WORSHIP SERVICE

Worship Bulletin—Our worship bulletin is published weekly and contains information about current events of the church.

Invitation—The invitation is given at the end of the sermon as a time of response to the service. During this time, people can walk forward to a pastor to join the church, ask for prayer, share a decision for Christ, etc.

Offering—As our guest your presence today in worship is your offering. Do not feel obligated to give. Giving is the obligation of the members and regular attendees of First Baptist.

Guest Card—As you are seated in worship, you will notice a small rack in front of you. In the rack, you will find a Welcome Card. Please take a moment to fill out this card and place it in the offering plate during the service. You can also give the card to a church pastor during the guest reception.

Guest Reception—At the end of each Sunday morning service, Dr. Jackson and our staff host a guest reception at the Welcome Center. The reception is a time to meet Dr. Jackson, the staff and ask questions about First Baptist. The Welcome Center is located in the center of the Worship Center hallway.
