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.
A fifth grade teacher in a Christian school asked her class to look at
TV commercials and see if they could use them in
some way to communicate ideas about God.
Here are some of the results:
• God is like Bayer Aspirin... He works miracles.
• God is like a Ford... He's got a better idea.
• God is like a Coke... He's the real thing.
• God is like Hallmark Cards... He cares enough to send His very best.
• God is like Tide... He gets the stains out that others leave behind.
