What to Expect

Maybe you are returning to church, or coming to church for the very first time. Or, maybe you're an active church member who just moved to town and needs to find a new church home. Whatever your story may be, you probably have a few questions before you visit Cleveland First Baptist Church.

Here's our attempt to guess what's on your mind and answer your questions. If we've missed something, let us know! You're probably not the only one with that question, so asking us will help us help you and future guests.

What is your Sunday schedule?
Sunday worship services begin at 10:30 AM and 6:00 PM in the sanctuary where all generations worship together. We desire children to worship with their families and not separated from them. In short, we see the biblical model of worship as: Christ-exalting, gospel-centered, and family-integrated. Youth and college age students lead worship music. Childcare is provided.

Is there anything for my children?
Of course! We have Sunday options for newborns through high school seniors, including special times of worship designed just for the younger kids.

How will I find a Bible study?
On Sunday, stop by the Welcome Desk at the main entrance. Greeters can show you a listing of Sunday Bible studies, including a map of where each one is located. Believe us -- our goal is get every guest and member into a Sunday Bible study so we'll even take you to a class and introduce you.

What do I wear?
You'll see people in everything from khakis to suits on Sundays. Our concern isn't what's on the outside, but what's on the inside. Come as you are. Besides, Jesus accepts us as we are when we come to Him. Why shouldn't we?

Where do I park?
We set aside reserved parking for first time guests in our upper parking lot - adjacent to the Welcome Center entrance. General parking is available in both the upper, lower and back parking lots. Our parking attendants will gladly give you a ride on a golf cart from your car to the church door.

Your building looks pretty big. How will I find my way around?
Our Campus Maps are throughout the building with plenty of signage to help along the way. But the best way is to stop by the Welcome Desk at the main entrance. Our volunteer greeters would love to show you around.

In the church I grew up in, some people had "their" seats. What if I unknowingly sit in somebody's seat?
Don't worry about it. Sit wherever you want. Nobody has a claim on a seat. In fact, we'll even let you save seats for your family and friends!
