Ministries

Here at Cambridge Springs First Baptist Church, we have ministries for both individuals and families.

Adult Ministries

Converse

Prayer is the essential conversation between God and His people. Without it the power, direction, and movement of a congregation is limited. The intentions of our prayer meeting on Sunday nights 7:00 pm to 8:00 pm is to ASK; that is to Ask – Seek – Knock based on Matthew 7:7 with thanksgiving and intercession at the core.

Health Ministry

This is a ministry dedicated to you and your health.  Each month we host free blood pressure screenings during our Sunday School hour for the congregation.  Do you need a ride to the doctor or an appointment to get your blood checked, but you can’t drive?  No worries, just contact the office and we will provide a ride for you.   We also provide meals for new mothers, people recovering from surgeries or for families that have lost a loved one.

Prison Ministry

Each month a group of people from First Baptist Church go down to SCI-Cambridge Springs, a prison located in our town.  They offer a worship service for the inmates.

Small Groups

These are started up on an as needed basis.

 

Women’s Ministries

Women’s Bible Study

If you are a veteran of the church then the Wednesday morning Bible Study is for you.   They meet every week at 10:00 am at the church.  In this study, you will focus on delving into your Bible for a deeper discussion of theology.

If you are new to the church, but would like to learn more about Jesus and the Bible, then come to the Thursday morning Bible Study called “Terri’s Angels”.  They meet each week on Thursday mornings at 9:30.  In this class you will learn the fundamentals of Christianity in a fun, relaxed setting.  *Currently not meeting for the summer months

Garden Room

The Garden room is open every Saturday morning from 9:00 – 12:00.  It is fully stocked with items that have been donated from people within the church and the surrounding area.  We provide mostly clothes, ranging in all sizes and genres but we also provide shoes, household items, books, and kitchen supplies.  Each item in the Garden room sells for 10 cents, but additional donations are welcome.  At the end of the year, the profits are collected and the money is donated to needy families within the area.  *If you would like to donate items to the Garden Room, you can drop off your donation at any time during regular office hours.  Please note that we do not take stuffed animals, t.v.’s, or any large items because of the space needed to accommodate such items.

American Baptist Women’s Ministries

This group meets every month of the year to fill White Cross quotas and other mission related events.

 

Children’s Ministries

Kid’s Club

Kid’s Club is held every Wednesday afternoon from 3:30 to 5:00.  This is an after school club designed especially for children that are currently in Kindergarten through the 6th grade.  The children walk down from the school after dismissal, and enjoy fellowship with their friends, crafts and singing all while leaning about Jesus and the Bible.  Snacks are provided each week.  The program ends at 5:00 pm; however, if you are willing to stay…we also provide dinner for each child and their family starting at 5:00 pm. completely FREE for everyone that attends.

Y3:16

Our Youth group here at FBC meets every Sunday evening at 6 pm to 8:00 pm.  The Youth from grades 7-12 grade enjoy fellowship, games, worship and lesson time.  We have events ranging from concerts to amusement parks, but they also learn that there is a time to serve while they do clean up days around the community.

Sunday School Classes

We provide a class for every child from 2 years of age through 12th grade.

Service Projects

Projects to help with members of the congregation and the community.  In the past we have milked cows and cleaned barns, raked leaves, shoveled snow etc.  This is a great way to give to the community.

Release Time

This is a program that allows elementary children to be released for 1 hour per week from public school for Bible learning.  It is a non-denominational curriculum that teaches God’s love and care.

Vacation Bible School  

This is a community ministry event.  The churches in the Cambridge Springs area provide one week of Vacation Bible School for all children in pre-K through 6th grade.
