Information About Glencoe and First Baptist Church Glencoe:
Glencoe is a family-oriented community of about 5,000 located just outside of Gadsden in Northeast Alabama. We are centrally located between the metropolitan areas of Birmingham and Chattanooga on Highway 431.
We are a medium-sized Southern Baptist Church with a newly-renovated sanctuary and we are in our 4th year of our capital campaign. Our membership is blessed with an even mix of all age groups who participate through their attendance and giving. We have over 100 members participating in discipleship through 20 DLife groups and a full Sunday School program. Many young families participate in the activities of FBCG though our children’s and youth programs. Our children benefit from an active children’s program through our full-time Children’s Minister. We have an excellent children’s church every Sunday and a yearly trip to Kids Camp at Shocco Springs. Our youth are being led to grow deeper weekly through our “180 student ministry” led by our full-time Youth Minister and Associate Pastor. They go to Centrifuge and Missionfuge yearly. We have a senior adult ministry that offers regular excursions and activities. Our music program, led by our part-time music minister, provides a blended style of music for our worship services. We have an active missions program for children through Mission Friends, GAs and RAs.
FBCG is committed to the Great Commission to reach our community, county, state, country and the world with the Gospel of Jesus Christ. Besides our missions organizations, we support the Cooperative Program and the annual Alabama, North American, and international Missions offerings. We support and participate in Associational events and mission trips and sponsor a church in Saltillo, Coahuila, Mexico through regular offerings and a yearly medical mission trip. Through the effort of many of our members, we stage a Christmas light program every year for a month on the outside of the church with a gospel message and music shared through a radio station. On the weekends, we serve hot chocolate to visitors and share a Bible, the plan of salvation, and ask for prayer requests. We are strategically located, so we have many visitors even from out of state.
First Baptist Church Glencoe is a very caring and generous fellowship and is supportive of the community and the schools. The next Pastor of First Baptist Church will be coming into a great opportunity for sharing the Gospel and leading us in bringing glory to God through all He leads us to do.
