New to First? Start Here!

We would love to connect with you here at First as we discover the truths of God, self, and life with Jesus Christ.

Here are some meaningful ways you can engage in the life of our community. If you have any questions, please contact us!

Sunday Mornings at First

Our Sunday worship service is at 9:30 a.m. and is held in the main auditorium. You can dress comfortably (casual attire is welcomed) and we’d love to connect with you afterwards at our Welcome Center or in one of our Adult Bible Connection/Sunday School Classes.

A typical worship service includes:

  • time singing together both hymns of our faith and newer expressions of worship to God
  • teaching of the Scriptures
  • prayer

At 11:00 am, we encourage you to join one of our Adult Bible Connections groups and Sunday School classes. These vary in topic and are focused around the teaching of the Scriptures and building relationships with other people. If you are new to First, the New Community class is a great place to begin. It meets in the gym on the main level of our facility.

Children's Ministry at First
We love to teach and spend time with kids! There are several opportunities for your kids to be safe, have fun, and learn about Jesus at First Baptist.

Check out our Children’s Ministries under the Ministries tab for more information.

If you have any questions, we are here to serve. Please contact us or call 616.772.4377.

Sunday Evenings at First
Our Sunday evening Discipleship Classes begin at 6pm and are designed for more specific teaching that varies depending on season.

Beginning September 14-November 16, we will be hosting a LAUNCH Class. LAUNCH is designed to help people identify their spiritual gifts and use them to impact our community with the Gospel. Launch will meet in the gym and is open to anyone 7th grade or older.
