First Baptist Church, Norman has a long history of engagement with missions, both national and international. Over the last several decades, more than 50 career or long-term mission volunteers have served from its ranks. In addition, all the members of the current ministry staff have worked in international or state-side missions, several for extended periods. Several hundred of its members have served in short-term mission activities as well, many in other countries. It’s not surprising then that FBC continues to be engaged in mission endeavors, both through participation by its members, and through on-going mission activities, offerings and prayer.
Friendship International offers English classes and fellowship to internationals in the Norman community. A wide range of instruction from beginner to graduate level is offered. Childcare and van service are provided free for participants in Friendship International. The group meets on Thursday mornings from 9:15 - 11:00 a.m. during the fall and spring semesters when the University of Oklahoma is in session.
