First Baptist Church of Williamstown
in Partnership with Williams Christian Fellowship
& MCLA Christian Fellowship
Here at First Baptist Church, we LOVE COLLEGE STUDENTS!! As a result, we feel God’s strong call to walk along side you during this transformational time in your lives.
We want to invite you to be a part of our church family that complements and enhances the strong student communities provided by your campus fellowships. While you are living in Williamstown and North Adams, we invite you to come and be a part of our church.
We have many opportunities for you here at First Baptist and we are always open to new ideas as well! All the contact information you need is included here so get plugged in. We are glad you are here.
Learning . . .
Small Groups – First Baptist offers a variety of small groups, all of which are open to students. If you have an idea for a new one, we would love to hear it!
Weekly Services – Each week, at 10am, we offer a worship service with meaningful worship music, warm fellowship, and an inspirational message, all in a family atmosphere.
Support . . .
Prayer Support – Our church gives students the opportunity to join our prayer list. This way you will KNOW that people here in Williamstown are actively praying for you! Also, if you ever have any prayer requests, we can put those out to the Prayer Chain ministry immediately. Our “Joys & Concerns” time during our weekly services is an open time of sharing and all have an opportunity to have their prayer requests lifted up at this time.
Finals Week Survival Kits – Prior to the start of each Finals Week, we show our love and encouragement by giving each student a goodie bag filled with fun and tasty treats and, of course, each bag comes with the commitment to pray for you during this stressful time.
Commissioning Our Graduating Seniors – This is a celebration of your fulfillment of your vocational calling as a student and we celebrate with you and honor you as you are sent out from this place to begin the next chapter of your life. This event includes a special ceremony during the service and a delicious meal afterward!
Service . . .
Praise Team – Where we are today with our Praise Ministry began with the leadership of students. Recognizing the gifts God has given you, we want to provide an opportunity for you to use them to His glory. If you have a gift and a desire to serve in this area, please contact us at at Contact Us.
Clean-Up Days – Each year, our church holds a day where we all come together to help clean and do some small fix-up projects. Our facility is over 100 years old and entrusted to our care and we need everyone to lend a hand.
Tech Team – We always need more people to help set-up and/or run our PowerPoint during the Sunday services and we also have opportunities for sound tech and video tech.
Fellowship . . .
Monthly Luncheons – Once a month, our church serves a delicious potluck luncheon directly after the Sunday service. This is a wonderful way for students to connect with people from our church that live in the community. We welcome you to mingle and branch out by breaking bread with our church family.
