Recreational Ministries

Positional Statement: We use the recreation to build the 'team attitude' necessary for effective ministry. Our church builds the bonds of ministry as we play together.

UpWard Basketball & Cheerleading

Our church sponsors the UpWard ministry for the community of Jena and for
the surrounding area. Children, first grade through eighth grade, participate in the UpWard ministry. The Upward season runs from January through March.

Youth Recreation

Our youth and their friends enjoy the use of our Family Life Center's gym and game room. The church schedules recreational events for youth, grades six through twelve.

Church-Wide Recreation

Our church family enjoys recreational events in the Family Life Center. Game nights, Sunday School class events and senior adult recreational events are scheduled through the year.

Fellowship Meals

First Baptist celebrates many events with a meal. Our church's Meal Director prepares a wholesome meal in our commercial-grade kitchen. Wednesday night suppers and Sunday lunches are favorites of our members.
