At First Baptist Church, we're always excited to welcome new visitors. We hope you'll join us for a service, and we want to make your visit as comfortable as possible. Here's what you can expect when you come to Sunday School at 9:30 a.m. and worship 10:45 a.m.
Our church sanctuary is located at 218 Lauderdale Street, and parking is located on Dallas Avenue adjacent to the church, and at 325 Lauderdale Street (corner of Lauderdale Street and Dallas Avenue). If you have mobility restrictions or young children to carry, feel free to use one of the spots closest to the door. We like to keep them free for people who need assistance.
Please don't worry about what you'll wear to church, for we truly believe people should come to God as they are. You don't need to dress up to get his approval--that comes through Jesus' sacrifice. Once you walk in the doors, you'll see that the congregation has all types of people in all kinds of dress. While a few people in the church wear ties, others like to remind them that Jesus never wore a tie. Shorts are as welcome as suits, and you'll see both.
When you walk in, find one of our greeters and introduce yourself. They're usually stationed at the doors. The nursery and children's Sunday school rooms are located at 325 Lauderdale Street in our New Educational Building (Read more about our Children's ministry room locations here). Our greeters can also point you to the restrooms, sanctuary and any other room. If you have any questions about the service itself, the greeters are able to provide helpful answers.
