What to expect
Visiting a church or the first time can be a tough experience. Well, we want to put you at ease. Your first visit to Fellowship Baptist Church will be refreshing, friendly, and enjoyable for your whole family. We want you to experience inspiring music, helpful preaching and teaching, friendly people and a place where you feel welcomed and "at home"! Here are a few answers to your questions and what to expect during your first visit.
From Our Members
You should expect a warm and friendly welcome at the door and a family atmosphere when you walk into the church building. If you have young children we have nurseries staffed by our experienced volunteer staff. Sunday mornings bring classes for all ages and walks of life. From four years old to one hundred and four years old, we have you covered. Each teacher loves the Lord and will teach from God's Word. Our members will help and encourage your walk with the Lord, and our desire is to be available if you ever need us.
If you are a visitor during our 10:45 morning worship time, a friendly usher will give you a card to fill out so that we have record of your attendance. This will give us a chance to get to know you a little better and send you home with a thank-you gift.
Our church is located on the east side of town, off Olive Street. As you approach the entrance of our church, one of our hospitality greeters will meet you to direct you to the right classrooms and auditorium. They can also answer any questions you may have.
Most adults attend the worship service; where they enjoy the traditional music of the choir, ensembles, and soloists. The music is always followed by a clear, helpful and challenging Bible message from Pastor Ed Hannahs. The services are usually a little over one hour in length.
How Should I Dress?
There is no dress code at Fellowship Baptist Church for members or guests. Our ministry leaders and many of our church family dress in more "traditional" Sunday dress; however, our main goal is that you feel welcome and comfortable on your visit here at Fellowship Baptist Church.
Am I Expected to Participate in the offering?
No, we don't invite you to Fellowship Baptist Church for your offering. We want our service to be a gift to you. We hope you will find in this place a warm family spirit, truth from God's Word, and a place where you can grow in God's grace. Please don't feel any obligation to participate in the offering as a guest.
