Connecting to

His Church

Welcome Weekend at Edmond’s First Baptist Church is a great time of worship, fellowship, and fun. As the new school year approaches, we see a lot of new faces around the Student Ministry and see a lot of friends returning from family vacations so we have designed Welcome Weekend to bring us together as we kick off the new school year.

Don’t miss out on a great time of hanging out with friends and connecting to the church! We welcome all incoming 7th through 12th grade students to be a part of Welcome Weekend.
