At First Baptist we are a church that ministers to all generations.

We think of faith as a journey and recognize the ways our understanding and approach to faith, the Bible, and church change with our life experiences. We believe that Jesus’ commandment to love God “with all of your mind” applies to adults as much as children, so we value adult education that challenges as much as it nurtures and inspires. We also know that one thing is necessary no matter where you are in your journey of faith: meaningful relationships. FBCX is a place where adults of all life stages are welcomed, cared for, and equipped inspired to continue growing in faith.


Sunday School Classes

For grown-up conversation about faith matters, for fellowship with good friends, and for taking care of your heart and soul and mind as well as your body in these days, join us for Sunday School.

You’ll be welcomed, and you’ll be glad you did. If you have questions about any of our classes, about what they’re doing on Sunday, or how to connect with them, contact the church office.


Short-Term Classes

We offer a variety of short-term classes at different times during the year, typically in the seasons of Advent, Lent, and over the summer.

Adult Too!

Sunday mornings at 9:45

“We reserve the right to accept everyone!” is the theme for this class. Teachers vary each week, and you will often find them studying topics for several Sundays.

Adult 3 Coed Class

Sunday mornings at 9:45

This class of mostly older adults is committed to studying the Bible and understanding its meaning for our lives and our world, guided in their study by curriculum materials published by Smyth & Helwys and informed by their faith and wisdom.


Sundays at 7p

This intergenerational class of women focuses on spirituality, community, and self-reflection. From our beginning, our focus was hearing the stories of women in scripture, gaining insights from women we know as saints, and experiencing personal growth from the journeys of contemporary women of faith—their struggles of life and faith, and how what we learn through their stories impacts our own faith journey. (We have also gladly welcomed a few men throughout our history.)

Kindred Spirits

Sunday mornings at 9:45

The individuals and couples in Kindred Spirits are navigating mid-life together—sharing burdens and blessings and supporting each other with prayer and encouragement. Teachers lead class discussion of scripture, usually based on lessons in the Nurturing Faith curriculum.


Sunday mornings at 9:45 

This dynamic group seeks to study, question, and fellowship together in innovative and sometimes unconventional ways. A warm and welcoming class for people mainly in their 30s through 50s. You can find Koinonia on Facebook!


Sunday mornings at 9:45

The Pilgrims class is made up primarily of median to older adults, both single and married, who enjoy pursuing biblical and topical studies. We’re particularly fond of book studies! Valuing open and honest thinking and growing in the faith, the class exists to share the pilgrim journey with each other.

Wednesday Nights

Wednesday night fellowship and prayer time are also important at First Baptist. We gather most Wednesday evenings during the school year for supper in the Fellowship Hall, and then stay around the tables for a time of sharing: birthdays, anniversaries, announcements and prayer. The children break off into their choirs and missions groups and the adults stay in the fellowship hall for a discussion-based Bible study. All voices and perspectives are welcome and valued, so the discussion is almost always lively.

Women’s Ministry

Our annual women’s retreat in the fall at St. Simons Island is the highlight of our women’s ministry. Since 2000, First Baptist women have gathered together for a weekend of learning and community building with plenty of good food and free time built in. It is a weekend that many of our women look forward to all year long.

A monthly book club keeps the conversation going throughout the year. These gatherings take place in members’ homes and focus on women authors, especially highlighting those voices from whom we do not often hear. 

Men’s Ministry

Our Men’s ministry is highlighted by a Men’s Retreat in the spring. We have also convened for a summer “Back Porch Book Club” and gather periodically at local breweries or members’ homes for times for fellowship and conversation.
