First Baptist Church Ministries

Grow to Maturity in Christ

First Baptist Church of Downers Grove ministries allow you to grow to maturity in Christ as well as provide the opportunity to serve others inside and outside the church! 

 

Whether you join a men's or women's Bible study, bring your kids to youth group, or sing on our Worship Team, we want to encourage growth in your spiritual journey. Please let our church staff know how we can equip you in your walk with Christ, or if we can answer any questions you have about the Christian faith.

 

We currently have a team of amazing leaders serving in our ministries, and we welcome your willingness to serve First Baptist Church's ministries!
