The First Baptist Church of Cedaredge, CO is seeking a full time pastor.

First Baptist Church of Cedaredge, CO is located in rural western Colorado in Delta county. The population of Cedaredge is approximately 2200 with about 30,000 in the county. The area enjoys ready access to extraordinary outdoor recreation opportunities with four full seasons including some, but not a great deal, of snow.

We are an independent Baptist church with an average attendance of 70 on Sunday mornings. At present we are an aging congregation with an eye towards reaching a younger generation. Our main outreach programs are AWANA for children age three through 6th grade, which averages about 30 participants during the school year, and Vacation Bible School in June which reaches an average of 80 children. We also strive to be a church with a heart for missions, dedicating a substantial portion of the church budget to missions, both at home and abroad.

A summary of our beliefs can be found on our website and we are happy to provide the full constitution upon request.

We are seeking a pastor who:

- Knows God deeply and is committed to teaching the inspired and inerrant Word of God clearly and fully.

- Loves God passionately and strives to allow God’s love to permeate all aspects of his life.

- Loves others selflessly, showing the heart of a shepherd and concern for all members of the flock.

If you feel that the Lord has led you to this type of ministry, we would love to talk to you. Please contact:

Vacation Bible School 2019

The First Baptist Church of Cedaredge would like to invite the children of the Cedaredge area to our Vacation Bible School to be held June 3 - 7 (8:45 a.m. to 12 noon). This program is free of charge and is for children ages 4 through entering the 6th grade. The theme is SonSurf Beach Days and the theme verse is “Jesus answered, ‘I am the way and the truth and the life. No one comes to the Father except through me.’ “ (John 14:6)

At SonSurf Beach Days children will have daily encounters with Jesus through stories about Jesus’ actions. Children will have fun in the Son as they enjoy a great time singing songs, watching skits, creating crafts, playing games and enjoying delicious snacks. But most importantly, they’ll learn about how much God loves them and that He gave us His Word to show us the best way to live. These five days of discovery not only give children the knowledge of God’s Word, but also the opportunity to respond to His truth by living out their Christian faith.

SonSurf Beach Days VBS will be an inspirational adventure for your children. Children may be registered at the church on the opening day, or by visiting the Church office (856-3830) for a registration form.
