First Baptist Church renews contract with Pastor Paul Wilkes
The family at First Baptist Church in Collingwood is delighted to announce that Pastor Paul Wilkes, our interim Pastor for the past year, has agreed to remain as our spiritual leader for the next five years.
Pastor Paul 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 celebrate our 145th Anniversary on September 23 as we look back to the founding members of First Baptist who held their first organizational meeting in a Collingwood 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.
We extend a warm welcome to everyone to join us on Sunday mornings at 10:30 at 160 Pine Street.
