Letter from the Interim Pastor
First Baptist Church of Levittown - Fairless Hills has a heart for those in need and express this concern in tangible ways. We feed the hungry and welcome the stranger in our midst.
Each Sunday morning the children bring coins to contribute to the Penny Project. Each penny represents one American child living under the poverty line. From this ongoing collection, donations have been made to the Bucks County Homeless Shelter, Family Services Association, and Racetrack Ministries for example.
First Baptist also carries on a Pack Out project whereby surplus foods from the Amish Market are boxed and provided to those in need. The women's group continues to knit watch caps for the Seafarers Ministries as well as prayer shaws given to those facing tring times in their lives. First Baptist Church of Levittown-Fairless Hills host three different Narcotics Anonymous meetings each week. At Thanksgiving we prepare and deliver dinner to a nearby recovery house.
We take the Bible seriously in the life of our church and in our individual lives, but we give one another space to seek God's truth for each life. Our church has an active prayer chain whose participants faithfuly lift up concerns for members and neighbors alike. Each week we visit the sick and the shut ins.
We are affiliated with the American Baptist Churches in the USA and with the Philadelphia Baptist Association. We believe that working together with like minded churches, we can more effectively carry out our mission than we could if we tried to do it all on our own.
First Baptist Church of Levittown-Fairless Hills is a small congregation with a big heart. If you are looking for a church like that , we might be a great fit for you. We encourage you to join us some Sunday at 10 a.m. in our beautiful sanctuary.
Yours in Christ,
Rev. David L. Cushman, Interm Pastor
Some Key Scriptures
In all these things we are more than conquerors through him who loved us. For I am sure that neither death, nor life, nor angels, nor principalities, nor things present, nor things to come, nor powers, nor height, nor depth, nor anything else in all creation, will be able to separate us from the love of God in Christ Jesus our Lord.
Come to me, all who labor and are heavy laden, and I will give you rest. Take my yoke upon you, and learn from me; for I am gentle and lowly in heart, and you will find rest for your souls. For my yoke is easy, and my burden is light
