The postmodern world that surrounds us yearns for stability, morality, security, fidelity, faith, hope, and love. These deep needs can only be met through the One who meets our deepest needs for Truth. Let us make sure that the worship services we plan and conduct present that Truth in all its clarity and beauty and goodness.
- Marva J. Dawn, A ROYAL "WASTE" OF TIME: THE SPLENDOR OF WORSHIPING GOD AND BEING CHURCH FOR THE WORLD, Eerdmans Publishing Co., 1999, p. 69.
"My friends, church is for getting a foretaste of the kingdom. It is community that whets our appetite for new creation. It is where we get a small sliver of the wedding cake of the feast of the lamb that will be for all of us who enter eternal life through him. And the communion of the church is the taste that should linger on our lips as we live for Christ each day."
It Takes A Church...- Todd Bolsinger
What Should I Expect?
Worship services at First Baptist take place in the multi-purpose building, the one behind the brick church Education Building. The entrance is between the two buildings. There are Bible studies for all ages at 9:00am and the Sunday morning service begins at 10:00am and lasts approximately one hour. The following is a representative sample of a Sunday morning service:
Scripture and Prayer Time
Children's Time with the Pastor
Message by Pastor Davidson
Offering and Announcements
A nursery is available in the back of the education building for both bed babies and toddlers. Pre-school church takes place in room L-6 of the Education Building. Children's church takes place in the upstairs of the Worship Center after the congregational singing.
What about Wednesday and Sunday night?
Sunday night is a little more informal time to gather and sing praises to the Lord and listen to teaching on a variety of topics from the pastor, associate pastors, lay leaders, or special guests. Prior to the service is choir practice at 5:15pm. The choir is a special group who enjoys each others' company and preparing special music for worship. Everyone is welcome.
Wednesday night is a good time of activities for all age groups. Before worship and Bible Study we have a light dinner at 5;30pm.
