Worship Under the Trees
Sunday, August 30, 9:45 am

Welcome, ISU students!  After the first week of classes, we will be outside on the front lawn for worship.  Please join us as we meet new friends, welcome back returning students, and share in what is always a fun worship service.

We will have a meal following worship.  Drinks and barbecue will be provided; please bring a dish to share.  Students and newcomers, please come as our guests!  You can bring a blanket or lawn chairs, and we'll also have plenty of folding chairs set up.  (We could use some folks at 8:30 to help set up chairs, sound equipment, etc.)

We are an American Baptist congregation located in the heart of the Iowa State University community.  First Baptist is a mix of families, students, current and retired ISU faculty and staff, and folks from all over the Ames community.  We strive for:
  • joyful worship that engages both heart and mind
  • deep fellowship that enriches our life together
  • compassionate service in our community and world 
We are located in Campustown in Ames, one block south of the ISU Memorial Union.  We are "building an inclusive family of faith" and invite you to join us!
