New Church Office Hours: Now open Fridays 8am - noon

We are pleased to announce that starting Friday, September 28, our church offices will be open from 8:00 AM to noon on Fridays. At First Baptist, we greatly value our staff members, whose dedication and hard work are instrumental in fulfilling our mission to serve our congregation and community. In light of this, we have carefully considered the impact of our office hours on their lives and productivity.

This strategic shift to half-day Fridays brings several key benefits to our employees and the church as a whole:

  • Enhanced Work-Life Balance: Our staff members will now have more time to recharge, spend quality time with their families, and pursue personal interests. This change fosters a healthier work-life balance, which is essential for long-term job satisfaction.

  • Increased Productivity: Research has shown that employees who have opportunities for relaxation and personal time tend to be more productive during their working hours.

  • Employee Retention: By prioritizing the well-being and happiness of our team, we are strengthening our commitment to retaining valuable employees. High retention rates ensure continuity, stability, and a positive work environment.

  • Employee Morale: Half-day Fridays demonstrate our appreciation for the hard work and dedication of our staff.

One of our key focuses in ministry is the intersection of our mind, body, and spirit. By making this change, we aim to extend that focus to our employees, ensuring they are supported both in their work and personal lives. We carefully planned this change to ensure all employees are still able to work their standard 40 hours while enjoying this benefit.

For more information about this change in office hours or any other inquiries, please contact Rev. John Daniels at
