Welcome 

 

 

 Welcome Guests!

Whether you are looking for a church to call home, or just a church to visit while your away from home, we know it can sometimes be difficult to find the right one.  Be assured, we would love to have you join us.                             You are welcome here!

 Our Mission is simple.  "We exist for the glory of God, to introduce people to Jesus and to teach them to follow Him."  

If your looking for a "perfect" church, you will have to look elsewhere.  We are just sinners saved by grace, growing in faith ourselves, excited about what we see God doing in our midst. We invite you to join us for the journey. 

We are grateful that you would prayerfully consider First Baptist Church, Colbert. Feel free to contact us if you have questions.                                                                                                                                                                      Email: info@firstbaptistcolbert.com

Announcements 

Updating our response to the coronavirus:

Wednesday, March 25, 2020

Consistent with the Governor's declaration and with a confirmed case in Bryan County, all services have been cancelled until further notice.  Sunday Morning Worship will continue to be livestreamed on Facebook.


Our response to the coronavirus:

"Be anxious for nothing, but in everything by prayer and supplication, with thanksgiving, let your requests be made known to God; and the peace of God, which surpasses all understanding, will guard your hearts and minds through Christ Jesus."      Philippians 4:6-7

"For God has not given us a spirit of fear, but of power and of love and of a sound mind."                                                                              2 Timothy 1:7

    During these uncertain times we should:

1.  Expect Change

These aren't normal times, constant change is the theme of these days.

Services will continue to be live-streamed over facebook.  Constant attention is being given to improve the viewing experience.  Easter will be very different with a drive-up worship service being planned.  We look forward to meeting together again, but even then, some things will be changed for the benefit of all.  Praise God!!!  He does not change.

2.  Give Generously

To speak directly, we have some among us whose finances have been or will be affected negatively by these changing times.  Although we are not able to gather together as usual, the work and ministry of the church and its costs continue.  The joyful and generous giving of the entire body to the work of the church will assure that provision is made for God's work.

3.  Pray Fervently

A.  Praise God that He is still Sovereign.  He is on His throne.  Pray that we might trust Him and His guidance in these days. 

B.  Pray for wisdom for church leaders , governmental leaders and all those in positions of authority that their actions would be appropriate, strategic, and wise.

C.  Pray for God's hand of blessing and protection to be upon His church as we navigate through difficult days.

D.  Pray for comfort and healing to those who become sick.  Pray for effective treatments and a needed vaccine.

E.  Pray for our Doctors, Nurses, first responders, and other medical personnel that God might protect and empower them for their own health and the health of others.

F.  Pray that God's people might experience His promised peace and calm.  Pray for freedom from fear and panic as we trust in Him.

"Peace I leave with you, My peace I give to you; not as the world gives do i give to you.  Let not your heart be troubled, neither let it be afraid."      John 14:27

G.  Pray that the people of God would use this opportunity to share the hope we have in Christ with a helpless and panicked community and world.

A pleasure to serve God together,

Bro. Steven
