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.

Getting Involved at FBCX: Committee Nominations

At First Baptist we believe that all people are made in the image of God, blessed with unique gifts and abilities, and that part of the joy of church is naming these gifts and offering opportunities to use them.

Help our Nominating Committee know where and how you would like to share your gifts. You may also nominate someone who you feel might be called to this work by writing their name and the area of service in the space at the end.

Nominations must be made by September 23.

Committees and Servant Teams
