First Baptist Church has always been known as a church family where all people can feel safe and welcome. Many people have told us it feels like being a part of a big family and we hope you will feel the same. We want you to know that wherever you are in your journey with God, we're here to walk with you.
As you may know, our church is involved in a building project to build brand new facilities on Harvest Avenue in Tillsonburg. This project will be unfolding over the coming season and we invite everyone to join us as we work toward new growth and ministry in the future. Please look below for information about our current locations for Sunday worship services and throughout the week at our FBC Ministry Centre.
We are excited to meet you this Sunday! Here is what you need to know in a few short points:
When and where does our church gather?
Every Sunday morning at 9:30am we gather to worship at the Lions Auditorium in the Tillsonburg Community Centre (45 Hardy Avenue). Our services will regularly be about 75 minutes long. This location has handicap parking and is fully accessible. As you enter the auditorium, speak to one of our greeters if you have any questions.
Will I fit in?
Our church works hard to make sure everyone has a warm welcome among us. Wherever you are in life, come as you are. We are here to get to know you and encourage what God is doing in your life. There is no dress code, so we encourage you to dress as you feel most comfortable.
What is the style of worship?
Our church is blessed to have many people who share their gifts in our worship ministry. Musically, our worship teams bring a blend of contemporary and classic songs to engage the whole church family in worshiping God; with a tasteful mix of vocals, piano, guitar and percussion.
In our preaching and teaching we strive to be firmly rooted in the Bible, engaging to the heart and mind while being applicable to everyday life.
What does FBC have for Kids?
If you have young kids we encourage you to make use of our Sunday School and nursery during the service. Nursery starts at the beginning of the service and Sunday School is dismissed 15 minutes into the service for older kids. Our greeters and Sunday School volunteers will be glad to help you and your family find your way around.
How can I connect during the week?
Our church offers a variety of Life Groups to keep us connected. Throughout the week you can call or drop by our FBC Ministry Centre at 169-B Broadway (Beside Coward Pharmacy). At the Centre you can connect with our staff, browse our church library, join with prayer and study groups and access information about our church. We are open Monday to Thursday from 9am to 3pm. Feel free to call us at (519) 842-8762 or stop by and check us out.
