Walking into a building you’ve never been in, full of people you’ve never met, not knowing where to go… are you sweating yet? Well, it doesn’t have to be scary. We want to help make your first time at Bluff First a great experience. We think you’ll find our team to be friendly, down-to-earth, and excited to have you with us! 



What are services like?

Our Sunday Morning service is 75 minutes long or less. Our services are casual, fun, powerful, and practical.

If you arrive a little early, you’ll have time to grab some free coffee, check kids in, and find a seat.

Services begin with live worship music from our band. Lyrics are on screen for reading or singing along. We usually read a Bible verse out loud together.

After we sing, one of our pastors will come and share a hope-filled Gospel message about following Jesus. We like to laugh, learn, encourage and challenge.

Following a time to respond to the message (with worship, private prayer, communion, or prayer with leaders) someone will wrap up the service with announcements and final instruction. 

When you’re our guest, we don’t want anything FROM you, we just want God’s best FOR you! We promise not to embarrass you. Just enjoy your time here. 





What are the options for kids?

We believe church should be fun no matter what age you are, and at Kids First, we make this a priority. 

Children are welcome to sit in on the adult service with you (and we have coloring sheets + sermon notes for kids available) but we recommend the fun experiences designed just for them in both of our services.
We have 4 childcare rooms available for babies, toddlers, and pre-schoolers. We have a cry room in the back with toys, comfy chairs, service audio, and private nursing stations. We also have full kids church services for pre-K and elementary-aged children.
All of our kids environments are staffed with background-checked workers.

We have a kids check-in/out process in our lobby.
If it’s your first Sunday, you could give yourself a few extra minutes to get them registered and checked in, BUT even if you’re running late, no worries! You can also speed it up by pre-registering your family.
Junior high and older will probably be more comfortable in the adult service on Sundays, as well as Bluff First Youth on Wednesday Nights.

Everyone is friendly and welcoming. The pastors explain things so that everyone can understand. 
Bluff First has taught me about showing Christ’s love through actions.
It’s also “church made fun” as one of my kids have said. If the doors are open my children want to be there!
It’s more than a church to my family, it’s a feeling of home!”
