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.
Our college students meet for Bible study on Thursday evenings at the home of Sarah and William Scruggs.
First Sunday Lunch
All college students are invited to join us for lunch following worship on the first Sunday of the month. Meet in the sanctuary following worship and we’ll pick a place!
