Worship at Greenwood First Baptist

Worship has always been important at Greenwood First Baptist. The common experience of worship is one of the major components in the identity of the church. It is also rather unique, particularly in Baptist life. In some ways the worship is very traditional, including Bible-based preaching and well-loved Baptist hymns. In some ways the worship is very liturgical, including the architecture of the sanctuary, following theSanctuary 013 liturgical seasons, and incorporating the banners and stoles appropriate to each season. In some ways the worship is very spiritual, with a significant emphasis on reverence and the grandeur of music, both classical and modern, which may be best described as “exciting and worshipful.” In some ways the worship is very joyful, including warm fellowship and appropriate laughter. As one member said, “I have a hard time describing it to others, but once they experience it, they know why I love it so much.”


We welcome all to our services of worship. Sunday morning worship begins at 10:55 am with announcements, followed by the chiming of the hour and the procession of the Chancel Choir. 


Childcare (Extended Session) is available each Sunday for newborns through age 4.  A Time for Children is part of our worship service most Sundays, after which K5 children and younger are invited to leave for Children’s Church in room 117. For additional information about childcare, please contact Claudia Burch.
