The First Baptist Church in Swansea is a faith family with a rich heritage. It was founded by those in the 17th century who sought religious toleration. They proclaimed God's grace when they were able to settle in this New England wilderness. Our traditions and customs continue to emphasize religious freedom coupled with community responsibility. We are a caring congregation that recognizes the challenges of living in the 21st century. We together strive to make our venerable Baptist faith relevant and appropriate for families today. We invite all those who seek to find the support and encouragement of a spiritual home to visit us and be included in our fellowship. Pilgrims on their seeking journey are encouraged to experience both the intimacy and openness of our congregation.
We are sad to say that family and professional obligations have called our pastor, Rev. Leah Goodwin, away from us far sooner than we had ever imagined. Her final Sunday with us will occur on May 11 (Mother's Day). Please join us for worship and a luncheon in Leah's honor to follow the service.
A statement from Rev. Goodwin about her departure can be found on her bio page on this website.
