Find out what to expect at Whitesburg and get answers to some common questions!
Who is your Pastor?
Where is your church located, and what do North Campus, South Campus and Pulaski Pike Campus mean?
How do I find a LIFE Group class, and where do I take my children?
Commit your life to Jesus Christ. This means that you have accepted or want to accept Jesus Christ as your Savior.
If you are coming as a new Christian or from another denomination whose view of baptism is different from the New Testament baptism as practiced by Southern Baptists.
If you are a member of another Southern Baptist church, you can request that your membership be transferred.
If you are a member of another denomination, but have previously received Jesus Christ and were baptized by immersion as an act of obedience, you can join by statement.
When can I join?
Come to the front during the invitation which is extended at the end of most services where one of our deacons will speak with you.
What is your purpose statement?
Our purpose is to know Jesus Christ and to make Him known. We desire to know Jesus through the Word and worship, to exalt the Savior through education and evangelism and to mature believers to minister and be on mission.
How can my teenager connect at Whitesburg?
Our student ministry (for grades 6-12) is packed with high-energy events that focus on having a personal relationship with Jesus Christ. From camps to discipleship classes, your teenager will have many activities to choose from!
What do you have to offer my kids?
We are the place for kids! While you’re in your LIFE Group or worship, kids enjoy special classes with songs, stories and games. Awana meets on Sunday nights and is focused on building a Biblical foundation for your children. During the week, we offer ballet classes, Upward sports and martial arts classes.
What does your Recreational Center (ROC) offer?
The ROC offers a walking track, weight room, fitness classes, upwards sports for kids, an indoor playground and the Caring Place Cafe. Check out their web site for more information: wbccares.org/get_connected/recreation.
What should I wear to church?
From business dress to super-casual, we have it all! Please wear whatever you feel comfortable in. Generally, the people who attend the 9:30 am service will wear suits and dresses, while those attending the 11:00 am service wear more casual clothes.
What kind of music do you have?
9:30 am Blended Traditional Worship
Join us as we sing the great hymns of the faith that have been part of church life for decades. Also, we will continue to blend in the best of some of the newer music. Our choir and orchestra will lead the way in this inspirational time of worship for all ages.
11:00 am Contemporary Worship
This service will be led by a band and will feature some of the latest contemporary Christian music as well as new arrangements of familiar songs. Other than the same message by our Pastor, this service will be a refreshingly new experience. This is a relational time of worship for all ages.
