Serving & Getting Involved
The Bible is living and active and able to speak into our souls (Hebrews 4:12). It can guide us through every circumstance we find ourselves in, provides answers to dealing with every sin that ensnares us, and leads us further into conforming to the image of Jesus Christ. Biblical Counseling Services are available by appointment. Our trained biblical counselors will help guide you as you seek healing through God’s Word.
God’s Word calls us to cast all of our anxieties on Him (I Peter 5:7).This truth has never been more crucial than right now during these times of great uncertainty. Just as with every other area of ministry here at FBC Crosby, our free Biblical Counseling services are now available electronically.
If you would like to schedule an appointment, please complete the Counseling Request Form below. Once received, we will set up an electronic or (in limited cases during COVID-19) in-person counseling session. You may also reach out to us at firstname.lastname@example.org or call the church office at 281-328-2464 and ask for Lee Ann Lee.
cOLLEGE & YOUNG ADULT
The years after high school are some of the most pivotal years in a person’s life. People make huge decisions about their future careers, spouses, and life direction. The College and Young Adult Ministry at FBCC exists to help college-aged people to know and follow Jesus. We offer weekly Bible Study Fellowship Groups on Sunday Morning during both the 9:00 AM and 10:30 AM hours as well as a relaxed in-home Bible Study at Bro. Jeff and Michelle’s house on Monday nights from 7:00 PM - 8:30 PM. (Food, Fun, Friends and Studying God’s word with intention and purpose). This Ministry is specifically designed for college students and young adults (18 – 24). Other opportunities include serving on Sunday mornings, volunteering in the community, global missions, retreats, and the National Collegiate Week.
Based on Psalm 78:4, “…we will tell the next generation the praiseworthy deeds of the LORD, his power, and the wonders he has done.” Our mission is to come alongside parents to raise a future generation of believers so that when they leave children’s ministry they understand what it means to follow Him, and will go on to love and serve God with their whole being. Our prayer is to share the love of Jesus with every child who walks in our doors so they can grow to have a personal relationship with our Savior, Jesus Christ. First Kids of FBC Crosby can learn and grow in their knowledge of Jesus through Bible stories, worship/praise, small/large group discussion, and various events.
Our Sunday morning Small Groups meet by individual age/grade levels from bed Babies-5th grade.
This is our children’s drama and music program. The age requirement for our drama and music ministry is Kindergarten-5th grade.
Elementary boys, girls, and preschoolers are each divided for a time of discipleship, recreation, and missions emphasis Sunday nights at 6pm.
Wednesday nights with First Kids are a blast! Preschoolers through 3rd grade will participate in a time of worship, games and recreation, all the while learning the Biblical Truths found in God’s Word.

The Hispanic ministry of FBC is to glorify God by living, loving, giving, serving, and going to make disciples among the nations and specifically the growing Hispanic community in Crosby, Texas.

The purpose of our Men’s Ministry is to equip and support the men of First Baptist Crosby to be Godly leaders in their homes, church, work, and community as they grow deeper in their relationship with Jesus.
Every believer is called to share the Good News of Jesus Christ. Whether here in Crosby or across the globe, we strive to live every day on mission. FBC Crosby participates in a wide range of short term domestic and international missions. We as a church have spent more than a century preparing, funding, praying for, and sending missionaries into the field.
parent'S DAY OUT
Parent's Day Out is a program committed to helping children learn about the world God created, through his Word. This includes learning their letters, numbers, colors, shapes and much more, of course. Most importantly, however, children will learn about the God who created it all!
As a staff, we will teach our students the Word of God and the character of God as we come alongside their families in making disciples. It is our desire to provide care and ministry to both parents and children through this program. Deuteronomy 6:4-9 is what we strive to implement as a staff, and encourage you as parents to implement as well:
4"Hear, O Israel: The Lord our God, the Lord is one. 5You shall love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your might. 6And these words that I command you today shall be on your heart. 7You shall teach them diligently to your children, and shall talk of them when you sit in your house, and when you walk by the way, and when you lie down, and when you rise. 8You shall bind them as a sign on your hand, and they shall be as frontlets between your eyes. 9You shall write them on the doorposts of your house and on your gates.
1 child- $175
2 children- $250
3 children- $300

The purpose of the LAFF (Life After Fifty Fun) Ministry of First Baptist Church Crosby is to meet the spiritual, emotional, and physical needs of our Adults 50 years and older. We will be intentional partners in ministry with the entire church. We will be looking at areas where God is working and will be working under His guidance to establish both long and short term ministries. We have a LAFF Planning Team. This team surveys the needs and provides ministry ideas for our Adults 50 years and older. We cooperate with the San Jacinto Baptist Association Senior Adult Council to enable us to interact with other Senior Adult groups in our association.

The Student Ministry of First Baptist Church Crosby exists to lead its students into a journey of faith, prepare them for lifelong discipleship, and inspire them to carry the love of Christ into their community and the world. Midweek is a large group meeting that takes place on Wednesday for High School and Middle School students. The purpose of Midweek is to bring students together to grow together in their faith. This time will consist of worship, biblical teaching and the gospel presentation. Students will be challenged in their faith and provide opportunity to bring their friends who are lost to faith in Christ.
The Upward League at FBC Crosby is designed for boys and girls ages Kindergarten through 6th grade.

The prayer of FBC Women’s Ministry is to meet ladies right where they are. We hope to come alongside women by encouraging, supporting, praying, and equipping them in their journey with the Lord.
