FBC has a wide variety of new programs. They have recently started a contemporary worship service which is at 8:28 on Sunday mornings. There is also a great young couple's Sunday School class you could look into. Additionally, they have a wide variety of groups, ministries, etc. you could get involved in and meet a great group of people who are active in the community. And they have a wonderful and highly children's ministry if you are looking toward that in the future. Regular Sunday services are at 10:45. You should definitely check them out!

Church full of rich old white folks. If you are one of these you will fit in real well. If you are a mixed couple you need to go to Hillcrest or Edgewood. Music minister is good and that is all they have going for them now as they do not have a Pastor. Like most inner city churches, I do not see this church being in existence in 5-10 years as most of the members are old.

church and religion is a total waste of time, abuse/brainwash children, and is a fear/guilt factory that dishes out lie after lie.

We are TOO smart for this foolish stuff!!!!

Forget the church. Rise above the lies!! Use your brain.

Don't know too much about FBC except that there's some great people that go there. As far as the daycare at First Baptist, let's just say it's NOTHING like it used to be. I won't get into the details, but for the record...the root problem is the director. Trust me. Everything started to go downhill the moment she was given the position.

My daughter attends the 3 and 4 year old program and she says all her teacher does is text. Everything is falling apart there. They cover pretty good I actually adored my child's teacher until she came home saying this. A bunch of moms are doing some work and research on their own. It's not just the director, lazy workers, young workers, my daughters teacher is white, young, carefree probably texting friends all day!

Looks like no supervision at all. Most of the staff has them cell phones and all they do is text and look at Facebook. Need some leadership at all levels!

Although ms. Cole is not the teacher in question. A young lady I believe who fills in? I will try to find out the name. Just thought I should mention that!

My grandchildren attend First Baptist and they love it there. We love their teachers and the director. Before this director came, you would never see her. This director is there from early morning to late afternoon. She is in the classrooms more than amy other director since I have been going there. As far as the cell phone, I know for a fact that alot of the time the teachers are texting parents about infromation concerning their child. Some people see a small window and draw big conclusion. If you are so unhappy with the daycare, you should go someplace else. You may be surprised at what you find.

Cameras need to be installed in every daycare, preschool etc that would put a end to everything. Parents would then have access to log in and watch anytime they wanted.
I know there are good teachers out there. Teachers that are actually concerned with the child's well being and not just seeing a paycheck. But you are not going to find that in a daycare full of young teens and adults working. They may like there job, they may be dependable, but its still just a check.
I know of a few good seasoned teachers there that I would highly recommend. Lou, she is wonderful, kids love her, been there a long time, and older with kids of her own
Kelley, once again older, mature, experienced been there a long time
Donna, don't know if she is still there, but she was good
Brenda was wonderful. Not the friendliest fish in the sea, but good at what she did
Kristi, she's gone now. Kids loved her, she loved them, parents loved her
Whitley is a gem

Yea Brenda was real wonderful, she got fired because she left a little girl down in the basement play room. And by gem...I know you must have meant gen-x as she is the true definition, not to mention she has herpes. Hope she washes her hand real well before she lays them on your precious child WORRIED. The only one you mentioned that was worth mentioning was Lou, atleast you got one thing correct. There are plenty of other great teachers just none That WORRIED mentioned.

I like to get on this site every now and then to see some valid discussions but then when you look at how easy it is for people to put down others and spread rumors and gossip,you realize how easy it is when you do not use your own name.I attend FBC and it is a very good place to hear about the word of God and to learn how to apply it to your life,every daycare in Hoptown gets a bad rap sometimes,just like where people work you gonna complain about something no matter what.My daughter went all the through their daycare and plus the redhouse across the street when it was open,and I highly reccommend the daycare.Thank you.
