I have been at First Baptist since I was born, so it’s a part of me. I love being around the people and hearing the Word, it truly lifts my spirits. If I don’t come to church on Sunday it’s the longest week of my life. Coming to church for me is just an enjoyable time. Even when I’m going through something hard, there’s still something uplifting about it. I might be crying, upset and sad, but I’m getting what I need.
I grew up in First Baptist and people here are family, literally and figuratively. I’ve grown up with them and the people here are so supportive.
My wife and I have been attending First Baptist Church for about eight months. One of the first things that stuck out to us was the community at the church. Everyone treats everyone like family and sincerely cares about each other. We have felt welcome since day one. It is very encouraging every Sunday to see our church family. I’m involved in Monday Night volleyball, Wednesday night youth group, and men’s ministry.
I’ve been attending this church for about twelve years now. The church’s interaction with the community has gotten a lot better. It’s improving and is more active, and we’re known in the community. Church to me is a place of refuge. For me after a long week it’s good to come and fellowship with fellow believers, it’s just a comfort for me.
I’ve been attending church for five years. In the London area, we try to use the church and its facility for the people of the community to use, for instance we have our open gym on Monday night, where members and non-members enjoy physical activity and interacting with each other. All the church activities are generally open to the public and then members can explore their own interests and missions in the community and service work. So we’re active within the church itself as well as the community at large of London. I would describe church as supportive and loving. My relationship with the people who are part of the church has really enriched me just as a person.
