At Seattle First Baptist Church we regard worship as the most important thing we do. We come together every Sunday to celebrate God's love and forgiveness in our lives. Through reading the scriptures, singing the hymns, and listening to the sermon we attempt to discern not only how God has acted in the past, but how God is acting now in our time. As we seek to bring our lives into reconciliation with God's purposes, as demonstrated in the life of Jesus Christ, we seek to be agents of healing to the world. From our worship comes our mission to take God's love into the world and engage ourselves in the hard struggles and difficult issues of our day.
It is also in and through worship that we find spiritual community and offer support and compassion to one another. That community is not closed. It is open to all who wish to enter it.
Every Sunday morning members and friends gather to worship through prayer, song and sermon. The first Sunday of each month the ritual of Communion is observed, and all are welcome to take part. Special services and events are scheduled during Advent, Christmas, Lent and Easter.
Young Children's Center and Nursery
Care for Infants, Toddlers and Preschoolers occurs in our Young Children's Center and Nursery located near Fellowship hall and a short distance from the Sanctuary. All parents are given a pager so that our two professional nursery providers can make contact if a child has a special need during the worship service. The Young Children's Center and Nursery is bright, secure and newly equipped and has a separate room for infants.
The Sanctuary Choir
The Seattle First Baptist Church Sanctuary Choir consists of approximately 60+ volunteer singers who enliven worship with a variety of music.
The Sanctuary Choir presents anthems during Sunday worship services throughout the year from September through July. Additionally, it offers recital performances each year, often with orchestra.
Selected performances by the Sanctuary Choir are available online for your listening enjoyment.
The Children and Youth Music Program
One Sunday a month our elementary age children lead the congregation in a piece of music for worship. The children practice most Sunday morning. You will find more information about programs for our children under the Children and Youth education section of our web site.
