Welcome to -
Baptist Church of Dearborn
are invited to join us for worship each Sunday morning at 10 a.m.
to serve God, our neighbor and each other
to help non-believers become believers and believers become disciples who are
to grow the Kingdom of God in our community and the world.
First Baptist Church of Dearborn (a barrier free church) was founded in 1924 and is affiliated with American Baptist Churches USA.
Update from Leadership: To keep everyone up-to-date on what’s happening at FBC we want to share some information that you may have missed if you were unable to attend our last meeting.
We have set December 31, 2014 as the last day the church will be open,
Pastor Diana has given us her letter of resignation effective January 1, 2015.
You will find a copy of the letter in this newsletter.
We have entered into a 6 month contract with a realtor who specializes in church property. The initial listing price is $995,000.
One of our next steps is to determine where our assets will go if we sell the building. In regards to the asset distribution Jack Linton has made a list of possible organizations we could support with our assets. All assets that we have must go to an American Baptist organization according to our constitution. You can get a copy of this list in the church office. We are asking everyone to check this list and if you have any other American Baptist organization you would like leadership to consider let us know by Oct. 12.
Another step we must take before Dec 31 is to set up a five member team who will oversee all issues concerning the building and oversee the legal process of dissolving FBC. This team will take on these responsibilities in 2015. This will include a leader, a secretary, a treasurer and 2 other members. If anyone is interested in serving on this team please let leadership know by Oct.12.
We will have a business meeting On Nov.9 immediately after worship to vote on these two items – where our assets will be distributed and who will serve on the team of trustees.
We have another event happening at FBC on Sat., Oct 11. We will have a potluck lunch at 12:00 followed by a discussion time about other churches in our area. This is a time for us to get together and learn things about the churches we may consider attending in 2015.
So put the following dates on your calendars: Oct. 11 – potluck lunch; Oct. 12 information to leadership about our assets and about serving on the team going forward; Oct. 25-26 our 90th celebration; Nov. 6 business meeting
