Celebrating our 70th anniversary, 1954 to 2024

Update: This page has been updated to include links to our anniversary services, but it will also soon be re-named to more broadly refer to the history of our congregation. We will also add a media section with scans of photographs, interesting historical documents, and more. We hope to prepare that update in April or May of 2024.

Over the course of March 8th-10th, 2024, we celebrated 70 years of God’s blessings at First Baptist Church of Clairemont! Our theme is “70 Years of Nurturing Relationships Between God and People,” and we are grateful that many of you came to be a part of that over the course of the weekend.

If you would like to watch our Friday night service, incorporating current mission churches and a former mission church, as well as a sermon from pastor Alan Thompson, you can do so at this link: https://FBCClairemont.sermon.net/embed/main/22239189

If you would like to watch our Sunday morning service with guest preacher Pete Ramirez, you can do so at this link: https://FBCClairemont.sermon.net/embed/main/22240403

As a part of our celebrating our anniversary, the church presented a gift to herself in the form of an updated entryway on the Clairemont Mesa Blvd side (the north side) of the building, including modern decals that celebrate the history of our church. A picture will be included in the upcoming media section of our church history.
