What to Expect
A typical service includes:
Worship Through Song
Our minister of music will lead several songs that we sing together as a congregation.
Worship Through Prayer
The pastor or members of the church will pray aloud as the rest of the church prays silently in agreement. Most people close their eyes to help stay focused and bow their heads in reverence for God.
Worship Through Hearing of the Word
The pastor will lead the church in reading from the Bible and will then teach and encourage the church on how to apply it to everyday life.
Tithes and Offerings
Ushers will receive members’ tithes and offerings, the portion of our earnings that we return to God. Guests should not feel obligated to give.
The pastor will invite those in attendance to respond to God and will be available to counsel and pray with individuals.
What Should I Wear?
First Baptist Church of Apache Junction is a place to come as you are. On any given Sunday you will see worshippers in jeans and t-shirts, as well as jackets and ties.
What Kind of Music Do You Have?
