Fairmont Baptist Church | WHAT TO EXPECT

We want to give you an idea of what to expect when you come.


We take your kids safety very seriously by having a teacher and an assistant teacher in every classroom. The doors remain open and you're encouraged to visit your kids' class anytime during your visit to Fairmont Baptist Church. Classes are fun and have a snack, Bible lessons, and a craft. Biblical stories and the practical application of God's Word is what we focus in this Kids Ministry


Our church auditorium has two large sections of large, cushioned chairs.  Please sit wherever you want but the best seats are always toward the front.

A normal Sunday service lasts 60-70 minutes and goes like this: Welcome | A Song | Opening Prayer | A Couple More Songs | Praise and Prayer Request Time | Song | Sermon | Invitation | Tithes and Offerings | Announcements | Dismissal Song


Some of the world's most friendly people are at the door welcoming and greeting everyone at the front doors. If they don’t know the answer to your question, they can find someone who does. There is always a chance to speak with Pastor Chet after the church service.


If you’ve been to a few different churches, you know that musical styles can be quite different. Our Music ministry is led by a song leader and the music is largely audience-participated. The songs are traditional hymns and some praise choruses. You'll find a hymn book under one of the chairs in front of you and encourage you to sing unto Jesus Christ with all your heart. 


There is not a dress code at Fairmont Baptist Church for members or guests. Our pastor and many of our church family dress in more traditional “Sunday” dress; however, a specific attire is not required, and our members wear a variety of styles of clothing.


Parking is easy. We have a paved parking lot and leave open spaces toward the church's entrance for our guests. 


On Wednesday nights at 7:00, we meet in the church fellowship hall (the basement's main room). This time is informal with time to share how God has Answered your prayers, share Requests you want others to pray about, and a deeply practical Bible study lesson. Some of us head out after this time to Share Jesus Christ and invite our neighbors to church the next Sunday.  


Pastor Chet has a clear, teaching style and will show what exactly God is wanting us to learn from the Bible passage. He spends most of the year preaching through a particular set of Bible verses with occasional breaks for topical series. Expect our sermons to last roughly 40 minutes. Check out the full Sermon Archive.


Knowing about a church on their website or even attending a church service is good ways to know about a church. Although, the best way is to know is to get to know the real church--the people.

TWO ways to do this at Fairmont Baptist Church is: 1) become part of the adult Sunday School class which meets every Sunday at 10: 45 am and 2) find the next Friday Fellowship this month (involves a dinner with the Men and Women ministry groups and lots of fun on the last Friday of every month).    


What we believe is very important and we want you to know about these statements which are supported by the authority of God's Word not our own thoughts. Read our Beliefs


You may notice that we pass offering plates at Fairmont Baptist and wonder why? We’re working together to share the Gospel and share the love Jesus Christ has for others and we encourage those who call Fairmont Baptist their church home to give regularly, sacrificially and joyfully.

A portion of the money collected throughout the month is given to each of the Missions projects we support.
