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.
For the word of God is living and effective and sharper than any double-edged sword, penetrating as far as the separation of soul and spirit, joints and marrow. It is able to judge the ideas and thoughts of the heart. Hebrews 4:12 (HCSB)
Isaac Watts, the great English Hymn writer, again makes an appearance. As a young lad, he complained to his father that there was no fervor in the church’s hymn singing. His dad challenged him to compose something better. He took the challenge and wrote nearly 600 hymns.
Lord, I Have Made Thy Word My Choice
Lord, I have made Thy Word my choice,
My lasting heritage;
There shall my noblest powers rejoice,
My warmest thoughts engage.
I’ll read the histories of Thy love,
And keep Thy laws in sight,
While through the promises I rove,
With ever fresh delight.
'Tis a broad land of wealth unknown,
Where springs of life arise,
Seeds of immortal bliss are sown,
And hidden glory lies.
The best relief that mourners have,
It makes our sorrows blest;
Our fairest hope beyond the grave,
And our eternal rest.
—by Isaac Watts (1674-1748)
When Watts was just beginning in the ministry, hymn singing was limited to the psalms. He turned those psalms on their ear and explored the entire scripture in verse. He understood that God’s Word was living and effective.
In the second stanza, he writes of studying scripture with a fresh delight. Do you read scripture that way? God’s Word wants to speak to you, to challenge you, to love you into a deeper relationship with God. Make God’s Word your choice.
Just pondering, Bro. Rick

January – December 2022
Budget 2022 YTD $ 234,559
Income – Jan-Dec $ 214,001
Expenses – Jan-Dec $ 220,770
Net $ (6,769)
Expenses for 2022 were under budget by $13,800 [almost 6% lower], but income was down by more than $20,000 [almost 9%].
We posted a loss for the year, which is actual expense against actual income [not related to Budget], but that is not of excessive concern, and we praise the Lord for His providence.
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.
