Service times, directions, and what to expect upon your first visit to First Baptist Church
We know meeting someone for the first time can be intimidating, and going to a new church for the first time can be nerve-racking. We want to help make your first experience at First Baptist Church a great one!
First Baptist Church meets every Sunday and Wednesday at the same location:
All First Baptist services and activities meet at 205 S Church Avenue, Louisville, MS 39339
In total, a First Baptist Church service is about 60 minutes in length. Services begin with the First Baptist Church band leading the church in music - song lyrics are projected onto the screens so you can sing along and/or engage with worship however you feel most comfortable. After the music portion of service is complete, our pastor will lead us into God's word and share an encouraging and hope-filled message about Jesus.
We are a multigenerational church so the culture is a blend of all of our personalities, similar to what you see in large families. As far as what to wear, come as you are and expect to feel welcomed as our guest. Some will where suits, ties and dresses while others will be much more casual wearing open collard shirts and jeans. Our goal is to make you feel like part of the family from the moment you step onto our campus.
When you arrive, come through the portico. If you arrive for Sunday school, a greeter will direct you to the appropriate class for you and your family. If you arrive for worship follow the signs to the worship center (sanctuary) or just ask somebody for directions. As you enter the worship center you will be greeted and given a worship guide that details what the service will look like once it begins. Once you are seated there will be a Connection Card in the pew rack in front of you. We encourage you to fill that card out and simply leave it on the pew where you are seated. Our team will collect those at the end of the service.
For guest with children, a greeter can direct you to the class that is appropriate for your child. Once in the classroom, you will get to meet your child's teachers and see the safe environment that we provide. Additionally after the singing portion of our service, children are invited to go to Children's Church. At Children's Church, the children will have a tailored lesson to better help them understand the truths of scripture. We believe that kids should have a blast at church every single week - and our children's ministry team makes sure that happens.

"As soon as we moved to Louisville, we began to seek a church home. The staff and members of First Baptist Church welcomed us with open arms. First Baptist is friendly and the church body demonstrates the fruit of the Spirit. My daughter immediately got involved in the youth ministry and my son was baptized soon after we joined. I will forever be grateful to the staff and members that have poured into my family."
