Practicing our Faith

Bible Verse of the Day

“But Christ has indeed been raised from the dead, the firstfruits of those who have fallen asleep. For since death came through a man, the resurrection of the dead comes also through a man. For as in Adam all die, so in Christ all will be made alive.”

Bereavement Ministry

The loss of a family member, spouse, friend or other loved one is a particularly challenging time of life.  Our Christian faith and the community of faith come into play in these times in a special way.

Our pastoral staff and care team ministries are involved in and available for bereavement care.

In addition First Baptist offers the following ministries:

Wings for the Journey is a bereavement support group that helps grieving parents and family members cope with the loss of a child. This group meets in the Chapel at First Baptist on the third Tuesday of each month from 7:00 to 8:30 p.m. For more information call 812-378-0955.

The First Baptist Bereavement Support Team sends letters to those who've experienced loss each Lenten and Advent Season, as well as cards as follow-up care throughout the year. 

A relatively new means of care happens through a four-part series of books called Journeying Through Grief, sent to bereaved households at various points in the year following their loss.

This group also sponsors an annual Widows/Widowers Tea each year that is well-attended and appreciated.

Funeral Dinners & Receptions are another ministry offered for family of members at the time of loss.
