One Worship Service

We are so excited that starting Sunday, June 13th, we will return to one worship service where our entire church family and friends can worship the Lord in unison!

Summer Picnic

On Saturday, June 12th we will enjoy a church-wide picnic on the athletic fields to celebrate that the following day, we return to one unified worship service! More details, including the time, will be announced soon but for now please mark this date on your calendar and plan to join us.


At First Baptist Powell, we offer various types of support group ministries including DivorceCare, Single & Parenting, and GriefShare. Everyone in our community is welcome to join, whether you’re a member of our church or not. Please click below to register.

Membership Matters

Membership Matters is a unique class offered for anyone who wants to join or is prayerfully considering becoming a member at First Baptist Powell. You are not making a commitment to join just by attending the class. The next class will be held on Sundays from March 21-April 18.



Our Wednesday Night activities include AWANA Club for kids, Student Ministry for youth, and Choir Practice or Prayer Meeting for adults.

mill city missions

Be part of a history-making mission opportunity! We have the privilege of joining Mill City Baptist Church to help rebuild and reestablish their gospel witness in Oregon after the devastation of fires in 2020. The dates for the trips have changed but the opportunity for great Christian fellowship has not. Even if you can’t physically be part of a team, click below to find out how you can still be involved.

Prayer Requests

We consider it a privilege to pray for you and your family. Please let us know how we can be interceding for you and how we can join you in rejoicing over answered prayers.
