In January 2020, Pastor Blake Boylston will begin serving First Baptist Church as Senior Pastor. He is currently an Assistant Pastor at Capitol Hill Baptist Church in Washington D.C. Please be in prayer for Pastor Blake, his wife Julie and their children as they prepare for this big transition.

A celebration honoring Bro. Dale and Toni Thompson is scheduled for Sunday evening, November 24, at First Baptist Church, Fort Smith. Pastor Dale Thompson’s last Sunday at First Baptist Church, Fort Smith, is November 24, 2019. He has honorably, warmly and faithfully served First Baptist Church, the River Valley and the Tri-State Area for more than 27 years. No doubt, he will be greatly missed.
