Getting to know each other
We know meeting someone for the first time can be intimidating, and going to a new church for the first time can be nerve-racking. We want to help make your first experience at First Baptist Church Forest Park a great one!
Due to COVID-19, FBC Forest Park is currently meeting online only. We invite you to gather with our church family every Sunday morning at 11:00 for our Live Stream. Click below to view our services.

What can I expect?
How long is an FBC Forest Park service?
Our worship service starts at 10:45 and we try to be done by 12:00. Song lyrics are projected onto the screen and hymnals are provided in the pews so you can sing along and engage with worship however you feel most comfortable. After the music portion of service is complete, our pastor (just call him Elliott) will share a message rooted in the truths of scripture, encouraging you to apply what God reveals to your life.
What's the culture like at FBC Forest Park?
Honestly, we are a little bit of everything. We come from all walks of life and all backgrounds. We are multigenerational and multicultural. We love it that way! Our worship is traditional in style but we are not stuffy. Our people are known for arriving early because we simply enjoy hanging out with each other. The attire on Sunday morning is as varied as the people. Some wear ties. Some wear jeans. All are welcome. If it helps you decide, our pastor only wears a tie to weddings and funerals. Come as you are and expect to feel welcomed as our guest.
What about my kids?
Our children’s programs are currently closed due to Covid-19. We are regularly evaluating the situation and look forward to the day we can reopen our normal ministries for children and families.
Your children are a top priority for us. The other thing we make a priority is your children’s safety. Our staff and volunteers maintain strict accountability and up-to-date background checks. We will ask you to fill out some basic emergency contact and safety information the first time you leave your child in our care. We have a nursery for children age birth through kindergarten. Children 3 years old through 5th grade meet for Sunday School, join us for worship in the sanctuary, and then leave after the music for children's church. Parents can pick up their kids after church from the nursery or the children's area.
