wE GET IT

We know that visiting a church can be intimidating. Although it’s impossible to remove all the anxiety, a little information may be helpful.

We are Jesus people. Everything we do is about him.

We believe the Bible is the Word of God. We talk about it a lot.

We are not perfect. Not even close.

We don’t expect you to fit in. Just be yourself.

We will not ignore or embarrass you.

You will meet people here who aren’t like you, and we think that’s a good thing.

We love good music and use all kinds of voices and instruments.

We sing mostly newer songs but we still love the great hymns.

Your kids will love it here. They may not want to leave.

We would love to have you join us this week!

Plenty of parking is available on our campus including handicap accessible parking at all entrances. We do reserve our most convenient spaces for our  first time guests. Feel free to use one! 

Entry / Welcome Center

The best place to start your day at First Baptist is at our Welcome Center. The Welcome Center is located in the heart of our campus inside the Sanctuary Building (the building with the Steeple) and is easily accessible from the parking lots. A door greeter will escort you to the Welcome Center where you will be provided with any information or assistance you may need.

Check-In Procedure:

For the safety of our children, preschoolers and children through 6th grade must be brought to the Children's Building Welcome Center by a parent or adult guardian. First-time guests will fill out an information card for each child and receive a parent security badge matching the security badge of their child. In order to check out the child, he/she must present the badge to the desk attendant. Parents or guardians will be contacted by text message (cell on vibrate) if their child has a need.

Nursery Care

The nursery is available for ages birth - 4 during both the Sunday School (8:45 AM) and church worship service hour (10 AM); as well during our Sunday evening (6 PM - 7 PM) and Wednesday evening (5:30 PM - 7 PM) activities.

Sunday School

Children meet in small, age-graded groups from 8:45 AM - 9:45 AM in the Children's Building. They will check in at our the Welcome Center to be directed to the appropriate classroom. We utilize Explore the Bible curriculum, diving deep into God's Word, one book of the Bible at a time, through engaging, interactive lessons.

Junior Worship

Junior Worship is a worship experience for children ages kindergarten - 4th grade, that takes place during the sermon portion of our 10 AM Sunday morning worship service. Children will be dismissed from the worship service at that point to our adjacent chapel. For more information visit our Junior Worship Facebook page here.
