Special Thanks

The Junior High Sunday School class held a bake sale on Sunday 6/21 as a service project, to benefit the Joe Hartman School.  Our goal was to raise enough money to offer a one-year scholarship to one student.  
We're excited to report that God blessed far more than we expected, through the generosity of so many.  The $551.42 raised is enough to provide one-year scholarships to THREE students!
Praise God!  Thank you to the FBC community for your support!  Excellent job by the kids in the Junior High Sunday School class with planning, coordinating, preparing, and hosting the bake sale!

From Our Pastor


There is a part of us we cannot see.  Even when we are, or have become, quite self aware {our gifts & weaknesses, our ambitions? aspirations, our motives & drives} large parts of ourselves remain in the shadow of our own consciousness.

We will never fully know the significance of

Music & Memory iPod Drive for CT Baptist Homes

How many memories can an iPod hold? Our older friends, even those with Alzheimer’s and other dementias, can reconnect with memories through music that was meaningful to them in younger days. Their favorite music, found in a personalized playlist of favorite music developed for each resident, is a lifeline to their best memories. Music has been proven to help recover memories, stimulate recognition, reduce pain and enhance quality of life.

Save the Date - Introducing Our Christmas in Wallingford Speaker

Christmas in Wallingford
Thursday, December 3, 2015

To know Sherrie Anderson is to know the power of a life lived at the foot of the Cross. Although she attended church as a child, she had not been exposed to the awesome grace that flows from a personal relationship with Jesus Christ, and so Sherrie looked for love and approval in many earthly places. When she encountered her Savior at age 22, passion to pursue the Word of God replaced the emptiness she had known.

During this season of her life, a longing grew to help other women delve into the riches of the Living Word so they could apply

CT Baptist Home Recognizes Our Ladies' Guild Visitation Team

On Tuesday, April 21, the Baptist Home in Meriden held their annual volunteer appreciation luncheon. Our Ladies' Guild volunteer visitation program that was begun two years ago was highlighted. Reverend Katherine spoke at length about what a blessing this ministry was for the residents there. She even went into detail how it actually began. There was a lovely slide presentation showing various facets to their volunteer program...our Christmas pageant was part of that as well as Susanne, Billie, and Lois taking part in their Vacation bible school.
