First Southern Baptist Church has been presenting the gospel of Christ in Junction City, KS since we were first planted in 1954. In addition to serving the community of Junction City, we are proud to be next door to Ft. Riley, home of the Big Red One, with many veterans in our congregation. We are also enriched by believers from Chapman, Dwight, Grandview Plaza, Lyona, Manhattan, Milford, Ogden, Wakefield, and White City.

The following is a list of the different ministries and classes we offer at our church. At the bottom of the page is information regarding the use of the building for weddings and funerals. For our confessions of faith, click on About Us.

On Wednesday nights during the school year, we offer the kids ministry known world-wide as AWANA (Approved Workmen Are Not Ashamed). It starts at 6:00 and wraps up shortly before 8:00, for kindergarten through high school. (Childcare is available for pre-K and under as long as the parents remain on the premises.)

Sunday School
Every Sunday morning from 9:30 to 10:15, we have Sunday school available for all ages, babies on up through adults. There are great Bible lessons and activities for your kids to take part in!

Homeschool Group
Our church supports a strong network of homeschoolers that meet once a week at our building. For more information about how to connect with our homeschool families, visit with Beki Hughes.


On Wednesday nights, we have a Bible study for teens through AWANA's Journey curriculum. It starts at 6:30 and finishes up at 7:45, meeting in one of the east wing classrooms upstairs.

A ministry of AWANA, Trek is a Bible study program that is taught specifically to middle schoolers. They meet at the same time as the rest of our AWANA kids, starting at 6:00 on Wednesday nights.

Other Ministries

Food Pantry
We have a small food pantry at FSBC. Feel free to contribute non-perishable food items. We also have a freezer to store frozen goods. This ministry helps to care for those struggling to make ends meet in our church and community.

Building Usage

We often get inquiries about using the building for other events, weddings and funerals among the most common. Requests will be determined on a case-by-case basis, taking into consideration factors such as other scheduled engagements and availability of staff. First priority is given to requests made by members of our church.

WEDDINGS will be conducted for our members only. You must be a member of our church, or, in special circumstances, you have been recommended by a member or another closely associated pastor, to use our building and/or one of our ordained ministers for a wedding. The building is available free of charge (an honorarium of $150 should still be given to the minister officiating, and $50 to the person running sound). We do ask that all requests be made at least 60 days prior to the event.

FUNERALS receive personal care, and we work closely with the funeral homes in town to ensure a loving service, both at the church and the graveside. It is encouraged that you visit with the funeral home about where you would like the funeral to be held. If you request FSBC, they will get in contact with us. If the funeral is held at the funeral home, our pastor is still able to officiate the service.
