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.

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.

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

               During the pandemic I have had the opportunity to participate in many online events. Training events, webinars, ZOOM calls and meetings, as well as several other things I have not done before. Maybe you are not looking for another online experience, but I want to encourage every man in our church family to consider being a part of the Promise Keepers Virtual Conference July 31 – August 1. The details are on the front of our newsletter and all the information is available on their website. It is a free event, but you will need to register this week as soon as you can. They are asking for a donation to help offset the cost if you are able to do so. The line-up of speakers and musical guests is outstanding. I have never been to a Promise Keepers event when I was disappointed with what the Lord had to say to me through them. There is a whole new generation of young men who have not had such an opportunity as this. I truly believe the Lord will use this event to call many men to Himself. Ladies join me in praying for the men of our church and community as God speaks to us.  

               A little later this year, I would like to invite our brothers in Christ across our community together for a men’s meeting at our church to view Tony Evans’ film - Kingdom Men Rising: No More Excuses. I watched this several weeks ago and it is definitely a message that men need to hear. God is working in all the turmoil and confusion that is going on and nothing is going to thwart what He is going to do through His people!
