What should I expect on my first visit?
Most adults attend one worship service where they enjoy the beautiful and inspiring music of the choir, and soloists. The music is always followed by a clear, helpful, and challenging Bible message from Pastor Lane. This service is a little over one hour in length. Also, at 9:30 AM, there are Adult Life Group Classes. These classes are smaller group settings where you are invited to meet people, enjoy some coffee and donuts, and hear a lesson more directly applicable to your life-stage. The best way to get to know people at Astatula Baptist Church is to visit one of these Adult Life Group classes.
Where do I take my children?
We have an excellent nursery as well as something special for every child no matter what their age. At every service there are safe, clean, and highly staffed nurseries for children two years old and under. For children three 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.
What about my teens?
We have Sunday Bible Class for your teen where they will be taught a relevant and challenging lesson from God's Word. We have activities and fellowships that will minister to your teen in many ways.
How Do I Dress?
There is not a dress code at Astatula 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 Astatula Baptist!
Am I Expected to Participate in the Offering?
No. We don't invite you to Astatula 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.
