This one is simple! We at First Baptist church are from all walks of life. Our congregation does not fit neatly into any one label other than loved by Jesus. Most importantly, you will meet messy and broken people choosing to do life together to show each other the love of God.
What is Worship Like Here?
Our worship service consists primarily of three parts: music, prayer, and the Word. Our music is a blend of traditional hymns and contemporary praise songs led by members of our church family who love Jesus. We dedicate a portion of our service to allowing anyone who desires to share together praises and prayer concerns. The Word of God is the foundation of all that we do. We receive communion on the first Sundays of the month. Our worship service begins at 10:30 AM and is finished by 12 PM. If you have young children, please plan to arrive a few minutes early to settle them into the nursery. We encourage you to stay afterward to spend time with church friends and enjoy the delicious snacks provided each week!
What Should I Wear?
Whatever you find most comfortable! Jesus’ desire is that you come to know Him and make Him known. Quite frankly, He doesn’t care if you do that in a suit or dress, khakis and button down top, or jeans and a t-shirt. Neither do we.
What About My Kids?
We provide safe, free childcare for your children during the worship service. Nursery care is provided for infants-3 year olds. Plan to arrive a few minutes early (10:25 AM) to drop-off and settle in your child. You can pick your child up in the nursery following service. Kids ages 4 and up are encouraged to participate in the worship service together with their families, as they learn what it is to worship our great God. Children will sing to the LORD, participate in the offering, and come forward for a special children’s message. Before the congregation begins to share prayer requests, children are invited to take part in Junior Church – a special service designed just for kids! They will sing, study the Word, pray, play games, and make crafts. All childcare workers have undergone child safety training and submitted to a background check.
