Visiting Mansfield Baptist Temple
Visiting any church for the very first time can be a challenging experience. Where to go? What to wear? What time to show up? What’s here for my kids? What can I expect? These and many more questions surface. You can expect your first visit to Mansfield Baptist Temple will be refreshing, friendly, and enjoyable for your whole family. We want you to experience inspiring music, helpful teaching and preaching, friendly people, and a place where you feel welcome and “at home!”Here are a few answers to your questions and what you might expect on your first visit.
When are your services?
Our main worship services are Sunday mornings at 8:45 and 11:00. Both services are identical with the same Bible message and music program, so choose the one that best fits your schedule.
- 8:45 AM & 11:00 AM Morning Worship Services
- 10:00 AM Sunday School Classes for All Ages
- 5:30 PM Evening Service
- 7:00 PM Wednesday Night Prayer Meeting *Teen Impact & KIT (Kidz in Training) Klub
What can I expect on my first visit?
You can’t miss our campus at the intersection of Stewart & Ashland Road. We are also located at the intersection of Route 30 & Ashland Road (42). The main entrance is on Stewart Road, and you’ll recognize it by the sign located at the main entrance. Once you park and you approach the main worship center, one of our hospitality greeters will meet you and direct you to the right classes and services. They can also answer other questions you may have.
Most adults attend one worship service where they enjoy the beautiful and inspiring music of the choir, congregation, special groups, and soloists. The music is always followed by a clear, helpful, and challenging Bible message from Pastor Kurtz. This service is a little over one hour in length. Also, during the 10:00 hour, there are Adult Sunday School Classes. These classes are smaller group settings where you are invited to meet people, enjoy perhaps some coffee and donuts, and hear a teaching lesson more directly applicable to your life-stage. The best way to get to know people at Mansfield Baptist Temple is to visit one of these adult Bible fellowships.
Where do I take my children?
Starting with excellent nurseries, there is something special for every age child. At every service there are safe, clean, and highly staffed nurseries for children two years old and under. For the infants, mothers will receive a pager so that the nursery attendants can easily contact you if there is a need. For children four years old through sixth grade there are fun, friendly, and Bible-centered classes. These classes are staffed with trained, friendly, and well-qualified teachers and helpers who will make church exciting and memorable for your child. Our campus has several levels to it, which to a guest can seem overwhelming at first. It’s not as complicated as it looks, and we would like to help you find the appropriate nurseries, classes, and services for every person in your family. Our greeters and ushers are located around campus as well as in the lobby of the main worship center and will gladly help direct and even escort you to the right place.
How should I dress?
There is not a dress code at Mansfield Baptist Temple for members or guests. Our ministry leaders and many of our church family dress in more traditional “Sunday” dress; however, our main goal is that you would feel welcome and comfortable on your visit here at Mansfield Baptist!
Am I Expected to Participate in the Offering?
No. We don’t invite you to Mansfield Baptist Temple for your offering. We want our service to be a gift to you. We hope you will find in this place a warm family spirit, truth from God’s Word, and a place where you can grow in God’s grace. Please don’t feel any obligation to participate in the offering as a guest.
If there’s something we missed on this list, just give us a call, fill out our contact form, or ask someone when you arrive. Whether you’re new to the area and looking for a church home, or if it’s been a long time since you’ve attended church at all, we hope your first visit at Mansfield Baptist Temple will be awesome! We exist to serve you and your family, and we are looking forward to meeting you personally. We hope you’ll feel right at home from the very first moment you step onto campus! Let us know how we can serve you better, and we hope to meet you this Sunday!
