This Sunday (March 29) at First Baptist

Please join us for worship at First Baptist on this fourth Sunday of Lent!

Note: To satisfy social distancing requirements associated with prevention of the spread of COVID-19, for the foreseeable future we will be worshipping remotely only, using the web-access tool Zoom. If you are not already on the First Baptist mailing list, and wish to gain access to the service, please email us at or call the church office at 607-273-5800.

  • Pastor Debbie will present the message Jesus Wept, based on Scripture from John 11 — the raising of Lazarus.

In addition, an audio version of the Scripture Reading and Message will be posted later in the day after the service on the Recorded Sermons page under this tab.

The Journey of Lent

Lent, the 40 days and six Sundays leading up to Holy Week, calls us to a journey of deepening our spiritual lives and drawing closer to God.  This year our Lenten calendar will include:

  • Ash Wednesday service on Wednesday, Feb. 26, at 6 p.m. This service will include scripture, singing, a brief meditation, and the opportunity for the imposition of ashes, if you wish.
  •   Evening Prayers every Saturday at 5:00 pm from February 29 — April 4. These will be contemplative worship times with scripture, chant, and silent meditation.  These also will be offered only remotely using Zoom.

Please join us for one or more of these services!
