Bible Verse of the Day
“For you know that it was not with perishable things such as silver or gold that you were redeemed from the empty way of life handed down to you from your ancestors, but with the precious blood of Christ, a lamb without blemish or defect.”

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.
