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.

Childcare is provided throughout the service for our youngest children, through Kindergarten. Our children in Grades 1 and up are encouraged to begin worship in the sanctuary with us – either in the Prayground space or with families in the pews – and then will be dismissed to their class time following Stepsitters!

  • Lectio Divina
    This weekly spiritual practice is held each Wednesday, 4:30 – 5:00 PM. Meaning “meditate on the Word,” Lectio Divina consists of silent contemplation of a chosen Biblical passage, communion and prayer. A relaxing way to un-wind from your day and be renewed. Lectio Divina meets at Independence Park in Beverly during the summer and in the main floor office suite at FBC during the rest of the year. NOTE: The final Lectio Divina of the summer will take place on August 7th, and will resume on September 18th.
