      Elevator Fund

Our church’s elevator lift is no longer operational and must be replaced.  Cost of a new lift will be around $35,000.  With many depending on the elevator to get to the lower level of the church, this is an urgent need and we are working to replace the lift as soon as possible.  We hope to have the new elevator installed by the end of February.

We invite you to contribute generously toward a new elevator lift.  Offering envelopes marked “Accessible Facilities Fund” are available in the pews and in the narthex.  You may place your gift in the offering plate or mail to the church office.

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!
