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.
A voice was saying, “Cry out!”
Another said, “What should I cry out?”
“All humanity is grass,
and all its goodness is like the flower of the field.
The grass withers, the flowers fade
when the breath of the LORD blows on them;
indeed, the people are grass.
The grass withers, the flowers fade,
but the word of our God remains forever.”
Isaiah 40:6-8 (HCSB)
Wilbur Gildersleeve is unknown as an author. Often, when no birth/death date are given, it is a pseudonym. Interestingly, “The Great Gildersleeve” was a radio spinoff from “Fibber McGee and Molly.” Gildersleeve was a pompous loudmouth. Our poem points out the narrow-mindedness of such people.
Will the Old Book Stand?
Will the Old Book stand, when the higher critics state,
That grave errors are discovered on its page?
Will it save the sinful soul, will it make the wounded whole?
Will its glorious truths abide from age to age?
Will its message still abide, when the scientists decide,
That its record of Creation is untrue?
Tell us the "Descent of man" is by "Evolution's plan."
Will its principles the sinful heart renew?
When infidels parade, the mistakes which Moses made,
When the truths of revelation they deny;
Will the ten commandments still, the demands of justice fill?
Will its Word sustain us when we die?
When in language wondrous fair, Christian scientists declare,
That there is no evil, only "mortal mind";
When "mental treatment" fails, and "seeming death" prevails,
In the Bible may we consolation find?
Yes, the Word of God will stand, tho' assailed on every hand,
Its foundations are eternally secure.
It will bear the critic's test, and the idle scoffer's jest;
Its saving truths forever shall endure.
—by Wilbur Gildersleeve
We like things that last. My truck is over 20 years old. It looks old but it still meets my needs. I like it. One thing that lasts and lasts but doesn’t get old is the Bible. The Bible’s truths remain and are time tested. I mentioned that Toni and I were reading through the minor prophet Hosea. Several times we commented that Hosea’s descriptions of Israel matched what we see in America today.
Isaiah points out that humanity is like grass and flowers. It looks beautiful for a time, but soon fades. My yard is evidence of this. God’s word, as Isaiah reminds us, remains forever. Moreover, God is in control. When everything around us is changing, often for the worse, God’s Word remains clear, constant, truthful.
My old truck will eventually die and not be worth repairing. The Bible never ages or changes. Don’t follow the Great Gildersleeves of this world. Follow Jesus!
Just pondering, Bro. Rick

The second 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.
