*Invocation                                                                          Cindy Ovens

Heavenly Father, You are worthy of a greater love than we can either give or understand. We ask you to fill our hearts with such love for you than nothing may seem too hard for us to do or to suffer in obedience to you. Grant that by loving you so, we may become daily more like you and finally obtain the everlasting life that you have promised to those who truly love you; through Jesus Christ our Lord who taught us to pray...

The Bigger Breakfast – The International Men's Breakfast Day

Saturday, September 25

Imagine the power of thousands of men worldwide simultaneously raising their voices in praises and prayer. Be a part of that power! Baptist men across the United States and Canada will be joining Baptist Men in Europe and Africa on Sept. 25, for a “somewhat simultaneous” men's breakfast.

Begun in the United Kingdom in 2008, Baptist Men from across England gathered in churches, homes, and restaurants at 9 am for breakfast and more. Besides sharing a meal, the Bigger Breakfast became the forum for challenging men to focus on their role as spiritual leaders.

Please join with men all across the world for this year's International Bigger Breakfast at Hillview Community Church, 7382 O'Brien Rd. Baldwinsville, NY 13027.   Breakfast at 8:30 am sharp.

Email,, or phone 315-638-0357.

Please see Ed Castillo for travel information and reservations.

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.


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



The grass isn't greener on the other side,

it's greener where it is watered.
