Visiting FBC

“Therefore receive one another, just as Christ also received us, to the glory of God.”      Romans 15:7

We are extremely excited that you are considering visiting First Baptist Church! Whether you are from this area or visiting the Great Smoky Mountains, we want your worship experience to be an unforgettable one. We like to tell our visitors that, “We are a small church where lots of people go, and we want you to feel welcome and at home with The First Family!”

Sunday morning worship services begin at 8:15 and 10:45 a.m. Bible Study Fellowship Groups begin at 9:30 a.m. Our evening worship service begins at 6:30 p.m. (see our complete church schedule). Visitors should arrive ten minutes before their desired worship time to allow for parking.


We reserve plenty of parking for visitors just outside our main entrance. Look for the signs or ask a Parking Lot Attendant for assistance. Parking for handicapped, special-needs and new or expectant moms is also available near our main entrance. Parking Lot Attendants are available throughout our parking lot to direct you and give you information.

A Warm Welcome

Helpful greeters, ushers, and staff members are located at church entrances and at the Welcome Center in the church’s main atrium to welcome and assist you. If you have questions or need any assistance, please ask one of our friendly volunteers. They will be happy to assist you.

Child Care

First Baptist Church has an excellent preschool ministry. We offer preschool child care from bed babies through 5 years. Our Welcome Center is located just outside the Preschool Department and our greeters will be happy to assist you in getting your child to his or her class.
