---Upcoming Events

New Worship Times

On Sunday, October 6 First Baptist Venice will offer two different worship times. All the music sung at FBCV is God-breathed and Christ-centered, however, we want to connect with all the community of believers and followers of Jesus.


Week of Prayer

The Maguire State Mission Offering (MSMO) supports Florida church planting. Together, let’s help our Florida Church Planters! Why? Because 75% of Florida’s 21 million population—15 million—do not have a saving relationship with Jesus Christ. State Goal: $830,000. 100 % of the State Mission Offering will be earmarked for church planting, church revitalization and church restarting in South Florida.

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 9:00AM. Pastor Tom will be facilitating this study. Let him know you’re coming.


Summer Connection Groups

At 9:00am each Sunday, Connection Groups encounter three letters written by Paul to the Ephesians. Together, with other believers, we will examine the spiritual realities of the life of a believer – things like salvation, redemption, adoption, as well the truth about our oneness in Christ and the mystery of the church. As we embrace these matters with resolute conviction, we then are ready to hear God’s call to us to embrace holiness and to engage in spiritual warfare. Try one of these Connection Groups.


New Commitments

Learn to keep your new marriage together in the New Commitments Connection Group. They gather on Sundays // 9:00AM // D-201.

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.
