Coffee and Conversation

Coffee and Conversation

Before the worship service starts, come on over to Barker Hall for a cup of coffee! Every Sunday morning at 10:30, First Baptist Church puts out a wonderful spread—coffee and baked goods for adults and snacks for kids. We want everyone at our Bloomington Normal church to feel welcome, and we know food and conversation go hand in hand!

Connecting with Members

If you’re new to our Bloomington Normal church, this is the perfect time for members and visitors to get to know each other. What better way to meet people than over a soothing cup of coffee? We would love to have the opportunity to find out who you are, what you do, and to extend a warm welcome. Learning about your interests can help us get you in touch with the people or activities that would appeal to you most.

Talking with the Pastor

Got a question about faith, theology, or about our Bloomington Normal church? FBC’s Pastor and Associate Minister are available during “The Gathering” and would love to meet you. Both would be glad to answer any questions you might have or just get to know a bit more about you. Don’t hesitate to drop in to say hello!

A Good First Step

Having coffee is a good first step for getting connected to our Bloomington Normal church, but we don’t want things to stop there. If you are interested in going deeper, consider coming to our guest class, Exploring God at FBC, where we talk about the beliefs of the American Baptist Church (among other topics) over lunch. If that does not work out, we would love to get to know you more personally by setting up a time to meet. To learn more about what God is doing at FBC, sign up for our church newsletter to see how you can participate, serve or get involved.
