Daily Bread booklets for June/July/August are available at the church. If you would like one there are a few ways to get one:

  1. Come pick one up from the office during office hours (T-F 9:00 – 12:00 and 1:00 – 4:00)
  2. Call the church office and request one be sent via mail
  3. Call the church office and request one be delivered to you. Mary Ellen Wernow is willing to deliver some.


Staying in Touch with FBC:

We would like to be able to stay in touch better with you! If you do not current get the emails from FBC throughout the week, specifically our family email sent every Friday, send an email to Brooke at email hidden; JavaScript is required and let her know so she can add you to the list serve!


Regathering and Building Use:

As we are slowly regathering/reopening, we want to remind you that the church is opening up to groups under 25 people at a time in the building. Contact the office if you would like to reserve a room. The office is open from 9-12 and 1-4 PM. We also encourage you to watch the live stream on Sundays and maybe find a small group of friends to meet together with on Sunday morning.

With the announcement recently about FBC building reopening, we in the church office wanted to be sure to communicate clearly with regard to building use. We are taking this time to start over our building use calendar. What this means for you is that nothing is assumed; If you previously had an ongoing/one-time meeting in the building, we ask that you re-confirm with Brooke Staples that your meeting is a go. It will be very important to coordinate between us and meeting leaders on all the new details associated with opening. Email is the best method to get hold of Brooke at  email hidden; JavaScript is required. Thank you for your understanding in this time.


FBC History Document:
“The First Baptist Story, Vol. 1”
This book was written as a historical overview of the ministry and happenings of the first 120 years of our local church. It instructs and inspires us to see the Holy Spirit’s work of provision and redemption through ordinarily extraordinary people here in Corvallis, Oregon. Give it a read!


Love INC:

Help us bless those in need of hygiene items. The hygiene closet is in need of the following item(s) this week: ladies’ and men’s razors, ladies’ and men’s shaving cream, ladies’ and men’s deodorant, lotion, size five and six diapers, laundry detergent, and hair brushes. Please drop off any donations to the church office during the week.
