Volunteer at First Baptist Decatur


Looking for a fun way to get more involved at First Baptist Decatur? We have a few opportunities available you might be interested in.


We are looking for 10 people who would be willing to help rock and care for THREE infants! There will be 3 CBF Field Personnel couples who will be attending meetings across the street at CBF who are in need of childcare for their infants while they are in meetings.

We are looking for two people to sign up for each of the following shifts: 8:30-1:00 Wednesday (11/13) and Thursday (11/14), 1:00-5:30 Wednesday (11/13) and Thursday (11/14), and 8:30-1:00 on Friday (11/15). If you are willing to come help care for these little ones, please contact Pastor Kristen at kkoger@fbcdecatur.com.

We are also looking for some baby items to borrow for these two days. If you have any of the following, please let Pastor Kristen know: a pack and play, a baby bouncer seat, an infant swing. Items can be dropped off at the church anytime this week or next week and will be available for pickup Sunday (11/17).

Thank you so much for helping us provide care for these infants and supporting their parents as they do the hard work of being parents while being field personnel in countries in Asia.


With the coming of cold weather, there is an important need of providing warmth for our neighbors. Decatur United Methodist Church is providing the Shelter, and there is a need for support from our congregation. 

The Shelter will open on nights when the temperature is 35° and below. The official opening date is Wednesday, November 13. Volunteers are needed to prepare and serve dinner for 25 people and provide breakfast food. Others are needed to spend the night. A Shelter Manager is present at all times.  

If you volunteered last year,  you have probably gotten information about the Shelter operation. If you would like more information, contact Judy Powell at jpowell2001@comcast.net.


Our AV team is looking to train up new volunteers to help with the audio/visual needs during our Sanctuary services on Sunday mornings. Once trained, you would help serve on a rotating schedule.


Our front office staff and volunteer team is looking for someone to join its ranks on Tuesday afternoons from 1-5pm and/or Thursdays from 9am-1pm. We need someone to help  welcome guests to FBCD, answer phones, and assist with light administrative tasks.
