At First Baptist Church of Hawkins, children are a vital part of our church family through worship, discipleship, and ministry.
We believe that children benefit from the experience of multi-generational worship through the sense of community, a feeling of belonging and learning how to worship God by participating in worship with their church family.
Sunday School, Faith Friends, Bible School, Children’s Choir and Mission Organizations provide opportunities for the children to receive discipleship in the Christian faith. Hands-on, age appropriate activities are planned to help each child to grow in the grace and knowledge of Jesus Christ through knowledge of the truths of the Bible and scripture memory.
Children are encouraged to participate in the various ministries of the church such as serving food, helping at the East Texas Food Bank, Mission Hawkins and Operation Christmas Child. Children who are involved in serving in ministry as a child will continue to serve as an adult.
Children do not need to wait until they are older to be involved in the church. They are a vital part of the church family at First Baptist Church of Hawkins now.
The youth ministry at First Baptist meets on Sunday mornings at 10:00 a.m., and on Wednesdays at 5:45 p.m. for dinner and Bible study in the Upper Room (upstairs in the Family Life Center). We also offer many other activities and mission opportunities in our community. For more information on our youth ministry and how you can get involved, contact Nathan Baldwin at 903-769-2199 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
Our adult ministry at First Baptist offers fellowship and teaching for adults of all ages along with service opportunities within the other ministries of the church. Through ministries such as WMU, Women's Enrichment, Baptist Men and weekly Sunday School classes we aim to equip the body of Christ for greater influence and leadership in our church, community, and across the globe. We offer Bible Study classes throughout the year. Please come and join us in one of our unique Sunday School classes. We would love for you to join us at 10:00 a.m. on Sunday Mornings. Worship service follows at 10:15 a.m.
