Thank you from the Shirley’s
Dear Church Family,
Thank you so much for the meals, cards, calls and texts during Terri’s knee replacements. The extra care and attention helped in her recovery and healing. 
We are blessed to be a part of a great church family.
With much love and thankfulness,  Terri, Jason, & Kendall Shirley 




  • Technical Notes on the Worship Livestream: 
  • Recordings of the worship service are usually available on our YouTube Channel immediately after the service ends. 
  • In the event of livestream disruptions
  • On a brighter note: did you know that there are lots of ways to watch our church services and other videos on your TV?  If you have internet access and either a smart TV or other device connected to your TV (like Roku, Amazon Fire, TIVO, PC, etc.), you can use a built-in YouTube player to access our YouTube Channel – just look for First Baptist Church Bloomington.  Chatting during services will still require a separate computing or mobile device.   Call or email the church if you’d like technical support in getting this set up.
