Fequently Asked Questions
Visiting any church for the very first time can make anyone a little nervous. Where do I go? What do I wear? What time do I show up? What's here for my kids? What can I expect?

Schedule of Services
Finding Nurseries, Classes, and Services
Our campus has a lot of buildings, which to a guest can seem overwhelming at first. It's not as complicated as it looks, and we would like to help you find the appropriate nurseries, classes, and services for every person in your family. Our greeters and ushers are located around campus, as well as in the lobby and hallways of the main auditorium, and will gladly help direct and even escort you to the right place.
What programs do you have for my kids?
Starting with excellent nurseries, we offer something for every age child from birth through college! At every service on Sunday morning there are safe, clean, and highly staffed nurseries for children three years old and under. For children four years old through sixth grade there are fun, friendly, and Bible-centered classes. These classes are staffed with trained, friendly, and well-qualified teachers and helpers who will make church exciting and memorable for your child. For students seventh grade through twelfth grade, there a Youth department class hosted by our Youth Pastor.
What should I expect as an adult visitor?
Kerwin offers a wide array of adult Sunday school classes for couples and singles at any stage of life. These classes are smaller group settings where you are invited to meet people, enjoy some coffee and donuts, and hear a Bible lesson directly applicable to your stage in life. The best way to get to know people at Kerwin Baptist Church is to visit one of these adult Bible classes.
After Sunday School, plan on attending our morning worship service where you will enjoy the beautiful and inspiring music of the choir, ensembles, and soloists. The music is always followed by a clear, helpful, and challenging Bible message from Pastor Joe Myers. (This service is a little over one hour in length.) Following the morning worship service, Pastor Myers would like to personally greet you and thank you for visiting Kerwin.
How should I dress?
There is not a dress code at Kerwin Baptist Church for members or guests. Our ministry leaders and many of our church family dress in more traditional “Sunday” dress; however, our main goal is that you would feel welcome and comfortable for your visit here at Kerwin.
Do I have to participate in the offering?
No. We do not invite you to Kerwin Baptist Church for your offering. We want our service to be a gift to you. We hope you will find in our church a warm family spirit, truth from God's Word, and a home where you can grow in God's grace. Please do not feel any obligation to participate in the offering as a guest.
If there is something we missed on this list, just give us a call or ask someone when you arrive. Whether you are new to the area and looking for a church home, or if it has been a long time since you have attended church at all, we hope your first visit at Kerwin Baptist Church will be memorable. We want to serve you and your family, and we are looking forward to meeting you personally. We hope to see you this Sunday!
