I’m New

If you plan to join us for worship, please know that we would love to have you. You’ll want to arrive a few minutes before the 10:30 start time so you’ll have time to get situated. In terms of what to expect as you arrive, enter the large parking lot on the west side of our sanctuary and look for the blue directional signs that read “Guest Parking.”

From there, you will see nearby our main entrance underneath the carport. At that main entrance, you will be greeted by a smiling face or two.

Things to know…

If you are coming with children 3 and under, you will be directed first to our Preschool wing and given the opportunity to leave your child with our volunteers who will gladly care for and love on your little one.

Everyone’s next stop will be our sanctuary. As you arrive, you will receive a bulletin that contains sermon notes. Please sit anywhere you like. As the service begins, you’ll hear a few brief announcements and then we will stand and sing a few Christ-centered songs together. Then we will sit and hear one song from our choir. Finally, we will hear from our pastor a sermon based on a passage from the Bible. That’s pretty much what you can expect.

And let us add that you should not worry about any kind of a dress code. You will find a variety of dress as you look around.

I'm new to church, new to the sermon, new to congregating, Sunset Avenue Baptist Church, Rocky Mount, NC, Southern Baptist, bible study, live streamed sermons

Many will wear casual clothes and some might be a little dressier, but you’ll hopefully feel at home no matter what you decide to wear. As you spend time with us, we believe that you’ll be impressed by the greatness of Jesus as we worship Him and that you will learn to know Him better and serve Him better as He speaks to you through His word. And we certainly hope and believe that you will meet a lot of people who are genuinely pleased to have you spend time with us. We hope to see you soon!
