First Baptist Church of Texas City
From Our Pastor, Robert Miller:
SAVE THE DATE
There are two dates I am asking you to save on your calendar.
Both of these events are significant in the life of First Baptist
Church in Texas City.
The first date is Easter Sunday, April 4, 2021. For over a year, our church attendance has been significantly affected because of the pandemic.
We understood that many of our older and more vulnerable folks should stay away. Hopefully, our most vulnerable have been vaccinated.
I notice that the vaccine is now available to all adults in Texas.
It is time to come back to church!
Easter is the most sacred day of the year for Christians.
Let’s get together to celebrate the resurrection of our Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ! We will have two services:
One at 8:30 a.m. and another at 10:45 a.m. with an egg hunt for our children between the two services at 10:00 a.m.
Celebrate Jesus with your brothers and sisters at First Baptist Church this Easter. Let’s fill God’s house with praise, song, prayer, and rejoicing!
The other date is Sunday, June 6, 2021.
This will be our Building Dedication Service; even though we have been meeting for several months in our new building, we have held off having a dedication service until more of our congregation could attend due to the pandemic.
On Sunday, June 6, 2021, we will dedicate our building, the Grayson Glass Memorial Baptistry, and the Nancy Walker Choir Room.
We will have dinner on the grounds after service, and so there will be plenty of time to fellowship and walk around and look at all the areas of our beautiful building.
It is essential that as a church, we dedicate our facility to the glory of God!
Please put both of these dates on your calendar with plans to
be here on both days.
I can’t wait to see how God is going to use First Baptist Church!

Court Appointed Special Advocates (CASA) of Galveston County is one of over 950 programs in 48 states affiliated with the National CASA/GAL Association for Children. There are 72 CASA programs in Texas.
The mission of CASA of Galveston County is to provide trained community volunteers who advocate for the best interest of abused and neglected children in the foster care system to secure safety and permanency while increasing awareness about child abuse.
Our vision is to provide a CASA for every child who needs one. Becoming a CASA starts with a desire to give back and make a lasting difference in the life of a child and their family. A CASA participates in extensive training in preparation to best serve the children in our community. Our advocates make home visits, collaborate with CPS workers, medical and educational professionals, learn how to write court reports and prepare for court appearances.
Our need for more advocates continues to rise as the reports of abuse and neglect increase in Galveston County. We need 40-50 more advocates to cover all cases currently in the court system.
For more information about volunteering with CASA of Galveston County visit our website at casagalveston.org or contact, Erin Cohen at (409) 927-5595 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
