Thank you for Planning a Visit with us!
When you arrive please stop at our welcome table. One of our church members will be waiting to personally greet you.
Arriving 15-20 minutes early will allow time for us to give you a tour of our building, introduce you around, get your kids checked in, and answer any questions that you have.
We'll reserve great seats for you in the service.
Wait, is that too much? We don't want o overwhelm you with our enthusiasm. If you prefer to slip in quietly we respect that. Just let us know when you're ready to connect.
A message from Pastor Forest Greetham
WHAT SHOULD I EXPECT
Sunday mornings are a celebration of the glory of God as well as the grace-gift of community we have enjoyed between Sundays.
The worship service lasts about an hour and 15 minutes and contains solid teaching from God’s Word, singing, and prayer. Because your walk with Jesus isn’t just for Sunday mornings, we provide discussion questions to help you apply or meditate on the message throughout your week.
The music is a mix of traditional hymns and contemporary favorites accompanied by piano and guitar. You might hear a classic hymn from the 1800’s or a song your enjoyed on the radio just last week.
WHERE ARE YOU LOCATED?
First Baptist is located at 1226 Substation Rd. in the growing community of Brunswick, Ohio. Our church is on the west edge of the community just north of St Rte 303 on Substation Rd. Click HERE for directions.
WHEN ARE YOUR SERVICES?
On Sunday mornings Sunday School for all ages starts @ 9:30 am and the morning worship service is from 10:45 am-12:15 pm. There is a break for coffee and donuts at 10:15, this is a great time to make new friends or catch up with old ones.
On Thursdays we have a morning Bible Study at 10:00 am (Sept. thru May) and in the evening at 6:30 pm you can connect with one of our Growth Groups, either at the church or in a leader's home.
WHAT SHOULD I WEAR?
Honestly, we are not concerned about what you look like on the outside. You will find a wide range of attire; from jeans and t-shirts to suits and dresses. We simply want you to come as you are, from whatever walk of life, and worship God with us.
WHAT ABOUT MY CHILDREN?
We value the experience of families worshipping together and the many benefits a child gains by being a welcome, loved, and involved part of the church family. Check out our KIDS PAGE for more information about our Children’s ministries.
Our 9:30 am Sunday School classes offer a Bible-based curriculum for all ages. We offer an infant/toddler nursery for children up to age 24 months during both Sunday School and the morning worship service. Children’s Church is offered to children ages 3 through kindergarten during the worship service.
First Baptist also wants families to know that we are striving to do our best to protect and care for your children. In the spring of 2015, we instituted a Child Protection Policy that we want to make available for you read over (click HERE to read the policy). All volunteers in children's ministries have undergone training and background checks.

WHAT IF I HAVE A QUESTION?
We’ve tried our best to answer your questions before you even asked, but if we missed something:
As you enter the doors you will be welcomed and given a weekly bulletin, it contains information that you may find helpful. Just inside you will find a welcome table. Feel free to ask one of the smiling faces there any further questions you have and grab some more info about our church. They will also be happy to show you around the building, help you get your kids settled, or whatever you need to make your visit an enjoyable experience. We know being new is hard and we want you to feel welcome and relaxed while not overwhelming you with our enthusiasm for your visit.
We also understand that many of your questions you want answered before you come. We have designed our website to meet that need. Take some time to look around and if your question isn’t answered on here, please let us know! Feel free to call the church anytime at 330.225.4600. Pastor Forest or our church secretary will try to answer any of the questions you may have.
