Worship Times

9:45 AM – Sunday School

10:55 AM – Worship Service

Welcome to First Baptist Church, Valley Mills!
We are here to provide a friendly, family environment for worship, Christian education, fellowship, and outreach.  Guests and members alike often comment on the immediate, comfortable acceptance they feel at FBCVM, as well as the care and compassion that they find among our membership.
We believe that the true strength and nature of any church is to be a fellowship of adults, youth and children who use their talents and faith for the causes of Jesus Christ! We invite you to come and to join us as you claim your place in ministry, feed your soul, make Christian friends, and celebrate the Love of God!

What can I expect?

When you arrive, you can expect to be greeted at the door of our Sanctuary by one of our church members.  They are there to welcome you to our service, offer you our worship bulletin, and answer any questions you may have. Our worship style is Creative Traditional.  Our congregation is known for its strong reliance upon prayer, upon the study of God’s Word, and upon the transformational power of the Holy Spirit in our lives.  Our dress is “Sunday casual”.  Children of all ages are welcome to join our worship though we do have nursery facilities for infants and small children provided by a loving staff.

I have more questions.

We encourage you to seek out our church members in our community and let them tell you why they love being a part of our body of believers in Jesus Christ.  To get you started here are the names and contact information for some of our members.

Changing Lives, Building Foundations

This summer, twenty of our students and leaders will be going to Dallas to work with the mission group World Changers. We will train our youth to share the gospel with others as they work repairing and painting the homes of people in need.
Mission trips help our youth to build a spiritual foundation for themselves that they will have for the rest of their lives.
When you register for the Mission 5K Fun Run, your registration fee becomes an investment in the spiritual life of a student that will continue to pay dividends for the rest of that student’s life.
Our youth are a great group of students. They are hard working and love the Lord. Thank you for investing in the spiritual lives of our students.

Sunday School

We offer Sunday School for all ages beginning at 9:45 a.m. every Sunday morning.  Children ages 4 – 6th grade are divided by ages/grades.  Children are taught an introduction to the Bible and what it means to follow Christ. Middle and High School students are invited to our youth group for a time of deeper bible study that provides them with direction on living out Christ-centered lives.  Adults of all ages have many opportunities for Sunday morning bible study.  These groups provide practical applications of the Bible, encouragement in your personal walk with God, and Christian accountability as well as fellowship with other believers.  For more information please contact John Wheatley at

Bible Study

We currently have two Bible study groups – a Men’s Study and a Women’s Study – that meet Sunday evenings.  These studies provide us an opportunity to delve deep into scripture throughout the week and then come together for discussion.  For more information contact John Wheatley at

Prayer Groups

FBCVM has a significant prayer ministry.  We have several groups that regularly meet in our church and an email prayer ministry with over 80 prayer partners.  To find out more about about our prayer ministry please contact our prayer leader Kay Barrett at
