Where Can I Serve?

Jesus told us, his disciples, to make disciples of all nations. One of the most important values of this church is our mission to the world. It begins in our own community, and spreads overseas to every nation. Church members are involved in a variety of ministries from things as simple as decorating the church, to preparing the church bulletins.  

Mission Outreach

First Baptist Church of Hanover is thrilled to be part of the spread of God’s kingdom around the world. We are active in sending missionaries and supporting these missionaries with our money and with our prayers. The three missionaries from First Baptist Church are located in three countries—Papua New Guinea, Belize, and Canada.  We also have two missionaries serving in the United States.   We encourage all of our people to respond to God’s call for laborers, whether it means that they move to a foreign country or live and minister in our own community. We also like to take small groups on short term missionary trips to various countries.  

Music & Drama

God-honoring worship is something we strive for. Church members are offered the opportunity to get involved in our music and drama ministry. Do you play an instrument?  Do you like to sing?  Come join us and share you talents.  We’d love to have you.


The usher team at our church fills an important role. They are involved in directing attendees to their seats, ensuring the safety of the building during services, guiding traffic, helping visitors, answering questions, providing direction, unlocking doors, locking doors, and generally ensuring that the service can proceed problem-free. The usher team is a servant-hearted group of men and women whose ministry is integral to church life.  

Media & Technology

Using media to spread the gospel is a privilege of this church. In an age of widespread technology, we have a stewardship to use these tools as best as possible for kingdom purposes.  We are working toward having our weekly sermons available in video and audio formats. We also maintain an active Facebook  feed for additional church communication.   Go to Facebook and search “First Baptist Church Hanover” to find our feed.

Prayer Warriors

Prayer cannot be overestimated. Prayer moves the hand of God. Our Church is a body of believers dependent upon prayer, and committed to God’s sovereignty. Each Sunday, during the morning service, a team of volunteers is praying for the ministry of the Word. Throughout the week, volunteers from our Prayer Warriors team pray for their pastor, a list of church members, any special requests, and missionary prayer needs. Each Wednesday at 11:00 am, the church comes together for a special time of prayer and Bible study.
