When do we meet?
How do you get here?
Where do you go when you arrive?
If you are visiting our 8:15 First Fellowship service, you’ll probably want to enter our property from St. Clair Avenue and park where you see signs for Guest Parking. There, you can easily access our Life Center.
However, if you are attending our 10:30 Sanctuary Service, you may find that entering our parking lot from Governors Drive and utilizing the Guest Parking on the front of our building is easier.
Guests arriving for our Bible Study at 9:15 can use either of these two entrances, and our children's area is accessible from both for parents who seek to check-in their little ones for Children's Bible Study.
If you are coming during the week, the entrances located near the offices (dark blue on the map) will be your best entrance.

where do your kids go?
We encourage children ages 5 and up to worship with their parents at the 8:15 and 10:30 worship hours. There are age-appropriate resources available for your little ones on a bookshelf just outside of each worship service. For children 4 and under, we provide care on our Preschool Hallway during worship.
During the 9:15 hour, we provide age-appropriate Bible Study for all children birth through 6th grade, in our 2nd and 3rd floor children's spaces.
For security, we require all children to be checked-in at one of our various kiosks located outside of our Children's spaces. To pre-register your child for this coming Sunday, click here.
***Students who are 7th-grade and above are a part of our Student Ministry and will go to the Student Center for the 9:15 Bible Study hour.
***Volunteers who work with any aged child, from birth to 18, are required to pass background checks with the local Police Department as well as national registries, and are trained in best practices by qualified leaders.
New Children's Space
In 2019, our church decided to undergo a renovation of our Children's Ministry area. This project is expected to be complete in 2022. You can view renderings of the renovation above, and read more about it here.
What Should You wear?
In the early (contemporary-style) service which meets in our Life Center, you will find most people dressed in anything from business-casual to jeans and T-shirts. In the later (traditional-style) service that meets in our sanctuary, you will find most people dressed in business-casual or jackets and ties for men and slacks or dresses for women.
However, we have no “dress code,” so feel free to come as you are!
We hope you feel welcome at First Baptist. If you have any questions before or after your first visit with us, please feel free to contact us!
