Welcome to Shades Crest Baptist Church!
Shades Crest Baptist is a caring congregation that welcomes anyone and everyone. We want you to discover the joy that we have when we come together to worship God in spirit and in truth. If you are planning to visit on a Sunday morning, here are some tips to help you find your way around and know what to expect.
Reserved Guest Parking is available in the front along the length of the facility.
Bible Study Sunday Morning
Sunday mornings, you will be greeted by a smiling face when you enter our building. These greeters can direct you and your family to classes appropriate for ages and stages of life.
Our morning worship begins at 10:30 after Bible Study.
Children are welcome to remain with their parents in the sanctuary, or the Charter Chapel where a live feed of the service is available along with additional supplies to keep little hands busy. Children grades K-4 also have the option to go to Kids in Christ in the Music Hall during a designated time during worship.
As you enter the sanctuary, you will receive an order of worship. The service usually begins with an instrumental prelude when you can prepare your heart for worship. Please give us the opportunity to know you better by filling out the guest information on the Worship Guide and placing it in the offering plate. Following worship, our pastors will be at the exit doors to greet you personally.
Provision for a unique worship experience is also available in our Charter Chapel.
In the chapel, a live closed-circuit signal is projected on a large screen. Pastoral staff and deacon families worship here along with any who would prefer this type of worship experience. We follow the same worship guide as those in the Sanctuary.
Join us Wednesday nights at Shades Crest for a meal, a time of worship, and Bible study afterward, all in our Fellowship Hall. The dinner line opens at 4:45 and cost $5 per person or $20 per family. Worship and Bible study begin at 6pm.
