A More Intentional Walk With Him This Year

One thing I know for sure, humans are extremely habitual creatures. It has been 2015 for only a few days now and already I have tried to sign more than one dated document as January 2014.

Hanging of the Greens 2014

Each year we decorate the sanctuary for Christmas here at the First Baptist Church in Oswego. This year, like the ones before, we had a great time decorating and shared some snacks afterwards. Here are a few pictures from the evening. If you are searching for a church home, Christmas would be a great time to join us!

Youth Duck Hunt – 2014

The first Baptist Church of Oswego held its annual youth duck hunt on Saturday, November 1. Around 30 young people attended, as well as about 20 volunteers. Special thanks to everyone who attended, volunteered, donated, and prayed.  

Thanksgiving Meal

The Oswego Ministerial Alliance Thanksgiving Meal will be held on November 23 at 6 PM at the Oswego Community Center. Our church has been asked to furnish the desserts for this event. We also need some volunteers at the Community Center to help set up the tables and also take them down following the meal. Admission to this event is a can of vegetables. If you can help with any of the above, please contact Lorene Brannin.
