We know meeting someone for the first time can be intimidating, and going to a new church for the first time can be nerve-wracking, too. We want to help make your first experience at First Baptist a great one!

What to Expect
How long are services at First Baptist?
A typical worship service at First Baptist is 60 minutes long. We’ll begin with a welcome, a few announcements, and an opening prayer. Next, Sarah and the band will lead us in a couple of songs, followed by the Scripture reading for the day and a couple of more songs. The pastor will share a message from God’s word. We typically close with an invitation. Our 11:00 service is live-streamed in our CLC (Christian Life Center) on a large screen with plenty of social distancing seating.
What is the culture like at First Baptist?
If you happen to walk through the doors of our church, you won’t be met with shame, guilt, or condemnation. We don’t care how you’re dressed or what candidate you voted for. Our church is made up of real people who are trying to figure this thing called “life” out together. Services are geared toward both the long-time Christian and the first- time guest. When you walk out the doors at the end of a worship service, our hope is that you will have experienced God in a way you maybe never have before.
What about COVID-19?
Due to COVID-19, we ask that you enter the sanctuary through the side entrance (nearest the concrete ramp) and exit through the foyer of the sanctuary. About 3/4 of the sanctuary is still set up for socail distancing. Two collection baskets are located in the foyer near the front doors in which you may place your offering. All touchable surfaces are cleaned between the services for your safety.
What about my kids?
Kids and families are a huge part of First Baptist, and that’s why we want to make sure your kids have a blast learning about Jesus every week-end! Children’s Church is our kid’s ministry for 4-year olds through second grade during the 11:00 a.m. worship service. Your kids will have fun singing songs, playing games, doing crafts, and experiencing God in an interactive and safe environment. A nursery is also available during each service where our team of volunteers will love on your babies ages 0 to 2 while you attend a worship service and go to Sunday school.
