I have enjoyed worshiping with you all at our drive-up services. Due to the potential for thunderstorms this Sunday, we are going to post an online worship service through our YouTube account at 11:00 am this Sunday.  We have not moved back into the sanctuary yet because the current social distancing guidelines would have been difficult to implement in our sanctuary. It made sense to err on the side of caution and extend the alternative means of worship for two more weeks. On Monday the 18th, the  deacons are going to meet and discuss our options for resuming worship together in the building after we hear the governor’s report concerning guidelines for churches as we enter phase two of the COVID-19 recovery. We will let you know through Facebook, the Lamplighter, and other means of communication our plans for resuming worship in the building. My hope is that we will be able to resume worship in the sanctuary on May 24, but the deacons will pray and discuss what is best for our church to do going forward. Thank you for being flexible and continue to pray for our country and the world to move past this pandemic.

     Let me encourage you to sign up for the LifeShare Blood Drive that will be taking place at our church on May 24 from 12:30-5:30 pm. You can sign up for an appointment to donate at Click Here. The link will be on our Facebook page if you do not want to type it in. Blood supplies have been running low during this pandemic and so it is paramount that they get more blood. It is one way we can serve our community during this time.

     If you have neighbors, coworkers, or family members who are lost, this is an opportune time to share the gospel since people are anxious about the future. As believers, God has blessed us with the knowledge that whatever comes our way in the end we will be with him for eternity because of Christ’s death and resurrection. The gospel message never gets old and it is the hope that the world needs to hear. I love you all and look forward to the days ahead knowing that God has called us to boldly proclaim and live out the implications of the gospel.


In Christ,

Brother Ty


This Wednesday we are finishing up The Storyteller series by looking at the parable of the prodigal son in Luke 15. We are   going to dig in and see that over and over we do the same and we need to run back to God! Join us on YouTube and dig into Scripture with us!

”I was glad when they said unto me, Let us go into the house of the Lord.” Psalm 122:1

I really enjoyed our service last Sunday. I’m glad we have the capabilities to have an outdoor service. I am also looking forward to the day we can meet inside our Sanctuary again. But as the saying goes, “better safe than sorry.”

Choir Members: I will contact you about our rehearsals when we are able to gather again. We will probably meet in the Sanctuary (not in the choir loft) so that we can have adequate spacing.

Please continue to pray that we will have Godly wisdom. Some churches have already opened their doors. I’m not sure it’s time for that yet. We will follow the guidelines set forth by the state. Also, just because we can meet together again doesn’t mean we should.

Love to you all,
                                                                     Bro. Bob

The FBC Music Minister search committee has been working diligently since February to find the person God has for us at First Baptist Church, Hamburg. We have received 19 resumes.   After carefully reviewing all of these, we found a couple that looked promising. Long story short, none of these has panned out.


As a result we are re-announcing the position to every available outlet we can think of.   This is where you, the membership of the church come in.

    1) If you know of someone that you think might be interested in the position, please contact us.

    2) If you know someone that might know someone that might be interested, please let one of the committee members know and we will follow up on it.


We knew going in that this search might not be easy. At the same time we also know God has the right person out there for                                                                                                  FBC Hamburg.


                                                                                                                              We covet your prayers as we continue the search.
