Resuming Normal Worship Services

Here at First Baptist Church, we have decided to return to church for the foreseeable future in the gym. Pastor Milton has sent out a church letter explaining the procedures we will be using for our return to church. These are outlined in the link below! We are so excited to return to church. We hope you are too!

Please follow the link to read Pastor Milton's letter to the church:

Reopen Letter

Also, scroll down further to find the link to our services online. As we are returning to church, our recordings will be posted after the service at 6 PM later in the day on Sundays.

Simulated Live

Church Services

1. Live streaming continues.  The video can be viewed on the following websites, YouTube and Facebook:

**The link will appear here on Sunday afternoons after our Sunday morning worship!!

Since we have returned to church, we will be recording the service live. We do not have streaming live capabilities yet so the videos will be posted at 6 PM every Sunday evening. We apologize that it cannot be live, but we hope that those of you that do not attend church can still join us online later in the day.

2. Sunday School Teaching, The Book of Romans: Dr. Les Warren is continuing his Sunday School teaching of the Book of Romans this week in Lesson 14. We will be continuing these videos weekly. They will be posted each Sunday morning at 9 AM on Facebook and YouTube. Click the following link:

Let's Stay Connected!

We have been trying to find ways to equip each of you to not only stay connected with the Church but also with God. 

One great way to stay connected is through our church Facebook Page. Please come visit and like our page!........FBC Dayton Facebook Page

We have created a few websites to check out some free resources. 

The first is a lot of resources for children:

Children Discipleship

The second is for adults but could also be used by teens. You know them best and can decide. But you can find it here along with a short video introducing it: 

Adult/Teen Discipleship

The Third is our Youth/Family Discipleship Page. It can be found at this link:

Youth/Family Discipleship

Lastly, we have created 3 Google forms to help us stay connected in this trying time. These links will also be provided under the live videos each Sunday morning while we are not meeting at church. When someone fills out any of these forms, an email will be sent to our church secretary so that we can add the information provided.


1. Member Contact Information Form: If you are a new member, we would like to get to know you and receive some information so that we can contact you. If you are an existing member but your information is not up to date, please update your information so that we can better connect with you!

2. Request for Help or Offer Help Form: This form is for if you need help with something in your life or if you would like to offer your help to the church to further our ministries. We are a family, and we all would like to help each other in the best ways that we can.

3. Prayer Request/Praise Form: If you have a prayer request or a praise, we would love to hear those so that we can add them to our prayer list and be praying for you!

  • 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

               We are preparing to meet again even as I am writing this newsletter article. There are still many unknowns, but we are taking every precaution suggested under the current guidelines to try to make everyone as safe as possible. We will be practicing social distancing of at least 6 feet between households. We will have masks available for those who did not bring one with them, but masks are not mandatory at this time. We do ask that you avoid physical contact with one another, so things will be a little different. We also plan to record the service and download it to You Tube and Facebook to be available for those of you who are not ready or able to come back in person for a while. We understand and support you in your decision. Please pray for one another and look after one another’s interest just as the Scriptures teach us to do. Thank you for your prayers and cooperation as we come back to together.

         The deacons and staff will continue to monitor developments as we hopefully are able to open-up more in the days ahead. Our desire is to worship the Lord and serve one another for His glory. I hope you are hearing some of the stories of what God has been doing in people’s lives during this pandemic. Many have been watching online that would not have come to the services in person before. The Washington Post reported that the number one Google search one week in May was PRAYER. God has gotten our attention, pray that we all will follow through and heed His voice. To God be the glory!


    Bro. Milton
