Volunteer Workers Needed

     The church is made up of mostly volunteer workers. We do have a few staff members, but the vast majority of our work is dependent upon volunteers like you and me. The pandemic of COVID-19 has reduced the number of our staff and volunteers. Therefore, we are in need of persons to work with preschool, children, youth, and all age-groups of adults. Pray with us and ask the Lord to call out the workers needed. Then listen to what He says to you and follow His direction. God bless you as we push on in 2021!

To volunteer, see Pastor Milton or call the church office at (423) 775-0255.

  • Church Motto

    First......that all may know Jesus.

    This is the motto of First Baptist Dayton, TN

    taken from 1 Timothy 2:3-5.

     "For this is good and acceptable in the sight of God our Savior, 4 who desires all men to be saved and to come to the knowledge of the truth. 5 For there is one God and one Mediator between God and men, the Man Christ Jesus,"

  • From the Pastor

               Last month my article was on the need for volunteer leaders in our church. Especially the need to identify persons who would be willing to lead 3-5 others of the same gender in a discipleship group. Meeting either Sunday evening or Wednesday evening as other activities are being offered for the children and youth. We would like to start training those of you who are interested in how to lead a discipleship group. The training will begin May 16 at 6:00 pm in the sanctuary.

       I started leading such a group about six months ago and we are close to half-way through the process. We are growing in our relationship to the Lord and one another as we read the Bible together and meet every week to share what we are learning and to ask questions of one another. We pray with one another and hold each other accountable for our study and the memorization of Scripture. I enjoy meeting each week with these brothers and love seeing the transformation the Holy Spirit is making in our lives. Every true follower of Christ is called to go and make disciples – that is the Great Commission Jesus gave us before He ascended back to glory. We all need to share our faith and challenge one another to develop as mature followers of Jesus Christ. If you have already given your life to Christ and followed Him in believer’s baptism, you need to be involved in reaching out to others who do not know Him and make sure you are helping fellow Christians to become more and more like Jesus as you grow.
