What To Expect On Your First Visit

cropped-100_5851.jpgAs a church our main goal is to please Christ in everything we do. As a result, every service is an opportunity for an inspiring time of worship. If you’re like most people, you may have questions as to what a service at Lighthouse Baptist Church might be like. So what can you expect from a service at Lighthouse Baptist Church?

What are the services like?

All of our church services are considered traditional. The services begin with uplifting music, prayer, and a time of greeting, followed by a practical message from the Bible.

Will I have an opportunity to meet my children’s Sunday School teachers?

Yes. Our 10 am Sunday School begins with a Grand Assembly in the auditorium (just come in the front door from the parking lot). During this time, all of the classes assemble for the first few minutes for fellowship, singing and prayer. It is a great opportunity to meet our teachers and for your children to meet other children their age before going off to class.

Do you have a children’s church service?

Yes, we have an excellent junior church program for children 12 years old and under. They meet in our church gym for songs and Bible preaching. This program is led by our Children’s Pastor, Bro. Shelby Pritchard, and his team of helpers. We understand that many parents may prefer to keep their children with them in the main service the first time they visit, but the junior church service is available if your kids would like to attend!

Do you have a nursery available?

Yes, for children up through age 3. Just come in the front door and our ushers will direct you to the nursery area and introduce you to the nursery workers. We have a pager system which will allow the nursery workers to contact you if there are any problems or needs during the service.

What should I wear?

There is not a dress code at Lighthouse 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 Lighthouse Baptist.

Am I Expected to Participate in the Offering?

No. We don’t invite you to Lighthouse 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.

Will I be asked to do anything?

Everyone who attends Lighthouse Baptist Church receives a gift and a visitor’s card. We would appreciate it very much if you would fill out the visitor’s card with as much information as you feel comfortable giving. We would love to be able to send you a thank you note or email for attending. At no time will you be asked to introduce yourself or do anything that might be embarrassing.
