Manhood RestoredBeginning on Wednesday, April 20th, Brent Phillips will lead Manhood Restored: How the Gospel Makes Men Whole. This study is written by Dr. Eric Mason, founder and lead pastor of Epiphany Fellowship in Philadelphia, PA and founder of Thriving Inc.

This men’s Bible study is designed to foster personal spiritual growth through individual time spent with the content. Manhood will always be in crisis until Jesus returns. But in Christ, men can be restored with ever increasing glory into the undefiled image of God. This six-session study leads men on a journey through masculinity, with Bible study sessions on the problems men face, God’s solutions, and the restorations of worldview, sexuality, vision, and family.

Although this study is theologically rich, it also has very practical components to give men the beginning steps to walk in gospel-centered manhood, including individual journaling exercises and personal interviews and testimonials included in the study videos.

Manhood Restored: How the Gospel Makes Men Whole will meet Wednesdays in Room 315 at First Baptist Owensboro, beginning on April 20th and ending on May 25th. If you have any questions, contact Brent at

Seamless Book2Beginning on Wednesday, April 13th, we will be going through Seamless, a study by Angie Smith. You may remember Angie from our Connecting Women Conference last November!

Seamless is a seven week study that encompasses the entire Bible. It covers the people, places, and promises of the Bible, tying them together into the greater story of Scripture. We’ll gain an overarching understanding of the fundamental layout and meaning of God’s Word, along with learning how the scripture ties together into the seamless truth of the gospel message.

Seamless will meet Wednesdays in Room 202 at First Baptist Owensboro, beginning on April 13th and ending on May 25th. If you have any questions, contact Cheryl at We hope you’ll join us for Seamless!

Since we were unable to have our egg hunt this past Saturday, we have decided to do two things:

1. We will be in the English Park area this Friday, March 25th (undetermined time) passing out bags of filled eggs throughout the neighborhood.

2. We are donating the remainder of our filled eggs to this Saturday’s Eggstravanza to be hosted at Kentucky Wesleyan College (see picture).

We hope you all will be able to make it to Saturday’s hunt! And if you don’t have a church to attend this Easter Sunday, we would love to have you at First Baptist (downtown next to the bridge)! We have a traditional service at 8:30 AM, a contemporary service at 11 AM, and Sunday School in between at 9:45 AM. Happy Easter!
