The best way to begin meeting people at First Baptist is by joining a Life Group. A Life Group is a group of 8 to 20 committed people who meet to pursue their relationship with Jesus, connect with each other, and invest in the work of the Gospel. Life Groups not only help you apply what you're hearing in the Sunday messages, but they instantly make a big church feel small.
At First Baptist, we are passionate about people connecting with each other within our many Life Groups. Our many groups each meet once a week throughout the Richmond Hill area, some in homes, some at the church. We get together, eat, talk, laugh, and discuss life through the lens of what Christ would have for us. Life Groups encourage sharing our struggles and our successes with one another as we spend quality time together. Within our groups we encourage each other, support each other, and lifelong deep friendships are made. Life Groups have proven over and over to be the best way to connect with other First Baptist members.

Our senior adults are very special to our church body and the Prime Timers Ministry is for our adults ages 50+. Each month, the Prime Timers get together for a potluck lunch with food, fellowship and a guest speaker or singer. Each year, our Prime Timers take a Christmas time trip to Charleston South Carolina to look at the lights and enjoy time together in one of the Southeast's most beautiful cities.
Other Prime Timer activities include:
- Providing devotions that enhance spiritual enrichment either in becoming a Christian or growing in the Christian life.
- Providing attractive social activities which provide a sense of belonging.
- Providing opportunities for ministry in areas where Prime Timers can use their talents and interests.

He defended the cause of the poor and needy, and so all went well. Is that not what it means to know me? declares the Lord.Jeremiah 22:16
We partner with a few church plants throughout the US and help them launch and build a church in their community. We also, give to the North America Mission Board as the equip and support church planters.
Each summer our students go to one of partner church plants to serve them and their community.
Have you ever looked around and wondered what it would be like if you didn't have a house, clean water, or an education? Have you ever wondered what it would be like if no one had ever told you about Jesus? Have you ever seen a commercial on TV and wished you could help someone in need in another country?
We believe it is duty of the church to help others in need wherever they are just as Jesus' disciples did in the far away land of Samaria. We cooperate with other churches as well as the Baptist International Mission Board. We sponsor missionaries in Romania and have sent teams there several times. We are active in missionary work in Jamaica, where we build houses, lend our labor and love on the children while telling them about Jesus, and invite them to trust Him as we do. Recently, we have seen doors open up in Haiti. We are excited about our current opportunities to help the needy and share our hope in Jesus. We are even more excited about doing more.
Hello or as they say in Haiti, Bonjour. Our church owns a plot of land in Haiti where we are helping children to learn about Jesus, get an education, and thrive beyond their circumstances. Many of these children are orphans due the earthquake or economic circumstances.
First Baptist sends mission teams to Haiti on a regular basis and we have room for you. Whatever your gift, we want you to join us as we provide practical help while we share the hope of Jesus. Join us as we change lives for Jesus in Haiti. Merci beaucoup!
Hello mon... welcome to Jamaica! Where there are no problems mon, just situation! Let's forget everything you think you know about Jamaica like the cruise ships, large hotels, buffets, Bob Marley, and Cool Runnings and look at why we go to Jamaica. We go because there is a whole other part of the island that tourists never see. We go to the part of the island with little to no potable water and homes that are not more than pieces of scrap metal. We go to build homes for the homeless, paint, dig, hammer and saw. We also go to host Vacation Bible School and share our hope in Jesus to the children and their families. We can't just walk in and proclaim the Gospel, like here in America, we intentionally connect and are the hands and feet of Jesus in a practical way which opens the door to telling those we are with why we are ultimately there, to share our hope in Jesus and invite them to do the same. We go through an organization called Isle go...Isle go...will you? Contact us for more info and many blessing to you mon!
Operation Christmas Child
Operation Christmas Child is a division of Samaritan's Purse. Shoe boxes are filled with toys, candy, and other items and shipped to approximately one million children around the world. During the fall season, First Baptist church collects boxes from our church members and surrounding community for distribution. Each box has a book of Bible stories about Jesus shipped with it.
However, Operation Christmas Child is not just a fall or Christmas event. There are activities year-round to help fill as many boxes as possible with the goal of reaching as many children worldwide for Jesus.
