First Baptist Church: where you're a stranger only once.
The family at First Baptist Church in Collingwood extends a warm welcome to everyone to join us on Sunday mornings at 10:30 at 160 Pine Street. Pastor Paul Wilkes is our spiritual leader and has brought a renewed spirit of peace, joy and love to us and is leading us to focus our energies on increasing our outreach into our community.
Each year, First Baptist provides both financial and spiritual support to a variety of groups and organizations as part of our mission.
We are also proud to have celebrated our 147th Anniversary last September 27 as we looked back to the founding members of First Baptist who held their first organizational meeting in a stable.
Pastor Paul brings us messages filled with Bible teachings, wisdom and practical life skills, and we are blessed as from time to time, he shows us his musical skills at the piano, the organ and his trusty accordion.
DID YOU KNOW? We are wheelchair accessible and can provide the latest in hearing-assisted devices. Just ask one of our ushers.
