welcome

We know that it can sometimes be intimidating to visit a new church. We hope that this page will make you feel more comfortable preparing for your visit, by explaining what to expect when you visit F.B.C. Alhambra.

What to expect

on your first visit and beyond...

WHEN & WHERE:

Sunday School - 9:00 am

Sunday Service - 10:30 am


Alhambra, CA 91801


WHAT TO WEAR:

We welcome people from all backgrounds and cultures.  There is not a strict dress code at First Baptist Church of Alhambra for our members or guests. In case you are wondering, our ministry leaders and many of our church members dress in a more traditional “Sunday-Best” style of dress. Typically the men wear a nice dress shirt with or without a neck tie and a pair of nice dress slacks. The women wear modest apparel appropriate for worship in God’s house. However, our main goal is that you feel welcome and comfortable for your visit to First Baptist Church of Alhambra.


WHEN YOU ARRIVE:

Enter the church parking lot on Atlantic Blvd. or Olive Street. Once you enter the church campus you can find friendly greeters to direct you to the Sanctuary, the Welcome Center, Youth Building, the Nursery, or Family Life Building where most of our Sunday School classrooms are located and church bathroom facilities. 


LOBBY - WELCOME CENTER:

Our Welcome Center is located in our lobby, and a place for you to find more information about what is happening at F.B.C. Alhambra. Please don’t hesitate to ask one of our Hosts for directions or information. We also have a welcome gift for you and an information packet that should answer most of the questions you might have about F.B.C. Alhambra.


SUNDAY SERVICE:

In all things we do we seek to honor God. (1 Corinthians 10:31) This is particularly something we earnestly attempt to accomplish through our worship. Every service gives you an opportunity to join us in singing hymns and spiritual songs as a congregation, followed by practical biblical-based teaching that will transform, encourage and inspire. We encourage you to participate in all aspects of the service according to your comfort level. Worshiping God is a very personal experience, even in a group setting.


WHERE SHOULD I TAKE MY CHILDREN:

We believe people of all ages need an exciting church home. Therefore, F.B.C. Alhambra has special worship service for children. We have two directors whose sole purpose is to minister to children and youth. Raquel Lopez and Pastor William Ruth would love to meet your children this Sunday to assist you in helping your children become all that God has created them to be.


NURSERY & PRESCHOOL

All of our Children's Ministries are staffed by a fantastic team of adult volunteers that will provide a safe and secure environment for your children while you attend Sunday School and\or Worship Service.  If you feel more comfortable supervising your children while they are in church with you, that’s fine too.

YOUTH:

We think it is important that children learn the transition between having their own programs, and being in the sanctuary. For this reason and more, we are honored to have our youth (ages 12-18) join the adults for our time of worship before moving into their own programs.
