There are a number of ministries available through FBC for all ages and life stages. Most of our ministries are listed below, but there are always new things happening around FBC, so the best way to find out where you fit is to come for a visit!
Deuteronomy 6:4-7a (CSB): “Listen, Israel: The Lord our God, the Lord is one. Love the Lord your God with all your heart, with all your soul, and with all your strength. These words that I am giving you today are to be in your heart. Repeat them to your children.
We take this charge seriously here at FBC. We are committed to raising up the next generation of disciples to carry on the Great Commission.

JOY:Just Older youth
The Senior Adult Ministry is known as "the JOY Group" which stands for "Just Older Youth." We are a group of senior adults, age 55 and up. We meet once a month on the fourth Friday for our JOY meeting. At this meeting, we enjoy a carry-in dinner and some great fellowship. After dinner, we are inspired and entertained by talented Christian artists with singing and witnessing. We finish the fellowship out with our guest speaker who brings a message from the Word of God. We always have a great time of fun, food and fellowship while praising our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ.
If you are age 55 or above, come and experience the fun and fellowship at our JOY meetings. Membership at First Baptist is not required and we welcome newcomers with open arms. Our motto is "bring a dish, bring a friend." We go on several outings during the year such as the Spring Jubilee in Branson, day trip to places like Heartland Dairy/Ministry located near Bethel, Missouri, and other outings as we are able.
