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 6:15 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:

Worship September 20, 2020

*The video will premiere at 6:15 PM. The reason for the change is that YouTube has changed the times that we can schedule a video.**

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 6:15 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 Proverbs: Dr. Les Warren is continuing a new study in his Sunday School teaching with the Book of Proverbs with Lesson 8. We will be continuing these videos weekly. They will be posted each Sunday morning at 9:15 AM on Facebook and YouTube. The reason for the change in time is YouTube has changed the times that we can schedule our videos. Click the following link:

  • 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

         Many of us were surprised when we heard that Dr. Sithipol Tantihachai had died from the coronavirus he was fighting for several weeks. That news and the fact that more and more people were being exposed to the virus led the deacon body to reconsider their earlier recommendation that we start our Sunday School classes meeting again in early September. We are now going to take that process step by step before we announce we are starting up again. First, we must find out how many of our teachers and workers are ready and able to come back. Second, wherever there are vacancies we must enlist and equip others to adequately cover those responsibilities. Third, we must know how many to prepare for which will involve registering ahead of the meeting time and setting up the space available for each group with social distancing. All of these steps will call for the cooperation of the entire church body. We need your prayers and your availability to serve if you are able to do so.  

          Recently I read an article about the pandemic and the effect it is having on churches and pastors. The number one concern most pastors are facing is the division created by differing opinions about how to respond to the issues we are facing. The moment we begin to think in an “us versus them” attitude we are contributing to the division. “Do nothing from selfishness or empty conceit, but with humility of mind let each of you regard one another as more important than himself ;…” (Philippians 2:3).
