Answers to Some Frequently Asked Questions:
I am a guest. Where do I park?
There are parking spaces on all sides of the church building, but we have designated guest parking on the west side of the building. There are also handicapped spaces designated throughout the parking lot by various entry doors.
What door should I enter?
You are welcome to use any of our entrances. If you are coming for the 10:45 a.m. worship service, you may enter through the front doors of the sanctuary on the north side of the building (facing Six Mile Lane). You will be greeted by one of our members who will be happy to assist you with getting settled in the sanctuary and answer any questions you may have. If you are coming for the Bible Study time at 9:30, you may enter through the double doors facing the west side of the building (Historic Drive). That is where our Welcome Center is located, and greeters there will be able to direct you and your family members to a Bible Study class.
Where do my children go during the worship service?
Your children are always welcome to remain with you in the sanctuary. WBBC provides a nursery for infants/toddlers during the Bible Study hour and the Worship Service. On most Sundays, a special children’s worship service is provided (the children leave the sanctuary to go with the children’s church workers to their designated worship area about 10 minutes into the service).
Where is the nursery for infants/small children?
We have dedicated nursery workers who care for your children while you are in Bible Study and the Worship Service. We have a sign-in/sign-out system for security. The nursery is in the center of the church building, in a room just behind the sanctuary. You can get to the nursery from any of the various entrances. A greeter will be happy to assist you.
What is the Bible Study time at 9:30 like?
The Bible Study time features multiple classes with gifted teachers where there is an opportunity for teaching and discussion about life application. You will be in a class with a group of people like you, seeking answers to life’s questions from the Bible. A greeter will be happy to direct you and your family members to a Bible Study class.
What is the Sunday Morning worship service like?
We have congregational singing (typically “blended” with a mixture of traditional hymns and contemporary praise choruses), choir specials, prayer, a time of offering (guests should not feel obligated to give), and a biblical sermon from God’s Word focused on practical application in today’s world (you can listen to previous messages on this website). We use a video projection system to project the words of the songs and the message outline up on a screen at the front of the sanctuary.
Is there a dress code for the worship service?
There is no dress code. The attire of our church family on a typical Sunday morning ranges from “business” to “casual” dress. Most people probably fall somewhere in the middle, in the “business casual” range.
