The Big Picture

The Church

The First Baptist Church of Hoosick Falls is a small-town church in a quaint, rural community that ministers to a multigenerational congregation that is currently part of the American Baptist Church Association. Our Sunday average attendance is 45-50. We gather in worship each Sunday from 10a.m.-11a.m. with Sunday School classes available for children, ages 4-11, during the service. There is a solid group of volunteer Sunday School teachers who work in pairs each Sunday throughout the year to provide biblically based lessons for the children. We also have a core group of youth that assist in the Sunday School programming in various ways, such as our annual fall festival and vacation bible school. In the recent past, we have had an active youth group that has met regularly throughout the year and attended various youth retreats.
