Common Questions

What should I wear?
Where do I park?
Will I find a seat?
Is there something for my kids?

Maybe you are returning to church, or coming to church for the very first time. Or, maybe you're an active church member who just moved to town and needs to find a new church home. Whatever your story may be, you probably have a lot of questions before you visit Houston's First Baptist Church.

Here are some common questions we hear about what to expect on a Sunday at Houston's First. If we've missed something, let us know! You're probably not the only one with that question, so asking us will help us help you and future guests.

What is your Sunday schedule?

The Sunday schedule varies from campus to campus. Visit the Worship Service Times and Life Bible Studies pages to find the right fit for you and your family.

What do I wear?

You'll see people in everything from shorts to suits on Sundays. Our concern isn't what's on the outside, but what's on inside. Come as you are. Jesus accepts us as we are when we come to Him. Why shouldn't we?

Where do I park?

Parking is on the south side of the building of Houston's First Baptist Sienna.

Is there anything for my children?

Of course! We have Sunday options for newborns through high school seniors, including special times of worship designed just for the younger kids.

Kids' Worship is for K through 5th graders at 11a in The Loft

Our online listing of Life Bible Studies provides more detail about what's available for all children, no matter what their age may be.

How will I find a Bible study?

Take a look at our online listing of classes. You can filter out the exact criteria for classes you'd like that should give you a good idea where you want to go. On Sunday, stop by the Welcome Center in the Foyer. A Welcome Team member can show you a listing of Life Bible Studies and will guide you where to go. Believe us — our goal is get every guest and member into a Life Bible Study so we'll go out of our way to help you get connected!

In the church I grew up in, some people had "their" seats. What if I unknowingly sit in somebody's seat?

Don't worry about it. Sit wherever you want. Nobody has a claim on a seat. In fact, we'll even let you save seats for your family and friends!

May I bring my venti, three-pump vanilla, two-pump caramel, non-fat, no foam, extra hot, upside-down, stirred, extra-extra caramel drizzle, caramel machiatto into church?

Yes — but only if you bring one for the rest of us. (Just kidding, of course. Kinda.) Yes, you may bring your drink with you, but why not save your money and get coffee at church? We have free coffee stations around the church on Sunday mornings and have great premium coffees at Corner Books for a small donation! We simply ask that you finish your coffee and other food or drinks before entering the Worship Center for the worship services.
