New pastor at First Baptist Church

With a new year underway, First Baptist Church of Mt. Orab is stepping into a new beginning, and welcomes a new Lead Pastor.

Jonathan Lawler and his wife, Tara, are moving to Mt. Orab to lead the church. As a graduate of Southern Seminary in Louisville, and having worked as the General Manager of Chick-fil-A for several years, his formal training, work experience, and volunteer ministry service combine to make him well-suited to help the church develop and refine a fresh vision, mission, and purpose. His life experiences and heart for people equip him for service in the church and to the community.

“I have experienced in my own life how Jesus can turn the painful and difficult circumstances into something beautiful,” said Pastor Jonathan. “I get excited about helping people realize how much God loves them and that there really is a reason to get up each morning because God created them and died for them.

There are several opportunities throughout the week when the members of the FBC family gather to learn and grow, but membership is not required. The programs provided at FBC are funded by members, so there is never a “cover charge” or fee to attend.

FBC extends a standing invitation to join during any weekly gatherings. These include: Bible Study/Sunday School, an interactive time for all ages to get to know others while studying scripture together in a small group setting at 9:45 -10:45 a.m. Sunday.

Praise and Worship, a time of singing and teaching in a large group setting, on11 a.m. and 6 p.m. Sundays. Parents may choose for younger children to participate in kid-friendly activities during these times which are designed to incorporate life truths and values while having fun.

House of Prayer, a time of praying for specific needs and concerns of the church family, community, country and world 7 p.m. Wednesdays.

180 Student Ministry and Teen Bible Study, a time for teens to learn and have fun while getting to know themselves and others 7 p.m. Wednesdays.
