WELCOME TO ALTOONA FIRST GBC

COVID-19 Virus Update
Because of the COVID-19 Virus we will not be holding services starting today Monday, March 16 until further notice. Please check back with https://www.fgbca.org and Facebook so you will know when we feel it is safe to start holding services again. Sorry for any inconvenience this may cause.

Hello, I am Pastor John Townsend and this is my wife Yvonne. We welcome you to the Altoona First GBC website.

Please check us out and make note of the times of service and activities that we’re planning, because; you are invited to come and join us at any time.

Also, I would love to hear from you so please feel free to contact me with your comments, needs, or prayer requests.

Our ministry goal here at Altoona First GBC is to raise up champions for Christ. Our method to accomplish this is to get “Back to the Basics” in teaching our adults and especially our young people.

My plan to accomplish this is through discipleship; so if you’re a child of God who wishes to grow in Christ and wants a place to home your spiritual gifts and talents this is the place for you. I invite you to join us as our team seeks to minister to Altoona and the surrounding area; in and through the love of the Lord Jesus Christ.

There are multiple ways to keep updated will all the announcements and activites taking place at Altoona First GBC.  Please follow us on all our social media pages Altoona First GBC official Facebook Page, My Facebook page that I run for the church , and on the Altoona First GBC Official Twitter Page.  Another Facebook page that I’m involved with is Camp Albryoca. I please ask you to join their Facebook page Camp Albryoca on Facebook as well.
