Experience Life-Changing Relationships

You don't come to church, you are the church.

Nothing excites us more than helping you experience a life-changing relationship with Jesus Christ. It’s why our church exists. No matter your age or stage of life, we have a place for you here at First Baptist Church Kenner. Each ministry environment in our church has been created to engage, equip, and encourage an intimate relationship with God and others.

Join us this weekend at our worship service, or take part in one of our weekly events and Bible studies.

Plain and simple, our church is here for you, and we can’t wait to meet you.


Sundays at 11:00am in the Fellowship Hall
Livestream Available
(Small Group Bible Studies at 9:30am)

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. Hopefully the information on this page will help answer some of your questions before making a trip, but if there is anything else you’d like to know, please let us know!

We hope our church may be a place of

encouragement community growth accountability discipleship

Where Do I Go When I Arrive?

We gather for Worship at 11 AM. This service takes place in our Clay-Street Worship Center (while repairs from Hurricane Ida take place in our building located on Williams Blvd.), which is the building with the steep “A-frame” roof at 1313 Clay St. 

If you’re joining us for ConnectGroups at 9:30 AM (offered for all ages), head to our education building located at 1313 Clay St. as well. If you are unsure where to go at any point, you can ask for directions from one of our on-site volunteers when you arrive.  


What if I Have Kids?

During ConnectGroups, we have great activities and Bible studies for children of all ages. All of our volunteers have undergone extensive screening and have received training to keep your child as safe as possible.

We also offer care during the Worship Service for those in PreK-4 and younger. For any children joining you in the Worship Service, we’ll have activity and coloring pages available at the door.

 If you have any other questions about what steps we’re taking to keep your children safe and to make their experience enjoyable, please let us know.

What Should I Expect During the Worship Gathering?

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, piano, and other instruments, and we see the sermon as the central part of our worship experience.

What if I Don't Have a Bible?

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

What if I'd Like More Info or Have More Questions?

If you’re able to visit on a Sunday morning, stop by the Welcome Center. Our volunteers would love to talk with you and get you more information. Our staff would also love to meet you! They are usually easy to find before or after the service.

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