Our church has a prayer room where we have 2-person teams praying each Sunday
morning during worship service especially for decisions that are being made during that service.
We also pray for any specific prayer needs which are taken during our morning Bible Study and
delivered to the prayer room.
Our prayer room offers reading materials relating to many areas of prayer. There are books
you may check out and materials related to praying for missionaries that you may
take to guide you in your prayer life.
We always welcome new prayer members to our team. Let us know if you are interested.
CRISIS PRAYER CHAIN
We have an active 24-hour crisis Prayer Chain ministry with many diligent members who are available
to pray for those needing prayer in crisis situations. Each prayer need is passed along the
entire list of names making up our “chain”. This ministry, too, is always open to new members
should you feel a desire to serve in this area.
Our Music Ministry
Our music is led by our Interim Minister of Music. We use a variety
of different musical styles in our services including hymn favorites, contemporary, praise and worship
music, using C.D.’s or piano and organ. We also have a background choir on Sunday mornings.
Our choir also performs a Christmas Cantata, a concert featuring selected Christmas theme songs
along with narraration. Our choir also performs special music on selected Sundays.
Our choir meets on Sunday afternoon at 5 p.m. before evening service, new voices are always
encouraged to join.
We also have a concert series, each featuring a different southern gospel or Christian group.
These concerts are usually held during our Sunday evening worship time.
Our children’s ministry performs a Christmas play and/or musical each year and is always
very entertaining to watch.
Our church uses overhead projectors with lyrics to the music, or our hymnals are under the seats
for your convenience.

Parish Nursing is a recognized specialty practice that combines professional nursing with
Faith/health ministry. Parish nursing emphasizes health and healing within the faith community.
Parish nursing is rooted in the Judeo-Christian tradition and is consistent with the basic assumption
that we as Christians, care for self and others as an expression of God’s love.
Here at First Baptist Church of Junction City (FBCJC), we strive to extend His love by helping
fellow parishioners in learning and putting into every day activities the concepts which affect
us physically, spiritually, etc. By doing these things, we uphold the Biblical truth that our body
is the “temple” of God and it is our responsibility to care for His temple.
The Parish nursing ministry at FBCJC is coordinated by Janet Johnson, RN/BC/PN.
Other Members include:
Merle Montgomery, RN
Lynn Holsclaw, RN
There are others who assist as needed to provide support to the committee.
