Thought for the Week “I can see how it might be possible for a man to look down upon the earth and be an atheist, but I cannot conceive how a man could look up into the heavens and say there is no God.”― Abraham Lincoln

9:30 am Adult Bible Study 10:30: am Praise and Worship Service with Pastor Paul Wilkes
LIFE EXPLORED SERIES COMING TO FIRST BAPTIST CHURCH LIFE EXPLORED, a seven-part series aimed at helping people uncover what they're really living for and to see how in Christ, God meets their deepest desires for happiness. It is an exciting new way for us to share the Gospel in today's highly-visual culture, and consists of seven interactive sessions based on stunning films shot all over the world. It is perfect for anyone looking for answers to life's big questions. Each session features two films, two Bible readings, and one Bible study: the first film is a ten-minute story piece (with no dialogue or narrative), intended to gently and thoughtfully raise the session’s theme. The quality of these films is second to none; each story is beautifully and elaborately shot, ranging from the dramatic account of a prospector risking his life in the Californian gold rush, to an emotional snapshot of a geisha and her family in Edo-period Japan. The series will begin on Tuesday, September 24 at 2 pm and will be conducted by Pastor Paul Wilkes. The series is free and open to everyone, but you are asked to register by e-mailing us at fbcollingwood.
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.
In past months, First Baptist has provided both financial and spiritual support to a variety of groups and organizations as part of our mission, and in the months ahead, we will be presenting more musical concerts and special events.
We are also proud to have celebrated our 145th Anniversary last September 23 as we looked back to the founding members of First Baptist who held their first organizational meeting in a stable. : Each week, 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.
