What to Expect
Visiting any church for the very first time can be intimidating, but we want to put you at ease. Your first visit to Spokane Baptist will be refreshing, friendly, and enjoyable for your whole family.
We want you to experience uplifting hymns, helpful teaching and preaching, friendly people, and a place where you feel welcome and "at home"!
Our day starts with Bible Study at 9:15am. We have classes for Adults and Children, you don't need to register ahead of time, we'd love to have you join us for some practical Bible teaching. The bible studies are over by 10:15 and then the main service begins at 10:30am.
In our main service, we sing traditional hymns, have a few announcements, and then focus of our service is solid Bible preaching. After the service, everyone is invited to stay for a wonderfully prepared lunch and some warm Christian fellowship. We have some small gifts we like to give our guests (a book and a coffee mug) - but we promise not to embarrass you. We give our guests these gifts with as little fanfare as possible.
On Wednesday evenings, we have a less formal service that we call "Connection Groups"
This begins at 7:00pm and we are done by 8:00pm.
We meet in the lunch area and sit around tables in small groups of about 8 or so. This might sound intimidating, but we believe you'll quickly feel very welcome in these small groups.
We sing a hymn, hear a short and practical devotional, and then have a sharing time around each table time focused specifically on encouraging and praying for each other.
The teens have a special Bible Study and game time, and the younger children have a program we call "Team 119" with a Bible lesson and games for them also.
Where do I take my children?
We love kids at Spokane Baptist and have programs for children of all ages at every service.
On Sundays, just stop by the Welcome Desk in the lobby on your way in, and we will be happy to assist you with determining where your children should go. We'll work with you to find the best fit for your kids - and of course they're always welcome to sit out in the main service with you!
For very young children, we have a nursery room and also a special "Comfort Room" located right off the sanctuary where moms can take their little ones for some extra privacy and comfort if they'd like. (The service is quietly streamed onto TVs in the Comfort Room and in the Nursery so you don't have to miss anything)
Please visit our Ministry page for additional information on Children's Ministry.
How should I dress?
There is not a dress code at Spokane Baptist Church for members or guests. Our ministry leaders and many of our church family dress in more traditional “Sunday” dress; however, our main goal is that you would feel welcome and comfortable on your visit here at Spokane Baptist!
What kind of music do you use?
At Spokane Baptist Church, we sing traditional hymns (usually with the piano or a guitar). This isn’t because we desire to be “old fashioned” or because we don’t enjoy other types of music. Rather, it is because we believe that the hymn style of music offers several unique and important benefits that add great value to our services and help us to closely follow the Bible’s instructions on using ‘spiritual songs.’ We believe the benefit of singing hymns is 1) They complement the preaching of the Bible, 2) They help to set the right tone for the service, 3) They help us switch gears from the common to more sacred matters, and 4) They tie generations of Christians together.
Am I expected to participate in the offering?
You might be surprised to find that at Spokane Baptist, we don’t actually pass an offering plate around like most churches. We want our service to be a gift to you!
We do have a small offering box located by the entrance to our sanctuary, but please don't feel any obligation to give.
We hope you will find in this place a warm family spirit, truth from God's Word, and a place where you can grow in God's grace… free of charge!
If there's something we missed on this list, just give us a call, or ask someone when you arrive. Whether you're new to the area and looking for a church home, or if it's been a long time since you've attended church at all, we hope your first visit at Spokane Baptist will be refreshing!
We’re eager to serve you and your family, and we are looking forward to meeting you personally. We hope you'll feel right at home from the very first moment you step through our doors. Let us know how we can serve you better, and we hope to meet you this Sunday!
