Visitors - 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.

 

You are invited 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.


 

Jesus -

 God's Valentine to You!
