Sundays 8:30 am-Traditional Worship

Sundays 9:45 am-Contemporary Worship

Sundays 11:00 am-Traditional Worship

Wednesdays 6:00 pm -Traditional Worship and Prayer Service

The Sunday 9:45 am service is located in the Family Life Center. The style of music is more contemporary, utilizing drums, guitars, and many modern songs you might know from Christian radio.

The Sunday 8:30 am and 11:00 am services are held in the sanctuary (located under the steeple). These services are more traditional in their style of music. There is a choir, and hymns are sung by the congregation.

We do not have a dress code. We welcome all peoples, cultures, and backgrounds. Some attendees dress formally (suits and ties), while others are more relaxed (blue jeans). Many will be dressed somewhere in-between. Dress in a way you will feel comfortable, and please do not feel pressured to dress a certain way. We only ask that you dress modestly.

You will enter the parking lot from one of three possible entrances-6th Avenue S., 2nd Avenue S., or turning directly off of Highway 17. Parking spaces are found all around the facility. If attending the 9:45 service, it will be a closer walk if you park in the rear and enter through the double glass doors. Wheelchair accessible ramps are found here: https://www.fbcnmb.com/wheelchair-accessible-entrances/ .

Each service will last about one hour. The messages are based on a biblical text. The version of the Bible the pastor uses is the New American Standard. You may use any translation you would like (although it is not mandatory to have a Bible with you), and if you prefer, you may read the Bible from an App on an electronic device.

You will not be singled out. You will not be called on to read or to pray. We ask visitors to fill out a card, but this is not mandatory. It is a great way for us to get to know you and we would be grateful to have a record of your visit. These cards are located on the back of each pew and entrance tables and may be placed in the offering plate when it is passed.

At the end of the service there will be an invitation. This is a time when listeners are invited to respond to the message by believing what God has revealed and committing to follow God’s leadership. As an act of surrender to God, some attendees like to kneel at the front of the church and pray. Others like for the pastor to pray with them. Coming forward is not necessary, and no one will pressure you to leave your seat.

The message will be centered on the gospel. The word “gospel” means Good News! It is the news about how to be in a right relationship with God. This happens when one turns by faith to Jesus for salvation.  Jesus is the Son of God who is perfect in every way. Because of sin, there is a separation between God and man. Jesus died on the cross to pay for sin’s debt and to satisfy the wrath of God. He then arose on the third day. When one trusts in Jesus, God applies Jesus payment to that persons account, making the way to be at peace with God.

There are often non-Christians who attend the services. Occasionally, as the good news about Jesus is shared, the gospel message will impact one in such a way that he or she may want to become a Christian. At the time of invitation, anyone desiring to trust in Jesus for salvation who feels the need for guidance is encouraged to respond by coming to the pastor.
