What can I expect on my first visit?
We know how intimidating finding a new church home can be and visiting is a crucial part of that process. We want to provide as much information as possible to alleviate the pressure of not knowing what to expect by providing some answers to several frequently asked questions about our services as well as our other meetings. If you have any other questions please feel free to email our church office at email@example.com where we would love to assist you in any way that we can!
What time do services start?
Our Sunday morning services at Byron Baptist start at 10:30 a.m. and our Life Groups and Sunday School classes meet at 9:15 a.m. However, due to the Social Distancing practices in our church, our Life Groups and Sunday School classes are currently not meeting on Sunday morning. However, they are meeting “creatively” at different times and locations throughout the week. Contact the church office for more information.
Our Children's Ministry is back to their regular meetings on Wednesday as well as on Sunday during the service time! However, since our other Sunday School classes are not back to fully regular meetings on Sunday morning, there aren't any Children's Sunday School classes meeting on Sunday before the service. To learn more about the Children's Ministry at our church, go to their page under our "Ministries" tab for more information or contact the Children's Director.
Our Wednesday evening Prayer Services are currently at 6:30 p.m. in the sanctuary. Our Wednesday night Youth Services are also currently meeting at 6:30 p.m. inside the gymnasium. For more information about our Student Ministry, go to their page under our "Ministries" tab or contact the Associate Pastor of Worship and Families.
What are the services like?
Our Sunday morning Worship Services are currently setup to accommodate for Social Distancing practices. Besides that, our Sunday morning worship services are just as welcoming as they were pre-pandemic! Our worship team continues to lead us in worship and our Pastor continues to preach the word to its fullest. Services start at 10:30 a.m. and are typically finished around 11:45 a.m.
You can expect a blend of modern songs and hymns with Scripture readings from both Testaments and some (church-wide) “family” prayer time. You can also expect a Christ-centered, expository sermon.
What should I wear?
Many of our members love to get dressed up for church, whereas others would rather attend services in whatever is comfortable for them; be it jeans or shorts. We encourage all to come and attend worship in whatever is comfortable for them and on any given Sunday there will be a full spectrum of attire worn at our services.
What is available for my children/students?
Currently, due to Social Distancing practices, we are not hosting our Life Groups or Sunday School classes on Sunday mornings. Children's Services are available during the time of our main Worship Services on Sunday mornings and Wednesday evenings.
Nursery is available for ages birth-K3 at these times.
Students are currently meeting on Wednesday nights at 6:30 p.m. during the time of the Prayer Service in the gymnasium where our Associate Pastor has games and lessons for them every week. The student ministry serves students 6th grade-12th grade.
