We are delighted to have visitors in any of our services. We want you to feel like an honored guest. Here are a few common questions and answers about visiting First Baptist Church in Galena that will help you enjoy your first visit:
Will the roof fall in?
Absolutely not. In fact, several visitors said this was going to happen when they came, but we are happy to report that the roof is still standing strong! If you are still concerned about this happening, just call ahead to warn us so we can clear out the building before you enter!
What should I wear?
This is probably the most common question. We want you to feel welcome. A specific attire is not required, and our members wear a variety of styles of clothing. We think it makes sense to wear nice, clean, modest clothing to church. As long as you do that you will not feel out of place.
Do you have a nursery?
Yes. Nursery is provided during all services for children under 3 years of age.
What are your services like?
Our services are what is commonly called “blended.” The worship music is a good combination of great hymns of the faith as well as some praise choruses. The focus of all of our meetings is the Word of God. Generally, we will have several hymns, prayer, an offering, and then a message from the Bible.
Do visitors have to stand up and say anything?
No, you sure don’t. We will give you a visitor’s card and ask you to drop it in the offering plate so we can have a record of your visit. We want you to feel welcome and will not single you out or embarass you in any way.
