What should I expect on my first visit?

Our Connection Center is located inside the Lobby of the Worship Center.  Here, a connection team member can assist you by answering any questions you may have or help you find your way around.

We offer two Sunday Morning Worship Service times. The two services are identical so you can choose which service works best for you and your family!

We also have a  Sunday Evening Worship Service every Sunday at 5:00 PM.

Our services include a Worship time as well as practical biblical preaching. At ABC we preach and teach from the King James Version Bible.

Every Wednesday Evening we offer a group Bible Study in our main auditorium at 6:30 PM. Throughout the year we also offer Elective Classes on a variety of topics.  You may stop by our Connection Center to see if we are currently offering Elective Classes.

Adult Life Groups  are a great way to get connected at ABC! These are small classes that allow you grow in the Lord and have great Christian fellowship as well. We have classes offered at 8:30AM and 9:30AM. For more information to help you decide which class might be best for you please visit here .


Where do I take my children?

Our Infant and Toddler Nurseries are located directly behind the Connection Center near the church lobby. Nursery care is offered for ages birth - 3 during all service times. For your convenience there is also a private area available inside our women's restroom for nursing mothers as well as an additional changing station.

Children's Classes are offered at 9:30 AM on Sunday Mornings. To find your child's class simply stop by our Connection Center or you can learn more here.  We also offer Kids Church during our 10:45 Worship service for children 4-11.


What about my teens?

We have an exciting Student Ministry for students in grades 6-12. Sundays mornings at 9:30 we offer a Teen Life Group where they will be taught a relevant and challenging lesson from God's Word. We also have Student Worship every Wednesday evening at 6:30. In addition, every Friday night we offer a more casual and relaxed meeting called FULL THROTTLE,  for students to fellowship with other teens in a safe and structured environment.

 

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, it is our desire that you feel comfortable here regardless of how you are dressed. 

 

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.

 

Other questions?

If there's something we missed on this list, just give us a call, send an email, 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 at Astatula Baptist will be awesome! 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 step in to worship! Let us know how we can serve you better, and we hope to meet you this Sunday! ([email protected] or 352-742-2221)
