Your First Visit
Visiting Grace Baptist Church… Visiting any church for the very first time can be a tough experience. Well, we want to put you at ease. Your first visit to Grace will be refreshing, friendly, and enjoyable for your whole family.

Here are a few answers to some questions you may have and some information on what you might expect at your first visit.

What can I expect on my first visit?
You can’t miss our church at the intersection of Highway 301 and Centenial Road sitting on top of the hill. Once inside the foyer, you will find an Information Center where our members will help direct you to where you need to go. Most adults attend our regular worship service where they enjoy the beautiful music of ensembles, and soloists. The music is always followed by a clear, helpful, and challenging Bible message from Pastor Carpenter. There is also a service for the children at the same time as the main worship service. Also at 10 am, we have Bible Study Fellowship classes for all teenagers and adults. These classes are smaller group settings where you are invited to meet people, enjoy perhaps some coffee and donuts, and hear a teaching lesson more directly applicable to your life-stage. The best way to get to know people at Grace Baptist Church is to visit one of these adult Bible classes. Sunday school classes are also available for all children at 10 am.
Where do I take my children?
Starting with excellent nurseries, there is something special for every age child. At every service there are safe, clean, and highly staffed nurseries for children three years old and under. For children four years old through sixth grade there are fun, friendly, and Bible-centered classes. These classes are staffed with trained, friendly, and well-qualified teachers and helpers who will make church exciting and memorable for your child. We would like to help you find the appropriate nurseries, classes, and services for every person in your family. Our greeters and ushers are located in the lobby even escort you to the right place.
How should I dress?
There is not a dress code at Grace Baptist Church for members or guests. Our ministry leaders and many of our church family dress in more traditional “Sunday” dress; however, our main goal is that you would feel welcome and comfortable on your visit here at Grace!
Am I Expected to Participate in the Offering?
No. We don’t invite you to Grace Baptist Church for your offering. We want our service to be a gift to you. We hope you will find in this place a warm family spirit, truth from God’s Word, and a place where you can grow in God’s grace. Please don’t feel any obligation to participate in the offering as a guest.
If there’s something we missed on this list, just give us a call, or ask someone when you arrive. Whether you’re new to the area and looking for a church home, or if it’s been a long time since you’ve attended church at all, we hope your first visit to Grace Baptist will be awesome! We exist to serve you and your family, and we are looking forward to meeting you personally. We hope you’ll feel right at home from the very first moment you step into our church! Let us know how we can serve you better, and we hope to meet you this Sunday!
