Wednesday Dinner Menu

Shepherd's Pie

Dessert

On Saturday, March 30th from 9 am until 2 pm, we are going to Love Our City in a BIG way and would love for you to partner with us in this event.  We are looking for volunteers to share your talents or skills, free of charge, in the name of Jesus.  For example, we’d like to offer free haircuts, car washes, oil changes, etc. right here at Jackson FBC, to those in need in our community.


We will need a lot of helpers to make this ministry a success, including those who will pray, and those who will come to talk with our guests and share the gospel.  Each of us has an opportunity to participate in this community wide outreach.


We are excited about the opportunities this day will give us to share Christ with Jackson, and hope you can be a part of what GOD is doing in our city and in our county.


If you have a skill or talent you would like to share, you can download an application here.  Please contact Jackson First Baptist if you have questions or would like additional information.

What's Next?

Do you sometimes find yourself stuck in a rut?  Does it seem as if your life has lost its fire for GOD?  For many Christ followers, the problem comes when the new wears off their decision to follow Christ.  For others, it is the lack of information concerning what's next in this new life of faith. Every Christ follower needs to know what's next in his or her Christian life.   In 2019, we will begin our study of First, Second and Third John.  Join us as we delight in the LORD and learn more about Him and how He wants us to live.


The study resource, What's Next is now available.  You can either order this book online or following the worship service.  You can also download the Bible Reading Plan for this series.
