We know that serving helps us grow in our faith while giving us a sense of belonging. As people serve, whether in the church, in the Metro East, or around the world, the impact has the power to change lives. We want to help you find your “sweet spot” for serving and provide opportunities to maximize your skills and abilities. Our serving opportunities are as diverse as our church family.
First impressions matter because people matter! The First Impressions / Connection ministry plays a vital role in welcoming members and guests to our campus and helping them get connected. We will equip and train you with all the necessary tools and information. Ministry opportunities include serving as an usher, greeter, coffee maker, or as a guest specialist at one of the Welcome Center desks.
KidsLife Ministry volunteers work together in fun and unique roles to create an impactful environment for kids from birth to sixth grade to learn who God is. We offer a variety of opportunities to serve throughout the week, as well as special events like Vacation Bible School. Come join our KidsLife Ministry Team to show our kids that they can KNOW God, GROW in His ways, and GO tell everyone about Him!
Our Student Ministry strives to provide students and families an engaging place for discipleship to take place. From large group events and missions to LIFE Groups (Sunday morning small group Bible studies), we have a unique and exciting place for you to use your talents to make a difference in the lives of teenagers from all over the Metro East.
Life is better in community! Invest in other adults and create a welcoming environment by leading an adult LIFE Group at First Baptist! In addition, there are opportunities for you to use your gifts in a variety of other ministries including helping with conferences, men’s and women's ministries, discipleship groups, adult special needs and more!
Worship & Production
Each week, the Worship Ministry at First Baptist offers multiple opportunities to serve. Whether your desire is to play an instrument, sing in the choir or on a praise team, we have a place for you! Maybe your interest lies more in the area of technology and audio/visual. If so, we have numerous ministry opportunities for you to serve in our state-of-the-art production department.
We enlist a large army of volunteers to bring our Upward™ soccer (spring), flag football (fall), basketball (winter), and cheerleading (with flag football and basketball) leagues to life! There is a place for you to serve, no matter what your skill set is. Opportunities include coaching, refereeing, concessions, and many others - and any necessary training is provided before the start of each season. It takes a host of volunteers and we would love to have you on our team!
As believers, we all have been given a mission and we find our purpose when we embrace it. So, what is our mission? To seek the glory of God and the good of all peoples through Jesus Christ. At First Baptist O’Fallon, we carry out this mission locally, regionally, and internationally. We have opportunities to serve in social ministries, mission trips, and more!
