What To Expect
At Pioneer Baptist Church, we recognize that attending any church for the first time can be a frightening experience. The many questions that you have deserve answers. We’d like to answer as many of those as possible before you arrive, so that you may be as knowledgable as possible when you attend. If you have additional questions when you arrive, we have a friendly group of greeters and ushers ready to assist you.
Thank you for your interest in Pioneer Baptist Church, we look forward to meeting you soon.
- • What time do I need to arrive?
Our Sunday morning worship service begins promptly at 11:00am. In order to be seated comfortably, as well as give an opportunity for many of us who would like to meet you time to do so, we’d suggest you arrive 10-15 minutes prior to the service. In addition to our morning worship, we also have small group Bible studies for all ages beginning at 10:00am on Sunday morning. Our Sunday evening service begins at 6:00pm. And we have a Wednesday evening service beginning at 6:30.
- • Where do I park and enter?
We have several parking spots reserved especially for you very close to the front door. If you have young children, you may prefer to enter through the side door to the right of the front doors. This will allow you easy access to our nursery.
- • What does PBC provide in the way of childcare?
We are dedicated to ensuring that your little ones have a safe, fun, and meaningful experience when they come with you to worship. To that end, we provide a free nursery ministry staffed with trained, qualified, and screened nursery workers during each Sunday morning service. This ministry is available to any child 3 years of age or younger. Of course, children are always welcome to remain with their parents in the worship service. On Sunday evenings we have our AWANA program for children ages 2 years-6th grade. It runs from 5:45-7:00pm. See the AWANA page on this website for more information.
- • What should I expect once worship begins?
On any given Sunday at PBC, you will find a multi-ethnic, multi-generational congregation of 80-100 believers who meet to worship the living God. Our worship is centered around the Bible which guides our singing, praying, giving, and preaching. We define our singing by content, and not by style. We sing old, familiar hymns of the faith as well as new songs of praise. We are dedicated to proclaiming the good news of the death and resurrection of Jesus Christ as the focus of all we do. Each week, one of our pastors will open God’s Word and carefully explain it and apply it to our lives.
- • Does it matter what kind of Bible I bring?
Absolutely not. Our pastors normally use the English Standard Version in thier preaching, but many in our congregation use other translations. Just bring whatever you have.
- • I have plans Sunday afternoon, what time can I expect worship to be over?
Almost witout exception, our services conclude between 12:05-12:15.
