Worship by the First Baptist community does not fit neatly into one of the two well-known and well-worn categories: "contemporary" or "traditional."  Our worship is interactive, participatory and focused on God.  In worship we celebrate the good news of Jesus and the presence of the Holy Spirit.  We employ both ancient and modern forms that help us touch the transcendent as we seek a divine perspective on our lives in the world.

Because our congregation is diverse in age, we use worship songs and texts that are ageless.  Because our congregation is unified around our mission, we worship God together in one service on Sunday mornings.  Because our congregation is part of a world-wide communion, we celebrate the many types of worship we find among God's people.

Although imperfectly, we have committed ourselves to worship that speaks the truth about God and makes God preeminent in our lives.

Childcare is provided for Birth through Three years of age.  Four and Five year-olds attend the first part of worship with their parents and leave the sanctuary before the sermon time to attend age appropriate Worship Education with their teachers.

The Music Ministry at First Baptist works with all ages, children, youth and adults.  Choirs, handbells, orchestra and instrumental ensemble are available for various ages and groups. There is a place for everyone in the FBC music ministry. For more information, contact the FBC Music Office, 274.3286, x239.  To email: click the contact below:
