  • Ronald mcdonald House / local missions

    Ronald McDonald House is an outreach event that FBC participates in several times throughout the year. Volunteers go to the Ronald McDonald House to prepare and cook a delicious meal for the families staying there. These families have sick children in the hospital and the volunteers minister by cooking for them, visiting and showing them the love of Jesus. All are welcome to participate. The event dates will be posted on the church calendar. If you would like to sign up email Rachel Gorken or call the church office at 619-435-6588.   

  • Worship Team

    The Worship Team at First Baptist Church serves the church by providing music on Sunday mornings during our worship service. We practice once a week on Sunday mornings before the service. If you are interested in auditioning for the worship team, please contact our worship leader, Sheerah Haywood

  • convalescent ministry

    Convalescent Ministry is a fantastic way to share God’s love. We have one -on-one interaction with residents in local nursing homes. Every visit is different. Sometimes we offer manicures, or we put together arts and crafts, sometimes we just visit with them. Fred brings his violin and we go room-to-room and sing, we dance or sit in on an activity. We hand out homemade cards and knickknacks every time we visit. For Christmas we will take gifts and sing carols from room to room. Watch the calendar for upcoming dates since it’s different every month. Email Monica Medina for more information.   

  • financial peace university

    Financial Peace University is a 9-lesson class that teaches how to win with money. Join over 5 million people who’ve learned how to get out of debt and build wealth, so they can live and give like no one else!  We do at least one class per year at the church.  It costs +/- $100, but upon completion of the class, a full refund is issued!  Upon starting the class, the Dave Ramsey website materials will be available for use, and the class may be audited thereafter. Email Jon Lower for more information.
