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 Sunday Mornings page each week for resources including sermon notes, announcements, the link to give online, a place for prayer requests, and more.


Vacation Bible School at First Baptist Powell is scheduled for June 16-18 from 9:00 AM to 12:30 PM! Register your children, ages kindergarten to fifth grade, below. If you are interested in volunteering, you may also click below.

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.


Check out First Baptist Powell’s podcast, Completely Churched.

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.

Community Groups and LifeGroups are now back to meeting in-person on Sundays. If you would like more information about getting involved in these groups, please click below.

One Saturday morning several weeks ago, I sat in my bed having my quiet time. I had begun to read a new advent devotional that had been released the month before. I already had gotten the idea that if it was good and solid, I’d like to have a book club of sorts during...
