Welcome to First Baptist of Lorida's web site. It is an honor for you to stop for just a moment to check us out. God is so good and always faithful and if nothing else that's the message we want our web site to tell you. Man, has it been a tough time with COVID and all that came with it. It has caused some to be isolated to the point of depression, it has stressed families in the not being able to get out and financially as well. It has brought a high cost in the deaths of so many family members but in all of it God has been faithful to us. He has given mankind the means to develop vaccines but most importantly He has never stopped loving us. More and more God's children are gathering for worship again. Restaurants and businesses are becoming fully open. In other words our lives are beginning to come back together. I didn't say normal because I pray we never take forgranted our live again as we had before this. So let's do life together. Us as our church family along with you and with Jesus Christ in the center of us all. Enjoy our web site and come by and meet us here at Lorida Florida. We'd love to see you.

                  God Grant you Peace and Joy

Alert, Alert

First Baptist Church is looking for two people God is calling to serve here. Someone who is called to lead children and someone who is called to lead music. You can call the office at 863-655-1878 and someone from personel will be in contact with you. Again if you have been feeling the call to do either of these and you live in the area or out of the area you are exactly who we are looking for. God's plan God's person. 


CALLING ALL KIDS PRE-K THROUGH 5TH GRADE. Time to make memories that last a lifetime! It's time for Vacation Bible School where you will have lots of fun and learn through adventures of Rocky Railway. You will learn how "Jesus' power pulls us through." What fun with stories, crafts, snacks, videos, and music.  You don't want to miss a minute beginning Monday, July 26 through Friday, July 30 from 6:30 pm through 8:00 pm.


It's time for our annual yard event where we give away backpacks and some school supplies as the students start back to school. We have 50 backpacks which will be given away on a first come, first served basis from 9:00 am until 11:00 am (or until supplies are gone.) We pray for blessings on our children as they go back to school for a successful and wonderful experience this year.

Men's Fellowship

Calling all men!  A men's fellowship will be held on Friday, August 5 at 6:30 pm. All men are invited to join and enjoy getting to know each better.  There will be light snacks with Danny Pursell as host.

Pastors Heart

    It's summer time and it's a great time to come by here at First Baptist Church of Lorida and see all the exciting things going on. We will start our Olympian summer today Wednesday June 9th and it will be every Wednesday till July 21st from 12:30pm till 2pm. For ages 4 years old to 5th grade. It's going to be fun. We also have Wednesday Prayer time at 6:30 and then on Sunday we have our Sunday School from 9am to 10am with our worship time starting at 10:30. That night at 6:30 we come together again for singing and time in God's word. So come on and join us, our hope is that this is a place where you can discover God's love. Everyone is welcome and I pray always made to feel welcome. We sing hymns and an occasional contemporary is also worked in. We are casual and friendly but most of all we gather at all these times to give praise and honor to our Lord Jesus Christ. We have a Facebook page FBCLorida and of course this web site, so check us out. Mike and I would love to see you and meet you. Have a great summer and I hope to see you soon.
