What to expect on your first visit As a church our main goal is to please Christ in everything we do. As a result, every service is an opportunity for an inspiring time of worship. If you’re like most people, you may have questions as to what a service at Maranatha Baptist Church might be like. So what can you expect from a service at Maranatha Baptist Church?
What are the services like? All of our church services are considered traditional. The services begin with uplifting music, prayer, and a time of greeting, followed by a practical message from the Bible.
Do you have a children’s church service? Yes, we have a Beginner’s Church for children up to the fourth grade. After Sunday School, everyone will meet back in the auditorium for the beginning of the service. About 20 minutes into the service, our Beginner’s church is dismissed for their own service.
Do you have a nursery available? Yes, for children up through age 3. Just come in the front door and our ushers will direct you to the nursery area and introduce you to the nursery workers.
What should I wear? There is not a dress code at Maranatha 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 Maranatha Baptist.
Am I Expected to Participate in the Offering? No. We don’t invite you to Maranatha Baptist Church for your offering. We want our service to be a gift to you. 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. Please don’t feel any obligation to participate in the offering as a guest.
Will I be asked to do anything? Everyone who attends Maranatha Baptist Church receives a visitor’s card. We would appreciate it very much if you would fill out the visitor’s card with as much information as you feel comfortable giving. We would love to be able to send you a thank you note or email for attending. At no time will you be asked to introduce yourself or do anything that might be embarrassing.
