First Baptist Church in Walnut Creek, California, is situated in an expensive part of our country. Housing costs are well above the median price countrywide, and luxury cars fill the highways. First Baptist’s beginning dates back to 1939. The Christian school and preschool that are part of the church’s ministries are thriving. Pastor Shawn and Michelle Hull have served this congregation for five years. Chris Hindal presented Regular Baptist International, of which he is director, on Sunday, Jan. 21, in both the Sunday School hour and the morning worship service.

Chris says, “Pastor Shawn is enthusiastically seeking to help the church relate to a millennial-thinking community. It is important that people not let their personal preferences override the mission of the church.” May God bless this congregation as it makes adjustments to reach the lost in its community.
