Join us for worship!
We have two worship services at Second Baptist. Both services usually last between 60-90 minutes. These services might be a little bit longer than some church services, but we do our best to make this a time of meaningful worship. Nursery services are provided during this time for parents who wish to use them, but children are also welcome in the services. See the details below about the differences between the services.
Our contemporary service meets at 8 am in our multi-purpose room and offers a contemporary format that is different week to week. This allows the service to incorporate many different aspects into the worship service. Most Sundays include a time of singing worship songs, prayer, and hearing a message from the pastor. There may also be a time of testimony where people are invited to share something God is doing in their life (don’t worry – you don’t have to if you are uncomfortable). There have also been times where people have been invited to write their own psalms and prayers during worship. This service seeks to remove any distractions during music by dimming the lights so worshippers can concentrate solely on singing to God. This is a relaxed environment and most people dress casually, but if you like to dress up, feel free!
Our traditional service meets at 11 am in the sanctuary and offers a traditional format that is similar week to week. The music includes both hymns and contemporary songs and special music by individuals and/or the choir. There are also times of prayer and a message from the pastor. There will typically be a few people dressed up and many people dressed casually in this service, so come dressed however you feel comfortable.
