INVITATION from the Pastor:
I'd like to invite each of you reading this to join us at First Baptist Grottoes on our journey to becoming more committed worshippers and followers of Jesus Christ. My prayer for our church is that we'd become the kind of place where true followers of Christ are challenged and encouraged to grow in their faith daily, where new followers of Christ are nurtured and equipped to serve God and others and where those not yet following Christ are loved and welcomed to investigate for themselves the story of God and what following Christ is all about. My prayer is that we as a church would be diligent in serving others around us as an act of worship to God and that we would strive to have an impact on our community and beyond for the cause of Christ. We aren't a perfect church but we are a loving church and we are serious about representing Him in all things we do. I look forward to seeing some of you soon.
In Christ,
