Visiting Smyrna Baptist Church
Visiting any church for the very first time can be a tough experience. Well, we want to put you at ease. Your first visit to SBC will be refreshing, friendly, and enjoyable for your whole family. We want you to experience inspiring music, helpful teaching and preaching, friendly people, and a place where you feel welcome and "at home"! Here are a few answers to your questions and what you might expect on your first visit.
When are your services?
Our main worship service is on Sunday morning at 11:00. Prior to our Sunday morning service, we offer an Adult Bible Class as well as children's Sunday School at 9:45. We also have a Sunday Evening Service at 6:00 pm as well as a Wednesday Bible Study at 7 pm.
Children & Teens
Where do I take my children?
Starting with excellent nurseries, there is something special for every age child. At every service there are safe, clean, and highly staffed nurseries for children three years old and under. For children four years old through sixth grade there are fun, friendly, and Bible-centered classes. These classes are staffed with trained, friendly, and well-qualified teachers and helpers who will make church exciting and memorable for your child.
On Wednesday Nights, we have our Patch the Pirate Kids Club at 7 pm. Parents can drop their kids off at our education building and enjoy a Bible Study in the main auditorium at the same time.
What about my teens?
The teens attend a Bible class just for them before the main worship service. There are monthly activities planned for the teens as well including a Christian Camp in the summer.
How Should I Dress?
There is not a dress code at Smyrna Baptist Church for members or guests. Our ministry leaders dress in more traditional “Sunday” dress; however, our main goal is that you would feel welcome and comfortable on your visit here at Smyrna Baptist. Many of our regular attendees dress more casual while some dress up. It's really up to you.
Am I Expected to Participate in the Offering?
No. We don't invite you to Smyrna Baptist Church for your offering. We want our service to be a gift to you. We hope you will find in this place a warm family spirit, truth from God's Word, and a place where you can grow in God's grace. Please don't feel any obligation to participate in the offering as a guest.
