WELCOME TO FIRST BAPTIST WATERLOO

We are a diverse group of people from all walks of life, meeting and growing together through the study of God’s Word, through serving others, and through strong friendships as a local congregation. We have a strong desire to see the lost come to know Jesus Christ as personal Lord and Saviour, as well as to see believers grow in their Christian walk day by day. We would love for you to join us!

 
Where do I go when I arrive?

Once you’ve parked, come through the glass doors into our foyer, and make your way to our Welcome Centre, where one of our members will be happy to show you around!

How long is the morning service?

Our Sunday morning service is about an hour long. Our service begins at 10:50am and wraps up at 12:00pm. Our Sunday morning service generally begins with a combination of worship, announcements, and special music, followed by a message from one of our pastors.

What programs are available for children?

We have a wide range of programs available for children of all ages! For Sunday mornings specifically, we provide a Nursery for infants, and a Children’s Church program. Check out our Ministries section for details on the various programs we run.

Will it be hard to get to know people?

Not at all! Many of our attendees stick around following our Sunday morning service and spend time together. Don’t be surprised if a number of people introduce themselves your first time out!
