What To Expect



Whether you are a first time church attendee, or you have been going to church all your life, we want to give you a quick idea of what to expect and what to do on your first day at First Baptist Whitesboro. Here are the answers to some common questions you might have.

What is the Sunday Schedule?

Our Contemporary Service starts at 8:30am in the worship center. Bible Study begins at 9:45am. Adult Bible Study classes are grouped by stage of life, from Young Married Couples to Retired.  Our Traditional Service starts at 11:00am in the Worship Center and our Senior Pastor Mike Flanagan brings a relevant and inspiring message in both of our services.

What do I wear?

You will see people in everything from suits to jeans on Sundays. Our concern is not what's on the outside, but what's on the inside. Come as you are. Jesus accepts people as they are when they come to Him. Why shouldn't we?


Where do I park?

 We set aside reserved parking for guests in the parking lot in front on Wainwright St.


Is there anything for my children?

 Of course! We have Bible Study for newborns through high school seniors. During the Worship Service there is also Nursery and Children's Church for Birth-Kindergarten.


How will I find a Bible Study group?

On Sunday, stop by the Guest check in desk in the Nursery. We would love to help you find an adult class that fits you. We will even walk you to your class and introduce you to the teacher and some of the class members. Our goal is to get every guest and member into a Sunday Bible study so we'll go out of our way to help you get connected!


Your buildings are spread out. How will I find my way around?

The best way is to stop by the Nursery at the Guest Welcome desk. We will be happy to get you and your family registered for Bible Study. We will even walk you to your class or any destination.


Where do I sit?

In the church I grew up in, some people had "their" seats. What if I unknowingly sit in someone's seat?  Don't worry about it. Sit wherever you want. Nobody has a claim on a seat. We are just glad you are our guest.
