We want it to be easy for you to come to church. We want you to experience a great time and meet friendly people who will welcome you into the family of First
Baptist Church. We know that first-time visits to any church raise many questions and concerns.
Here is a quick look at some frequently asked questions that will hopefully give you a better idea of what to expect when you visit FBC. If you do not see an
answer to your question here or on any of the specific ministry pages, please contact the church office by calling 402.296.9284. Our staff would love to assist you
in preparation for your visit to FBC.
Where are you located?
Our address is 16220 Hwy 75, Plattsmouth, NE 68048. We are right on Hwy 75, which offers easy accessibility from Plattsmouth, Beaver Lake, or Bellevue. To get
directions to our church, click here.
Where do I go?
Greeters are located at each entrance to the building. We have two carports for drop-off if the weather is inclement, or you can enter through the main entrance
in the front of the building. These greeters will direct you to the Welcome Center, where you will be greeted by a host or hostess. They will help you get to the
main auditorium, help your children get to their classes, and show you where your adult class is.
What should I wear?
We are more concerned with meeting your needs than focusing on what you wear. So that you can be most comfortable, you should know that many people do
choose to wear their "Sunday best". We only ask that you be modest and appropriate in what you choose to wear to God's house.
What do I need to bring?
A Bible will help you follow along with the message and Scripture reading. If you have a Bible, bring it with you. If you don't have a Bible, we offer them to all
visitors at the Welcome Center. We also offer a wide variety of Bibles to purchase in the bookstore.
When do I need to arrive?
Sunday morning services begin promptly at 11 am. Adult Connection Groups and Sunday School classes meet at 10:00 am. Plan to arrive at least 10 minutes prior
to the service/class time to allow adequate time for parking and getting to the Auditorium/Bible Study class. If you have small children, this will give you enough
time to show them their classes and get them checked in properly.
Is the church handicap accessible?
Yes. There is reserved parking directly in front of the main entrance. The building is also equipped with wheelchair accessible entrances and handicap accessible
restrooms located throughout the building. Should you need a wheelchair to use or need assistance, please call the church office ahead of time or tell someone at
the Welcome Center, and we'll be more than happy to help you get to where you are going.
Where do my children go?
We are equipped with clean, professional, state of the art nurseries and children's classes. (Our nursery is for babies through 4 year olds while you are in the
main auditorium.) We have gone to extreme efforts to make sure your little ones will be cared for properly. You will receive a pager upon checking in and will be
notified if your child needs extra assistance in any way. We also offer children's churches during the Sunday morning service. We feel it is best for children to
have the Bible taught on a level that can be understood and comprehended. We believe children should love coming to church, and we strive to make that
How are visitors recognized?
The last thing we want to do is single you out or put you on the spot. We ask visitors to fill out a Guest Information Card at the Welcome Center. Pastor will
acknowledge and thank you for visiting with us. We'll never ask you to stand up or call you out in any way. We want you to have a wonderful experience at First
Baptist Church. We desire to create a friendly and comfortable environment to make you feel right at home.
We hope you will join us soon.
