First Baptist Church has a desire to see people grow both spiritually as well as physically. So over 30 years ago, the church invested in the physical health of its members and of the surrounding community by building a facility that could be utilized for the purpose of strengthening the individual. Ground was broken at the corner of N. 2nd and Orange in September of 1979 under the leadership of pastor James Flamming, and the Family Life Center opened in August of 1981.

 

The Family Life Center is designed to provide activities for all ages. From skating and bowling to basketball and racquetball, from the walking track to the fitness center, all of these areas combine to provide a safe and wholesome place for people of all ages to get fit and enjoy doing it. Our recent renovations (August 2011 – June 2012) have significantly updated the building. We are now able to accommodate our patrons in a modernized environment. The FLC also features Abilene’s newest bowling alley!

 

The FLC sponsors team sports ranging from kids basketball and flag football to adult basketball and softball. Opportunities abound for you to find your level of participation.
