130th Anniversary & Homecoming

September 23, 2018

Come and celebrate 130 years of ministry in Dayton, Tennessee! We will have Sunday School at 9 AM and Church Worship at the same time, 10:15 AM, with a fellowship meal afterwards, catered. No Evening Worship!

Here are some things on the agenda for the day:

1. We have attempted to invite all the former staff members to join us and we will recognize them during the service. 

2. We also want to survey the present membership by the number of years they have been members here.

3. A look back at our church heritage will be presented by Jim McKenzie.

4. Special musical guests, Brad and Beth Harris, have been invited to praise the Lord with us and we will look to the Lord for his guidance and direction for our future.

5. After the service we will gather in the gym for a catered meal and a time to fellowship together.

We hope you and your family will plan to join us September 23, 2018 for HOMECOMING!

*Don't be in a hurry to get away, there will not be an evening service on Homecoming day.


Your Church and Racial Reconciliation

Wednesdays at 6:30 PM

Race and reconciliation is a conversation that can be hostile and extremely polarizing. Emotions range from fear and frustration to fatigue and indifference – or even anger. But we are the Church, and God’s people are called to be peacemakers and ministers of reconciliation. Booklets will be available.  

Financial Peace University

Sunday Evenings at 6 PM

Financial Peace University is a proven program that will show you how to master budgeting, save for emergencies, pay off debt, plan and invest for the future, and live and give like no one else.  

  • 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

        For those of you who do not already know Dave Ramsey, I want to introduce you to him. Dave is America’s most trusted voice on money and business. More than 4.5 million people have attended Financial Peace University in more than 40,000 churches nationwide. His nationally syndicated radio program, The Dave Ramsey Show, is heard by more than 12 million listeners each week on more than 575 radio stations and digitally through podcasts, online audio streaming, and a 24-hour online streaming video channel. He has also authored seven best-selling books.

         By age 26, Dave had established a $4 million real estate portfolio, only to lose it all by age 30. Following his bankruptcy, Dave set out to learn God’s way of handling money. Using the wisdom he gained, he rebuilt his financial life. Dave now devotes himself to teaching others how to be responsible with money, so they can live their lives with dignity and give generously to others. You can follow Dave on Twitter at @DaveRamsey.

         For the next few months, we will be leading a time of worship and discipleship with the teaching of Financial Peace University on Sunday evenings at 6:00. I want to encourage you not to miss any of the sessions because this information has the potential to change your life. This is material that every person needs to fully understand and pass on to their children and grandchildren. I hope you will take advantage of this tremendous opportunity. God bless you as together we seek to honor Him in everything we do.
