A Church in the desert practicing the Fundamentals of the Faith.

FBC Athletics



Mission Statement

People matter to God and in the Athletics Ministry sports is our vehicle to connect with people. We are also aware that Athletics offers a unique opportunity to reach a watching world for Christ. Our goal is to include everyone, regardless of their athletic abilities. In this way, we can put into practice Christ's model of accepting people where they are.

League Sports provides FBC29 Christian athletes with an opportunity to witness to a watching world. Each team is committed to spreading the love of Christ treating their games as a “mini-mission”.



Softball League

The Winter League will be starting on Oct. 9th 2014. If you would like to join please see Pastor Scott or e-mail him.

SoftballFBC Athletics Softball League Teams provide participants a place to fellowship with one another in a social and athletic environment and to impact the secular community with the gospel message of Jesus Christ through our actions and interactions on and off the field.

The softball league is broken up into two seasons. The summer season starts in July and runs through mid-September. The winter season starts in October and runs through January.

Game Schedules: Games are played weeknights (Summer - Tuesday & Thursday) (Winter – Tuesday) Teams are signed up to play on a set day of the week and play on that same day throughout the season (with possible exceptions of make-up games). Game times are 6:30 p.m. and 7:30 p.m. and 8:30 p.m. as scheduled each season. For schedule of games click here.

Cost: The church is currently sponsoring our team fees ($425.00). A team shirt generally will cost 13.00 per person.

How to Join a Team: Softball signups are currently being held after morning service. (Once our roster is full, anyone wishing to play will be put on a sub list and will be free to sign-up for Summer Season.) Women be on the look out for a Spring Softball league.

Needs and Opportunities: The success of this ministry rests upon the availability of people who are willing to manage and lead teams. In order to keep teams going and/or to form new teams, we need coaches to coordinate the teams. Please email me at anytime if you are interested.

Our Vision: In this dry desert land, it is the vision of First Baptist Church of 29 Palms to provide hydration for the soul. In order to accomplish this we will Invite, Invest, Involve and Impact our community for Jesus Christ.
