What To Expect On Sunday Mornings
Our Worship Services are at 8:45am and 10:30am on Sunday mornings. You can expect about an hour to an hour and 15 minute service. We value worshipping God every Sunday! Our community worships by singing and taking occasional opportunities to pray. There are greeters and ushers in blue shirts ready to help you every Sunday, don’t be afraid to say hi they’d love to meet you!
We have one parking lot behind the playground/ basketball court and one parking lot behind our Ministry Center Office/across from the playground. You are also free to use Draper St. and the Memorial Park for parking.
Nursery-3rd grade check-in at the Kid’s Check-in Room and 4th-8th grade check-in at the Youth Room. Both of these rooms are on Draper St. at 1733 Draper St. As you go toward the red brick Worship Center, you’ll see signs to direct you!
Nursery-3rd graders must have a name tag to check-in and parents will receive a guardian name tag to show the teacher for pick-up. If you’re new to First Baptist, you’ll be asked to sign a registration card so we have your child’s age, birthday, and important contact information. You will be asked to fill out a name tag so we can know your child’s name and have your contact information in case it’s needed.
The rooms for nursery-PreK are downstairs and K-3rd are upstairs.
4th-8th graders meet in the Youth Room, which is on the corner of Draper and Washington St.. First-time students will also fill out an emergency and registration card and then they’re all set! Pick up the kids in the same room after service, you can pick them up through the hallway entrance by the Green if you’d like.
Our church body ranges in church attire! Some people feel most comfortable in something casual like jeans, a t-shirt and tennis shoes while others love to wear a button-up or a dress. Don’t feel pressure to look a certain way, we’re excited to see you no matter what!
We love that we have a multi-generational community at First Baptist! We have every age with varying lengths of time that they have joined us. Whether you’re new or have visited before, a seat is waiting for you.
We have an elevator on the left-side of the Worship Center when needed. Please ask a greeter in front of the Worship Center for guidance!
We have a Cry Room in the Worship Center to the very right past the bathrooms. You will be able to see and hear the message while having the comfort you need for your kiddos.
We’d love for you to enjoy a coffee or drink at our Coffee Shop before, between, or after service. Scotty’s Place is across from the playground.
Our 7th-8th graders meet from 3:30pm-5pm and 9th-12th graders meet from 6pm-7:30pm on Sunday evenings (starting September 17). 7th-12th graders will check-in at the Youth Center on Sunday evenings (starting September 17) at the corner of Draper Street and Washington Street, just like Sunday mornings.
7th-12th graders will play games, hear a teaching, break up into small groups, and connect with each other and their leaders. If you’re joining us for the first time, you will sign a registration card and jump right in!
The Green and the playground are open for play! On Tuesdays from October 10-November 14 we’d love for you to bring some friends to grow in community at First Baptist. From 10am-10:30am there will be storytime (book reading, songs, & games) for toddlers and Pre-K kids. The gates will be open from 9am-1pm for all ages to come out and run around.
Our PreK-3rd graders registered in Resilient Kids meet from 6:10pm-7:45pm on Wednesdays (starting September 13) and they check-in in the Kids Check-in Room (please enter through the Draper Street entrance). All kids must have a name tag. PreK-1st graders are picked up from their same classroom every Wednesday. 2nd-3rd graders are picked up from their leaders on the basketball court after they finish their post-rec prayer time. Sign up here to register, sign up here for the waitlist.
Our 4th-6th graders meet from 6:10pm-7:45pm on Wednesdays (starting September 13) and they check-in and check-out at the Youth Center at the corner of Draper Street and Washington Street, just like on Sunday mornings. 4th-6th graders will play games, hear a teaching, break up into small groups, and connect with each other and their leaders. If you’re joining us for the first time, you will sign a registration card and jump right in!
Women of all ages are invited to join the Wednesday Women’s Bible study that meets at 6:15pm-7:45pm in the Ministry Center Office East Room (1615 Draper St.). They will be studying a devotional about abiding in Christ. You can register here (starting September 13).
