More than 100 people came out to First Call at Sydney Baptist Church Sunday morning for what was essentially the new ministry’s grand opening.
First Call, which caters to first responders and their families, kicked things off with a 9:30 a.m. service. Church leader Chaplain Dan Middlebrooks and guest speaker Pastor Rob Jackson of Dover Baptist Church started up the series called “A Warrior’s Walk,” which Middlebrooks said will continue through Easter.
“Christ was the greatest warrior that ever lived,” Middlebrooks said.
Service concluded with a special 10:45 a.m. brunch in the church’s fellowship hall.
First Call has services on Thursday evenings as well as Sunday mornings and evenings. It also hosts a “First Fellowship” breakfast at 8:30 a.m. on the first Sunday of each month. The church is located at 1510 Cre Road, Dover. Call 813-652-8178 or visit firstcallsbc.com for more information.
