Common Grounds Toy Drive

Each year at First Baptist Church Waxahachie we provide a large gift donation to the Common Ground "Christmas with Dignity" Store. Sunday morning was amazing!!  39 bikes and 100s of toys were donated. This year 19 of the bikes were purchased by funds collected in the Higher Focus Bible Study class in memory of Don Simpson and his love of the Common Ground Toy Drive.

Thank you all for your generosity in creating a special Christmas for Waxahachie children.

The Extra Mile begins October 29th

main image

Having spent the past four weeks in a sermon series on Hearing God, I think it would be appropriate for us to launch a special prayer emphasis for the next 40 days. This is because our church will be launching a very important campaign

called The Extra Mile. I will be sharing more details about it next week. Since next Sunday is such a special time, would you make plans now to make sure that you will be here and will you pray? I believe that God hears our prayers and I believe that his “sheep” really can hear his “voice.”

FBC Thanksgiving at the Civic Center November 8

Join us for this church-wide fellowship meal for all ages that will be at no-charge to you. That’s right, no charge! This will be a wonderful time for all of us at First Baptist Church, across all generations, to be together as a church family.

The meal will be prepared by the Waxahachie High School culinary department (sponsored by the deacons of First Baptist Church) and will be served by our students. We will have special presentations from our children’s choir and others. We will celebrate

all the things God has been doing at First Baptist and also showing you the most recent progress that has made on our church facilities, as we have been Moving Forward by Faith. We will also be débuting a 3D-walkthrough of the future church facilities created by our architectural rm.

You do not want to miss this event! Call the church of ce to reserve a spot for your family.
