We are so thankful you chose to worship with us today. We pray that your time with us will encourage you, challenge you, and empower you to acts of love and good works.

We want to connect with you—to help you find a place where you can find community, grow in your faith, and serve.

Church-Wide

Church Gathering

May 2nd, 4 p.m. in the Sanctuary

FBC Kenner and FBC Covington have voted to adopt the memorandum of understanding, setting into motion this new relationship. On May 2nd, Waylon Bailey, senior pastor of FBC Covington, and Reggie Ogea, interim pastor of FBC Kenner, will share a vision for the future, where our churches will partner together in helping people know and accept Jesus Christ, and through Him experience life-changing relationships. We hope you’ll join us for this important conversation.

New Sunday Morning Schedule

We have returned to one worship service, which begins at 11 a.m. with ConnectGroups beginning at 9:30 a.m. We are also bringing back childcare during both ConnectGroups and the worship service. We’re so excited to be back together!

Mom2Mom

Mom2Mom (M2M) Community is based on the premise of fellowship found in Galatians 6:2 which says, “that we should bear each other’s burdens.” We are a group of Moms who provide fun, support and encouragement for one another. We strive to encourage, equip, and build relationships with other moms to realize their potential as mothers, spouses, women, and leaders in relationship with Jesus and in partnership with the local church. We have monthly Mom Meetings, monthly playdates, and occasional Mom and family events, service projects, and fun surprises!

ALIVE, our student ministry, exists to make disciples of Jesus Christ among 7-12th graders. Our church’s mission is to make Christ-followers who are transformed by His truth and sent out in His name. Our ministry hopes to fulfill this mission by:

Making disciples of Christ through personal relationships in order to lead them into a relationship with Jesus, seeing them transformed into mature Christians through Bible study and worship, and helping them discover their God-given gifts for the purpose of being sent out.

The activities of our ministry are designed to intentionally see this mission realized. We have a lot of opportunities for students to connect to one another and to Christ:

  • Sunday morning Bible Study and worship
  • Large groups on Wednesday ALIVE gatherings.
  • Laser tag, Nerf wars, and other fun hangouts!
  • NOBA Disciple Now Weekend

Children's Ministry

We welcome your child to the Preschool Ministry of First Baptist Kenner. Our desire is to help you and your family have a happy Christian experience through the many opportunities available at First Baptist Church of Kenner. Please partner with us as we do our best to ensure a safe, nurturing, and comfortable learning environment for your child.

The Preschool Ministry seeks to provide children from birth through kindergarten with the foundations for building character, love, and a positive response to Jesus Christ and His church.

We know that; as parents, you need to be sure that your child is getting the best possible care during your time of Bible study and worship. We are committed to providing trained leaders, keeping a clean and safe environment, and maintaining a balanced curriculum designed to meet the needs of preschoolers.

Thank you for allowing us the privilege of teaching your child about Jesus and His love. We will do our best to let each little one know they are loved and that they are a unique gift of God. We pray that each child grows up with this testimony – “From infancy you have known the Scriptures, which are able to make you wise for salvation through faith in Christ.” (2 Timothy 3:15)

Letter Content

Roadmap & Timeline

Formation of Exploratory Committee
  • December 6, 2020

The Exploratory Committee was formed in our December business meeting to further investigate and put together additional details about a merger relationship with First Baptist Church of Covington.

First Meeting of Exploratory Committees from FBC Kenner & FBC Covington
  • January 12, 2021

The Exploratory Committees from both churches met for the first time on January 12. We were able to determine what major topics and details need to be looked at over the next few meetings, and began conversations about a few areas. 

Second Exploratory Committee Meeting w/ Deacon Meeting to Follow
  • January 19, 2020

The two Exploratory Committees met for the second time on Tuesday, January 19th at our Church. We continued working through the details and topics introduced at the first meeting. After the Committee meeting, Waylon Bailey (Pastor of FBC Covington) and the Personnel Committee Chairman at FBCC spent time with our deacons and further discussed some of the biggest questions and topics about this possible relationship.  

Drafting Stage
  • in Process Now

Now that many aspects of the potential adoption have been discussed by the Committees, we'll begin putting those details in written form. Some documents being drafted are more technical in design (which would be used for a more legal/corporate purpose), but more "layman's terms" documents are also being put together to clearly and simply explain what this would look like.    

Formation of Pastor Search Committee
  • in Process Now

Our Committee on Committees has begun the process to form a Pastor Search Committee. The committee has invited feedback about any members you believe may be a good fit for the Pastor Search Comm. and is collecting those surveys now. Comm. on Comms. will meet on January 27th to review those surveys and begin prayerfully putting together candidates for their recommendation.

Next Exploratory Committee Meeting
  • TBA

After some of these initial "detail" documents are drafted, the Exploratory Committees will meet again. We are hoping to have completed the initial drafting stage after 2-3 weeks.
