Help & Care

Pastoral CarePastoralCare

The pastors and deacons of First Baptist Cornelia work closely with our Shepherd’s ministry to provide pastoral care to those who call our church home. If you are in the hospital, struggling with a specific illness or have experienced a loss, First Baptist Cornelia will be there for you. Personal visits, phone calls, and cards of encouragement from throughout the congregation are just a few ways that you will feel the presence of Christ and the power of God’s beloved community during tough times. To let us know you need help, please call 706.778.4412 or email Pastor Bob at any of our pastors or lay leaders.

If you know of someone else who needs the church, please call and tell us. We would rather get many calls about the same situation than to learn later that someone was in need and we couldn’t respond because we didn’t know.

Our pastors are also available by appointment when you need someone to listen and pray with you. We don’t do long-term therapy but we will help you find someone who does.

Prayer Needs

First Baptist Cornelia is a praying, Spirit-led family of followers of Jesus. We consider it a deep honor to pray for those who are hurting. We have a strong network of digital prayer warriors who take these needs to the feet of Jesus.

Physical Needs

The Benevolence Ministry at First Baptist Church provides assistance to area residents who need help with rent, utilities, medical care, transportation, food or other needs. To receive assistance, individuals must be from Habersham County, have a social security number, and have not received any assistance in the past year.

If you meet these requirements please call 706.778.4412 at 8:00 am on Monday mornings to reserve an appointment that week. Benevolence appointments are on Tuesday afternoons and Thursday mornings. Individuals must be present to receive assistance.

First Baptist staff and ministers are unable to assist you outside of these designed parameters.

Spiritual Needs

The path to a purposeful and meaningful life begins with a relationship with Jesus. Until we give our lives to Jesus and receive God’s free grace and love, we will never find peace. For meaningful illustration for how to receive Jesus as your Savior and find this peace, please visit
