It is my privilege to welcome you to the website of First Baptist Church Washington. We are a community of believers who come from various backgrounds. Although we are different in many ways, we share a common conviction-our lives have been transformed by the love of God through the gift of His Son, Jesus. Our goal is to be a church that is

Following | Discipling | Serving 

for God's glory. It is my hope that you will take the time to see how God is using this church family to reach our community and our world.

Please be our guest for worship and Bible study. We would love to have the opportunity to minister to you. We are waiting for you!

In Him (Phil. 4:13)

Pastor Marvin Kehl

We are SO excited to be back inside our church on Sunday and we hope that you and your kids will be joining us! These are strange and different times in our world and things will be a little different when we get back to church too.


Even though we will be back to having church inside, it will still be a few more weeks before we open our children’s department and nursery, including having Children’s Church. Since your child may not be used to sitting in “Big Church” with you, here are some things we want you to consider to help your child engage in our service:


Relax! It’s OK to let kids be kids here!


Sit Close! Consider sitting toward the front where it is easier for kids to see what’s going on in the service.


Explain! Quietly explain the different parts of the service to your kids so they can understand what’s going on.


Join in! Kids learn by copying what they see! So, if you sing, respond, pray, and engage in the service, your kids will too!


Need to step out? Sometimes kids just need a break. Feel free to step out with them if you need to, but please come back!


Please know that we LOVE having your kids in our church! If they make noise, it will seem a lot louder to you than those around you. What may seem like a distraction to you may actually seem like a blessing to others!


We have made activity baggies for kids ages 2 - 6th grade to help keep them engaged. These will be available in the foyer on your way into the service.


We are looking forward to worshipping with you on Sunday!
