First Baptist Church of ApolloFirst Baptist Church of Apollo, Apollo

In 2005 the First Baptist Church of Apollo had less than a handful of people attending and although they didn’t want to really think about it, closing the church was a real possibility. Today the church has up to 150 people with a high percentage of them being members, and is still growing. Quite a change for a congregation that believed it had seen its last days! First Baptist is a church that energetically preaches the word of God, has adult bible study on Wednesdays at 7:00 p.m., Women’s bible study on the last Tuesday of the month, Youth group (all Ages) on Wednesdays at 7 p.m., and Men’s bible study every other Thursday. On the 5th Sunday the church meets and greets at a luncheon. The congregation finds strength in working and fellow shipping together and supporting each other. A strong bible believing church, they also are a family oriented church with a balance of the very young to the old.
