Information for our Guests

Dear Visitors,

We are so happy that you are looking at this page.  That means you are thinking about visiting our church.  We are a family type church whose interest is to be available to you.  Join us to study God’s Word and see how much the Lord loves you. You will find that the church members are loving and kind. 

 

Where do I park to enter the church?

If you are facing the main entrance of the church, please park on the west side.  The door on the west side has wheel chair and handicap access or, if you choose, you may go up the steps and enter through the main gates.

 

What time does the Sunday morning service start?

Church starts at 11:00 a.m. on Sunday morning.  Children sit with their parents for the music portion of the service.  Then, just before the pastor starts to preach, he will announce that it is time for the children to follow the leaders to Children’s church for grades K5 through 5th grade. You can pick your child up in the back after the Worship service.  If you want to keep your children with you during the service, that is perfectly fine. We also have a nursery available during our Worship service.

 

What time does the Sunday morning church service end?

The church service usually ends between 12:00 and 12:15.  Sometimes the service goes a little bit longer.

 

What type of singing happens at Flomich Baptist?

Flomich Baptist has a choir that sings a special each week and we sing a few traditional hymns that are from the hymnbook.  We also sing a contemporary or praise type song from the screen during the service.

 

Do I have to stand long?

No.  We have several members who need to sit for various reasons and that is fine.  We do have a time when members stand which gives them time to stretch their legs and greet others, but there are members who sit rather than stand up. The most important thing about going to church is to allow the Lord to talk to you and learn more about God’s Word.

Why should I go to church?

In this day and age, people seek direction.  The Bible can be difficult to understand, at times.  However, when Pastor Webb preaches, he follows the Lord’s guidance and makes Scripture come to life as clearly as possible. In fact, if you need to ask questions, Pastor Webb is available to talk to individuals. He truly desires that everyone accepts Jesus as his personal Savior and understands God’s love for us.  Pastor Webb wants to help everyone find answers from Scripture, no matter how small or large. Just call the office and schedule an appointment.

 

What type of classes do you have for Sunday school?

We also encourage you to attend Sunday school because you will get a chance to meet individuals and interact with others.  Sunday school starts at 9:45 and ends at 10:45.  The fifteen minutes between church and Sunday school gives you enough time to visit or go to the restroom. We have two adult classes from which to choose.  One is a senior ladies class and the other class is a co-ed class for adults of all ages. This is a time when you will learn straight from the Word of God, one verse at a time. This is also a time to ask questions concerning God’s Word.  There is also a youth class for 6th grade through 12th grade students. We also have children classes for K-5 through 5th grade students. You do not have to attend Sunday school to attend church, but you will find Sunday school a good time of fellowship with others and the best opportunity to get answers to your questions.

 

Do you have any special events?

The Sunday school senior ladies class meets once a month for Saturday breakfast and once a month for an evening of fun activity and or supper.  The mixed adult class also has times to meet together.  The youth group meets once a month for Friday night games and or movies. At times there are church wide events such as Vacation Bible School, picnic in the park, ocean side preaching and or baptisms, dinner on the ground, Thanksgiving lunch, Christmas Cantata, community wide block party, and more.

 

What do you believe?

We have a separate page on this website that details specifics.  The great news is that everyone who believes that Jesus died for our sins, asks for God’s forgiveness, and believes that Jesus rose again to take away our sins can be saved. After we are saved, we will want to follow God’s Word and learn from God’s Word.  The Bible clearly states, “For by grace are ye saved through faith; and that not of yourselves: it is the gift of God: not of works, lest any man should boast.” Ephesians 2:8-9.  It is not by doing “good” that lets us be saved, it is a gift from God.  We just have to have faith in the Lord Jesus Christ.

We believe baptism does not save us, but it is a way to show others that we want to serve him.  It is after salvation that we can decide to take that stand for Christ.  If you would like to be baptized, please talk to Pastor Webb. Baptism at Flomich Baptist church is by immersion.  We have a baptismal pool located in the front of the church.

 

Do I have to be a member of the church to attend?

No, you never have to join the church.  However, if you have accepted Christ and want to be a member, you can become a member by one of two methods.  You can join by transferring your membership from another Christ-believing church.  You can become a member by professing your faith in the Lord Jesus Christ. At the end of every service, one may go to the front of the church and privately talk to the pastor to ask to become a member.  If you do not want to go forward during a church service, Pastor Webb would be glad to talk to you.  Just give the church a call and tell the secretary that you would like to talk to the pastor.  The church office is open on Tuesdays, but other times are also available.

 

Who is allowed to join in communion?

Communion is for all Christians, whether a member or not, who have accepted Jesus Christ as their personal Savior.  The ushers pass the individual pieces of communion bread in a communion plate. Please hold onto the bread until the pastor says to “take and eat” the communion bread.  The ushers will also pass the individual communion cups, which contain grape juice.  Once again, the pastor will announce when it is time to “drink from the cup.”  Communion takes place once a quarter at Flomich Baptist Church.  The communion time is a quiet time for us to reflect on the sacrifice that God’s Son gave for us to have eternal life.  The bread represents His life and the communion cup represents the blood Christ sacrificed so that our sins would be washed away.  If you are not a Christian, or if you are not comfortable with taking communion because you are visiting, feel free to just pass the communion cup and communion bread to the next person. However, we certainly want you to know that we are an open communion church for those who are Christians.
