Tools to Tackle Life’s Challenges
Faith is a journey, not a destination. At First Baptist, a commitment to adult education encourages adults to continue to work on their faith, to question, to wonder, and to set our sails to catch the wind of learning and exploration. New class members are always welcome in our adult classes, at any point in the year. Child care is provided on Sunday Morning starting at 9 a.m.
