What to Expect:
As you arrive, you'll notice that we have up-front parking reserved for our visitors and seniors. If it is raining, don't be surprised if a high school aged student runs out to your car with an umbrella!
From 9:00am - 9:30am, our greeters are at the open doors of our church, ready to welcome you and answer any questions you may have. As you enter, there is a welcome table in the center of the foyer with information about our church, as well as an information board to the left with brochures about our different ministries.
Our worship team believes in fostering an atmosphere that is conducive for worshipping God through song with minimal distractions. Because of this, we sing a variety of songs, from traditional hymns to contemporary worship.
Our Senior Pastor, Shawn Newberry, regularly preaches directly from the Bible each Sunday. You can expect a sermon that is theologically and doctrinally sound, culturally relevant, and personally practical.
The Four-Sixteen Hour
The Four-Sixteen Hour (based on Ephesians 4:16) follows the morning worship service, from 11:00am - 12:00pm. This is a time to connect and grow together with other people during a social time, one-on-one time, and small groups. We also offer multiple classes for adults, youth, and children. Feel free to 'drop-in' any of our classes, or simply spend your time in fellowship getting to know us.
Do I need to 'dress up'?
Here at Battle Ground Baptist Church, we encourage you to 'come as you are'. You may notice that some members choose to 'dress up', however, most dress comfortably on a typical Sunday morning. Basically, we regard how you come as between you and God. The bottom line is, you won't be 'looked down on' for what you are wearing.
What about my children?
As you enter the building, the hallway to your left leads you to our nursery and children's classrooms. From 9:15am - 12:00pm, we have background checked nursery staff available to care for infants and toddlers during the service as well as during Sunday School.
Children's Church (Kindergarden - 3rd Grade)
After our worship music during the service at approximately 10:15am, we offer 'Children's Church' classes for children in Kindergarden - 3rd grade.
