First Baptist Legacy Adult Ministry

There are over 1000 Legacy Adults here at First Leesburg.

The Legacy Ministry at FBC is an active one where Adults from age 55 and up are involved each week in ministry and service throughout the church.

There are a variety of programs and ministry opportunities at First Baptist. All designed with the purpose of meeting the various needs for today’s Legacy adults, as well as reaching them for Christ.

At First Leesburg we see ourselves as active and motivated to make a difference for God in our church, community and throughout the world.

Opportunities to get Involved

Joy Choir
Music is very important here at First Baptist Leesburg and our Joy Choir has a regular schedule of performances and singing opportunities from fall to spring each year. They meet every Tuesday at 2:15 pm at various locations under the direction of Stephen Wolgamott.

Ministry Opportunities
A variety of ministry opportunities are available here at First Baptist. Our seniors lead the way when it comes to volunteering for programs, events, counseling, and more. They truly are the “heartbeat” of the ministry.

Bible Study Classes
Each Sunday over 400 Legacy adults attend the various Bible Fellowship classes here at First Baptist.

There are plenty of mission opportunities in our state, the US, and internationally. First Baptist has taken trips to North Georgia, Western Asia, Guatemala, Uganda, and Cuba.
