A Vinegrowers Workshop
Vacation Bible School
Save the date for this year’s Vacation Bible School, June 5th-9th, as we teach preschool-5th grade children to be Keepers of the Kingdom, standing strong in the truth of God’s Word. Children’s registration opens April 2nd, and volunteer registration is open now! Learn more below.
Holy Week is the most sacred week in the liturgical year. It begins with the commemoration of Christ’s triumphal entry into Jerusalem on Palm Sunday and concludes with Christ’s rest in death on Holy Saturday. Holy Week leads up to Easter Sunday, when we honor Jesus’ resurrection. Join us during Holy Week, April 2nd-8th, as we reflect on the incredible work of Jesus Christ, our Savior!

Lesson Learned (Again)
Have you ever been in a situation where God taught you a valuable lesson in an unconventional way? I find myself in these situations often, and it always makes me praise the Lord that I serve a God who is greater than the box I often try to fit Him in. God is able to...
A Spirit of Gentleness
I have been in the habit lately of speaking harshly to my children. I have convinced myself that it is the only thing that works. If I respond calmly and quietly, my kids often times seem to ignore me. But if I yell, with hands on my hips and nose in their faces, I...
How Much Sweeter the Taste
As I moved closer to the dusty, swinging doors, my mind was unwaveringly set on one thing: food. At the time, I was working at a Christian summer camp, getting up early, going to bed late, and doing a couple hundred tasks in between. The work was difficult, and I...
Mercy Through Our “Gates” of FBP
Merciful Gates A few years back, my husband and I had the privilege to tour the country of Israel. The name of our tour was “Up to Jerusalem,” and if you’re anything like me, I didn’t realize Jerusalem is in fact UP from other areas across Israel. On our last full...
Pray For Your Children
A Moment of Reflection: As I walk through the hallways of a local high school, my heart breaks as I listen to the conversations that are taking place among young people. These discussions involve profanity, gender identity, inappropriate comments directed...

“Dream a dream so big that unless God intervenes it will fail.” – Hudson Taylor On a warm August morning, the sun rose behind my son’s new school. As the van door slid open, my 5th grader stepped out and flashed his closed-lip smile for a single picture. As he...

At First Baptist Powell, we believe the best way to preach the Bible is expositionally, believing that every Word in the Bible is inspired and God-breathed, and therefore must be dealt with accordingly. We believe in the authority of the Word, and we proclaim it without hesitation. When you leave the service, you can know you have heard the Word of God preached, and then you are able to apply Biblical truths to your life which will bring you into closer fellowship with Jesus Christ and believers. You will hear the Gospel proclaimed boldly and without reservation.
