Let’s get moving!  Recreation is a great way to enjoy fellowship with your neighbors.  We realize that we are blessed with wonderful facilities at First Baptist Church and want to share them with our neighbors and friends. Whether you enjoy a fun game of pickleball or prefer to take in a springtime ballgame at City Stadium, we facilitate it all.  So we hope you will check out the fun and join us!

FBC Night at the Diamond

Two games a year, our FBC family hits the stands of City Stadium to root on our Richmond Flying Squirrels.  We haven’t identified dates for spring of 2023 quite yet, so check back to this page for updates

Blood Drive

We host an American Red Cross blood drive every eight weeks.  To schedule a blood drive appointment please go to and type in the keyword: FBCRVA.

First Riders

We invite all motorcycle enthusiasts to join us as we revel in God’s creation while riding on a bike (or just in a car)!  Most rides are in the 150 mile range and take up to five hours.  Contact Carl Evans for more information.


Every Tuesday from 7-9 p.m. you are welcome to join players of all skill levels for a fun match.  Want to learn to play?  Jump on the court and we’ll teach as we go.  

Gentle Yoga Class

Fridays from 11 a.m. until noon, join teacher Sarah Humphries (E-RYT200) for a beginner level yoga class.  The first class is free and after that (because we promise you will want to return) it is $5 per class.    Sarah adapts each class for people of all abilities, using the floor, while standing, or sitting in a chair.  Please bring your own mat.


Come pick up a paddle and get hooked on this popular pastime.  We play every Tuesday between 4 and 6 p.m.  One game is typically 20 minutes.  We have paddles and balls for you to use, but you can also bring your own equipment.  Email Lee Byerly for more information (

Aging Strong

First Baptist partners with the YMCA to hold a weekly program designed to help adults maintain independent living and includes gentle exercise, social time, games, and lunch.  Join us every Thursday and Friday from 9:30 a.m. until 12:30 p.m. in suite 220.  The program is free.  Contact Faithea Foster at 804-729-4635 to register.
