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.

Lenten Offerings at FBCX


FBCX will be joining with the wider Christian community in our observance of the season of Lent with these special offerings:

Copies of the poems featured will be included with the devotional, but if you’d like to have them in book form, they can be found in Oliver’s Devotionals.
