Our Story


First Baptist Church of Winter Garden has a rich heritage and legacy, celebrating 130 years in Downtown Winter Garden. In 1958, they started a Christian school, Foundation Academy at the church, which has grown to 750 students on two campuses; First Baptist Winter Garden Downtown campus for PK-6th grades and 60 acres on Tilden Road for 7th-12th grades. In 2013, Foundation Worship began as a second location for First Baptist Church Winter Garden, to meet the growing community of Horizon West in South Winter Garden.

Foundation Worship is a contemporary service that meets every Sunday at 9:45am in the gym of Foundation Academy, offering great worship by our Worship Pastor, Jarian Felton, worship team and band. We have a casual setting, where adults and teens meet around tables with friends to worship, hear God’s word taught by Sr. Pastor, Tim Grosshans and discussion is facilitated by a Table Host to build lasting relationships and dig deeper in God’s word. We have a great team that leads our Preschool and Kids Club ministries for “little ones” to elementary age.
