Women’s Bible Study

Circumstances, people, anxiety, and even religion will attempt to steal our joy. Joy, however, is found in Christ and cannot be taken from us. The secret to living in that joy is surrender. Join Jennifer Mathewson Speer for an 8 week study of Philippians as we explore God’s design for a life of joy. Watch


Winter Concert Series | Free Event

The 2019-2020 Winter Concert Series welcomes one of Southern Gospels greatest. Since December of 1990, Greater Vision has inspired audiences with their rich vocal blend and their effective ability to communicate the message of the gospel.  They have established a firm place at the pinnacle of Christian music, and have become the most awarded trio in the history of Gospel music.


Value-Packed Parenting

It’s never too late to become a better parent. In this video-based series by Dr. David Leman, young parents learn how to raise rock-solid kids in a pleasure driven culture. Group meets in Room B216 at 10:30AM. Pastor Tom will be facilitating this study. Let him know you’re coming.


Connection Groups

At 9:00am and 10:30am each Sunday, Connection Groups encounter Old Testament stories from Numbers and Deuteronomy. Together, with other believers, we will examine the scriptures to discover afresh our need for a Savior and encouragement for living a life that honors that Savior. These books were important to Jesus and should be to us as well, giving us deeper insights into His life and death and how we should live our lives as His people. Try one of these Connection Groups.

Connection Groups // 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.
