WHAT TO EXPECT

(planning your first visit)



New to First Baptist Kenner?

We are excited to have you visit our church and would love the opportunity to meet you! We know going to new places can be a little scary. We pray our church may be a source of encouragement and community. This page will hopefully answer some of your questions before making a trip, but if there is anything else you’d like to know, please let us know!


For Bible Study at 9AM, just come to the Welcome Center in the middle of our Education/Administration building on 14th Street, a block off of Williams Blvd. Look for someone wearing an “Ask Me” name tag, and they will gladly show you where to go and introduce you to some of our members when you get there.

Our Worship Gathering at 10:30AM takes place in our Worship Center, which is the big building at 1400 Williams Blvd. Park around back (the lot off of Compromise St.), and follow the crowd into our foyer. At the door, you’ll be handed a bulletin with information about our church, including upcoming activities. Once inside, you will probably be greeted by someone with an “Ask Me” name tag, and you can go to the Welcome Center and pick up a folder that has some more really good information.

We have Bible Studies for all ages every Sunday morning at 9:00AM, including kids! We also provide childcare for babies through pre-k which continues during our Worship Gathering at 10:30AM. Childcare is located across the street in our Education building. Find someone with an “Ask Me” name tag, and they will be glad to show you the way.

Your child’s safety is very important to us. We use KidCheck to secure how your child is checked-in and checked-out of all activities at our church. Setting this up on your first visit is easy, and we have staff members to assist you in the process. All of our volunteers have had background checks and have been specifically trained to ensure the best care for your children.

Our Worship Gathering is relaxed but very intentional. We like to say that the sermon begins with the first note of the first song, and it ends with the last “Amen.” Everything we do is grounded in the Bible, so even our music and prayers reflect biblical themes and exalt Jesus Christ. We sing old and new songs accompanied by guitars, drums, piano, and other instruments, and we see the sermon as the central part of our worship experience.

If you don’t have a Bible, or if you have one in an old kind of English that is hard to understand, stop by our Welcome Center and ask for a Bible. We are happy to give you a brand new Bible. This is our gift to you.

If you have any additional questions, please feel free to call us at 504-466-5381, email us at church@fbckenner.org, or use this contact form. We would love to talk with you.
