BRATTLEBORO -- In her New Year’s letter to the church, Pastor Suzanne Andrews invited all to First Baptist Church, a vibrant mission-minded church with an emphasis on service to others.

Volunteers work in the Overflow Homeless Shelter, offering love to those less fortunate, knowing they are saving lives both materially and spiritually. Grace’s Kitchen feeds the hungry, serving a hot meal and warm welcome. The AA group meets every day upstairs, coming for healing and support. The Pastoral Counseling Center provides help for those in need.

First Baptist is a busy church, a sacred place, hallowed by God. All are invited to come to church and be renewed by the bonds of holy fellowship.

Worship service is at 10 a.m. with Sunday School for all ages at 10:15 a.m. Sunday’s special music will be brought by soloist Willene Wango.

First Baptist Church is located at 190 Main St. in the center of Brattleboro.
