First, let us say thank you for looking into First Baptist Bluffton. What you will find here are people who love God and each other. You will see what happens when we come together as a community, centered on the Gospel of Jesus Christ. Our services are designed to engage, refresh and reorient our lives around our central purpose: the glory of God. This is not a religious experience as much as a relational one. We were created for God and our desire in worship is to focus on Him.
We have people worshipping together in all types of attire. Some wear suits while others wear shorts and flip-flops, both are welcome and both feel right at home here at First.
Guest parking is available to the left of our Worship Center with the spaces in front of the building reserved for handicapped parking. CLICK HERE for a campus map. As you enter through the main entrance, you will be greeted by our First Impressions Team who can answer any questions you may have.
We offer two worship services on Sunday mornings; a traditional service at 8.30, and a contemporary service at 11. Our Connection Table will be directly in front of you as you enter the Worship Center and there you will find information on various ministries including missions, women's, men's, student's and children's.
Lighthouse Kids is an exciting, gospel focused environment for children birth through 5th grade. The children's wing is located in the Family Life Center and can be accessed by the entrance adjacent to Calhoun Street. CLICK HERE for a campus map. As you enter, a member of our children's staff at our children's desk (located through the door on the left) will help you check-in your children and guide you to their rooms to meet their teachers. Pagers will be provided to parents with young children, to help put your mind at ease and allow you to thoroughly enjoy your time of worship. All childcare providers are members of First Baptist Bluffton and complete yearly background checks through the SC Law Enforcement Division. They are eager to serve you by caring for your children.
