Welcome to First Baptist Church!

Sunday Morning Worship is the highlight of our week and the time and place we celebrate being the People of God. Whether you’re just passing through, unsure about the church-scene, or recently found us online, we hope you’ll choose to worship with us this Sunday. 


Sunday Worship

Worship begins at 10:30 AM and concludes around 11:30 AM with refreshments and fellowship on our front steps. Many of our church members arrive a few minutes early to find a seat, introduce their infant or toddler to our nursery workers, and prepare for Worship. People who attend Worship dress in ways that feel comfortable to them–whether jeans and t-shirt or jacket and tie–and we encourage your family to come feeling authentic to who you are. 

There is a place for everyone at First Baptist Church! During the Worship hour, infants and toddlers are cared for in the nursery by our preschool ministry staff. Preschoolers and Kindergartners are invited to worship with the larger congregation and then attend ‘Wee Praise,’ where they will create their own worship offering, and then present it to the congregation when they return at the end of the service. ‘Wee Praise’ begins immediately after the Children’s Message. Children (1st – 5th grade) will be asked to return to their parents/ grandparents after the Children’s Message with a special, guided bulletin to help them worship together as a family.

Newcomers are certainly not required to give or share any information with us until they feel led to do so. We simply relish the opportunity to hear and respond to God’s Word alongside you. Please join us this Sunday as we strive to be a people who ‘Does Justice, Loves Kindness and Walks Humbly With our God.’ Micah 6:8


Weekly Schedule

The work of our church is to do justice, to love kindness and to walk humbly with our God. Join us in our weekly offerings to grow in your relationship with Christ and to serve the Lord with gladness!
