What to Expect

At FBCPS you will discover a warm group of real people dedicated to following our Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ. From the moment you walk up to the building you can expect…

A Warm Greeting

A heartfelt greeting is part of what makes a church a church. No matter what question you might have just ask. Our greeters are there to help you get settled and comfortable.

Conversation

Expect to be noticed. Expect people to say something like, “Hi, we haven’t met before, is this your first time?”. Expect for people to reach out to you in love.

Worship

We love music, all kinds of music. From hymns to modern worship, we use music to show our Lord how much we love and honor Him.

Truth

The Bible tells us to speak the truth in love. The Bible is God’s truth. At FBCPS we seek to explore, understand and apply God’s truth to our lives at every level in a spirit of love. You will find a growing variety of resources to help you grow in God’s truth.


Here are some frequently asked questions:

Getting to the Church

First Baptist Church is located in the heart of historic downtown Powder Springs. 4330 North Avenue, Powder Springs GA 30127

Who Can Help?

When you arrive on campus, look for the people in blue shirts with the church logo on them. This is our greeter ministry. They are more than happy to help you find your way around campus and get you to where you need to be.

Where do I Park?

Many visitor parking spaces are located in the main parking lot, which, if you are facing the church, is to the left of it. Shuttle services are available if you park away from the sanctuary in the main parking lot. Shuttles run 15 minutes prior and 10 minutes after listed service times.

How Do I Dress?

Dress comfortably. While some attendees do wear their "Sunday best," most wear casual and comfortable clothes on Sunday morning. Don't worry about what you wear--just come prepared to have a wonderful time of worship in a relaxed atmosphere!

What do I Bring?

A Bible will help you to follow along in worship and in Connection Groups. If you have a Bible, bring it with you to church. Our Pastor, Mike Woods, will always refer to the Bible during his messages. If you don't have a Bible, or forgot to bring your Bible, Bibles are available in the Sanctuary pews.

When do I Need to Arrive?

There are two Sunday morning services at 9:15 am (contemporary worship), and 10:45 am (traditional worship). Connection Group hours are at 9:15, and 10:45 am. Plan to arrive fifteen minutes before your desired worship/Bible study time to allow for parking traffic.

Where do My Children Go?

First Baptist has excellent preschool and children's ministries. Greeters are just inside our entrances before every service and our "blue shirt" volunteers will assist you in getting your children to their class or department. Connection Group classes are offered for all ages. Your child will be checked-in by our staff in the Rutledge Building on the first floor. Our secure classrooms will require you to register before leaving your child with us and you will be assigned a pager so that you can be contacted while on our campus.
