Our adult discipleship ministry is based on our desire to help all ages connect to God, His Word, and others. This is accomplished through a variety of classes, small groups, and special events. All we do is for one purpose: to make disciples who make disciples.


Sunday Mornings

Our Sunday morning small groups are the core of our adult discipleship program, providing a place for adults to study God’s Word and what it means for their life, family, and work. Each small group desires to provide a place where you can connect with others for fellowship, encouragement, and spiritual growth.


Wednesday Nights

We are excited to offer essential discipleship classes for adults that address two basic categories: life stages and spirit stages. Classes from both stages will be offered each semester in order to meet the vastly different needs of our adult congregation.

LIFE STAGES include a wide range of topics from parenting, men’s ministry, and women’s ministry.

SPIRIT STAGES include another wide range of topics from the basics of Christianity to apologetics.


Women’s Ministry

Legacy Women’s Ministry exists to bring together women of all ages and life stages for community and to grow as mothers, daughters, wives, and friends. We do this through on- and off-campus Bible studies held throughout the year as well as many special events, including Mom’s Night Out and the annual Christmas Sampler. For more information, email us.

A Ministry for Ages 55+


“May the God of hope fill you with all joy and peace as you trust in Him,

so that you may overflow with hope by the power of the Holy Spirit” (Romans 15:13)

Our joy-filled, “mature” adults experience life at First Baptist Church through

worship, Bible study, discipleship, missions, fellowship, and travel. 

We enjoy spending time together studying God’s Word and worshipping our Lord, 

giving of ourselves to minister to others in our church and community, and having fun!

By being involved in the JOY Ministry, you can always count on growing in your faith, having opportunities to share God’s love with others, being loved and supported, and having a lot of fun!  We’re living life with JOY!
