Worship begins at 10:00 a.m. and includes many elements drawing from traditional and contemporary resources. A variety of musical styles from traditional choir music, contemporary and rock styles as well as classical and folk inspire our service each week. There is an opportunity for sharing joys and concerns and receiving prayer for those raised.

Note that Pastor Debbie is currently taking her first sabbatical leave through August 28. We welcome various members, friends, and visitors to our pulpit in the meantime.

For some time now we have been conducting our worship services in a hybrid in-person/Zoom mode. If you would like to join us via Zoom and are not on the First Baptist email list, please contact: fbithaca@gmail.com. If you’d like to join us in person, we will continue all the safety protocols we have been using during the COVID pandemic. Everyone will wear masks, unless they are speaking at one of the front microphones, and we will continue to have greeters welcome people, make sure they know our protocols, and track attendance just in case we need the information. We ask everyone to continue to be mindful of safe distances and limit physical contact.

Here are sample bulletins from some recent worship services:

Following worship there is a brief time of fellowship over coffee and tea.
