Where Can I Serve?

Jesus told us, his disciples, to make disciples of all nations. One of the most important values of this church is our mission to the world. It begins in our own community, and spreads overseas to every nation. Church members are involved in a variety of ministries from things as simple as washing the church vehicles, to preparing the church bulletins.
 
Student Ministry
Ignite is our student ministry to 7-12 graders.  It meets Wednesday night’s from 6:15-8:00pm in our Refuge student loft.  We believe in discipleship for our students to be strong in their own personal faith while preparing them to be Godly examples outside our doors while serving our community.click here
 
 
Kids and Family Ministry
Kids and Family Ministry is for children ages birth through sixth grade. It meets on Sundays and Wednesday with the Awana program.  Our goal is to provide a safe environment for all kids to learn God’s Story and their place in His Story.          click here
 
 
 
 
 

Music & Drama

The Worship Ministry exists to lift up the Name of Jesus Christ.
 
 As Psalm 150 states – Praise the Lord.  Praise God in his sanctuary; praise him in his mighty heavens.  Praise him for his acts of power; praise him for his surpassing greatness.  Praise him with the sounding of the trumpet, praise him with the harp and lyre, praise him with tambourine and dancing, praise him with the strings and flute, praise him with the clash of cymbals, praise him with resounding cymbals.  Let everything that has breath praise the Lord.  Praise the Lord.
 
 It is our honor to lead the congregation in worship each week during our service.   All talents are welcome and needed: band members, singers, computer, lights, and sound. 
 
Hospitality
Hospitality has a wonderful team of dedicated workers whom are being receptive to others needs by treating all of our guests with warmth, kindness and generosity.
We offer meals on Wednesday evenings from September through the end of April. We, also have meals on other special occasions. Every person in our community is invited to attend.
We would consider their presence an honor.Our 
mission is to increase GOD’S kingdom by reaching hungry souls through hungry tummies. 

Media & Technology

Using media to spread the gospel is a privilege of this church. In an age of widespread technology, we have a stewardship to use these tools as best as possible for kingdom purposes. All of our weekly sermons are uploaded to our website in audio formats. We also maintain an active Facebook account for additional church communication.
 

 

Marriage Counseling

Marriages can be difficult to maintain. Misunderstanding, confusion, resentment, and anger can flare up in any marriage. Our Pastoral Staff is willing to listen, come along side and encourage struggling couples.  By God’s grace couples have found fresh hope and new joy in a warm and fulfilling relationship with their spouse.
 
C.A.R.E.

C.A.R.E. is an acronym that stands for Christians Actively Reaching Everyone. Our CARE Ministry meets monthly. CARE covers a wide variety of outreach ministries which include: writing appreciation cards to community organizations, birthday/ anniversary cards to members, providing meals for hospitalized members and their families, praying for our local police/ fire departments, school teachers, staff,  students, and a wide variety of other outreach opportunities.

 

Prayer Warriors

Prayer cannot be overestimated. Prayer moves the hand of God. Our Church is committed as a body of believers dependent upon prayer, and committed to God’s sovereignty. Each Sunday, during the morning service, a team of volunteers is praying for the ministry of the Word. Throughout the week, volunteers from our Prayer Warriors team pray for their pastor and his wife, our community, a list of church members, any special requests, and missionary prayer needs, and those who do not know Jesus as their Savior.. Each Wednesday, the church comes together for a special time of prayer and Bible study

We believe kingdom work can only be accomplished through fervent prayers.

Mission Outreach

Waynesville First Baptist is thrilled to be part of the spread of God’s kingdom around the world. We are active in sending missionaries and supporting these missionaries with our money and with our prayers.  Each year, a small team from our church travels to places to assist our missionaries in practical projects and evangelistic outreach. We encourage all of our people to respond to God’s call for laborers, whether it means that they move to a foreign country or live and minister in our own community:
