Ministries

Looking for a Ministry to get connected?

We have a ministry for you.  Our Information Center, located in the South Lobby of the Sanctuary Building, has literature on ministries and activities.

Children
Partnering with parents to provide academic, social, spiritual, physical, and emotional ingredients to form a "firm foundation" for life.  

College and Young Professionals
We want to provide an environment where you can experience authentic community and spiritual growth. We believe that a person who is growing in their relationship with Jesus Christ is someone who is pursuing intimacy with God, community with other believers, and influence with those who do not yet believe. These are three vital relationships that we strive to create in the lives of those in our ministry.

Deaf Ministry 
Welcome to our Deaf Ministry at First Baptist Church Arnold - a church where the deaf can grow in Christ and experience to involve worship, fellowship, and events. We hope that you will enjoy surfing this website to learn about our deaf ministry, about our events, history, links, and other resources.

Family Life Center 
The Family Life Center, a ministry of First Baptist Church Arnold, is an exciting 77,000 square foot complex. The Center houses an NCAA-caliber gymnasium, suspended indoor walking track, video arcade, fitness center, the Solid Rock Cafe, and a large banquet center. The facility is open to the public free of charge with no memberships required. 

Food Service
The purpose of the Food Service Ministry at FBCA is to support all ministry areas within the church so that Christ will be glorified, that all may come to a deeper relationship with Him and that we may have a sweet "fellowship among the brethren". We do this by fulfilling food service request needs for church activities and serving alongside Bible Fellowship Classes, Department Fellowships and Ministry Leaders. We love serving the Lord by serving His people. Come serve the Lord with us.

Married Adults
Our purpose is to help families draw closer to one another and to the Lord through a variety of ministry opportunities.

Single Adults 
A ministry where you can be a part of a loving and caring family. It is comforting to be able to share or be encouraged by others who may be facing the same experiences and situations in life that you may be facing. S.A.M. is for single adults who have a personal relationship with Jesus Christ, for single adults who are just beginning their walk with our Lord and Savior or for single adults who have questions about where they are and where they are heading in life.  
 
Seniors
We have one of the greatest Senior groups anywhere.  Our people are Christ-loving people, with a desire to follow Jesus with a deep passion as we continue our journey of life.  Whether you are widowed, single or happily married, there is a place for you to jump in and get acquainted.  Bible Fellowship classes meet at 8:00 a.m., 9:15 a.m. and 10:45 a.m. each Sunday.  The largest group of Seniors meet at the 8:00 a.m. class and attend the 9:15 a.m. Worship Service. 

Fellowships are largely through our Bible Fellowship groups. However, we have special banquets throughout the year where as many as 300 plus attend.  We also have a Wednesday Afternoon Bible Study and Prayer time for Senior adults at 1:00 p.m. - 2:00 p.m. in room 101 of the Family Life Center.  You can come to the cafe' in the Family Life Center for a light lunch and stay for the Bible Study time.   

Students
New Synergy services for grades 7 through 12  every Sunday morning and Wednesday evening in the Upper Fellowship Hall. Featuring new bands, new look, new feel. Everyone is always welcome to visit. 

Worship   
In a society where worship is often defined by music and multi-media, we often miss what it means to live a life of worship. Colossians 3:17 states, “And whatever you do or say, do it as a representative of the Lord Jesus, giving thanks through Him to God the Father.” True worship is not one simple things such as singing or speaking, rather a sold out life where everything we do should be unto Jesus. This lifestyle is the goal of our Worship ministry. From mission trips to outreach projects, worship seminars and major musical productions, we have creatively developed ways of encouraging you and your family to strengthen your musical and worship leadership skills.
