What to Expect
First Baptist Church is a congregation that celebrates Christ through the Fine Arts. Using traditional music, our worship services are characterized by traditional hymns and sacred music performed by the Chancel Choir. Our worship is periodically enhanced by instrumental ensembles, an adult hand bell choir and the children's choir.
The dress for worship at First Baptist Church is generally "business casual," although all are welcome regardless of their attire. Our greeters and ushers are available to provide direction, and are happy answer questions and assist our guests. Prior to worship, all members and guests are invited to gather in the Narthex for our Coffee Fellowship time.
Elementary age children are invited to join their families for worship at 10:00 am. Following the Children's Sermon, children are then dismissed to Children's Worship. Busy Bags and tablets are provided at the Information Center for children wishing to remain with their families during the duration of worship.
Children & Youth
There are several activities for offered for our youngest members, which conveniently coincide with adult ministries and programs:
- Childcare is available for children ages 0-2 years
- Children's Worship is available for children ages 3-5 years, and grades 1-5
- Youth Group is available for students grades 6-12 on Wednesday's at 6:30 pm
Childcare workers and adult volunteers are trained and criminal background checks are conducted as a part of their screening.
Current Sermon Series
Proverbs 4:23 reminds us to "Guard our hearts above all else, for it determines the course of our lives." The wisdom here lies in the truth that we are shaped by our desires. To put it more concisely, we are what we love! How do we reorient our hearts toward God and his kingdom when things become unclear? Shaped by Desire is the focus of Pastor Tim's new sermon series. Through it, we will learn together how worship becomes instrumental in reforming and reshaping our hearts.
