WATCH ONLINESunday Mornings


There are many issues vying for our attention in 2020. As the year wraps up, it would be terribly easy to simply survive until this difficult year has ended. Instead, let’s use the conclusion of this year to reorient our hearts and minds to our only hope—the first and second advents of the Incarnate Son of God. 

Sunday Mornings

Join us for Sunday morning worship at 8:45 or 11:15 AM! LifeGroups meet from 10:00 to 11:00. We invite you to visit our new Sunday Mornings page each week for resources including sermon notes, announcements, the link to give online, a place for prayer requests, and more!

Welcome, Guests!

Whether it’s your first time at First Baptist Powell, you’ve been several times before, or you’re still thinking about visiting, we’re glad you’re here! We consider it an honor and a privilege to welcome guests of all ages and backgrounds to our church. We hope if you’ve already visited that you felt right at home. Please visit to let us know how we can better serve you.

Lottie Moon

We invite you to stop by the Women on Mission Lottie Moon display at The Point on Sunday. Though our church has only one IMB missionary family, we have several other international missionaries from our church. Please take a picture ornament from the Lottie Moon tree to take home as a reminder to pray and give.

Wednesday Nights

Join us on Wednesdays from 6:30 to 8:00 PM for prayer meetings, choir practice, student ministry, and children’s ministry.

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.


Check out First Baptist Powell’s new podcast, Completely Churched. New episodes are posted twice a month.

Cyber Barrel Drive

Mission of Hope is hosting a 2020 Cyber Barrel Christmas Drive starting Nov. 1. Due to COVID-19, the traditional blue barrels will not be set out. Instead, Mission of Hope is asking that you buy new toys and clothes for kids across Appalachia on their website.

We are a gospel-centered community who loves God and others by:
Worshipping Him • Proclaiming His Word • Sharing His Gospel • Equipping His People
