Holy God, your love is like a gentle wind that is forever guiding us along. Yet, how often we forget to say thank you. We believe that it is by our own efforts that we accomplish the deed or posses the reward. In our driveness, we confess we miss the spirit of thanksgiving. Eternal God, renew a spirit of gratitude in our hearts, we ask this in the name of Jesus, who taught us to pray...

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.
