Adult Ministries at JFBC

The adult ministries at Jasper’s First Baptist center on a balanced program of involvement, fellowship and service. Sunday Bible study classes are the heart of the adult program. We have classes for every age group. Through small group Bible study, you will develop a caring fellowship and build relationships that will minister to you while you grow in God’s Word.
Stop by our Welcome Center in the main lobby and someone will be happy to assist you in finding a group.
