Maybe you are returning to church, or coming to church for the very first time. Or, maybe you’re an active church member who just moved to town and needs to find a new church home.
Whatever your story may be, you probably have a lot of questions before you visit Astoria’s First Baptist Church.
Here’s our attempt to guess what’s on your mind and answer your questions. If we’ve missed something, let us know, you’re probably not the only one with that question, so asking us will help us help you and future guests.
What do I wear?
You’ll see people in everything from shorts to suits on Sundays. Our concern isn’t what’s on the outside, but what’s on inside. Come as you are. Besides, Jesus accepts us as we are when we come to Him. Why shouldn’t we?
Is there anything for my children?
Of course! We have Sunday options for newborns through high school seniors, including special times of worship designed just for the younger kids.
May I bring my venti, three-pump vanilla, two-pump caramel, non-fat, no foam, extra hot, upside-down, stirred, extra-extra caramel drizzle, caramel machiatto into church?
Yes — but only if you bring one for the rest of us. (Just kidding, of course. Kinda.) Yes, you may bring your drink with you. However, be sure to finish it before you enter the Worship Center. That’s the one place food and beverages are not permitted. By the way, why not save your money and get coffee at church? It’s free and usually comes with a cookie!
