First Visit


Our church has always had an open-door policy. Feel free to ask any question about any ministry. We welcome your questions. Below are answers to some of the questions we are frequently asked.

First Visit
What can I expect on my first visit to CBT?

Visitors are always welcome here at our church.  We are thrilled to have you here, regardless of your church or religious background.  Be sure to stop by our Welcome Center to pick up information about our services, as well as a free gift that we have for all first time visitors.  Our friendly staff of greeters and ushers will direct your family to your Sunday school class or into the main auditorium for the service.  Of course, be sure to take advantage of our well staffed nursery for newborn children through age 4.

Most adults attend worship service where they enjoy inspiring music of the choir followed by a encouraging, challenging and Biblical message from Pastor O’Donnell. This service is a little over one hour in length. Also, during the 10:00 hour on Sunday mornings, there are 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 stage in life.  The best way to get to know people at CBT is to visit one of these adult Bible classes.  

Other Questions?

If there's something we missed on this list, contact us here or ask someone when you arrive. 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 to Community Baptist Temple will be great! 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 walk in the doors!  We hope to meet you this Sunday!
