First Baptist Church is an independent Baptist congregation.

We strive to be loving and obedient disciples of Jesus Christ and to make new disciples of Christ in the Woodville area and around the world.

Oh, give thanks to the LORD!
Call upon His name;
Make known His deeds among the peoples!
9Sing to Him, sing psalms to Him;
Talk of all His wondrous works!
10Glory in His holy name;
Let the hearts of those rejoice who seek the LORD!
11Seek the LORD and His strength;
Seek His face evermore! 1 Chronicles 16:8–11 (NKJV)

Why the Blackbirds?


We have some bird feeders in our back yard. We enjoy seeing the gold finches, blue birds, wrens, and a host of other small birds. We also have a hummingbird feeder, but so far we have seen only one lonely hummingbird! The birds are colorful and delightful to watch.

However, we also have other birds that frequent our feeders - the many blackbirds! They are very adept in consuming the bird seed meant for the other birds, and they frequently chase the other birds away. So far, we know of no way of being free of them. Any suggestions?!
