The youth ministry is committed to the spiritual growth of students through Bible study, discipleship, worship and fellowship. It is our desire to help students grow beyond the milk of God's word to the meat so that they can become all that God desires for them to be. As they discover how God has gifted each one of them, we want to help them find places of ministry to use the gifts and talents that God has given them.
Worshippers of all ages make a joyful noise to the Lord here at FBC. The adult choir meets on Wednesday evenings at 7:00. Music reading abilities are not necessary, but appreciated. All that's required is a heart for worship. Youth are encouraged to sing with this group as we rehearse praise and worship music as well as more traditional choral music.
Community English Classes, an outreach of First Baptist Church, is an adult literacy program for English language learners in the Blanco community. Our goal is to provide support and instruction in English while intentionally demonstrating and sharing God’s love.
To minister to the needs of the whole family and to increase consistent attendance, we also provide supper and a Bible-based study, crafts and music for the children through sixth grade. The children eat with their teachers, allowing the adult students social time with their teachers and classmates during supper.
Registration is held in September, and the class schedule is closely aligned with the public school schedule. Each Monday evening chatter and laughter pervade the hallways from active, joyful learning experiences going on inside the classrooms.
The ministry’s success is made possible by a highly motivated staff of volunteers from both the church and community.
