Adults

College and Career

The College and Career group is for anyone who is out of high school and unmarried. We provide a great opportunity to meet and interact with other young adults and to grow together in the Lord. Here is a summary of who we are and what we do as a group.

Sundays:

Bus Ministry:

If you require transportation and you live at or near the Universities, check the bus route schedule for pick-up/drop off times and locations.

Sunday School:

Why not join us for Sunday School at 9:45am? No time for breakfast? Snacks, coffee and tea are available. Our format for the morning is designed to encourage fellowship and spiritual growth. The emphasis of the bible studies are designed to engage us in our relationship with Christ. We can become apathetic and religious in our relationship with Christ. We trust that God will use this time together in His Word to discover and experience an abiding relationship with the Lord Jesus Christ. We trust you will leave the class with a fresh passion for God and better equipped to live for Him.

Morning Service:

During the morning worship service most of our group sits on the piano side of the auditorium. Please feel free to join us at 10:50am.

Evening Service:

The Evening Service begins at 6:00pm. It is more intimate and casual than the morning worship service.

Other Activities

After-Service Fellowship:

This is a great opportunity to just hang out and get to know each other. These are uplifting times of conversation and refreshments with like-minded people. These fellowship times take place at one of our homes following the Sunday evening service. We meet regularly; at least two or three Sundays a month.

Social Events:

Be sure to also check our church calendar on our website for "C&C Socials." You're sure to have a great time! We try to have a special event planned once per month to encourage growing friendships, spiritual growth and a time to just get away from it all.

Builders

The Builders Ministry is a place where young adult couples are encouraged to:

  • Grow daily in their love for Jesus Christ
  • Demonstrate the love of God within the group
  • Welcome and show acceptance to newcomers
  • Support each other in their personal relationship
  • Mentor one another as they encounter challenges
  • Fellowship together on a regular basis

Why not join them each week at their Sunday morning Bible study during our Sunday School hour beginning at 9:50am.

Why not join them in any of their organized social events which occur at various times throughout the year.

Check out the 'Upcoming Events' calendar to the right of this page for a list of planned up-to-date events.

Women’s Ministries

These ministries encourage women of all ages from our congregation to come together as a team to passionately serve the Lord Jesus Christ, using their gifts and talents while ministering to other women within our local church and surrounding community.

Relationships are built among the women in our church: between the young and the more mature, those who have common interests and goals; and between women possessing different spiritual needs. This has proven to be an effective way for women to connect, share life experiences and grow in Christ.

There is a passion for those who do not know Jesus Christ as their personal Saviour, and a desire to give the women of our surrounding communities a reason for the hope that is in us. Women are the heart of the home - by reaching them, their families are reached.

Seasonal Events

Our Ladies’ Ministry Committee endeavours to plan seasonal events such as Ladies’ breakfasts/brunches or dessert nights to encourage fellowship and interaction between the ladies who attend. It is also our desire to make sure that speakers at these events will have a clear testimony of salvation and will encourage the ladies who attend spiritually and meaningfully.

Bible Study

Why not join in this weekly informal and interactive ladies' Bible Study meeting on Tuesday mornings at 10:00 a.m. Nursery is provided for those moms with young children. Fellowship Hall on Tuesday mornings is a great place to be for a time of Bible Study, encouragement, support and fellowship!

Prayer Time

Each Tuesday afternoon, from September to June, ladies meet for prayer at 1:30 p.m. They gather to praise God, and to pray for each other and for the needs of our church, our shut-ins, our missionaries, our country and its leaders. Ladies of all ages are encouraged to be part of this small group prayer time.

Ladies' Sports Opportunities

As a part of the overall women's ministry outdoor sports activities complement the spiritual ministries. We have recently begun a Ladies’ Drop-In Volleyball night at the church (2nd and 4th Tuesday of each month). This is a great opportunity to connect with women and invite friends to play non-competitive volleyball as well as build relationships.

Men’s Ministries

Where are the Godly men of this generation who fear God more than men, and who will imitate Christ no matter where they are or who they are with? Men need to live lives that are uncompromising and full of integrity. This ministry desires to provide an atmosphere where men can develop these Biblical qualities and where men can grow in their desire to be sold out to Christ!

Men of Honour Conference

This is an annual conference that usually takes place over a weekend in the Fall of each year. Good speakers are brought in to spiritually challenge the men who attend, while at the same time, men enjoy good food and fellowship together. Check the "Upcoming Events" to the right of this page or on the home page for the date of this year’s conference.

Men's Small Groups

Get connected with the men of First Baptist Church in one of our men’s small groups. Groups are small in size and designed to encourage men to go deeper with God’s Word, keeping in mind the importance of its practical application in their lives. This ministry is a great way to develop lasting Biblical friendships to encourage one another in their walk with God.

Men's Prayer Time

Join the men for this time of prayer and intercession that is held each Tuesday morning at 8:30 a.m. Men of all ages are encouraged to be part of this small group prayer time.

Men's Breakfast

Why not join us at one of our informal Saturday morning breakfasts. Be blessed by the time of fellowship and be challenged by a short devotional from God's Word, a missionary presentation, or personal testimonies.

Men’s Sports Activities

Throughout the year there are numerous sports activities in which the men of the church actively participate. Current activities are:

  • Hockey - Like hockey? Join the men of the church as they participate in the local church ice hockey league and help keep fit during the winter months.
  • Floor Hockey - Why not join this time of fun and exercise in the church gymnasium during the fall and winter months.
  • Slo Pitch - There are two teams that compete in the local church leagues. So why not join the men as they participate in these games during the late Spring and Summer months.

Super Sixties

Each Friday morning at 9:50am (from September through May) there is a lively informative program held in the church gymnasium and you will find seniors from First Baptist and other churches in the area meeting for a time of Christian fellowship and fun.

The program usually consists of:

  • Devotional Segment - from a pastor, missionary or lay person
  • Vocal and/or Instrumental Music - from talented individuals, choirs, bands and groups.
  • Special Presentations - from social and health agencies, politicians, education leaders, business people, special interest groups
  • Nourishing Lunch - served at noontime

There's no charge to attend or participate in the program - just a freewill offering to help offset the costs.

The Super 60's also organize other activities such as multi-day bus tours, bus day trips and mystery tours, where they just enjoy an extended time of fun and fellowship.

So why not come, bring a friend and enjoy the great fellowship, fun and food on Friday mornings. Free parking is available at the church.
