Welcome! We are glad that you found us! Church can be a big, confusing place and we realize that you may have a lot of questions about your first time visiting with us. We would like to ease your concerns.
Here are some FAQ (Frequently Asked Questions):
How do I get there?
We have provided a map and directions for you here.
Where do I park?
We have adequate parking all around our facilities, but since you are our guest, look for the blue signs in our main parking lots that say “visitor” and park there. If you need handicapped parking we provide those too!
When and where is worship time?
10:45AM every Sunday morning in our Sanctuary.
How should I dress?
Some people like to wear their “Sunday best” while others dress very casually. Most people wear what could be described as “business casual”, but we want you to wear what you feel comfortable wearing. God sees your heart.
What can I expect on my first visit?
First, you can expect to be greeted by someone before you even enter the doors of our building. Other friendly folks will be happy to assist you in finding your way around and can give you more information about our church. We make every effort not to embarrass you or make you feel uncomfortable. We will invite you to fill out a guest registration card so that we can get to know you better, but it is optional.
What is the worship service like?
Our worship services are approximately 90 minutes long. We sing both favorite traditional hymns of the church, as well as the latest contemporary worship songs. An offering is taken during the service, but please do not feel obligated to give anything unless you would like to do so. Toward the end of the service, the pastor will invite people to come forward to make spiritual decisions or join the church if they choose to do so. If you just want to talk to someone or have them pray for you, we are happy to arrange for that as well. To listen to a recent sermon by our pastor, click here.
Where do I take my children?
If you have a child age 3 or under, someone can escort you to our Nursery where they will be cared for by loving and qualified caregivers. You will be given a security tag which matches a tag placed on your child’s clothing to make sure that you, as the authorized parent or guardian, are the only person able to take them home whenever you leave. If our nursery staff ever needs to contact you immediately, you can give them your mobile phone number and they can text you.
If you have a child age 4 years through 5th grade, they will stay in the worship service with you until just before the pastor’s sermon, at which time they are welcome to go to Kids Worship in Room 200 of our Education Building. You are welcome to escort your child to the room so that you know where to find them after worship is over. If your child prefers to stay with you in the Sanctuary, they may do so. We have other Children’s ministry activities that you can find out more about here or contact Children’s Minister, Shelley Kizer.
What do you offer for teenagers (grades 6 – 12)?
We do not offer a separate Youth Worship, but we do provide small groups for them on Sundays at 9:00am. Also, we provide a Youth Worship service on Wednesday nights with a youth praise band and a message geared toward their needs. For more information, go to the Student ministry page here or contact Jason Cullison.
How can I get involved in a small group or a ministry?
We have Sunday morning Bible Family Groups at 9:00am every Sunday. Groups are composed of loose age groupings and use different Bible Study materials, but we do not assign anyone to these groups. You are encouraged to visit a few and see where you fit it best. To see a list of all of our groups, group leader names and meeting room numbers, go here. For more information, contact our Associate Pastor, Greg Lewis.
We have many opportunities to serve at FBC! Many positions have specific qualifications and requirements, while others are open to most anyone. Contact Greg Lewis for more information.
