LOCATIONThe Sterlington/Fairbanks area is one of the most rapidly growing areas in the state of Louisiana. With the growth of area companies,the beauty of the delta region, excellent school systems and a thriving community infrastructure, this area is attracting many new families. First West Fairbanks is very excited to be a part of this growing, thriving community. We will continue to utilize the original Fairbanks Baptist Church campus. The pastoral staff as well as other administrative staff will have office hours at the Fairbanks Church building, and Wednesday night AWANA programs, and many other activities will continue to take place there as well. Sunday morning worship services will take place at the Sterlington High School at 10:30 a.m. each week, starting January 22, 2012.
LAUNCH DATE AND LAUNCH TEAMThe launch date of the campus will be January 22, 2012. A launch team of called-out people who sense God calling them to this new outreach will be going to First West Fairbanks. Most members of this launch team will be asked to make a one-year commitment.
