What is Discover First?
The purpose of Discover First is to introduce guests to the church and to help new members accomplish the following: become significantly engaged with others; grow in their relationship with Christ; get involved in missions, evangelism, and ministry; and familiarize themselves with member expectations at First Baptist Church Tuscaloosa. Discover First classes are also open to current members who wish to learn how to become involved in the ministries of the church on a deeper level or to a greater capacity. Completion of the four Discover First classes is a prerequisite for membership with First Baptist Church Tuscaloosa.
Discover First consists of four classes: Discover Membership, Discover Maturity in Christ, Discover Missions and Evangelism, and Discover Ministry. Each month First Baptist offers the Discover First series as a one-day event, usually on either the first or second Sunday of the month. These classes have been developed by our staff and are led by various ministerial staff members. By the end of the series, participants will understand church membership, discover their spiritual gifts, and identify which areas of ministry in the church are ideal for them based on their unique gifting and passions.
To sign up for a Discover First One-Day Event (and to reserve childcare for the afternoon sessions), please contact Barbara Smith in the main church office at 205-345-7554 or at firstname.lastname@example.org.
