COVID-19 / Coronavirus Update

Church family,

We have good news! In addition to our in-person worship services at 8:30 a.m. and 11:00 a.m., LifeGroups have re-opened for in-person gathering each week at 9:45 a.m. in the BCEB and the Hub. Many classes are ready to jump back into their normal routine of weekly LifeGroup time, while some classes are not ready to make that move yet. We encourage each LifeGroup and department to make the best decision for each of your classes as to when you would like to resume meeting on Sunday mornings. We are simply providing the time, space, and opportunity for our groups to meet again.

If your LifeGroup has resumed meeting, we strongly encourage everyone to wear masks, distance appropriately in the room, and not have common food or drink provided (i.e. coffee and donuts). If class members choose to bring their own personal food or drink from home, that’s totally fine.

We look forward to seeing you again, at the right time you decide, in our Sunday worship and Bible study hours. Thank you for your patience and perseverance through this unprecedented time in our world and through this season of ongoing ministry at First Baptist Longview!

Wee Learn

The Wee Learn Center

As an outreach of First Baptist Church of Longview, Texas, the Wee Learn Center was developed to help children grow spiritually, emotionally, intellectually, socially and physically. Because the most influential years of a young child are from birth to 6 years, the Wee Learn Center holds ministering to children as a top priority. What they learn during their first years will shape their attitudes about themselves and everyone around them. Although our school is open to any child regardless of race or religious beliefs, we believe faith and education go hand in hand to glorify God.

College Ministry

The College Ministry at First Baptist Longview is dedicated to loving God and our neighbors. We are constantly finding new ways to serve our community, share the Gospel of Jesus Christ and give our students opportunities to grow in discipleship with other believers. We focus on building an authentic community that sets aside our phones, masks and status to bring glory to God. The College Ministry at First Baptist meets in the Beaty Christian Education Building in Room 320, at the corner of Cotton and Fredonia St. in downtown Longview.

Special Friends

Special Friends Ministry is focused on meeting the spiritual needs of adults living in group homes in Longview and the surrounding area. Each Sunday at 10:00 a.m. men from the House of Disciples lead praise and worship, followed by a Bible study, then prayer. Refreshments are served after each service. Lunch is served once monthly at the end of the service. On a different Sunday each month, we acknowledge and celebrate birthdays with cake. We strive to provide a place for Special Friends to learn about God’s Word and grow spiritually, as we believe there are no disabled souls.
