Visiting any church for the very first time can be a tough experience. Well, we want to put you at ease.

Where is the church located?
Our church is located on 600 West between Trafalgar and Morgantown off of Highway 252. As you travel on Highway 252 you will see our church sign on the corner of 600 West and Hwy. 252.
Turn on 600 west and travel one mile until you see the church campus. As you turn into the parking lot the visitor/guest parking spaces are clearly marked.
As you approach the main worship center, one of our hospitality greeters will meet you and direct you to the right classes and services. They can also answer other questions you may have.
What can I expect on my first visit?
Most adults attend the worship service where they enjoy the beautiful and inspiring music of the choir, congregation and soloists. The music is always followed by a clear, helpful, and challenging Bible message from Pastor Hopson. This service is a little over one hour in length.
Also before the worship service there are LifeStage Adult Bible Classes.
These classes are smaller group settings where you are invited to meet people, enjoy perhaps some coffee and donuts, and hear a teaching lesson more directly applicable to your life-stage. The best way to get to know people at Fellowship Baptist Church is to visit one of these adult Bible classes.
Where do I take my children?
Starting with excellent nursery, there is something special for every age child. At every service there is a safe, clean, and highly staffed nursery for children three years old and under.
For children four years old through sixth grade there are fun, friendly, and Bible-centered classes. These classes are staffed with trained, friendly, and well-qualified teachers and helpers who will make church exciting and memorable for your child.
We would like to help you find the appropriate childcare, classes, and services for every person in your family. Our greeters and ushers are located around campus as well as in the lobby of the main worship center and will gladly help direct and even escort you to the right place.
You can see what room your child's class is in by clicking the appropriate link: Nurseries, Toddlers, 1st–2nd grade, 3rd–4th grade, 5th–6th grade.
What about my teens?
Our student ministries are broken down into three main divisions: junior high, high school, and College & Career. Most of the teens attend a class for one hour and then a worship service another hour with their parents.
How should I dress?
There is not a dress code at Fellowship Baptist Church for members or guests. Our ministry leaders and many of our church family dress in more traditional “Sunday” dress; however, our main goal is that you would feel welcome and comfortable on your visit here at Fellowship Baptist!

Am I Expected to Participate in the Offering?
No. We don't invite you to Fellowship Baptist Church for your offering. We want our service to be a gift to you. We hope you will find in this place a warm family spirit, truth from God's Word, and a place where you can grow in God's grace. Please don't feel any obligation to participate in the offering as a guest.

Whether you're new to the area and looking for a church home, or if it's been a long time since you've attended church at all, we hope your first visit at Fellowship Baptist will be awesome! We exist to serve you and your family, and we are looking forward to meeting you personally. We hope you'll feel right at home from the very first moment you step onto campus! Let us know how we can serve you better, and we hope to meet you this Sunday!
