First Baptist Church of Altavista
Faith Community Mission
Spiritual formation of the individual believer is a priority at First Baptist Church. We believe it is important that each follower of Jesus engage in both individual and corporate study in order to learn what the scriptures says to us about our relationship with God through Jesus Christ and to develop spiritual disciplines that assist each person in living the Christian life.
Huddles are small groups of 5-6 people led by a Huddle leader for the purpose of discipling current and future leaders in mission and discipleship.
The Sunday School provides a solid foundation for our children to grow as followers of Jesus. Sunday School meets at 9:30 a.m. on Sunday. The Sunday School is age graded for the children. The Middle School and High School youth meet together. We maintain 2 nurseries, one for babies and the other for toddlers up to 2 years of age.
LifeGroups are our adult spiritual formation classes that meet on Sunday mornings at 9:30 a.m. They are preceded by a time of fellowship and sharing at 9:15 a.m. LifeGroups are generally classes that last from six to 12 weeks. A variety of classes are offered, such as book of the Bible or a topical study.
