ABOUT FBC

Weddings at FBC

Congratulations on the decision you have made to enter into the covenant of marriage! We believe marriage is a gift from the Lord, given to us in order to put His greatness on display for the world (James 1:17, Matthew 5:14-16). Our desire at First Baptist Church is to help in any way we can to get you ready for your wedding day. More importantly, while we desire couples to have a wonderful wedding day, our greatest passion is for your marriage to bring God the glory He deserves. Please take some time to read over the FBC Wedding Guide about the biblical, lifelong marital commitment you are about to make, as well as FBC’s requirements related to preparing for marriage regarding the use of our facility, as well as pricing, policies, procedures, requirements/qualifications, and much more.

Whether we are providing you a location to get married and/or a pastor to officiate your ceremony, as the body of Christ, we are primarily concerned with God being honored in the process. Since marriage is one of the most important decisions you will ever make, we see it as our responsibility to help best prepare you for marriage. 

For more information, please contact Susan Upham in the pastor’s office at 432.683.0604, or at supham@fbc-midland.org.

May God bless you as you prepare for both your marriage and wedding day!


Funerals at FBC

The death of a loved one is an emotionally stressful and physically draining experience. The family of faith at FBC is committed to helping you through this difficult time in any and every way possible.

If you would like one of our ministers to officiate the service simply let the funeral home know that and they will contact our church office and make the appropriate calls. Our ministers will sit down with you and plan a service that is meaningful to you and that honors your loved one. Your service can be held at the funeral home’s chapel or in our church.

We are able to provide soloists and accompanists for the service as well as planning hymns of faith that will aid in worship and encourage hurting hearts. CD tracks and DVD slide shows are able to be played if given to the media office 24 hours ahead of time.

Our Chapel can accommodate services up to 325 and our Worship Center provides a larger venue.

We also would be happy to plan a meal for the immediate family on the day of the service, or to coordinate a reception following the service for all those who have attended so that they can express their love and support for the family members.

We have a counseling ministry that is available for one-on-one counseling as well as grief support group meetings called Grief Share. You may contact our counseling office at 432.683.0645 for more information. This is offered at no cost to you.
