Where We Are

1002 Avenue C
Gothenburg, NE 69138

Sunday Morning

  • Worship @ 9:45 am
  • Sunday School @ 11:00 am

We invite you to join our church family for worship each week as we seek to express our Love for God and our Love for People. The atmosphere is relaxed and friendly, with a mix of music styles and relevant teaching based on solid Biblical doctrine to help us grow in our faith. Children are welcome in our service, or a nursery is available for young children if you wish to use it.

Since worship is more than music and preaching, we hope you stay for another hour and join us for coffee and fellowship as we seek build bonds of love for one another and engage in age specific Bible teaching for all.

Our Ministries


We are excited for another fun filled year of Sparks!

The goal of Awana is to reach boys and girls with the gospel of Christ and train them to serve Him. At First Baptist Church we are honored to work with students from Kindergarten to Second grade.

The 2019-2020 year will start off on September 4th with a night for registration from 6:30-7:30. This is a great opportunity for parents to meet the leaders who will be teaching and training the clubbers in God’s word. Can’t make it then, that is ok, you can register any time.

We had a wonderful 2018-2019 year with two of our clubbers indicating they accepted Jesus as their Lord and Savior! A big thank you to all the people who helped with Sparks this last year without them this ministry would not be possible.
