We love God and others and strive to live out our faith every day. We understand the truths of the gospel and the reality of God’s love are not just for us to enjoy, and that is why we seek to share both with those around us.
We desire to use our events to connect and serve our local community and build relationships, help meet practical needs, and to share the gospel. We also partner with organizations devoted to defending the neglected and extending the gospel message.
VACATION BIBLE SCHOOL
Vacation Bible School (VBS) at FBC is always free and open to anyone in the community. We see VBS as an opportunity to share God’s love with many children from around Sturgeon Bay and Door County. Also, 100% of the freewill offering that is collected during VBS week goes to support other local, regional, and international ministries.
OPERATION CHRISTMAS CHILD
First Baptist Church serves as the only relay center in Door County for Operation Christmas Child. Every year individuals and churches from all over the county drop off their shoe boxes at FBC during collection week.
Every year First Baptist Church presents The Living Nativity, a live presentation of the story of Christ’s birth. The presentation takes place outdoors in the FBC parking lot at the corner of N. 5th Ave. and Georgia St. There is no charge for admission and free refreshments are offered inside in the fellowship hall following each presentation.
Every year we host a Chili Cook-Off to share in a fun food event and competition. Participants vote on the best chili, presentation, and desert, and prizes are awarded.
