How do I dress for church ?
Dress comfortably. While some of our members may wear their “Sunday best” most folks wear casual and comfortable clothes on Sunday mornings. Wednesday nights are always casual. Just come expecting a blessing!
Where Do My Children Go ?
First Baptist offers excellent preschool and children’s ministries. Please stop at the Visitor’s Welcome Center for assistance with where the children have their classes. During our Morning Worship there is also a Children’s Church class.
Do I have to give money if I come ?
We believe that giving is a part of worship, and we do take an offering at our service. However, you are never required to give and there is no pressure to give. We leave that to you and the Lord. People participate in giving at different times and in different ways, so no one is ever noticeable as not giving as the plate goes by.
What do I bring ?
If you have a Bible, bring it with you to church. A Bible will help you to follow along in worship and in Bible Study. If you don’t have one, that’s no problem as the church has Bibles available for use in the pews. We normally use the New American Standard Bible, but bring whatever you have.
What age groups come to your church ?
We are blessed to have a wide variety of ages in our church. We have every age group from babies to senior adults in their 90s. We have children, students, and young adults. No matter what your age, you will find somebody just like you in the service. Afterwards, we have Bible study classes for all age groups.
What happens after “big church” ?
We love congregational worship and find great value in coming together to read the word of God and worship in a corporate manner. However, we also know connections are made in smaller groups. We have a bible study groups that are broken out based on what season of life you are in to help you find common believers and connect in a deeper manner. Don’t know where to find your class? There are greeters at every door before morning worship. Let them know what you’re looking for and they will happily escort you there!
What If I Have Difficulty Hearing ?
We have hearing assistance devices available during our Sunday services. Just see an usher upon entering the Worship Center and he will provide you with a receiver.
What kind of music do you use in your service ?
We believe that music is a key factor in worship, so we try to provide meaningful ways for everyone to enjoy. Every Sunday, we use a combination of hymns and contemporary worship music. We have both a choir and a praise band. In addition, we have tremendously talented pianists and organists who accompany and play solos. We sing together congregationally and also have special performances. We think you will always find something that blesses you every Sunday.
I have more questions. Who can I talk to ?
