The Encore Ministry of First Baptist Matthews exists to make disciples who make disciples who Reach UP to God, IN to the Church and OUT to the world.

We do this through numerous fellowship, bible study and outreach opportunities. Seniors from First Baptist Matthews and all surrounding communities are invited to participate in Encore55+ events. The best way to get connected is through an age appropriate Sunday School Groups. If you are new to First Baptist, we invite you to stop by the Welcome desk in the lobby on Sunday morning and Reach IN to the Church.
