Curious about God?

You Belong Here!

Life a Mess?

Jesus is the Help for the Helpless!

At The End of Your Rope?

Jesus is the Hope for the Hopeless!

Located just one block North and one block West of Downtown, First Baptist Church of Atwood is a less than thirty minute drive from Arcola, Arthur, Bement, Cerro-Gordo, Garrett, Hammond, Ivesdale, Lovington, Newman, Pesotum, Pierson, Sadorus, and Tuscola!

We are blessed to be a "multi-generational" Church with many active members and attendees of all ages... BUT, we are especially thankful to GOD that HE has blessed us with lots and lots of CHILDREN!

God has used our faithful members who serve in our Nurseries, Sunday School Classes, Children's Church, AWANA, and Jr. & Sr. High School Ministries to bring several young couples, single adults, and Children into our Church!

We worship at 10am every Sunday! We have Sunday School Classes for all ages at 9am. We offer AWANA Clubs for Kids on Wednesdays from 6:30 to 8:00pm during the school year!

Our worship services feature a Bible-driven format of Scripture Reading, Doctrinal Confession, Prayer, Testimonies, a mix of excellent "Southern Gospel", "Traditional Hymns", and "Praise Chorus" singing; and, verse-by-verse expositional preaching through the Books and Doctrines of the Bible. 

Most of our people will dress "Business Casual" on Sunday mornings, and more casually at our other services. You'll see a few jackets and ties on Sunday Mornings... but not many!

We are a happy congregation of about 150 active members and friends. We will usually have about 130 to 140 people here on a Sunday Morning, so there is plenty of room for YOU AND YOUR FAMILY! You will find us to be very friendly and excited to meet you!
