What to expect at FBCL!

WHAT TO EXPECT

FBCL is a friendly and caring congregation that looks forward to the opportunity to welcome you as you visit.  We have many opportunities to connect, grow and worship, and we believe we can be an encouragement to you and your entire family.

Often attending a church for the first time can be nerve racking, so we want to put you at ease by describing what to expect when you visit us.

SUNDAY MORNING WORSHIP

We have two opportunities to worship Sunday mornings at 9:30 AM & 11 AM.  There’s one big difference – music style! Our early service incorporates a worship team and band with contemporary music, and our 11 AM service has a blended/traditional music style.  The sermon is the same at both service times, delivered by our Senior Pastor, Walt Kellcy.

WHAT SHOULD I WEAR?

We encourage you to come as you are at FBCL. In case you are wondering, you most often see business-casual attire. Don’t be caught off guard though when you see suits, dresses and jeans – these are worn each week as well.

WHAT ABOUT MY CHILDREN?

We currently have 12 Preschool classrooms, for ages birth through Kindergarten, with at least two workers per room. We have a security system in place, complete with a paging system for a little one that might be having a difficult time and needing mom.

Our Children’s department is 1st – 6th grade and rapidly growing! We offer Children’s Worship during the 11 AM hour as well as an option.

All of our children & preschool classes are offered during both services, as you decide which Worship service works best for your family’s needs.

WHAT IF I HAVE A BABY?

You are more than welcome to bring your infant into the worship service. Please know that we also offer a room for nursing mothers that is close to the sanctuary - completely set up to give you a quiet, private & comfortable atmosphere. It is located down our Preschool Hallway (PP1-A).

If you have a decided to keep your little one with you and find he/she is restless, you can always move to our “parent/child room” located at the back of the sanctuary. It is equipped with speakers, rockers and a view of the pulpit so you don’t miss a thing!

WHAT ABOUT MY TEEN?

Our Youth Department’s worship time is at 9:30 AM. This allows all ages to meet briefly as a large group and then into small groups for Sunday School at 11:00 AM.

WHERE DO I GO?

When you enter through our front doors, you will be greeted by a friendly face and handed a bulletin. Once you enter, to the immediate right is our Welcome Center. There you will find eager folks excited to show you around, provide you with small group information, help you find classrooms, and assist with getting your little ones situated.

WHAT IS EXPECTED OF VISITORS?

You are our guest. We will have a time of greeting, but you will not be put on the spot, called up front or singled out. We only ask that you take a Communication Card from inside your bulletin and fill it out. It will allow us to answer any questions you may have, as well as help us keep a record of your visit with us.

Additionally, when the offering plate is passed, please know -- this is for our members and regular church attenders. Placing your completed Communication Card in the offering plate as it comes around is all that we ask of you.

So please join us -- come ready to receive a Word from our Lord, bring your Bible if you have it (there is one in the pews, if not), and eagerly expect the Lord to meet you where you are.

WHAT ELSE HAPPENS ON SUNDAYS?

Sunday evenings, we offer Discipleship Classes. The times vary, starting from 5 PM – 7 PM, depending on the class, topic, discussion, etc. Childcare is provided for these classes.

In addition, we have a special time of prayer for the needs of our congregation, community, military and world, in the homes of our members, after the 6 PM service.

WHAT HAPPENS ON OTHER DAYS?

We have many activities throughout the week for you to plug into! Please check out our events page and the various ministry groups under our "connect" menu item, as some remain constant, while other opportunities are specific to the time of year.
We are confident, that whatever age group, we can be an encouragement to your whole family .

WHAT IF I STILL HAVE QUESTIONS?

How can I get more information? Can I meet the Pastor? What exactly does the church believe? Great questions! We offer a class bimonthly, called First Look, which is perfect for this. In this smaller setting, you will have the opportunity to meet our pastoral staff, to ask questions, as well find out what we do and why we do it, here at FBCL. We would love to have you!
