Where do I park?

If you are arriving for Bible study (9:40AM) or our traditional worship (11AM), look for the guest parking spaces located just outside the entrance to our church Welcome Center.

Where do I take my children?
Upon arriving to our campus, enter the Welcome Center or come directly to the Preschool Building. A hostess or our Nursery Coordinator is there to assist guests each week.
All guest will be assisted with checking-in at one of the security check-in kiosks located in the hallway. Parents will provide all important information including names, birthdates, addresses, emergency contact cell phone numbers, allergies, or special instructions for their children. The kiosk will print a security tag for each child, his or her bag and a matching security ID number for the parents to present at pick-up. The hostess will then guide families to the appropriate room based on the child’s birth date. Specific instructions can be provided on the form at each classroom door as needed. Please notify teachers each week of any allergies or critical special instructions.
What do I wear?
We hope you feel comfortable at FBC Augusta, knowing that you will see a variety of styles of dress. Our members who attend our contemporary worship tend to dress more casual—which includes jeans. And our members who attend our traditional worship tend to dress more formal—which includes coat and tie for the men, and dresses for the women. However, regardless of the service you attend, you will see the entire range of attire.
Do you have an orientation class?
Yes. As you visit with us and provide contact information, we will follow up with dates for our 4-week orientation class, called “Finding Your Place.”
How do I join your church?
We look forward to celebrating with you as you join our church—especially if that includes a profession of faith in Christ! At the conclusion of each worship service, we offer opportunity to unite with our congregation through a profession of faith, a statement of faith, or transfer of membership from another congregation. We will be delighted to help you navigate all this—we simply encourage you to take that step and indicate your desire to join with us. Regardless of how you come to us, welcome to our fellowship of believers!
