First-time Guest

We are so glad you have chosen to visit our web site and we welcome you to come worship with us in the near future.

When visiting a church for the welcome Holly 150X141first time it is natural to have several questions about what to expect. Hopefully the questions and answers below will help you feel more comfortable during your visit.

What should I wear? When you visit Emmanuel Baptist you will see men and women wearing jeans and t-shirts, suits and dresses and most anything in between. What you wear is not as important as you deciding to worship with us.

Where can I park? There is a large parking lot at the back and side of the church. It is easily assessed form both Florida Street and 7th Avenue. There is also a convenient KRT bus stop right at our front doors.

What door should we go to? While there are beautiful wooden doors at the front of the church on Washington Street that open into the front of the sanctuary, most people enter through the glass doors on the Florida Street and 7th Avenue side of the church. You are welcome to use either of these entrances.

Will there be anyone there that can answer my questions? As you enter the parking lot doors you will be greeted by a member of our welcoming ministry team. They are there to help you find your way around the church building and answer any questions you may have. They can be identified by their “greeter” badges.

Are there Sunday School Classes? Yes. There are many options for you to get involved with a Sunday School/Small Group on Sunday morning. There are classes for children through adults at 9:45 . Please ask a greeter about age appropriate classes and locations.

Is there something for my children to do? Yes. We have a Sunday School class for every age level at 9:45 We also have a nursery to care for your preschool children while you worship with us.

Are my children welcome in the worship service? Yes. We believe it is important for families to worship together. However, we also know that there are times when Mom and Dad just need to worship without the distraction of young children. That is why we also provide nursery services.
