Welcome to First Baptist Church, Southern Pines, and the Sandhills of North Carolina

Here you will find people at different points in their faith journey, worshiping together in a spirit of community, learning, and love. We hope you will visit us, attend a service, or participate in an event. We invite you to browse our web site, and contact us with any questions or ways we might be of help.



Upcoming Activities & Events

WOW (Widows or Widowers)
Thursday, April 24 - 11:15 AM

WOW will gather at the church at 11:15 and have lunch together and then travel to the campus of the Sandhills Community College for a guided stroll through the beautiful gardens.  There will be some walking involved in this outing, so plan accordingly.  If walking isn't in your repertoire, just join us for lunch time, and enjoy good food and fellowship.  Contact the church office or stop by the bulletin board for details and to sign up.

Join us on Wednesday evenings through May 7 for our church family supper*, followed by music and missions for preschoolers and children.  All adults are invited to a time of
Contemplative Worship at 6:45 PM in the Sanctuary.
This is a time of quiet, reflective worship with communion each week.  Our youth will join us for some of these services.  Members of our church family will offer leadership through their music gifts.
* Please remember to make your dinner reservation no later than noon on Tuesday.
