What to Expect

WHAT TO EXPECT: Visiting a place for the first time can be scary. Having an idea of what to expect can help. Every Sunday we have Sunday School followed by worship services with music and the teaching of the Bible. In each of these, it’s all about Jesus. Some of us are just checking out Christianity for our first time, while others have been in church their whole lives, and all are welcome. We are a safe place where you can be you; where you can admit your struggles and failures, where you can come and find and expect to find help and truly experience God. We are all on a journey together to love God and our community!


WHEN SHOULD I COME? We recommend that your first visit be at our 10:45 AM Worship Service.


WHAT SHOULD I WEAR? Clothes. That’s our only request! We don’t have a dress code. You’re welcomed to attend in everyday clothes, or if you like to get dressed up in a business casual, that’s fine to. Simply put, we believe worship is about the heart and God’s grace and love for the individual, not their brand of clothing. We are more concerned about the inside of a person, rather than the outside.


WHO CAN COME? Everyone! We embrace all ethnicities, ages, and backgrounds.


NURSERY: Nursery is available during the service for newborns through toddlers. Our nursery is clean, attractive, secure and staffed by trustworthy, cheerful volunteers.


CHILDREN IN THE SERVICE: Children of any age are welcome in the services. Jesus said “do not forbid them” so anyone who comes to our church can expect to see children in worship. Likewise, you should not feel embarrassed about a reasonable amount of noise from your own children. If you need to, though, you can take your child to the foyer. We have windows so anyone can continue to hear and see the service. We love having kids in our service. It means the church is alive and growing!


WILL I BE BORED? We hope not! A life connected to Jesus should be exhilarating, challenging, and rewarding. We plan our worship services to help connect you to God, to love Him in mind, body, and soul, with such a passion that it will overflow to those around you.


WHAT IS THE ENVIRONMENT LIKE? We are a friendly church. We believe the church should be a place of joy, reflecting who God is and caring for one another because He cares for us.


PREACHING? We unapologetically preach Jesus. And we preach directly and practically from the Bible because the Bible is all about Jesus. The message is relevant for today and the issues we face.


WILL I BE SINGLED OUT? You will not have to say anything, sign anything, give anything, or be singled out in any way. We will not make you wear a visitor badge or stand up so that everyone can see you. We would like you to fill out a communication card so that we can assist you in your visit at Spruce Creek Baptist Church. This information is only shared with our Pastor.


If I am not a member can I still attend? Yes! You can participate in many aspects of the body life of the church, but you will not be allowed to be in leadership. There are many special blessings found in church membership, and it is what God wants for His children. We encourage you to come for a few weeks, see and hear what God is doing.
