Welcome to First Baptist Church of Herrin
First Baptist Church is a Bible-based, Southern Baptist church that has been a part of the community for over 150 years. It is our goal to glorify Christ in all we do and to fulfill his mission for us in both word and deed. We are passionate about learning God's Word and being a part of a faith family.
We exist to glorify God by experiencing unity within the body, discipling believers, and sharing the gospel.
We're going to have an eclipse watch party beginning at 11AM and ending when the eclipse is complete. Partial phase begins at 11:52 AM for Herrin and ends 2 hours and 23 minutes later, at 2:15 pm. Total eclipse begins at 1:20 PM and only lasts a few minutes. Please be sure to bring your own glasses especially made for the eclipse if you plan to view the eclipse. If you have extra pairs of glasses, please bring those for others.
We will provide hamburgers, hotdogs, chips, and... drinks at the church pavilion. Please bring any other kinds of food items you may like. We will also have the Gaga Ball pit set up for kids, a basketball goal set up, a Volleyball net set up, and of course the soccer field will be available as well. If people would like to bring other kinds of games, baseball, frisbee, and etc., the property will be available for people to use. Come join us.
