Worship at First Baptist

Without question, the worship of God is the most important function of a church. It is easy to define what worship is not. Worship is not entertainment; it is not evangelism; it is not activities and announcements; it is not an intellectual exercise; it is not an emotional high; and it is not a means to an end. It is the end itself.

We must remember that God is not seeking workers, but worshippers. God doesn't need us to accomplish God's work, but God does want our fellowship. The other things that we do for God in the church (teach, lead, give, etc.) are an outgrowth of our worship and our relationship to God.

At First Baptist, our services follow a specific theme each week through prayers, hymns, readings, special music and the sermon. Care is taken to make this hour as meaningful as possible, with all elements of the service focusing our minds and affections on God.

Children's Worship Education


Children's Worship Education offers worship expeirences  for children ages 4 - 2nd grade and serves to partner with parents in educating  our children about Worship at FBC.  The "wonder" of experiencing God is a learned skill. Worship Education offers "practice" for children. 

 All age children will be invited to come forward for Moments with Children with the Minister of Faith Development during the Sunday morning 11:00 a.m. Worship service. 

After the Children's Moment children ages four through second grade  have the option to stay and worship with their family for the remainder of the service,  or attend Children's Worship Education. 


First Baptist is committed to providing ministries to the entire family. We believe that families should worship together whenever possible. Children learn to worship by worshipping - observing and participating with  the family in worship provides a powerful example of faith.

Children's Worship Education can provide opportunities needed for our young children and their  families as they learn and grow in their understanding of what it means to worship God by easing into worship.


The children will exit the sanctuary through the doors nearest the piano and follow the leader to the second floor.  Parents will need to come get their children immediately after the service. Please do not send an older child to pick up a child.


When a child promotes into the 4 year old Sunday Morning Bible Study class, they have the option to attendChildren's Worship Education. Once completed 2nd grade, children attend worship with their family. .
