Sunday Services

Starting Sunday, January 5, 2020, our Sunday service times will change to the times listed below. Some may be drawn to the informality of the Revive service, and others may be drawn to the more formal atmosphere of the Exalt service — but in both services our goal is to bring the Lord authentic worship, to worship “in spirit and in truth” (John 4:23). We will worship through music, prayer, confession, communion, Scripture reading, times of silence, and hearing the gospel proclaimed through preaching.

8:30AM | Sanctuary
Exalt Worship
The Exalt service will honor a rich heritage of choral music and organ accompaniment, within an environment that is focused on reverence and beauty. We will worship God “in the splendor of His holiness” (Psalm 29:2).

9:45 AM | BCEB, HUB
LifeGroups for All Ages
We encourage everyone here at First Baptist to get connected to one of our Bible study classes called LifeGroups… it's "the church within the church." LifeGroups are available for all ages. This is where real, life-enriching relationships can form and develop. To find a LifeGroup that fits you, click here.

10:30 AM | The ROC
Puertas Abiertas
The FBCL Puertas Abiertas, or "Open Doors,” ministry welcomes all people who wish to worship during a Spanish-language service in the ROC gymnasium.

Revive Worship
The Revive service will feature a variety of musical styles and instrumentation, within an environment that is focused on God’s closeness and the revitalizing presence of the Holy Spirit. We will invite worshippers to “taste and see that the Lord is good” (Psalm 34:8).

Afternoon Bible Study at Arabella
