What to Expect on Your First Visit
Planning Your First Visit
Visiting any church for the first time can be a tough experience. Where to go? What to wear? What time to show up? What’s here for my kids? What can I expect? These and many more questions can surface. Well, we want to put you at ease. Your first visit to Westridge Baptist Church, we believe will be refreshing, friendly, and enjoyable for your whole family. During the worship service and beyond, we want you to experience inspiring music, helpful relevant preaching and teaching, friendly people, and a place where you feel welcome and “at home”!
Here are a few answers to your questions and what you might expect on your first visit.
I’m Not a Baptist… Can I Still Attend?
It is our desire that Westridge Baptist Church would be a church for everyone who has a desire to have a relationship with God. You do not have to come from a Baptist background, or hold to any particular religious affiliation to attend services here. We are convinced that the Bible is the inspired Word of God and it is sufficient to point any sincere person to faith in Jesus Christ. If you have a desire to know God or already have a relationship with God desiring to experience His best in your life, we invite you to join us on the journey, for all of us are on a journey.
What’s here for my kids?
Starting with a great nursery, there is something special for every age child from birth through high school! At every service we offer safe, clean, and staffed nurseries for children four years old and under. For children four years old through 5th grade there are fun, friendly, and Bible-centered classes on Sunday morning, in addition to separate Sunday school classes for Junior High and High School.
We are an older congregation who is interested in reaching young families, to develop classes and ministries for all ages. We are seeking, praying and searching for mature believers who are interested in helping us to reach the “next generation.”
If you are interested, please talk to Pastor Jimmie. Requirements include being born again, baptized by immersion and willing to teach the Bible truthfully. You also must have a background check and the pass criminal background check. We believe that the first priority for our children is that they be protected, secure and safe at all times.
How should I dress?
There is NOT a dress code at Westridge for members or guests. Church is certainly not a fashion show and so you wear what is comfortable for you. Our ministry leaders tend to dress casually. Our main goal is that you would feel welcome and comfortable during your visit here. Our pastors wear causal dress……….
Am I expected to participate in the 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; however if you desire to contribute, you are welcome to do so.
