Worship at First Baptist Church of Christ
It’s been said that we are most ourselves when we are worshiping God. It’s in this spirit that we believe worship is at the heart of what we do and who we are as a church. Worship is not a time set aside for us come into God’s presence, but rather a time when we consciously open ourselves to a God who is always and everywhere present.
We like to think of our worship style as “warmly liturgical,” with an ecumenical spirit. We follow the Christian Year and celebrate the seasons of the church. The sanctuary choir leads us in music and we sing hymns (from a hymnal!) with a variety of instruments, including the pipe organ, piano and strings. Prayers are lifted, an offering is received, the Doxology is sung, a sermon is given and the Lord’s Supper is celebrated about once a month.
Children three and older are invited to join us in worship. We have a weekly “time for children” early in the service, after which the preschoolers are invited to leave for Working on Worship (W.O.W), where they learn and worship together.
CDs and DVDs of most services are available upon request. A week-delayed broadcast of our Sunday morning service can be watch on local Channel 18 at 2:00 p.m. on Sundays
