Sundays at First Baptist Church

When you arrive, we encourage you to park in the rear of the church, in the lot that enters off of Crestmere.  There you will find specially marked parking places for you, our guest. We encourage you to enter through our main entrance which is marked by three large doors underneath a larger porte cache.  Inside you will find our welcome center where greeters will be happy to assist you in finding a Bible Study class for or the Sanctuary for worship.

Sunday School

Bible Study begins at 9:30.  There are Bible Study classes for all ages including children, youth, and adults.  If by chance you cannot join us for Bible Study, Radio Bible Class, it can be heard on WESPN, 680 AM and ESPN 92.9 FM at 10:30 am. 


Worship begins at 11:00.  Our worship style is best characterized as traditional, though we make use of both liturgical and contemporary elements.  We follow the Christian calendar year, marking the seasons of Advent, the season after Epiphany, Lent, Eastertide, and Pentecost.  We observe communion monthly and all who seek God in the person of Jesus Christ are welcome to participate.  Childcare is provided for children under the age of 3.  Children ages 3 through 2nd Grade, begin worship in the sanctuary, but then leave for their own worship experience in the children’s area. Our worship services are broadcast over WESPN, 680 AM and ESPN 92.9 FM.

Modern Vespers, a new contemporary, emergence service is held at 6:00 in the Chapel on the first and third Sunday evenings. (Modern Vesper will resume October 18, 2016).
