The Big Serve
Sunday, March 30
After the Fifth Sunday 9:00 am combined worship service
The Big Serve is back!
On Sunday, March 30 we'll worship together at 9:00 am in the Sanctuary. Then we will all serve together as we assemble food packages in The Crossing. We'll pack from 10:30 am – noon and then we'll enjoy fellowship at a Celebration Meal. We are once again partnering with the Salvation Army to distribute those packages to local families in need.
Sunday School Classes and other small groups are encouraged to serve together. If you're not connected to a group this will be a great opportunity to get to know others as we serve our community together.
If you would like to be involved in the planning for the Big Serve, contact:
Discover First Baptist
Your Introduction to
First Baptist Church at Savoy
This class is the first step of our membership process, but it is also open to those who are just interested in learning about First Baptist Church at Savoy. Discover First Baptist is a four-hour class providing a basic overview of who we are, what we believe, our vision for where we're going, and how you belong. The pastors will answer your questions, and get to know you a bit better at the same time. We'd love you to join us. Come learn about First Baptist Church—a family where everyone can worship, grow, and serve.
The next scheduled class:
Sunday, May 4
The class will begin at 9:30 am during the Sunday School hour and then continue, with lunch, after the 10:45 am service.
Anyone is welcome to attend with no obligation.
Would you like to be part of the Sunday services at FBC? We need volunteers to help fill some key openings on our Sunday Morning Worship Team.
The Worship Band is in need of some musicians. We are looking for trombone players and drummers. Please contact Pastor Chris at (217) 352-2240 or if you are interested in playing.
There is also a need for a few people to help operate our Media Shout system during the worship service. You do not have to be a tech expert to volunteer. Training will be provided to help you learn the system. Call the church office at (217) 352-2240 if you are interested in this opportunity
Get Involved with the FBC Food Pantry
Our Food Pantry needs your help delivering food to hungry families in our area and it's simple to get involved:
- Just pick up the food from the church,
- Stop by a participating grocery store to grab some fresh items,
- Deliver the package to a local family.
There's no cost to you, and you can schedule pick-ups and drop-offs around your schedule.
The Early Childhood Team
We'd love to have you as part of our Early Childhood Team serving the needs of very young children and their families at FBC!
- You will love watching young children take first steps or hear Bible stories for the very first time;
- You'll be captured by the wonder and surprise they exhibit as they learn new things;
- Parents, if you have a child in this ministry, we'd love to have you serve at least once a quarter—it's a great place to get connected with others.
There is a place for you on our Early Childhood Ministry Team: Nursery, Toddlers, Preschool, and Children's Church. If you are interested, just talk to one of our volunteers serving in these rooms or contact Kirk Hawthorne at (217) 352-2240 or at .
