We believe a local church should seek to lead people into a deeper relationship with Jesus Christ. Our priority is to make disciples who make disciples.
We currently offer Sunday School/Bible Study on Sunday mornings at 9:45 AM. We have an Adult Couples class, a Women’s class, Men’s class, a Youth class, Children’s class, and Preschool class, and Nursery.
WORSHIP & MUSIC
We have multi-generational blended worship consisting of a traditional hymn and contemporary worship songs. Our children and youth worship with our adults in a family setting.
After the anthem in worship, our children go to Worship Kidstyle, another video-driven extended session from their Sunday School lesson.
Our youth remain in worship on Sundays. The Underground is our youth ministry that currently meets once a month on the third Sunday of each month.
We stress congregational prayer. On Wednesday evening at 7:00 PM, we have Mid-week Prayer. Our pastor brings a short devotional (often related to a prayer concern he has for our church), we take prayer requests, and spend time together in prayer. Our primary prayer concern: to discover God’s direction for us. We open and close mid-week prayer with traditional hymns.
Our Women’s Ministry is an intentional gathering of women who love the Lord, who want to celebrate life together, hold one another accountable, pray for one another and be involved in mission action.
The purpose of our Women’s Ministry is to meet the spiritual, physical and emotional needs of women at FBCD and within our community. To encourage women to grow in their faith in Christ, to develop and strengthen intimate friendships with other women and to provide opportunities to serve and reach our community for Christ. To be a source of support, love and outreach, to be disciples for our Church and Community, actively living our lives for the Lord. To pray for one another and for all women in our community, that they may come to know and accept Christ as their personal Savior.
We would be honored to have you join us on the first Thursday of every month at 7:00 pm. We meet in the Ladies Classroom. For more info please call Sherry Jewell, 517-669- 2003.
firstconnect class — quarterly
Do you want to know more about our church? This class is currently offered on a quarterly basis. We tell the history of First Baptist-DeWitt, explain our mission, vision, expectations of members, and how to become a member. No reservation is needed, just drop in. And there is no obligation or pressure to join FBC after the session. It’s all information. You make your decision after you prayed about it. Classes meet in January, April, July, and October. Email us at firstname.lastname@example.org if you have any questions.
We believe deacons are partners with the pastor in ministry and growth. Our families are assigned to a deacon. We also have Yokefellows (Philippians 4:3 KJV) who are deacons in training working alongside the deacons. Deacons and Yokefellows meet monthly for training.
We want your experience with a church to become an essential part of your life. We’ve come to believe that for a church to be essential, members need to be involved in a Bible study group/Sunday School class, attend worship weekly, attend one or two short term discipleship studies in a year, and be involved in a ministry either within the church or a church sponsored ministry in the community.
