Summer Bible Study

for Kids

Wednesdays 6:00 – 7:00 pm

The Summer Bible Study for kids, Lord, Teach Me to Pray, starts June 19th at 6:00 PM. During the summer, we will have a training facility for God's Special Forces. This is an elite team made up of guys and girls who want to know God (the Commander in Chief) and have a special relationship with Him. As part of God's Special Forces, you will be trained as a communications specialist and will

learn how to pray God's way. Prayer is our direct line of communication with the Commander in Chief, and the only training manual is His training manual, the Bible, the source of all truth. Are you up for the challenge? If so, head to the barracks (foyer) and sign up today! Training begins 06/12/24 at 1800 hours (6:00 PM).

  • 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:

    First Baptist Family!

        June is an incredibly busy time for us at First Baptist! Please make plans to attend. I hope you are as excited about the growth that we have had during the last few months.

        Sunday School is growing, with some classes getting to the point we may have move them to bigger rooms or start new classes.

        The first week of the June (2-7) is VBS Week! Even if you aren't involved with VBS, please come to VBS Family night on the 7th!

        The 16th is Father’s Day! We have some outstanding dads here at First Baptist. Come and help us honor them! No Dad-Bashing!

        Starting June 23rd at 6 pm, we will start Super Summer Sunday Nights as we go through the book of Philippians!

    In the morning service on the 30th, we will have a Patriotic Service and will praise God for the freedom He has given us and the Godly founding that our forefathers passed on.

        Please pray for your church family! Mother’s Day Out has a busy summer ahead with our new director and the hiring of at least one more teacher.

        Please pray for guidance as we seek the Lord’s direction for our next Youth/Children’s Director. Pray for the Timney’s as they make their move back home to South Carolina! The Lord has blessed them!

        Our Lord is amazing! Not only do we have forgiveness and Heaven, but He uses us in this life as well! I love you all!!

    Pastor Bob
