We're excited that you are thinking about visiting. Here is some information to help you have some questions answered before you come.
We are a Southern Baptist church, with two 11:00 services on Sunday morning that each happen at the same time, on opposite ends of the campus.
- The Traditional/Blended Service takes place in the Sanctuary. Many people wear dress clothes or business casual. Our Senior Pastor, Mark Blair, brings the message from the New American Standard (NASB) translation of the Bible.
- The Contemporary Service, called Chrysalis, takes place in the Large Fellowship Hall. Dress tends to be casual, but some wear more formal clothing. A worship band (guitars, drums, praise team, etc.) leads music and our Associate Pastor, Jonathan Goodman, brings the message from the English Standard Version (ESV) translation of the Bible.
- Children's Church (kindergarten through 3rd grade), Preschool Church, and Nursery are available during the 11:00 hour.
Sunday School takes place for all ages at 9:45 a.m. Some adult classes depending on schedules start at closer to 10:00 a.m. Children can be checked in and dropped off in classes as early as 9:40 a.m. While we have Male, Female, and Co-Ed classes, none of our Sunday School classes are distinguished by marital status. The Greeters Ministry will be glad to answer any questions you might have, and take you to any classes you are looking for.
At First Baptist we have a heart for teaching kids of all ages about Jesus. We don't just provide childcare, we want to use our time with children to aid parents in teaching the truths of the faith in a fun and engaging environment.
All of our leaders are background checked, and parents check-in their children using our system, to help ensure a safe environment for your children. For more information about children's ministry, click here.
The best place to enter when visiting for the first time is the Greeter table inside the glass doors at the far right of the church (when you are looking at it from the parking lot). Be sure to park near the building in one of our "Visitor" parking spaces. Once inside, our greeters will be happy to answer any questions and walk you where you need to go if needed. We also would like to give you a free gift. As mentioned above, the Visitor Packet can be really helpful, and the Greeters will give you one as well.
