What To Expect

WHEN TO ARRIVE:

We have several oppurtunities for you to worshoip with us. Our Sunday School groups begin meeting at 9:00 and is followed by our morning worship at 10:00. Upon your arrival, friendly greeters will meet you at the door.  They can direct you to the Sunday School classrooms, the nursery, or the sanctuary. Be sure to join us for our midweek services on Wednesday's at 6:30pm for small group Bible studies and Life Groups for all ages.

WHAT TO WEAR:

We encourage our congregation to wear what they feel mostcomfortable in! You will see our members wearing jeans and a t-shirt, polos, or suits and dresses. You choose what best suits you and you will fit in just fine.  We believe that God is more concerned about your heart than your attire.

WHAT ARE SERVICES LIKE:

Our church family is comprised of young and old with a mixture of backgrounds. Worship services are a joyful time when we sing both old hymns and modern praise and worship music.  Pastor Marvin preaches biblically-based messages that are applicable to life in the days we are living.  At the end of each service, the congregation is invited to respond to the message, to accept Christ as Savior, to make a spiritual decision, or simply to pray.

DO YOU HAVE CHILDREN'S CHURCH:

Yes, we have Children’s Church which takes place during part of our Worship service. It is for children 3 years of age up to 2nd grade. Our philosophy is to ready our children for “Big church” by allowing them to attend a service geared just for them.  If you choose for your children to attend Children’s Church, they will start out worshiping in the sanctuary with you, and will leave as a group at the designated time to go to their own service. This ministry is, of course, optional. If you want your children to stay in worship with you as a family, feel free!

IS THERE CHILD CARE DURING SERVICES:

We provide childcare during all Sunday and Wednesday services for children 2 years and younger. All of our volunteers have clear background checks.

WHAT ABOUT OTHER DAYS:

Sunday is not the only day that things are happening at FBC Washington. We have mid-week services on Wednesday evenings. Starting at 5:30pm we have a meal as a church family. After our meal, Bible studies and Life Groups begin at 6:30 for all ages. Sunday evenings are another time that our Life Group meets, we would love to point you to a Life Group that fits with your schedule! There are several oppurtunities throughout the week to serve, be part of a small group, or get plugged in with the Men's, Women's, or Youth ministries. If you need help finding where you can be involved, just ask! We would love to help you find a place in our church where God can use you!
