This change should provide a good atmosphere for uninterrupted study and discussion. We will be studying the book of Job and look forward to seeing all who want to be involved in Bible study, not just a select few.
Sunday School for our children and youth begins each Sunday morning at 9:30AM. We encourage all families to take advantage of this opportunity to help children learn about the teachings of Jesus.

Many Thanks ... The family of Olive Inman wishes to thank the congregation of First Baptist Church of Birmingham for all their thoughts and prayers during her recent illness and passing. The flowers provided for her funeral service were beautiful. We appreciate all the cards we received and were especially comforted by the many members of the congregation who attended the visitation and or funeral service. We are truly blessed to belong to such a loving fellowship. Barbara & Howard Campbell and family.
Building Project Update: Our project replacing the storms windows on the sanctuary with new, crisp and clear coverings have begun. We have completed two windows on the west side of the sanctuary building. Jump outside and take a look! We can now see the beautiful workmanship on these windows installed so many years ago. The remaining six windows on the eastside of the building will be addressed beginning on Tuesday, May 30.
Many thanks to Ralph Charlick who has been quietly working behind the scenes improving our curb appeal! Ralph has worked many hours installing a beautiful stone boarder around the garden beds on the east side of our building. Thank you Ralph for your continued commitment to your important ministry at church!
