We are always happy you’ve decided to worship with us. We believe it is no accident that you’ve arrived.
What happens during the worship service?
Usually, we begin by celebrating what God is doing by worshiping in song, led by our Worship Team and/or our Worship Choir. Most people stand during this time, however, there is complete freedom to be seated if you prefer. Feel free to worship the way you feel the Holy Spirit is leading you to worship! The words of all of the songs are projected onto screens, and you can either sing along or just sit back and enjoy the music. You’ll probably hear songs you can relate to even if you haven’t been to church in years.
Then, we are welcomed and in turn, welcome one another. Please feel free to move around, shake hands, give hugs and introduce yourself, or sit down and relax!
We will then continue our worship in song and celebrate what God has done.
Next is our weekly message, typically presented by Pastor Tim. It’s when we read the Bible together, consider what God is saying, and apply it to our lives.
We will offer a time of preparation and/or intercessory prayer.
Monthly, communion is offered to all Christ followers.
Then, like most churches we receive an offering. If you’re a first time guest – relax! The worship service is “on us” and there’s no obligation at all on your part. Just pass the offering basket on down the row — really!
Is it that easy?
Definitely. You won’t be asked to stand or raise your hand (or anything else embarrassing) just because you’re new. Nor will you have to recite anything or kneel at certain times during the service.
How long does the service last?
The service lasts about an 1 hour and 40 minutes.
What about after the service?
While it’s up to you, don’t feel that you have to hurry out the door. If you’ve filled out a FBC Communication Card, stop by the Welcome Center to turn it in and collect the gift we have for you! Feel free to talk with one of the pastors, meet some of our people, or check out what’s on our bulletin boards down the main hall.
