The Classics Ministry at First Baptist Bryan exists to provide members age 55 and above with opportunities for worship, bible study, service and fellowship.
First Baptist Bryan has chosen the name "Classics" when referring to our older generations for a very important reason. When an automobile is 50 years old and has been restored, it is called a classic. It is more valuable than when it was first built. Followers of Jesus who are 55 years of age and have been restored by "the blood of the Lamb" are classics in the same respect. Our value is far above anything we can think or even imagine because Jesus lives within each of us.
In Proverbs 16:31, Solomon writes, "Gray hair is a crown of splendor; it is attained in the way of righteousness." Leviticus 19:32 says, "Stand up in the presence of the aged, show respect for the elderly and revere your God. I am the Lord."
We consider age to be a gift from our Creator. As a church, we acknowledge that many privileges and conveniences we enjoy today were made possible because of the leadership, service and sacrificial giving of those who are now Classics. First Baptist Bryan believes that our older generations have much to give and much to receive in helping our church meet the challenges facing followers of Jesus today.
