Trusting God in Trying Times Sermon Series

The Trusting God in Trying Times series will run through the end of June.  The series is focused around how ordinary people in the Bible trusted God through some of the most trying times that could have been orchestrated in this world.  Join us online weekly to participate in a very exciting and timely series.

  • The LORD will Protect (Daniel 3:8-30)
  • The LORD will Defeat Enemies (1 Samuel 17)
  • The LORD Forgives (Luke 7:36-50)
  • The LORD Saves the Most Unlikely (Luke 23:32-43)

Welcome to First Baptist Church

The world is longing for hope. We believe that hope is found in a relationship with Jesus Christ, and loving and being loved by His community of followers. Our goal is to infuse the hope of Christ in unexpected ways and help move people into action to live a life transformed.

  • A Message from Pastor Mark

    Because of this pandemic, we’re all having to adjust to a “New Temporary Normal.”  We’re not stopping church but using technology to help us connect.  For the month of April, all our Sunday Services will be on-line.  We will be streaming our services live on 2 platforms (Facebook & YouTube). Instructions for each are below: 

    • Facebook. Go to www.Facebook.com and search for our church by putting in the name “First Baptist Church.”  It will give you some choices and you need to choose our church.  If you are a first-time user, be aware that there is a “First Baptist Church Grass Valley” which will pop up and it is in Oregon so don’t choose that church but our church with its logo.  We will be live streaming at 9 AM.  We’ll start with worship at Pastor Nunn’s home as he and his family lead us.  Then when he ends, you’ll receive a notice that I’m going live from my home.  Just click on that link and you’ll be ready to receive my sermon for the day. 
    • YouTube. Using Google Chrome as your browser, go to www.YouTube.com. In the search bar, type 'Mark Rindels'. The top answer should be my name with a 'Subscribe' Button next to ‘Mark Rindels’. Hit 'Subscribe', then click on my name to get to my page. My sermon video from home will go live at approximately 9:20 (after worship finishes at Pastor Nunn’s home).

    We will continue NOT holding any services, Bible Studies, or gatherings of any sort at the church while we are ordered to “shelter at home.”  


    Sunday School for the Children and Youth is on Zoom.  

    Preschoolers are at 10:30 am, Children are at 11:00 am, and Youth are at 11 am.  


    If you haven’t been attending on-line, get started this Sunday.  Parents of preschoolers and children, contact Carmelita Wasson (Children’s Ministry Director) at Carmelita.wasson@gmail.com


    Youth can contact Austin Nunn or Chris Evans for the Zoom Meeting ID # for Youth Group.   Also, Wednesday Night programs are continuing for Youth and Children on-line.  See Pastor Nunn for Kid's Choir, Austin Nunn for youth, and Carmelita Wasson for children's ministry details.
