First Baptist Church, Mt. Pleasant


WHAT TO EXPECT



Welcome to First Baptist of Mt. Pleasant! 

We know that visiting a new church can be overwhelming, which is why we'd love to answer some potential questions you may have. Here are some things you can expect when you visit us on a Sunday morning... 

Where should I park? 

If you are joining us for our 9:30 Contemporary Service, we'd invite you to park closer to the back of our property near the gym where our service is held! 


If you are joining us for our 11:00 Traditional Service, we'd invite you to park closer to our sanctuary, located at the front of our property, off McCants Drive. 

What time should I arrive? 

If you have children, we encourage you to arrive 15 minutes early in order to check your kids into our children's program. If you have a 1st-5th grader, we encourage you to have your children join you in the service as we place a high value on family worship! You can find more information about our Children's Ministry here

What is the attire?

Dress comfortably. Most who attend FBC lean toward business casual, though you can find anything from jeans and a t-shirt to suits and bow ties.

What can I expect from a worship service? 

Music - The music we sing at FBC is a blend of old and new. We love the doctrinally rich hymns of the sixteenth century and we find blessing in the choruses of the twenty-first.  We strongly prefer congregational singing, which emphasizes the gathered body singing praise to God with one voice, over performed music, which tends to spotlight the abilities of some while encouraging passivity in the rest.


Body of Service - Our services formally begin at 9:30 and 11:00 am, led most often by our senior pastor or one of our elders. During those times, we sing several songs, offer prayers of praise and confession to God, hear Scripture read, and give our offerings and tithes.


Sermons - Preaching at FBC is generally expositional, meaning that it seeks to declare the point of a particular Biblical passage. Sermons usually last around forty minutes and are packed with material for reflection. All preaching is driven by the gospel, the Bible’s main message of God saving sinners through the death and resurrection of Jesus Christ.
