Have you ever wondered if there were churches around that would reflect the love of God, the very character of Jesus? First Baptist of Bedford is such a church family. We worship together at 10:00 am on Sundays and have a time of “Growing Together” for Children and conversation groups for adults and teens at 11:15am till noon. Come discover the authentic love of a multi-ethnic, multi-generational Christian fellowship. OUR VIDEOS are on YOUTUBE.

Dr. Scott Arnold) “Prophets and Politics” (Being challenged by the Word of God from Jeremiah and Isaiah). This series explores how believers live with the tension of being advocates of both God’s reconciliation and God’s righteousness. Pastor Scott is also trained in Urban Planning and Urban Ministry. His favorite passage is from II Corinthians 5 where believers are called to be “ambassadors” of the gospel of reconciliation in Christ. Ambassadors are called to maintain their values while reaching out to establish peace and redemptive relationships.CONNECTIONS:Our ministries are now expanding into our renovated chapel building which we call “Connections”. Art Classes taught by Pastor Scott take place at the “Chat and Craft Cafe” at the lower level of Connections, these are held on Monday afternoons (after school) for all ages from 3:30pm until 4:30pm. A “Friends Support Bible Study Group” has begun, it will continue in September 21st on Wednesdays at the Church Connections lower level (151 Concord Rd) 10:30 -11:30am. Bedford’s “Kamate Fitness” classes are taking place in the upper level of “Connections” many mornings and evenings. These fitness classes are part of the Town of Bedford’s programming. Currently, the church is open to consider other “non-profit” groups for rental use of the facility and for various meetings and get togethers.CHILDREN’S MINISTRIES OVERVIEW: We all stay together in worship: The Children’s messages during worship are followed by a time for the children to work at crafts/legos on tables in the back of the sanctuary. Toddlers and infants are watched as needed in the nursery by ready staff and volunteers. Linda Blades (who is a seasoned Montessori children’s educator) is our children’s and youth minister. GROWING TOGETHER (Sunday School) uses the “Godly Play” curriculum and “Share Faith” curriculum. Classes are downstairs following worship from 11:10 am till 12 noon. Students will receive a snack downstairs and then return up to the sanctuary to sing prior to their lesson. During the year we have special events and Vacation Bible School in the Summer.
