The Combined Kid’s Choirs of

 Lincoln Christian Church

FISH TALES, the complete saga, is a musical in three parts about gratitude, missions, and Easter using the stories from the Bible about fish. These “Fish Tales” are stories that are “supernatural, completely factual, and actually occurred.” Why? Because these tales come from God’s Word!
Join the Gill family, Taylor, Drew, Cleo, and Gillian as they compete in a fishing tournament while learning about being fishers of men. FISH TALES will get you “hooked” on the Bible!

Join Master’s Praise, Children of Praise, and the Cherub Choir

Who We Are, Where We Are.

Have you ever thought about your identity?  About who you really are on the inside?  On the outside, we carry on many roles.  What we do on the outside demonstrates what’s on the inside.

That’s how it is with the church.  God’s plan is for all to come to Him.  That is where the church comes in.  The church is to lead people, love people, serve and care for others.

At First Baptist Church, we are a church that cares and loves.   We invite you to come worship with us at 101 Broadway St. every Wednesday evening until April 13th.   We offer a free fellowship meal from 5:30 – 6:15 p.m.  At 6:15 – 7:15 p.m., there are activities for the children.  From 6:30 – 7:15 p.m., we offer an adult Bible Study.

Our Sunday schedule begins with Sunday School at 9 a.m. and Worship Service at 10 a.m. with Pastor Robert Henderson.

For more information, please call 217-732-7409.

A Bald-Face Challenge!

On Sunday, January 23rd, Pastor Robert gave the congregation a challenge and the church is committed to meet it.  Pastor Robert has agreed that, if the church can fill the pews on or before Easter Sunday, he will shave his head in front of the congregation.  The estimated capacity is 140 people.  If you don’t have a church home, this is a great opportunity to join in a fun challenge and find a new church home!

First Baptist Church welcomes each of you to God’s house.  As we gather to draw near to God, may we also draw near to those worshiping with us.


Open Arms Christian Fellowship is offering a class for those who have questions about their faith, want to grow deeper in the faith, better defend the faith, and most of all in doing so help bring others to salvation in Jesus Christ.  The Bible tells us in I Peter 3:15, “But sanctify the Lord God in your hearts, and always be ready to give a defense to everyone who asks you a reason for the hope that is in you, with meekness and fear;”   The class is entitled “Essentials of Christian Theology.”   It will answer questions such as, “Does God exist?”  “How do you know?”  “Can we know Him personally?”  Also, we will discuss general vs. special revelation, the Trinity, sin, the deity of Christ, the Bible, the Holy Spirit, salvation, the nature of the church, end times and much more.  Pastor Larry Crawford is teaching the class.  He is currently working on his thesis finishing his Masters in Contemporary Theology at Lincoln Christian University.  The class is available to the public.  It meets every Sunday 9:00 AM – 9:45 AM at 311 Broadway in the church’s fellowship hall.  For more information, call the church office at 217-732-4800.       

 April 2 Immanuel Lutheran Church, 1409 Pulaski Street in Lincoln, is hosting a free soup supper for all from 6:00-7:00. "Hot Soup for Cold Nights" is open to anyone. A relaxed worship service is at 5:00 for those interested.
