What do I wear?

Where do I park?
We offer a limited number of reserved, up-close parking spaces for first time guests.
Guests with preschoolers and school age children should park on the Baltimore Avenue side of the facilities (near the yellow awning) for the most direct access to our children’s area.

If you park on the Baltimore Avenue side of the church, you will enter near the Educational Building and Senior Adult Suite. Handicap parking and wheelchair accessibility are on this side of the building. The Worship Center is located near the East Main Street side. On Sundays, Greeters are located near all entrances, and they will be happy to assist you.

We have two welcome desks on the main floor of our facility. Greeters will be stationed there to assist you further.
What style of music is used in your Worship Services? 
Our 10:15am service features a mix of modern worship songs and hymns.
How long is the service?
Our services are approximately one hour and 15 minutes in length.

What will my children do while I’m in the Worship Service?
Children are important to First Baptist! While mom and dad attend the Worship Service and Sunday School, the kids will be in special programs designed just for them with caring teachers who want to show them Jesus’ love.

A nursery is available for preschoolers during all services. Babies through sixth grade will enjoy their own Sunday School class during the 9:00am hour. Children’s Church is available at the 10:15 a.m. service for children 2 years through Kindergarten. Children in 1st grade and up attend the Worship Service with their parents.

First Baptist Student Ministry provides youth in grades 7-12 with the fun-filled fellowship and discipleship they need as they grow in their relationships with God and others. In addition to Sunday morning Bible study, the Student Ministry offers activities on Wednesday evenings as well as special events and camps throughout the year.

When you arrive at Albertville FBC, our Greeters will be happy to help you locate the appropriate classes and activities for your children and students.

Where do I sit?
You can sit wherever you feel comfortable in our Worship Center, from the front row to the back row. If you have difficulty locating a seat, our ushers are available to assist you.

What version of the Bible do you use? 
We accept all versions of the Bible that hold true to God’s Word.  Our pastor typically preaches from the ESV (English Standard Version).
How do I get involved in small groups?
Through First Baptist Sunday School Small Groups, you can get involved in a small group of believers who are at the same age and stage of life as you. You’ll enjoy fellowship, encouragement, and build relationships that will last for eternity.

Sunday School groups meet at 9:00 a.m. on Sundays. For help finding the class that fits you just right, visit our Welcome Center. Come get connected through Small Groups.
