We wish you the warmest welcome to First Baptist Church and are glad you have chosen to worship with us today. Our continual prayer is that our services will glorify God through his worship and the preaching of his word.
As our guest, we ask you to consider filling out a Connect Card. We’d love to know you were with us today and share a gift with you if possible. Likewise, please browse the FBCN Web App using the menus above. Through this app you can learn about our ministries, interact with us and even catch up on sermons from earlier in our schedule that you may have missed. We stream our services each week and archive them after a few months. It’s likely that you joined us in the middle of a series, but all earlier contents are available if you wish to catch up on our current study. Our app is also a permanent point of contact through the same Connect Card. If you make a decision, have a prayer request, or otherwise would like to interact with us, please feel free to submit a card with your request.
FBC Needville is oriented toward the historic understanding of the five-function church mission. Discipleship, Evangelism, Fellowship, Ministry, and Worship are the heart and soul of our practice as we orient ourselves toward these essential functions regularly. We have teams of faithful and dedicated workers serving in each of these ministry focuses year around. We also hope that you will find us a welcoming and friendly church. We’re truly glad you are with us and will do whatever we can to make our ministry to you worth your time and involvement.
How I love Your instruction!
It is my meditation all day long.
Psalm 119:97 (HCSB)
Alfred P. Gibbs was born in England and raised in South Africa. He was led to salvation by his twin brother. He attended and worked at Moody Bible College. He never married and spent most of his career as a traveling evangelist. He wrote songs for the church and wrote training materials for young Christians.
Precious Holy Bible
Precious holy Bible, treasure rich and rare,
Word of God eternal, balm for every care;
God's full revelation, of the sin of man,
And of Christ's redemption, and salvation's plan.
Word that life bestoweth, food the soul to stay,
Armor that protecteth, counsel for each day;
Promises abundant, lamp of truth to lead,
Always all-sufficient for each time of need!
May we read these Scriptures, and their truths believe,
Own our need as sinners, and God's Son receive;
In assurance resting, His commands obey,
And in His grace growing, live for Him each day!
—by Alfred P. Gibbs (1890-1967)
This week has really focused on the Scriptures. My daily devotion was about reading and studying God’s Word every day. My devotion for our Men’s Prayer Breakfast about family leadership included God’s Word as a resource for leading our families. In this hymn, Alfred Gibbs reminds us how much of a treasure the Bible is for us.
As I read through this hymn, Gibbs was very precise in his word choices. Often, the creative side leads the writer to flowery imagery. Here Gibbs stays on point. He also walks us through the plan of salvation. We are sinners in need of Christ’s redemption. The final stanza reminds us of God’s love and the need for us to be obedient in living for Him by sharing God’s plan to those around us.
This is Memorial Weekend. It is a time for us to remember the men and women who gave their lives for our freedom. What a sacrifice. The ultimate sacrifice is Christ on the cross, dying for our sins. Let’s remember that show of love.
Just pondering, Bro. Rick

The first quarter finds us behind in our giving. Our spending is below the budget. Please pray about your giving.
The Stewardship Team purchased a CD using monies from our special funds. The interest earned will help offset our deficit.
Praying for our church has started showing real tangible benefits – God is putting it on people’s hearts to step up to meet the demand of His church in unprecedented ways. Multiple members are giving specifically to funds that are meaningful to them. In addition to traditional funds supported - like STCH, Youth, and Ukraine Relief - new funds receiving support include Meals, Bereavement, Lights, Local Projects, Piano Fund, Breakfast, and Outreach. At least two new ministries of the church have been newly enacted – the Cards Ministry and the Pray-For-Me Ministry – both which reach out to our community. We encourage all Members to find a ministry or need of the church and participate in fulling that mission, either thru volunteering or thru financial support.
