Updates about all that is happening
Not always are people able to get to know others in a worship setting. In 2018, the Church Coordination Team and Julie Davis, chair of adult ministries, will be hosting an after-service lunch for families to come together and celebrate.
The first event will be Sunday, March 18, immediately following second service in the party room at Mancino’s Pizza and Grinders. The whole family is welcome to come. People will order in line as all customers do and then eat in the “party room” with others from church. There will be a fun way to get to know others as well as see others with whom we are more familiar.
You must have a reservation to attend. Get this on your calendar and watch for a link offering you a place to sign up.
The February Visitor is available online. You can download it here
Community-wide Lenten services are held each Wednesday through the season of Lent. Remaining services are as follows:
A fellowship meal is offered in the Fellowship Hall downstairs. A donation of $5.00 per person is suggested to defray expenses. A Good Friday service will be noon March 30 at Union Missionary Baptist Church, so there will be no Wednesday Lenten service that week.
During the month of February, First Baptist Church will be conducting a food drive to benefit Second Harvest Food Bank. Second Harvest provides food, educational opportunities, and financial advice for people in need for eight counties in East Central Indiana. We will be collecting food on February 11, 18, and 25. Financial donations may also be made.

Later this Spring, a team of FBC ladies will be hosting a “tea party” for women and girls and their guests. A feature of the event will be a chance to have quilts evaluated by a quilt expert. Stay tuned for more information!
The Soup Kitchen of Muncie will have its Annual Dinner and Auction on March 24, 2018, and is seeking donations of frequent-flyer miles or timeshare stays. Click here for more information.
