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.

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.

For your convenience hearing devices are available. Please speak with an usher for assistance.
