an army of teachers, teaching the smallest of children to the oldest of adults. This is a large commitment, but with it comes great reward. If you are interested in serving in this ministry, please email firstbaptistclute@sbcglobal.net

Youth Ministry

Throughout the year, First Baptist Church holds events to engage the teens in our church and our community. Opportunities to volunteer include hosting a Sunday night pizza fellowship in your home, chaperoning activities and joining one of our teams that work in our Youth classes. More information is available here. If you are interested in serving in this ministry, email joshm@fbcclute.com

Church Camp Counselors

Each summer, First Baptist Church takes kids to youth camp. The week-long event involves games, a lot of preaching, great food, good worship, and the intentional influence of camp counselors. The camp counselors are selected, screened, and trained for this important camp ministry. They find that their ministry is personally rewarding, and both campers and counselors grow in the process. If you are interested in serving in this ministry, email joshm@fbcclute.com

Worship Ministry

God-honoring worship is our desire. Many church members get involved in our music and drama ministry. Some play their instruments. Others are involved in the choir. Still others get involved in drama. These volunteers are an important part of the ministry of First Baptist Church, using their talents and gifts to glorify God. For more information, click here.

Global Missions

First Baptist Church is thrilled to take part in spreading God’s kingdom around the world. We are active in sending missionaries and supporting these missionaries with our money and with our prayers. We encourage all of our people to respond to God’s call for laborers, whether it means that they move to a foreign country or live and minister in our own community.
