First Baptist Church has deep ties to the colleges and universities in Macon, Mercer University in particular. in fact, First Baptist Church was instrumental in helping Mercer move from its original home in Penfield, GA to Macon.
Many of our “homegrown” students go away to colleges around the Southeast and find spiritual homes away from home. As a church located less than a mile from Mercer, 4 miles from Wesleyan College and 7.5 miles from Macon State College, we seek to be a spiritual home away from home for college and graduate students in the Macon area.
College Hill Nights
On Sunday evenings, beginning at 6:00 pm, students from across the mid-state, from undergrads through graduate school, come together for College Hill Nights, a Sunday evening Bible study at the home of Scott and Beth Walker, 265 College St. This time of fellowship, prayer, and study is laid-back and relaxed (like the Walkers!) and usually features some of Beth’s delicious, homemade desserts! Email Scott Walker for more information.
