First Baptist Church of Columbia is a vibrant community of Christ-followers striving not for uniformity, but for unity that can only come through the work of the Holy Spirit. In our call to be one as Christ has proclaimed, we seek to treat diversity with respect and love, and nurture our faith as we journey together in the work of God's Kingdom.
Our Sundays are filled with opportunities to worship God while building a faithful community. We invite you to join us this Sunday to participate in one of our three worship services and connect with one of our small group communities.
Awakening service at 9:15am
Sunday Morning Small Groups at 10:15 am
Traditional service at 11:15 am
We value our kids and students not just as the future of our church, but also the present. Our young people are invited to join in the worship and leadership of our community. Building a foundation of faith while developing a passion for Christ and the Church is essential to all of our ministry efforts.
We believe that what we do within each ministry should flow purposefully out of what we value and love. Our ministries are designed to build community and faith. We offer a mix of life stage/ affinity groups as well as inter-generational opportunities to connect the entire body of Christ.
Brittany came to First Baptist in August of 2017. After serving two years as the church’s first Pastoral Resident, she became the Interim Assistant Pastor. Brittany serves as the pastor to Children, College Students, and Young Adults. She also assists with Traditional Worship, missions, and pastoral care. Brittany is passionate about congregational ministry, and loves being a part of a congregation that promotes the message of belonging.
Brittany received her Bachelor of Social Work from Hardin-Simmons University in Abilene, Texas, and her Master of Divinity in Pastoral Ministry at Logsdon Seminary. She met her husband, Bryce, during her first seminary class and he has been her constant champion and support through school and ministry. They have a cat, Bellatrix, who loves him and tolerates her. Both Brittany and Bryce lived in Texas their entire lives (except for 6 months she spent in South Africa while studying abroad) and they love Columbia has to offer. In her free-time, Brittany enjoys reading, a good conversation over a cup of coffee, taking advantage of Columbia’s many trails, and frequenting the Cat Café.
