Where people gather to worship, share and learn… A growing church serving a growing community

Randall Patterson

As I think back on my memories at Stockbridge First Baptist, I’m taken back to my days as a youth.  I remember my Sunday School teachers who were so faithful in sharing Jesus.  I remember a Sunday night in May of 1969, when I stepped out in faith and gave my life to Christ.

I remember how the Lord used our recreational facilities to minister to our community.  I remember all the friends who have had such a wonderful impact on my life.  It’s such a joy to recall all those who have loved and still love Janice and me, our children and our grandchildren; you have given them a solid foundation built on Jesus Christ and we are blessed.

It never ceases to amaze me at what Jesus has done for our body of believers; He has time and time again met our needs.  I’ve seen prayer warriors on bended knees; some who need help in standing back up after praying and giving thanks.

My hope is that we will always be ‘on mission’; that our church will continue to love our community and those who come through our doors here at FBC.  I pray that we will go and be ambassadors for Christ.  That we will continue to worship in one accord and that we will live out

I Thessalonians 5:18-22 which says, “Give thanks in all circumstances; for this is God’s will for you in Christ Jesus.  Do not quench the Spirit.  Do not treat prophecies with contempt but test them all; hold on to what is good and reject every kind of evil.”

Thanks be to God,
