How to Connect

First Baptist Church of Van Texas is a church that desires to see Every Family Reached in our town. Whether you are a five-year old child, a ninety-five year old grandmother, a busy mom, or a businessman with big responsibilities, we want you to be a part of our church community.
Here is how you can learn, serve, and grow at First Baptist Church. 

Study Groups

We all learn from each other and in various types of settings.   For that reason, First Baptist Church has Bible studies at various times and for different topics. The small group special studies can run anywhere from six to twelve weeks and will be focused on topical, applicable subjects.  Sunday mornings our Sunday School groups are geared to age groups and studying the Books of the Bible in depth.

Children’s Ministry

Each Sunday morning, children get to participate in their own classes. Bible lessons are taught in such a way that every child gets to participate and learn. Each of the class teachers is carefully screened and use curriculum to engage the children in learning activities.  Children’s Church is available for preschoolers during the morning worship service.

Student Ministry

Being a teenager can be one of the hardest times of life for students. Our student ministry’s purpose is the same as the rest of the church. To see Every Family Reached. We believe we can do that through Community, Compassion, and Christ. We are here to help your students understand how they can make it through these difficult years of Junior High and High School and all the challenges that comes with that. Our ultimate goal is to see our students lives be impacted and changed through faith in Jesus. We want students to know that there is hope no matter how hard things get.
