Prayer Walk

Our local schools — elementary, middle and high school —
have given us permission to walk the school grounds and
pray for the teachers and students.

The kids are headed back to school in a couple of weeks.

Come join us on the 1st Sunday of every month @ 4PM in the FLC as we break into groups to go "prayer walking" around the schools to pray for our teachers and students.

We see the need to continue these prayer walks monthly.

The Lord commissioned us as Christians to GO and
Spread the Good News. . ..
Are you willing?
(If you aren't able to walk during these prayer times,
bring a chair to sit in.)


Saturday, August 11 

10:00AM – 1:00PM

Family Life Center

We will give away backpacks to those children in the Chocowinity community who may not be able to afford one.

The children must be of primary and middle school age.  We will also be taking some backpacks to the Chocowinity Primary and Middle schools for the school's discretion in handing out.



On Saturday, August 11 at 9:30 AM in the FLC we need help with filling out paperwork, name, address, etc. and taking each child to make their choice of the various backpacks.

Pastor Search Committee Report

Each month, the congregation will be given a report as to the progress of the search for the man God has been preparing to send to us here at FBCC.

We thank you for your prayers, and we ask that you continue praying daily as we begin the awesome task of going through the recent resumes we have received from potential candidates for the position of full-time pastor.

Your Pastor Search Committee members are:

Brad Smith, Leader

Sharon Dimsdale, Secretary

Mollie McGhee, Prayer Coordinator

Jimmy Beasley

Join the women of the WMU as we plan our fall/winter activities on Saturday, August 18 at 9:30 AM.


On September 2 our children's church is changing its format! Drop your child/grandchild off at the FLC before worship service. 

All children aged 4 – 10 years old are welcome to join the new Children's Church service.

If you would like to volunteer to help with this children's ministry, please see Lola Dixon or Pastor Jack.

About Us

FBC Chocowinity was founded as a community-oriented Baptist Church. It began as a mission of the First Baptist Church in Chocowinity, North Carolina. Our services were held in J. D. Thomas' store at the Chocowinity Crossroads near the old Hughes School in 1909. Mrs. P. R. Calias, W. C. Miller, and S. P. Willis were the founders of our church. In 1911, with 11 members, the mission became true.

We welcome everyone to become a part of our church and our family. We want people to feel and share the love of Christ. Our mission is to be diligent to show ourselves approved unto God, workers that are not ashamed in demonstrating this commitment by sharing His Word and His humility without thoughts of ourselves.

Thank you for your interest. We look forward to hearing from you soon.
