Serving & Getting Involved
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.
Some of the areas and activities in which we are involved:
Providing Shut-In Meals
Both short and long day-trips
Contact Bro. Gene for more information on any of these ministries.

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 and 10:30 hours as well as a relaxed in-home Bible Study at Bro. Jeff and Michelle’s house on Monday nights from 7-8:30. 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.
Jesus has always welcomed children and so do we. We believe that reaching kids with an understanding of the Gospel and instilling a Biblical worldview before their teenage years is an essential task. Through Bible stories, movement through music, activities, and small group discussion, children get to know Jesus and what it means to follow Him. Through our weekly activities of Sunday School, HD Kids, and KidZone, children ages preschool through 5th grade will hear, know and apply the Truth of God’s Word.
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.
MOTHER'S DAY OUT
The purpose of First Baptist Church Crosby Mothers’ Day Out is to extend the mission and ministry of our church by providing a biblical-based education program to young children through a carefully chosen curriculum and staff whose basic Christian experiences, beliefs and practices are consistent with God’s word concerning the education of His children and the educational philosophy of our ministry.
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. We have three regular times of worship and Bible Study: Our 9:00 Worship service on Sunday Morning has live translation into Spanish through listening devices, at 10:30am, we have a Hispanic Sunday School class, and on Sunday evenings at 6:00pm, we have a Hispanic Bible Study that meets together to study the Word. There are also opportunities for fellowship, outreach and missions throughout the year
The prayer of FBC Women’s Ministry is to meet ladies right where they are. We hope to come along side women by encouraging, supporting, praying and equipping them in their journey with the Lord. As we establish friendships with one another, our hope is that each individual woman will find their identity in Christ, above all else. Our Women’s Ministry team works diligently to host weekly Bible studies, fellowships, retreats in the Fall and Spring, and even more events designed specifically for ladies throughout the year.
The Upward League at FBC Crosby is designed for boys and girls ages Kindergarten through 6th grade. Through our Basketball and Cheerleading leagues, Upward participants are developed into total athletes mentally, physically, socially, and spiritually. Registration for the 2019-2020 Upward season begins September 1st.
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.
