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 the Great Room to enjoy coffee, tea, refreshments and fellowship.

He is Risen Indeed!
