NEW TO FIRST BAPTIST CHURCH OF EATON RAPIDS?
Welcome! We are so glad the Lord has brought you to our page and you are interested in exploring more about our church body! So you are probably wondering what it's really like at FBC? Well simply stated, FBC is compromised of an eclectic group of individuals who are unified in our commitment to Jesus Christ and the truth of the Bible. Below you will find some info and answers to some common questions you might have before visiting us here at First Baptist. We hope you will join us as we seek to Worship the Lord while doing life together and encouraging one another in our walk with Christ!
Sunday School | 9:30am - 10:30am
There is something for everyone. We have an adult Sunday School class as well as classes for infants, toddlers, and teens.
Worship Service | 10:45am - 12pm
Here you will be encouraged to worship God through song, prayer, and diving deep into God’s life changing Word. The musical style is a blend of powerful hymns and contemporary praise songs. We put a high value on the bold and unashamed preaching of God's word. Our pastor teaches expositionally (verse by verse), relevantly, and applicably by showing us how to apply the passage to our day to day lives.
The nursery and pre-k programs are available both during Sunday School and Worship service for children ages 0 to 5. Children can be dropped off anytime starting at 9:30am. We have a paging system so upon drop-off, you will be assigned a buzzer so you can rest easy knowing we will page you if any issues or needs arise. Please fill out the child registration form here prior to attendance
Children grades Kindergarten - 6th attend Worship service with their parents for the singing portion of service. After singing, children are then dismissed from service for "Kid's Church". (More information about our children's ministry programs can be found here)
What should I wear?
You'll see people in their "Sunday" clothes and others who are in jeans and a tee shirt. Either is great. We are about worshiping God and caring for each other, not impressing each other.
Do I have to give money?
If it’s your first time or hundredth time we are not going to force you to give anything and none of the leadership knows who gives. Why? We want that to be something between you and the Lord. If you feel lead to give and support the ministry of FBC, then we want you to give out of thankfulness and joy for who God is and what He has done for you.
Are there areas for kids, youth and adults to connect outside of Sunday morning?
Absolutely. We want our church to feel like family and in order for us to feel like family we need to be spending time with each other and encouraging each other throughout the week in addition to our gathering together on Sunday mornings.
