Can you bind the chains

     of the Pleiades

Or loose the cords of Orion?

Can you lead forth a constellation

     in its season,

And guide the Bear with her satellites?

Vision 6000. Join us Sunday, June 4 at 5:00 p.m., to Celebrate the Call, a Missions Family Festival, a wonderful evening of praise, commissioning of our summer missionaries, and appreciation of our church plants as we celebrate the call to spread the Good News. Worship and establishment of two of our church plants into constituted churches will be followed with an amazing family time of fellowship, fun, and food. There will be a Missions Fair showcasing the ministries FBC supports, prizes, and delicious desserts. Come, let us celebrate together!

Border Ministry 2017. We will partner with Mesa Place Church, Peregrino, Cristo Rey Lutheran Church, and a church start from First Baptist Church Clint. We need volunteers to help reach out to their communities. Sign up at or on the Service Opportunity Board on the first floor behind F101. Final training will be June 3 from 9:00 a.m.-2:00 p.m. in room F101.

Youth Summer Camp. Camp is June 25-29 at Bonita Park Conference Center in New Mexico. The fee is only $299, and even less if packaged with the Mission Trip! Help Nataly Mora, Camp Director, by getting your child’s registration turned in. This year’s theme is ONE – one God, one way to Him, one family under Him, and one mission for us all. It will be a tremendous time for your child to grow in their knowledge of unity in the spirit. Contact Nataly for details and scholarship information if needed. Plan now to have your child impacted by the study of ONE this summer!

Thank You from Dan McGlasson. “Thank you, First Baptist, for the wonderful expressions you have given me over the past weeks on my announcement of retirement. Your graciousness at this time has been tremendous and heartwarming. You, as a congregation, have always supported the work of the ministers. I have been blessed to serve as Youth Pastor for these past nine years, and I am excited about this next chapter in my life. Bless each of you, and join me in praying now for Nataly as she takes the summer programs, and for the next Youth Pastor who is called by God to serve here!” — Dan

Welcome, Nataly Mora and Nick Smith. We welcome Nataly Mora to our staff for the summer as she will serve as our Interim Student Minister, taking charge of Sunday School, Sunday night Bible Study, and Wednesday night Bible Study. Nataly will also lead in VBS for Youth, direct Summer Youth Camp, and direct the Youth Summer Mission Trip, July 9-16 to Jennings, Louisiana. We also welcome Nick Smith as our Student Ministry Intern, to help Nataly, with our youth activities this summer. Nick has finished his second year at Texas A&M Canyon and has been leading the youth at FBC Memphis, Texas, during the school year. Nick grew up here in FBC and will be an asset to our Youth Program. Pray for these two and our youth workers as they experience a great summer youth program!
