Child Development Center
We operate a 3 star child development center to serve the needs of families with young children by nurturing the total development of young children in a Christian environment. We have a 1-8 teacher student ratio with preschool children from 2 – 5 years of age. We are a full day facility with hours from 7:30-5:30 daily.
Everything we do in our children’s ministry is based on our desire to guide kids and families to take their next step with God. Each week children will learn Godly values through a Bible story, memory verse, and practical application appropriate to their age level. All of these elements are presented in an exciting, interactive, and fun manner that children will enjoy coming back to week after week.
The College Ministry at First Baptist provides a place for local college students to build relationships with each other, develop and strengthen their connections with Christ and serve in the local church. From Appalachian State to Caldwell Community we strive to bring together students to connect, learn, worship and serve at a close, convenient and welcoming church home away from home.
Our lifegroups are small group affinity bible studies that meet at various times throughout the week and year. We offer everything from Beth Moore, Francis Chan and Dave Ramsey studies to studies on Parenting, Grand-parenting and Experiencing God. We also have lifegroups for College and teenagers that meet during the school year. These groups meet on various evenings and the studies last from 6 -12 weeks.
Every day, the world bombards men with mixed messages about success, relationships, and happiness. Now, more than ever, it takes grit to be the kind of men God wants us to be. We are here to stand shoulder-to-shoulder with you as we pursue God’s design for manhood. Through Bible Study, Mission Activities and fellowships we provide an opportunity for men of all ages to grow together in Christ.
Senior Adult Ministry
The Senior Adult Ministry at First Baptist Church gives older adults a wonderful place to connect, learn, worship and serve together. As Blowing Rock continues to grow and attract those of retirement age, our church is a great place for senior adults to make new memories and meaningful friendships that will last for years to come.
Volunteer Ministry is essential at First Baptist Church. We believe that following Christ is about knowing and doing. So your service, is just as important for you as it is for us. No matter what your interests or skills are, there is a place where you can make a difference inside or outside the walls of the church building. Opportunities are available for students and adults. Let us help you take your next step in finding your place to connect through serving on one of our Ministry teams.
The student ministry of First Baptist Church is passionate about the next generation. We do our best to provide relevant environments where students (6th – 12th) can take their next step with God through local and global missions and service opportunities, incredible worship experiences and weekly small groups.

Sunday School / Small Groups
We provide two separate times on Sunday mornings for small group Bible study and fellowship. During the 9:00 Sunday School hour we have a more traditional track that might be considered Sunday School with one class for all ages. This is a book study class using Lifeway curriculum. During our 11:15 small group time our classes are divided by age, life experiences and topic of study. The material studied at 11:15 varies by class with everything from seasonal topical studies, short term bible studies and sermon review and discussion. Regardless of the hour we believe we can help you find a place to fit in, fellowship, make friends and study the Word of God.
Every woman yearns for friends who will walk with her through life’s joys and sorrows. We are ready to join you on that journey. Our Bible studies, fellowships, support groups, and service projects will help you develop deeper relationships with Jesus Christ and other women. Whether you’re looking to build relationships, spend time with other moms or join women in support of missions, we’d love for you to be a part of our Women’s Ministry!
We have a dynamic worship ministry here at First Baptist and our two distinct worship styles provide those with different musical taste and talents a place to serve and share their musical gifts. Our wonderful chancel choir is always looking for members to help as they lead and share in our 11:00 service and at other special events. Our worship team leads in our 9:30 service and is always looking for instrumentalist and singers to join the rotation. From soloist and instrumentalist in both services to those wanting to share a favorite song, our worship and music ministry strives to allow all of our members a place to serve.
