God’s Angels

“Let all that you do be done in love.”

1 Corinthians 16:14 NRSV

First Baptist Church has for over forty years provided a safe Sunday School space for differently-abled persons.

The God’s Angels Sunday school class began decades ago when Opal Blackard’s son, Mitchell, needed a Sunday School class suited to his needs. This ecumenical class picks up its members from their homes and after Sunday School, has been known to deliver them to their families to different churches throughout Middlesboro. The class was rightly named God’s Angels and if you come in contact with these adults in our church, you know that they are not disabled, but love-abled.

Sundays, 9:45 AM

God’s Angels meets on Sunday mornings for a time of fellowship, prayer, and singing. The weekly favorite hymn is “Jesus Loves Me.” The leaders of God’s Angels plan occasional additional activities for the class.
