FBC Macon

Nurture. Love. Serve. ALL.

We’re proud of our Baptist history and heritage, but we’re also proud of our diversity. At First Baptist you will find a group of people coming from a variety of different church backgrounds and denominations who have found a home at the “top of Poplar.” And while our congregation comes from all over middle Georgia, we are a downtown church and see it is our mission to be the presence of Christ to our InTown and College Hill communities here in Macon.

Parents' Night Out October 21

Saturday, October 21, 5:00-8:30 p.m.

For ages birth-grade 5.  Free of charge, but pre-registration is required.  Bring a sack supper for your child.  Click here to register.  

Shaun Kell, marriage and family therapist, will be leading an optional and brief marriage enrichment session at the beginning of Parents’ Night Out:  "In his book, 7 Principles for Making Marriage Work, groundbreaking researcher John Gottman lists the 7 characteristics that happy couples share. As an optional exercise for Parent’s Night Out, I’ll present (in 10 minutes or less, I PROMISE) the first of these 7 Principles, what Gottman calls 'Love Maps.' Essentially, a love map is knowing what is going on in our partner’s inner world. It’s a domain we often ignore in the daily press of getting things done and going to work, but we need to take time to update our love maps. I’ll provide a handout to help you get started.”   Meet with Shaun at 5:15 in the Pilgrims classroom to be a part and get your handout to discuss on your date night. 

Sunday Night Activities for All Ages Begin September 3

For the fall months (Sept. –Dec.), children, youth and adult programming is going to change from Wednesday nights to Sunday nights, with the exception of Chancel Choir rehearsal.  A Wednesday lunchtime adult Bible study will be added, giving adults the possibility for two different Bible study times during the week.   A schedule for the change is as follows:

Sunday and Wednesday Schedule Changes for Fall

Our Nurturing Faith and Belonging Task Force has been working to find ways to implement the feedback received during the visioning process related to our schedule of activities and programs, with the goal of providing time for educational opportunities as well as fellowship.  As a part of this work, we will be experimenting with a change to our regularly scheduled activities that have been held on Wednesday nights. 
 
For the fall months (September –December), children, youth and adult programming is going to change from Wednesday nights to Sunday nights, with the exception of Chancel Choir rehearsal.  A Wednesday lunchtime adult Bible study will be added, giving adults the possibility for two different Bible study times during the week.   A schedule for the change is below:
