What to expect when you visit...
Attending a new church for the first time can feel a bit awkward, especially if you don’t know what to expect. When you walk into Fleetwood Bible Church, we want you to feel at home. If you choose to be our guest on a Sunday morning, here are a few things you may find helpful to know before you come.
When you enter the building, you will be greeted by one of our First Impressions Team members. They can direct you to where you want to go. The first desk ahead of you is the Guest Services counter. That attendant can assist you as well, answer questions and provide information. There's a first time visitor gift waiting for you there, too. Be sure to stop by and say "Hello" we want to give you a proper welcome. You could go anywhere but you have gone out of your way to visit us and that's a big deal!
Our 8:00 am service is "traditionally" styled with organ and hymn music, the 10:30 am service is "Contemporary" styled with rock-band style music and the 6:00 pm (Masks Required) Service is instrumental music. All services hear the same sermon that day, usually with a few twists.
Children are welcome to stay with you in the service if you would like or they can participate in fbcKIDS Worship in a separate area during the sermon (morning services only). fbcKIDS Worship is geared to 4 years old through 4th grade. If you are a first time guest, you will want to escort your child to the KidsWorship area to meet the leader and know where you need to pick them up after the service ends. Parents of babies and toddlers can use the nursery (currently unstaffed) to allow children to play while watching the service stream. Feel free to use the facilities (diaper changing, nursing mothers room, toys, etc...) provided for your convenience.
There is no dress code. We are casual. Be comfortable but also, be modest, please.
We are not currently collecting offering (during Covid). Our congregation gives their offering either online or drops it in the box on the wall in the back of the sanctuary. You are our guest. No money is needed!
We are currently not requiring masks in the building during our morning services. We ask everyone in attendance to practice safe distancing habits and use the hand sanitizer provided to minimize transmission of all illnesses. There are certain sections in the rear of the sanctuary where people remain masked. Those areas are clearly marked. We also have a separate live stream in the Fellowship Hall that can be utilized for contactless entry.
We are looking forward to meeting you in person. Hopefully you have already checked out our service online and have a feel for what we are all about. If you have additional questions before you come or want to give us a heads-up that you will be visiting, send us a message through the contact card below and we'll follow up.
