Ongoing Ministries

These ongoing ministries are hosted for our community and anyone is welcome.  Contact us with any questions.

  • Celebrate Recovery

    Celebrate Recovery is a Christ centered program that gives people the resources and relationships to help recover from life's hurts, habits, and hang-ups. This is a program for anyone struggling with past or current dysfunctions or compulsions, whether they are affecting their own life or the lives of those around them. The purpose of Celebrate Recovery is to fellowship and celebrate God's healing power in our lives through the Eight Recovery Principles found in the Beatitudes and Christ-Centered Twelve Steps. As we progress through the program we discover our personal, loving and forgiving Higher Power Jesus Christ, the one and only true Higher Power.   

    For more information, contact or call 816-858-2018.

  • GriefShare

    GriefShare is a time for small group video and discussion for those who have experienced loss. This group meets Wednesday nights (while in session) at 6pm on the First Baptist campus. Those interested can jump in whenever they feel ready. To learn more, find our group on the website or email Tammy.

  • Budget Mentoring

    Regardless of your amount of income, if you don't budget you will probably come up short.  Budget Mentoring is a process of setting goals & evaluating what your resources and needs are. FBC believes we are best equipped to help each other through ongoing relationships, so we meet regularly to work toward those goals.  To learn more, set up an appointment by calling the church at 816-858-2018.

  • Mothers of Preschoolers (MOPS)

    Mothers of Preschoolers (MOPS) is hosted at FBC on the 2nd Friday of each month during the school year from 9:30 to 11:30 with childcare and brunch provided. Small Group & Events are hosted throughout the month.  Registration is required.

Meals and Childcare are provided by local churches. To inquire about being referred or volunteer opportunities, email Amanda.

  • Neighborhood Dinner

    Neighborhood Dinner is an opportunity for the church to welcome in our neighbors for dinner and small groups.  On these nights, we gather for a meal from 6-6:30 and then participate in groups for serving, family and marriage workshops, and exploring faith.  Meals and childcare are provided at no cost.

    Meal Train is an email distribution list that allows volunteers to provide a meal for those who are struggling with illness or have welcomed a new baby.  Email April to join the email group or request meals for someone.

  • Serve Team

    FBC values opportunities to stand in the gap for those who are hurting and in need.  One of the ways we respond is through the Serve Team.  The Serve Team receives requests for assistance from public agencies and responds in tangible ways to help families in our community.  Email Amanda to sign up.

  • Jobs for Life

    We believe the Church is uniquely equipped to address the devastating effects of unemployment and poverty by helping people experience the dignity of work– through honest relationships, mentoring, Biblically-based training, and an ongoing community of support. Learn more by emailing or visiting
