Worship at First Baptist Church Marietta
Each of us grows closer to God when we pray, when we give and when we spend time each day reading the Bible. My hope is through Sunday School and Bible Study classes on Sundays at 9:45 and through worship at 8:48am and 10:58am, we will move through the scripture together, grow closer to God and closer to one another as we fall in love with the living word of God.
Let's allow God's story to transform our story in 2018.
Classic, Traditional Worship - 10:58
We present a hymn-based, "traditional" worship service at 10:58am on Sunday mornings in our sanctuary. The word "traditional" means different things to each individual. For us it simply means hymn-based music presented by a choir and instruments. We believe that our service presents a fresh approach to traditional worship: retaining the grandeur of a traditional worship service presented at a carefully prepared pace using a variety of instruments, sounds and techniques in the service.
The service is led musically by our Minister of Worship, Dr. Paul Hill, along with our Worship Choir, the First Orchestra, along with Mr. Harris Wheeler on our grand piano, with a select list of musicians to play our 46-rank Reuter pipe organ. Presenting music found in our hymnal, "Celebrating Grace," the service features choral and orchestral anthems, vocal and instrumental soloists and ensembles, and occasionally we are led by our children. Dr. Hill leads the service music and the sermon is presented by our senior pastor, Dr. Bill Ross.
We welcome you to either service: traditional or contemporary. Both services are led by individuals who truly want you to experience God when you gather in our church for worship.
Contemporary/Acoustic - "848 Worship"
At 8:48am each Sunday morning in the Chapel, we present a contemporary service for those who feel that the current praise-and-worship choruses speak to them. We believe that there is not any one, exclusive musical style to worship God and as such, we have a service that presents the same principles of worship but in a more contemporary, even acoustic-folk music style. Using visuals to guide the worshipers as well as an inspired sermon by our senior pastor, Dr. Bill Ross, this service is growing in not only the number of attendees but in its impact on our community.
