Food Service Ministry

When you look across the Fellowship Hall during a meal and see our members sharing, encouraging, supporting, and enjoying each other’s company, it is evident what an important part our Food Service Ministry plays in the First Baptist Church community. We believe food provides the perfect opportunity for fellowship among our church members, visitors, and guests.

Our Food Service Ministry seeks to support the other ministries of the church by providing high quality meals prepared in a professional, licensed kitchen. We also are available to reach out in the community to provide meals for other ministries as well as secular groups.
