Welcome to First Baptist Church Birmingham! Our Sunday service is at 10:30 am in our sanctuary. When attending our service, you may park on Willits Street or in the parking lot to the north of the church building. You can enter the parking lot from Old Woodward or Bates Street. Please note that all parking in Birmingham is free on Sundays.
We have two main entrances into our building. Our most used entrance is on the north side of the building directly off the parking lot. Our other entrance is directly into the sanctuary through the big wooden double doors off Willits Street.
If you have children 2nd grade or younger, we recommend that you enter through the north entrance from the parking lot. Upon entering, follow the ramp down and to the right to find our nursery. Our nursery staff, who have all been approved with background checks, and will help get your children settled.
As you enter the sanctuary, a greeter will hand you a program to help you follow along with our service. As a first time guest, the church will donate $25 to a cause of your choosing on your behalf.
