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.


Today’s anthem ~ “FROM SEA TO SHINING SEA”


A  three piece medley that the congregation is invited to participate in.

Below are the words for your part.


God of Our Fathers

God of our fathers whose almighty hand

Leads forth in beauty all the starry band

Of shining worlds in splendor through the skies

Our grateful songs before Thy throne arise.


America the Beautiful

O beautiful for spacious skies for amber waves of grain

For purple mountain majesties above the fruited plain

America, America, God shed His grace on thee

And crown thy good with brotherhood

From sea to shining sea.



My country 'tis of thee

Sweet land of liberty of thee I sing

Land where my fathers died

Land of the pilgrim's pride

From every mountain side

Let freedom ring.


We hold these truths to be self-evident,

that all men are created equal,

that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights,

that among these are Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness.
