Pastoral Care


Our Pastoral Care Ministry Staff provides support and encouragement to those who are facing challenging circumstances. This ministry represents the pastor, staff, and membership of First Baptist Church and is a visible reminder of God’s presence during times of pain and sorrow. The major responsibilities are in the areas of Hospital and Bereavement Care.


We believe the church is created to reflect the glory of God to the world. We have good news for you, there is hope. There is hope in the person of Jesus Christ.

FBCLC is committed to carrying out the Great Commission through healing hurts and meeting needs. We are linked with the Good Samaritan Center & KARM of Lenoir City to assist in meeting immediate needs. If you are experiencing hardship & need assistance, call the church office 865-986-9066 or 865-988-2544.

Hospital Visitation

Our Pastoral Care ministers visit our members and their relatives when they are hospitalized to offer prayer and comfort during their hospital stay. If you are hospitalized or know of a member who is in the hospital or is scheduled to enter the hospital, please contact the Pastoral Care office at 865-986-9066.
