Welcome to First Baptist Church of Rapid City! 


We worship together Sunday mornings at 9am.

Following service, we have Feasting on the Word from 10:15 to 11am, September through May.


FBC is a part of the ABC Dakotas Region of American Baptist Churches in North and South Dakota and also part of the larger

American Baptist Church-USA.  We've been around since the very beginning of Rapid City, first meeting above a saloon on Main Street!

  Since that time we have continued to evolve and change as we grow in our faith.


Feel free to dress as you are comfortable.  We sing contemporary songs and hymns, use video clips, 

liturgical readings,dramatic presentations, and moments of silence to connect with our God. 

After worship, we'd love for you to stay for our "Feasting on the Word" groups from 10:15am-11:00am.  

Our Feasting groups take some of the big ideas from worship and unpack them in a small group setting.


Our midweek gathering includes W.O.W. on Wednesdays.  W.O.W. stands for Worship On Wednesday.  

The W.O.W. schedule begins in September and runs through May. We serve an evening meal at 5:30 p.m. free of charge.

Discipleship opportunities for 4-year olds through Senior Citizens happen from 6:00 p.m.-7:30 p.m., 

with a staffed nursery for those who wish to take advantage of it for the really young ones. 

The choir practices from 6:00 p.m.-6:40 p.m., the Praise Team from 6:40pm-7:30pm

and we’re always looking for new people who like to sing.
