Becoming a member of a church is a big decision, and we understand that.
We want to offer you as a guest or new church member the opportunity to hear all about us: what we believe, why we exist, and how we seek to exalt and glorify the Lord in all that we do. That's what Discover First is all about. During the class, you will find out just what church membership means and why it's so important for growing Christians to become a member of a local body of believers.
HOW LONG WILL DISCOVER FIRST LAST?
TYPICALLY, WE WILL MEET FROM 10:30-11:30AM, AND THEN PROVIDE A short BREAK FOR PARENTS TO GO PICK UP CHILDREN FROM SUNDAY SCHOOL. THEN WE provide LUNCH for you to enjoy while we finish ANY SECTIONS OF THE MATERIAL WE HAVEN’T COMPLETED AND ALSO ANSWER ANY QUESTIONS YOU MAY HAVE.
WHY should I ATTEND DISCOVER FIRST?
Discover First will help you gain a greater understanding of who First Baptist is and will also help you see how God might be strategically placing you here to serve Him and others in the church. Also, IT IS iN KEEPING WITH OUR MEMBERSHIP POLICY THAT all new members SHOULD attend A DISCOVER FIRST session AS a PART OF THEIR PROCESS OF JOINING THE CHURCH.
DO MY KIDS ATTEND discover first WITH ME?
Children and teens will be able to go to a Sunday School
class for their age or grade while their parents are in Discover First.
I CAN’T MAKE IT to Discover First on that date. IS THERE ANOTHER session COMING UP soon?
Absolutely! We plan to offer another Discover First class in the
next 6-8 weeks.
someone i know (a FRIEND or FAMILY MEMBER) IS THINKING
ABOUT JOINING FBC also. CAN THEY COME TO DISCOVER FIRST WITH ME?
Of course! Discover First is open to any adults who have joined the church or are considering how God might be leading them to become a member here.
