Our heart is passionate about being on mission; to serve Him and to know of the ominous responsibility it is to share to the rest of the world His greatness, joy, peace, and salvation.
Children are the most precious gifts we have at First Baptist Church. Our Children’s Ministry staff offers weekly activities that include Children’s Choirs, E Kids and Sunday School and children's worship.
L.O.F.T. 252 is our children's worship time. L.O.F.T 252 means Learning Our Father's Teachings, the verse is Luke 2:52 Jesus grew both in body and in wisdom, gaining favor with God and people. All kids from kindergarten to 5th grade are welcome!
Special events like Vacation Bible School, Children’s Day- Camp, Associational Children’s Camp, Easter Egg Hunt, and Harvest Party are held throughout the year.
A fully staffed nursery is available for all services.
FBC Okmulgee Students is an exciting place for students 7th-12th grade to discover and pursue a faith of their own. Our goal is to create environments for students to have intimacy with God, community with insiders, and influence with outsiders.
Community Groups are designed to help students deepen their intimacy with God, community with insiders, and influence with outsiders. Groups hang out every Sunday Morning at 9:30 am on the 4th floor in groups of 8-10. Check it out – and don’t forget worship at 10:30 am.
Mid-Week is an exciting environment where 7th-12th grade students are challenged to discover and pursue a faith of their own every Wednesday on the 4th floor at 6:00pm. This fast-paced, high intensity worship experience utilizes technology, live music by our student band, and straight-forward messages that address life’s tough issues.
We have ministry and fellowship opportunities for all ages of adults. From young adults through senior adults, there is something at First Baptist for you.
Our Community Groups provide a place for relationships with other people and the Lord to grow. We have Small Group Bible Studies who meet once a week to study a variety of discipleship material for personal growth and development. Contact the church office to find a Community Group near you.
Our senior adults are a busy crew! Our B.A.L.L. (Be Active Live Longer) Group meets monthly for informative and entertaining programs followed by a wonderful covered dish luncheon on the first Monday of each month. The fun begins at 11:00 a.m. Many day trips, game nights and the annual pilgrimage to Branson are just some of their activities.
Men’s and Women’s Retreats are well attended each year. These overnight trips allow time to get away and refocus. Locations and topics vary.
Music is a vital and very important part of the life of First Baptist. Our choirs and ensembles make up a huge collection of people who love to sing and praise the Lord.
Worship is the focus of our music ministry. As we worship corporately it helps us develop a heart for worship. The purpose of each musical group is to lead in worship with music that is a worthy offering to our Lord for His glory and praise. We strive to grow in spirit and skills to offer our best to Him.
Come join one or more of these groups listed below as we lead our church to worship each week and present special programs throughout the year.
