Summer Connection Groups

Beginning on Sunday, June 02 @ 9am, we will encounter three letters written by Paul to Timothy and Titus. Each of these recipients were given the task of strengthening the churches in the areas where they lived. In each of these writings, Paul encourages them to first, be passionate about the Gospel, secondly a church leader must have his priorities in line, how to spot false teachings and finally, how to live out a Christ-centered and Christ-directed life. Don’t belong to a Connection Group? Try one of these.


Summer Worship Schedule

Beginning Sunday, June 02, we will begin our summer worship schedule. Connection Groups – 9:00am and Worship –  10:30am. We will keep this schedule until Sunday, September 29.

Get Involved Spring 2019

Our desire is for you to take the next step. Each attender is encouraged to attend one worship service, commit to a Bible study, serve the church in some capacity and then eventually begin your own ministry. Get Involved is designed to assist you in this journey. Our Get Involved page isn’t fully designed, but is a great place for you to see what ministry opportunities are available and to take a spiritual gifts assessment. Take the assessment and follow the directions to get the information to us. We are excited to see how God can use you to build His church. Today is the day to Get Involved.



We hope you enjoy your online experience and will get a taste of our loving church community. No matter what your background may be, or what season of life you are in, you are welcome here. After browsing the site you may have further questions, we encourage you to contact us. We are here for you! We strive to reach out to an incredible community of people in Sarasota County and to touch the hearts of people everywhere.



Our church celebrates “One Worship” during the summer at 9:00am on Sundays. During the fall and spring the church offers classic worship at 9:00am and a modern worship experience at 10:30 AM. We also gather for worship at 6pm for a traditional worship experience.

Connection Groups and Venice Discipleship Network


We recognize most people find a church home in a worship service, however, we believe our Connection Groups are where you will find your church family. In times of great joy or great challenges, your Connection Group will be there for you.



Serving our community should be at the heart of every church. Our passion is to get involved in the lives of people who are far from God. First Baptist offers many opportunities for you to serve the community by serving those He loves.
