Our Church

Welcome!

Whether you are brand new to the “church thing” or you’ve been around church for a while, we want to say welcome. Our goal during worship services at First Baptist Church is to create space for you to encounter God:  by being part of the community, by singing, by praying, by reading Scripture together & by exploring its meaning for our life today.

We also hope to provide opportunities for you to go deeper in the exploration of Scripture, to know one another through times of fellowship, and to find ways to match your gifts with ways to serve in our faith community & the greater Lafayette community.

Be The Church

We're simply a church that focuses on building a relationship with God, loving all people, and serving the local and global community. Visitors and members alike will find acceptance, connection, and purpose within our church family.
Being the church means helping one another.

Our History

Brief history goes here

Attire

Our environment is casual and we simply want you to come as you are. Some dress up in their "Sunday best" and others come in jeans and a t-shirt. We simply want our guests to feel comfortable and welcomed.
Our Youngest Worshippers

Children

We love having children as part of the life of our community of faith, and we are working on creating more opportunities for your children to learn about the Bible, about worship, about being part of the faith community, about serving others, and about music.

During the worship hour, children in kindergarten and younger are invited to stay in the nursery, where they will be watched by experienced childcare professionals. (But of course, they are also welcome to be part of worship in the sanctuary- it's the parent's choice!) Beginning with Sundays in December 2018, there will be a special children's message early in the service. All children are invited to come to the front pew to learn with Pastor Lisa. (and then these youngest worshippers will be escorted to the nursery immediately following this time in the service each week.)

The nursery is located right off the entrance closest to the parking lot. Please sign your children in and out each Sunday. Children's Sunday School follows the worship hour, coinciding with the adult Sunday School hour.

Children in first grade and older are invited to join us in the sanctuary for worship as they learn the basics to be life-long worshippers. There are worship bags available to borrow in the pews closest to the doors, and beginning with Sundays in December 2018, there will be a special children's message early in the service. All children are invited to come to the front pew to learn with Pastor Lisa, and then return to their seats.
