Welcome to First Baptist Church of Kennett Square, PA

We are a vibrant community with a rich history of ministry and service in Kennett Square. Years ago the decision was made that our facility would be used well every day of the week. It was an issue of stewardship, getting the most out of this special place God has blessed us with.

Each Sunday as our community gathers for worship we are eager to see how God is working and moving within our midst.  I invite you to join us and experience what it is like to be part of a community that cares for you and wants to see you grow.
