It would be our privilege to have you visit First Baptist Church of Saks. To make you feel welcome, we have designated greeters to assist you as you enter the church. They do not intend to single you out during the service and put you on display. They simply want to answer any questions you may have and direct you to where you need to go. We want your first experience at our church to be a special one, and will work to make you feel comfortable and welcome.
Where Do I Park?
We have reserved parking spaces for first-time guests in front of the sanctuary, though you are free to park anywhere on church grounds. We have a courtesy golf cart to assist those in need of a lift. If you have a disability just pull up under the office entrance and someone will assist you. We also have guest wheelchairs available. We will make sure you get to where you need to go with as little discomfort as possible.

What About Security?
For your safety, security personnel are assigned to posts throughout our buildings and on the grounds. We also have guards assigned to the children and nursery areas.
What Do I Wear?
God accepts you as you are and so do we. From your Sunday best to your blue jeans, you are welcome in here.
Do I Need to Bring a Bible?
Feel free to bring your own bible, or use one provide on the backs of each pew.
What Should I Expect During the Worship Service?
The Sunday morning worship service begins at 10:00 AM. A full choir and orchestra lead the congregation in music and praise. Our Pastor calls the church to a special time of prayer and makes announcements. Special music prepares our hearts for the preaching of God’s Word. Our services are joyful, celebratory, and Jesus Christ-centered. Most services last 1-1.5 hours. For a preview of the blessings you'll receive, visit our Multimedia library where podcast, audio sermon's, and FBC special singer's are available.
What Services are Provided for Children?
During all of our services, secured childcare is provided for ages ranging from newborns to sixth graders. Our loving and caring nursery staff would love the opportunity to care for your child while you attend Sunday school and the worship service. Before the morning worship service, we have age group specific Sunday School classes. The greeters in foyers will take you and your children to the appropriate classrooms. We also offer Worship Kidstyle Children's Church for grades 1-6, His Kids Preschool age 4-5 and Nursery- 3 years old. A hostess in the sanctuary can escort your child to His Kids at the beginning of the worship service. Worship Kidstyle Kids sit down for call to worship. They leave during fellowship time. You can just take your child down front to one of the Children's Ministry workers who is sitting with the Kids.
Best Time To Arrive
Plan to arrive about 10 to 15 minutes before the beginning of Sunday school or the worship service to give yourself ample time to get parked and escorted to the appropriate location. We look forward to meeting you!
