This Sunday (June 13) at First Baptist

Please join us for our worship service at First Baptist this Sunday!

Note: To satisfy social distancing requirements associated with prevention of the spread of COVID-19, 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 worship service, please email us at fbithaca@gmail.com or call the church office at 607-273-5800.

  • Please join us for worship this week.
  • Pastor Debbie’s message will be God Has No Favorites!
  • After the service we will have a short time to connect with one another in Breakout Rooms, followed by a Congregational Meeting in which we will receive the Annual Report, elect new leadership for the congregation, and discuss and vote on new guidelines for returning to in-person worship, both out of doors and in the FBC sanctuary. Members and Friends who are on the FBC email list should have received copies of the Annual Report and the new guidelines on Thursday and Friday mornings, and are encouraged to read them before Sunday.

The church building will not be open for in-person worship this week. If you are not on our email list and wish to join one, or more, of our services via Zoom, please follow the instructions in the first paragraph above to obtain the link you will need.

As usual, audio versions of the Scripture Reading and Message of these services will be posted on the Recorded Sermons page under this tab.

Saturday Evening Prayer Services

During last year’s Lenten season, First Baptist joined together on Saturday evenings for special Lenten Prayer services.  These were so successful, especially after they went on-line using Zoom, that we have decided to continue them for the foreseeable future. Please consider joining us for these special services:

  • Saturday Evening Prayer services from 5:00 – 6:00 p.m. These services will include opportunities for chant, Scripture reading, and silent meditation.
    These also will be offered only remotely using Zoom. See weekly email reminders for the Zoom Meeting link.

Please join us for one or more of these services!
