What are Worship Services Like?




  • Worship is our response to God's revelation of who He is and what He has done.  In other words, as we discover more and more about God and experience more and more what He does is our lives, our best response is...WORSHIP!  At FBC, we come together each week to express our love, admiration, gratitude and devotion to God.  We'd love to have you as our guest as we worship the Lord together!



  • We have two Sunday morning worship services from which to choose:  one at 8:30 a.m. and the other at 10:45 a.m.  The services are pretty much the same so choose the one that best fits your schedule.  Our worship services blend the comfort and familiarity of traditional hymns with the excitement of contemporary worship songs through both instrumental and vocal music.  Our praise team, Exaltation, leads worship in the 8:30 service and the Sanctuary Choir leads at the 10:45 service.  Our Praise Band leads both services the first Sunday of each month.  We also have a variety of worship soloists and small groups that bring special selections as offerings of praise to our Lord.





  • Members of FBC Effingham also worship by giving, and through prayer and Bible study.


We have Sunday school classes for everyone from babies to senior adults.  These Bible studies meet at 9:30 a.m.  To find out more, click HERE.


While we encourage you to give as the Lord leads, we don't expect or pressure visitors to put something in the offering plate.  The appropriate time and amount to give is between you and God.  


We encourage you to use our prayer room.  It is a small, comfortable place for some quiet time with God.  It is located between the main office and the child-care area.  Ask someone at the Visitor Center for help locating it.  To submit a prayer request, click HERE.          


Sound Enhancement Devices

Assisted Listening Devices are available during the Worship Service.  For assistance, please inquire at the Visitor Center just inside the main entrance.



Sign Language Interpretation

A sign language specialist is here to interpret our first service (8:30 am) on the 2nd and 3rd Sundays of the month.
