How do I know God more?

At FBC Fulton,Sunday School and Corporate Worship are our primary areas for helping people to know God more.

Sunday School (Sunday mornings, 9:30 am)

Since we believe that the Bible(the 66 books of the Old and New Testaments) is the authoritative Word of God, we offer age graded small groups bible studies for every age and stage of life. Children, teenagers, young adults, Senior Adults, singles, married, and everything in between. We believe that people reach people and that believers grow and serve best in caring groups. 
 
These groups meet each Sunday morning and study the Bible together. They are relaxed environments where you can enjoy getting to know people in a smaller group setting. These classes often spend time together socially outside of Sunday mornings as well, because they have become friends! A Greeter will meet you when you arrive and help you find a class that fits what you are looking for. It’s just fine with us if you move around each week until you find a class that “fits”!
 

Corporate Worship (Sunday Mornings at  10:50 am & Evenings, 6pm)

A vital part of the pursuit of God’s glory is the worship of God. The worship of God is the only event that will last for all of eternity. God created the universe so that it would display the intrinsic worth of his glory. He created us so that we would see this glory and reflect it by knowing and loving it — with all our heart and soul and mind and strength. To do this, we must worship Him for who He is- the one and only God who exists as Father, Son, and Holy Spirit.
Corporate worship is the coming together of the church for the public and intentional celebration and enjoyment of God by His people. It is a public declaration that we, as God’s people, desire to have our soul’s satisfied and fulfilled by Him more than any other thing this world has to offer.


In order for our corporate gatherings to fulfill our purpose in these ways, 
the worship services of First Baptist Church will strive to be:

Intentionally Biblical
Intentionally Christ Centered
Intentionally Clear with the Gospel
Intentionally Instructive

And will Promote:
The Glory of the Triune God
A Spirit of Celebration and Thanksgiving of and for the Gospel
The Engaging of the Heart, Soul, Mind, and Strength
of each one present.


“What should I wear/ expect at an FBC worship service?”
At FBC, we worship together through the public reading and teaching of Scripture, prayer, giving, and music.What kind of music? At FBC you are just as likely to hear a modern worship song as you are a favorite hymn from years ago. Our focus is on content and purpose, not a certain “style”.

Speaking of style- wondering what to wear? We have people in jeans and t-shirts as well as suits, skirts/dresses, slacks- and everything in between. You wear what YOU are comfortable in. We know that God is much more concerned with the attitude of our heart that the fanciness of our clothes.

Our services begin at 10:50 (random, right?) and can run anywhere from 65 to 75 minutes, depending on what is going on that day. Our goal is not a pre-determined or arbitrary time frame, but rather to use the time necessary to hear, sing, pray, and respond to God’s Word for that service.
