Location & Directions

We cannot wait to see you!


Our services and classes are open to everyone. We welcome you to join with us at any time. Also, we understand it might be a little daunting for those who have never attended a church service before or are unfamiliar with our style of worship. To make it easier, this page gives you some idea of what to expect.

What to expect on Sunday’s

 To begin with, you need to know where we are. On this page is a convenient map and driving directions. We are located directly in front of the County Courthouse. Our address is 200 West Pearl Street.

You may park in any available space in our parking lot or behind the church next to the water tower.  There is also parking along the street and spots for those with disabled parking placards on the east side of the building. An elevator is available at the East Entrance. Dress as casual or as formal as you like!  The restrooms are just down the hallway from the church office.

First Baptist is a friendly church. Be prepared to be warmly greeted and engaged in conversation. When you arrive at the door, you will be offered a worship bulletin with an outline of the service and activities for the week.  If you arrive late, just help yourself to a seat.  If you need to leave early, nobody will complain if you slip out. You may sit anywhere, no seats are reserved.   The service will include a mix of traditional hymns and contemporary worship choruses, soloists and choral music.  You are not expected to contribute to the work of the church (that’s our responsibility) so don’t feel embarrassed to pass the collection plate without putting anything in it.  Many church members contribute once a month, so you won’t be the only one just passing the plate on. The first Sunday of each month is “Communion Sunday.”  We invite all who have professed faith in Christ, regardless of their church affiliation, to participate with us if they like.  If you are unsure of the meaning of communion, feel free to ask the pastor, or the person who greeted you at the door and we will gladly explain it to you. Attendance sheets are passed between each pew row on Sundays.  Please tell us the names of all family members worshiping with us and pass the pad on so everyone has an opportunity to sign.  Brochures with information about our church are available at the back of the sanctuary.  

After the service you are invited to attend a Sunday School class.   These classes meet each Sunday at 10:45 am – 11:45 am. Also, don’t forget  to stop by the coffee area to grab a cup of coffee and a cookie before heading to class.
