What to Expect
Services are traditional baptist in style with scripture readings, hymns, organ and piano, special music and a choir (11:00 only). Services include liturgical and creative elements. Our pastor preaches fifteen to twenty-minute biblically-based sermons and normally wears a suit. At the end of our services, we always offer an invitation to Christian discipleship and church membership. We have communion every two months, on Maundy Thursday, and Christmas Eve.
The presence of children in worship is to be celebrated. As Jesus said, “Let the little children come…” We know that means they will come with noises and wiggles and giggles and questions. We welcome ALL the things that come along with having children in worship.
For children who are staying in worship, we have worship bags with activities to help them stay engaged. We also offer children’s church for children age 4 (by August 1) through 2nd grade. Children who would like to participate in children’s church will follow Mrs. Jennifer after the children’s sermon to the children’s church room. For our youngest children, we offer a nursery for infants through age 3. If your little one is staying with you in the sanctuary and you need to feed or change them during worship, a changing table and nursing area is located off of the Dixie Street sanctuary entrance.
How to participate
We would love for you to join us in person for worship in our sanctuary. FBC is conveniently located in downtown Carrollton, just “off the square,” on the corner of Dixie Street and Newnan Street across from the Carroll County Courthouse.
The easiest place to for services is the BB&T building parking lot and deck. The BB&T lot provides convenient access to our sanctuary by way of the sidewalk along the Dixie Street side of the building. There is also a walkway between the BB&T building and Burns Hall that provides quick access to the nursery. Our parking lot outside Burns Hall at 111 South White Street also provides convenient access to sanctuary by way of the stairs and walkway near the Newnan Street end of the lot. You can reach the nursery from that lot by taking the walkway between our two playgrounds.
You can watch our services live on YouTube or StreamSpot or on demand any time via our YouTube channel. Prefer to listen instead? We broadcast live on Kiss 102.7 every Sunday at 11am and our sermons are published the following day as a podcast called Faith in 15 that you can listen to online, in most podcast apps, or via a smart speaker.
