A Word From the Pastor

Thank you for taking the time to check out the First Baptist Church website.

Surprised by my picture? It is true; we are Baptist church with a female pastor. It is unusual, but we are a different kind of Baptist church. From the moment I arrived at First Baptist, I felt at home. I admire the First Baptist commitment to building a diverse and loving community. I respect First Baptist’s long history of progressive theology, which welcomes people of every age, race, gender, economic reality and LGBTQ status, and also gives both men and women the opportunity to serve God. I love First Baptist’s creative worship services, which have great music and are often enhanced with art. Even if I were not a pastor, this is the kind of church I would want to be involved in.

We invite you to become a part of our community.

Start your journey this Sunday by visiting one of our two worship services! Join us for Awakening Contemporary Worship, which is lead by a great band and meets in our fellowship hall at 9:15 am or Traditional Worship, which is lead by a choir and meets in our Sanctuary at 11:15 am.

If you have questions about First Baptist, you can reach me at or 573-442-1149.
