First Baptist ChurchWichita Falls, TX

A Message from our Pastor

Summer is certainly in full swing at First Baptist Church.  We just finished a very successful week of Vacation Bible School under the capable direction of Sherrie Carter.  At Vacation Bible School over 70 children prayed to receive Christ.  This week our senior high students are at Beach Week in Destin, Florida. 

Summer is also a season that allows us time to do some much needed work on our facilities.  Our big project this summer is renovation of the gym/Fellowship Hall area.  Our Properties Committee has worked to make improvements in many areas of our downtown campus over the past few years.  But this is one of our most ambitious projects.  Our plan and our prayer is that the work will be completed before we restart our fall program at the end of August.   

New lighting has already been installed in the gym.  New, energy-efficient, quiet heating and air conditioning units have also been installed.  The walls will get a fresh coat of paint.  New flooring is on the way for the fellowship hall and new athletic flooring for the gym.  There will be new basketball goals in the gym.  The old stage area of the fellowship hall will be reworked into much needed storage space.

Faithful, generous giving to the budget of our church is what allows us to engage in life changing ministry like Vacation Bible School and summer camps.  Your faithful giving also allows us to maintain the kingdom investment in our facilities.  Let me encourage you to continue in your faithfulness to your church.
