Welcome to our website! We’re glad you’re here. Please take a look around and listen to the songs and messages from Pastor Benjamin. Let us know if you have any questions. This week’s message will be about gaining strength through the Lord’s Joy.
First Baptist Church of Seville is comprised of members who work together as volunteers in 4 teams. The teams are; the Music Team, the Christian Education Team, the Building Trustees Team, and the Diaconate Leadership Team. We are grateful for each and every person who helps work together to meet the needs of our community, share the love of Jesus, and keep a church building clean and in operation for God’s purposes. We will be having a quarterly church potluck dinner, fellowship, and business meeting on July 23rd after church. All are welcome.
Caleb Payne was baptized at Camp Koinonia on Friday July 7th. You are invited to celebrate with him today. There will be cake and snacks immediately after church in the fellowship hall today. Baptism is a special proclamation for a believer to declare their choice to follow Christ Jesus in the death, burial, and resurrection of Jesus.
This Saturday July 15th beginning at 7am is the BUILD-A-BARN event at Dave & Amy Banfields. This community outreach project will help the Banfields bring their horses home. We are asking everyone to bring tools for this labor of love. Please email firstname.lastname@example.org for more information.
We are now recruiting teachers for our Fall Christian Education Team!

Christian condolences to the family of Frank Potts, who went Home to be with Our Lord this week.
Frank D. Potts, 96, passed away Thursday, July 6, 2017. Frank was born in Wadsworth on March 10, 1921 and lived in Seville since 1974.
He honorably served in the U.S. Army as an artillery mechanic in Europe and landed in Normady 10 days after D Day. He was a member of the 204th Battery’s C and D.
He loved the Lord and was a member of Seville Baptist Church for over 40 years serving in many capacities. He enjoyed the challenges of his job as a tool, die and mold maker. He always said, “give me the difficult job nobody else wants and I’ll do it”. He enjoyed photography and sold his father’s gun for a camera. He never liked shooting but shot many reels of film capturing movies of his baby girl in the early 1950’s (Dianne Elaine Potts DOB 9-3-51). He met Katie Westelle Coldwell from Shelbyville, Tennessee and married in December 1947.
He was preceded in death by Katie in 1974; second wife, Anne Fetzer; sister Frances Elaine Bailey and Dorothy Murray.
He is survived by a daughter, Dianne (Randolph “Randy”) Greaves of Lafayette, Louisiana; granddaughters, Dr. Angela Duke and husband, Dr. Will Duke of Tacoma, Washington and their children, Bryce and Katie; Rebekah (Rick) Wesenberg of Summerville, South Carolina and their children, Caleb, Hunter and Hayden. Special thanks to Daddy’s faithful friend, Cecil Wolf, who has been like family many years.
Family will welcome friends Monday, July 10, 2017 at the First Baptist Church in Seville from 9 A.M., with funeral service to follow at 10 A.M. Burial at Hillcrest Cemetery. Meal will be provided by the church.
