For many in the community, First Baptist Church of Norristown is home. We are a community of believers from all walks of life. You can find loving parents trying to help their children navigate through their lives. You'll find grandparents and great-grandparents delighted to spoil their grandchildren and great-grandchildren. We are a church with students making their way through their school careers, and young families excited to enter a new stage of life. You'll meet blue-collar workers, office managers, medical professionals, business owners, retirees, and stay-at-home parents. You'll find avid sports fans, excellent cooks, and dedicated hobbyists. And, most importantly, you will discover a community of messy and broken people, lavishly loved by Jesus Christ.
What's Worship Like?
Our worship consists primarily of four parts: music, prayer, connection, and the Word. Our music is a blend of traditional hymns and contemporary praise songs, led by our talented Praise Team. We dedicate a portion of the service to open the floor to anyone who wants to share a praise or prayer concern. The Word of God is the foundation for all that we do in church, and we receive the message every week from our pastor (and, occasionally, guest speakers). We also have an opportunity to partake in communion on the first Sunday of each month. Our service begins at 10:30 AM and is finished before 12:00 PM. We also encourage you to stay after the service to connect with members of the church and enjoy some delicious snacks! Additionally, we provide free child care during our service. Learn more about our youth programs on our Children's Ministry page.
What Should I Wear?
Whatever you find most comfortable! Jesus' desire is that you come to know Him, and make Him known to the world. Really, He doesn't care how dressed-up or dressed-down you are. Whether you want to worship in a suit or dress, khakis and a button-down, or jeans and a t-shirt, you are welcome in the House of the Lord.
Where Is The Church?
Our address is 445 Burnside Avenue, Norristown, PA 19403. We are located right across the road from Norristown Area High School. The church is somewhat set back from the road, so make sure to keep an eye out as you're driving by. We look forward to seeing you soon!
