First Visit

 

Welcome to Friendship Baptist Church!

We're so glad you found us. Sunday mornings at Friendship Baptist Church provides opportunities for people of all ages to experience Faith—Family—Friends.

If you are considering relocating to our area, or you are looking for a new church home, we would be honored to have you worship with us. When you visit our church, you will find:

  • A caring/welcoming congregation;
  • Relevant Bible-centered worship, proclamation, and teaching;
  • Relational groups and opportunities to serve;
  • A community of believers excited about Jesus Christ. 

Because it can be intimidating to visit a church for the first time, we've tried to anticipate some of your questions. TAKE A MOMENT . . . Watch the three minute Friendship Baptist Church welcome video and explore the information below.

Jesus is Wonderful,

WHAT CAN I EXPECT?

We gather together as a family every Sunday so we can be equipped to scatter together across our community during the week. Our Sundays feature relevant biblical teaching that speaks directly to all facets of life, relevant music that uplifts and leads us to encounter and worship God, and relevant, age-appropriate groups.  

There are also missional community groups that meet throughout the week, who are on mission together to make disciples of Jesus in the places where we live, work and play.

WHAT IS WORSHIP LIKE?

Through our worship arts teams, you’ll experience an amazing time of worship directed to God alone. We mix contemporary worship songs with upbeat traditional hymns of the faith to achieve a great balance of worship styles. Our worship time is carefully planned to prepare hearts and minds to receive what God will say through the preaching of His Word. Click here for more information.


WHERE SHOULD I GO FIRST?

Look for the Welcome  sign outside the main entrance doors. Please stop by our Welcome Desk in the main lobby. Our friendly staff there will tell you about our Sunday Morning GrowGroup Bible Studies for all ages, and answer your questions. When you visit prior to Sunday school, you’ll be greeted by church members who will give you information about the various class listings for adults (and children) and escort you and your family to your Sunday Bible Study classes. If you are joining us for Worship, you’ll find volunteers eager to meet you and tell you more about our congregation. Helping you find your way to your destination is the goal of our Welcome Team.


WHAT ABOUT MY NEWBORN TO PRESCHOOL AGE CHILDREN (Birth to 4 years old)

A child's world is made up of relationships, and we want to ensure each child has the opportunity to develop personal friendships with God and other children. Our children's ministries are lead by committed volunteers who work with each child to help them learn about God and His love for them.

There are many opportunities for your child to learn about the message of God's love.  We minister to all of the children using a simple, delightful enlightening approach. Promiseland is built around God's love and biblical truth.  It provides a safe and enjoyable place where every child can grow in their relationships with each other and God.

We provide childcare for all services Sunday morning.  There are separate nurseries based on age. During worship services, we share the love of Jesus through bible stories, playing, rocking, and caring for the needs of children. Promiseland is available for you:

  • Sunday Worship Services 8:30 & 11:00am
  • Sunday School at 9:45am
