How Do I Meet People?

First Baptist Church is not a place for spectators. It is a place for team members. Whether you are a five-year old child, a ninety-five year old grandmother, a busy mom, or a businessman with big responsibilities, we want you to be a part of our vibrant church community. Here is how you can learn, serve, and grow at FBC Shallotte.

Small Group

Often, small groups of people are better able to interact and learn about the Bible than larger groups are. For that reason, First Baptist has small bible studies that meet throughout the Education Building. The size of the group is anywhere from six to twelve. At a time, designated by your group, you can participate in the small group study.

Children & Youth

Each Sunday morning, children get to participate in their own classes. Bible lessons are taught in such a way that every child gets to participate and learn. Each of the class teachers is carefully screened and thoroughly trained in children’s instruction. The youth ministry of First Baptist Church is recognized for their close interaction.

Young Adults

Life can get complicated once you cross that nebulous threshold into adulthood. There are complicated decisions. Bigger stakes. Serious relationships. And a whole lot more decisions. The young adult group of First Baptist provides a welcoming atmosphere for college and early-career aged young people.

Women’s Group

FBC Shallotte Women’s Groups gives the ladies in our church family special times of interaction. Our women’s groups are times of Bible study, prayer (and, of course, food). This ministry provides a refreshing discipleship opportunity for the women in the church.

Men’s Ministry

We are here to inspire and equip men to know the Word, teach it, and faithfully follow Christ as husbands, fathers, and friends. Times for prayer, Bible study, encouragement, and accountability are offered throughout the week.

Married Couples

Even though marriage is one of the most important institutions, it is the one which is under the most attack–internally and externally. First Baptist Church gives married couples the opportunity to join four-month long marriage classes ranging on topics from Marriage and Money, Getting Ready for Kids, Shepherding Children and Blending Families.

Over 50’s

Once you get past fifty, the fun has just begun. Whether retired, just plain tired, or active as ever, the over-50 group of First Baptist provides refreshment, ministry, and times of valuable interaction.
