Seasoned Adults Ministry

60+ Year Olds

Our mission is to foster the ongoing development of a personal relationship with Jesus Christ while connecting our Senior Adults with the ministry of FBC Palatka. Involving the Senior Adult in gospel sharing and the application of scripture to matters of daily living are the ways we live out the purpose of God. This mission is based on the belief that there is no "retirement" from the responsibilities of the Christian's service, stewardship, or spiritual growth, regardless of limitations of aging and cultural challenges.

Blessed are those who find wisdom, those who gain understanding

-Proverbs 3:13-15

Disability Inclusion Ministry

Here at FBCP, we have a desire for all people to feel included into the life and fellowship of our church family. With our 2024 launch of Night to Shine Palatka, sponsored by the Tim Tebow Foundation, we have embarked on a new season of learning and welcoming those with disabilities into the DNA of our church. It is our hope and the heart of our church that individuals and families affected by disability would find a place of belonging in our children’s, youth, and adult ministries. There is a place for YOU at First Baptist.

Deaf-OUr Sunday morning worship service is interpreted for the Deaf in American Sign Language.

Outreach

We have many opportunities in our spiritual community to become involved. Serving is a wonderful way to get connected, make new friends, give of yourself, become part of something larger than yourself, and grow spiritually through service.
