“It Is Finished! Easter Service

“It Is Finished!” Three words spoken by Jesus on the cross. Recorded by God in our Bibles.  What do they mean? What is finished? We will celebrate all that was finished and more this Easter Sunday, March 31 at 9:30am. For more information, visit

Music & Worship Ministry

You won’t want to miss church this Sunday, March 10 as the First Baptist Church Keller Student Choir will be singing in corporate worship that morning in the 9:30am service. The Student Choir, as led by Pastor Matt Perkinson, is on a mission trip/choir tour and will be both leading us in worship and performing some of their choir repertoire for us.

January Month-End Update from the Finance CommitteeSo far this year, giving has exceeded expenses (receipts= $271,129, expenses = $236,064). Your faithfulness is encouraging. If you have made a bequest in your will to the Lord, Thank You! Faithful in life, faithful in death. If you have any questions about the church finances contact any member of the Finance Committee (Ken Abbott, Doug Lawson, Fran Stribling, Regan Stinnett, JoAnn Polk, Robert Ewing or Jerri Rose).

Life Baskets

We will be doing an outreach initiative leading up to Easter this year. We will be handing out a Life Basket to a neighbor, coworker, friend, etc. before March 31. Please pray about who you might invest in. We will have tables set up today and next Sunday, March 17 with sample baskets for you to see and, we pray, take. We hope many families will take a basket. You will be able to add to your basket and customize it for the person/family you will be sharing with.

In Loving Memory

Please continue to be in prayer for the family of Susan Moorefield.
