Worship Services

Gathering together for times of worship offers us the opportunity to center ourselves in the midst of a busy world, to renew our strength, to respond to God’s loving and leading call to love the challenges before us. In worship, we find strength in one another, in our faith, in the scripture, and in our God. Our worship life is central to our experience as a community of faith and is a time in which all, visitors and old friends alike, are warmly welcomed. Come, just as you are, and be a part of the worship experience at First Baptist Church in Beverly.
