O God, We thank you that of old this day was hallowed for all who toil, and that from generation to generation weary men and women have found it a shelter and a breathing space, may we affirm that the body cannot rest unless the soul has repose. May we walk this day in your presence, in tranquility of spirit, taking each joy as your gift, and on the morrow return to our labor refreshed and content. This we ask in the name of Jesus, who taught us to pray, saying, “Our Father, who art in heaven... Amen.”

Welcome to First Baptist Church of Penn Yan. We are glad you joined us and hope you’ll feel at home, as we celebrate our faith and praise God together. In the pew in front of you, you will find a “get-to-know-you” card. Please take a moment to fill it out and place it in the offering plate.
We invite you to bring your children to the nursery during the service for a safe and Christian environment so that you may more fully experience Worship. Following today’s service please come to enjoy coffee, refreshments and fellowship in the Great Room.
