First Baptist Paducah
We are so excited to be able to offer D-now in 2021. Somethings will be the same as years past, some things will be modified, and somethings will be brand new. The weekend will still feature; Amazing worship sessions: High energy concerts; Life changing Bible study; Missions: Recreation: and a lot of fun. We will be adding a new off-site, late-night recreation option. That one will be a surprise! We will also have a stronger mission focus right here in our community. We will be changing our lodging and attendance policy to keep everyone as safe as possible as our nation recovers from COVID-19.

Our theme is Make it Matter! Everyone wants to change the world. But how do you define real impact? Do you define impact by the total number of followers or likes? Do you define impact by being invited to the right places with the right people? Or maybe you define impact by achievements, where your contribution to the world is measured in trophies or scores. If so, here’s a hard truth: trophies and likes can make an impact, but not truly matter.
Real impact happens when God works through us. And when we grasp this truth, the way we see our lives and the world around us changes. Make It Matter shows how much difference a life empowered by the Word can make; how Jesus is the power source for a life that matters; how God designed us to impact the world together; and how trusting in God’s plan is the key to real impact.

With Worship By Kings Arrows

Kings Arrows  is comprised of Zackary Hille, Francie Harp, Jacob McCallon, Ethan Banks, Olivia Looper and Weslan Banks. We have all grown up worshipping in church. KA was started to bring more biblical songs to the church and help point people to the throne through music. “We exist to worship Jesus Christ in an authentic and Biblical manner— inviting others to respond to the creator in a bold way.”
