Frequently Asked Questions

WHERE IS FIRST BAPTIST LOCATED?

Our address is 1110 S. Cochran Ave., Charlotte, MI 48813. Our church is located right across from the Eaton County Fair Grounds. Visit this page for precise directions.

WHEN ARE YOUR SERVICE TIMES?

We typically have Sunday morning services at 8:30am & 11:00am. There is also a Sunday School hour between those service times at 9:45am.

Please note though that in months with five Sundays, we hold a single, combined "Family Worship" service on the last Sunday of the month. This service is at 10:30am. Our Calendar holds the most up-to-date information.

HOW SHOULD I DRESS?

Here at First Baptist we want you to come as you are. Wear whatever makes you most comfortable, whether that be jeans and your favorite shirt or your best Sunday suit. We just want you to come with a heart ready for worship!

WHAT TYPE OF MUSIC DO YOU HAVE?

The short answer is, all kinds. Our 8:30am service typically sings the beautiful hymns of the past, while our 11:00am service typically sings the worship songs of today.

While we use many styles of music, we are very careful to make sure that the songs we choose are biblically correct, and that they serve as an aid to worship, not as a distraction. What is most important is that our worship is not about us -- it is about Him. It is about coming together as a church, laying down our personal preferences and lifting our hearts and voices in unified worship to our heavenly Father.

HOW LONG DOES THE SERVICE USUALLY LAST?

Generally about an hour and fifteen minutes.

I HAVE YOUNG CHILDREN, IS IT OKAY TO BRING THEM?

YES! You and your children are more then welcome! We have safe and clean children's areas with trained volunteers who will love your children and take excellent care of them. You can choose to either have them join you for worship in the sanctuary, or if you prefer, we have programs for 1st through 5th graders, preschoolers & kindergarteners, and a nursery for the youngest children throughout the service.
