Election of Officers / Annual & Quarterly Meeting

Because of Covid-19, we were unable to hold our Election of Officers in March and our Annual Business Meeting in April.  We have scheduled a combined meeting for Sunday, July 12th, following the morning service.  This will include our Election of Officers and Annual Business Meeting, as well as our July Quarterly Business Meeting.  We will also discuss moving the Missions Account into the General Account.  A Hot dog picnic (keeping in mind CDC recommendations) will also be served.  All are invited to attend but only members may vote.  Reports will be available on Sunday, July 5th, as well as a sample ballot

Thank You

Thank you, Pastor for your typical EXCELLENT personal service, to all who came, to The Kitchen Ladies and for all the Great Hugs, and of course all the Prayers for me and My Honey.





Dear friends and fellow members of First Baptist Church,

Words as simple as “Thank You” seem so inadequate when we are trying to convey to you our deep gratitude for the countless expressions of love and compassion shown to us during the past few months. Don’s unusual ailment has caused him much pain and discomfort, but a huge thank you to those who have come to assist him by providing rides to so many therapy sessions, the endless supply of “sweet treats” as well as running errands for us, many, many thanks.


Myrna’s foot situation has brought out the kindness and compassion of so many in our church family.  The delicious meals brought to our home were wonderful.  The gift of a prayer shawl from the women of the church surrounds me with the warmth of your love and thoughtfulness.  To those who were able to assist with medical issues and the grocery shoppers and deliverers, thank you for assisting in those areas as well.  For Pastor Walt’s visits and phone calls, for all the prayers prayed on our behalf, again a heartfelt Thank You.


You have shown once again that First Baptist Church has earned the reputation of being a loving and caring congregation.


God’s Blessings to all,

Don and Myrna Spease
