What Can I Expect When I Visit First Baptist?
Visiting any church for the first time can be daunting. Here’s some information that can might your experience a little easier.
As you arrive: Pull right on in to our parking area. Feel free to park in any available parking spot. Nothing is reserved, although we do have handicap spots right next to the main door. You may enter the building from any door but the main entrance faces the large parking lot.
As you enter: Our greeters are there to welcome you with a smile and a church bulletin. They can direct you to the children’s area, Sunday School classes, or to the sanctuary.
Sunday Schedule: We have Sunday School at 9:00 am and the Worship service at 10:15 am. Children up to 4th grade are released during the worship service offering time to attend an age-specific teaching time.
For your littlest ones: During every service, we provide nursery care for infants and children up to 3 years old. It is a safe place for your child to play, eat, or sleep during the service. All of our workers are trained and background screened. They will listen to any instructions concerning your child and will lovingly care for your child.
What to wear: We really don’t have a dress code, so come dressed in whatever makes you comfortable. Most of our members dress casually. Please don’t worry about this decision. You are welcome here, no matter what!
Our worship service: Singing is one of the ways we worship God. Most Sundays are a blend of contemporary worship songs and the hymns from generations past. We believe the Bible is God’s Word to us and so we take time during our service to read passages from both the Old and New Testaments. During the service, we take up an offering to support the ministry and outreach of the congregation. Don’t feel obligated to give. It is something for those who call First Baptist home. Finally, and most importantly, you will hear a message from God’s Word.
What you’ll have to do: Absolutely nothing! You are welcome to participate in any part of our services but don’t feel obligated. We would love to know that you were with us, so we’d appreciate if you filled out a guest card from the pew in front of you. It allows us to send you some more information if you would like it. We won’t single you out or ask you to stand. We are just glad you are here.
