At 9:00 a.m., we have Equipping Classes, On-Campus Community Groups and a Place to Pray in the Sanctuary.
If you visit with us on a Sunday, you will find MacArthur Blvd Baptist Church to be filled with friendly, compassionate people who extend a warm welcome. We pray you will encounter the presence of God as we gather to worship the risen Christ. Sing and worship to a diverse blend of contemporary worship songs, gospel music, and hymns. The sermon will be Biblical in content and expositional in style.
WHAT TO EXPECT
It would be our pleasure to have you as our guest. We are passionate about being a church that is Christ-exalting, Biblically driven, multiethnic, and Kingdom advancing.
You’ll see some people wearing slacks or dresses, while others may have on jeans and tennis shoes. We invite you to stop by the coffee bar, and head to the Next Step desk in the foyer if you have any questions.
EQUIPPING CLASSES @ 9:00 a.m.
In order to better equip one another in core areas of the faith, we offer Equipping Classes that cover a variety of topics. Learn more.
Community Groups are smaller communities within the larger community of MacArthur Blvd. Community Groups equip people to live a life in community through Bible study, prayer, and fellowship. Off-campus groups meet at various times and locations, and on-campus groups meet on Sunday mornings. Learn more.
Preschool & Children
PRESCHOOL & CHILDREN
DURING THE SERVICE
Infants through Pre-K may be checked into a Preschool classroom while you, the parent/guardian, take part in Sunday morning activities at the church.
Our Kindergartners through 5th graders attend the Sunday Gathering with their families so they have the opportunity to grow in a Life of Worship and a Life in Community through the modeling of others and personal participation. Our church family understands that this is an active and sometimes noisy process with a valuable purpose. A “Growing in Worship” worksheet is available every week at the welcome stations and designed specifically for each Worship Gathering. If you feel like your kindergartner is not ready to grow through this experience, you may register them for two Community Group sessions.
Does your child have special needs that make participating in the Worship Gathering and Community Groups a unique challenge for your family? We want to provide a place of community that is worshipful for your family but know that there is not one specific plan to support that goal. Please contact Pastor Jamie (firstname.lastname@example.org) so you can work together to plan a meaningful family experience.
PRESCHOOL/CHILDREN COMMUNITY GROUPS
We offer age-appropriate Community Groups for children from birth through 12th grade.
Preschool Community Groups are at 9:00 a.m., followed by Worship Care at 10:30 a.m.
Kindergarteners through 5th graders are invited to attend a Community Group at 9:00 a.m. while a parent/guardian attends an Equipping Class, Adult Community Group or prayer time in the sanctuary.
The staff and volunteers in our children’s programs love kids and participate in child protection training and a background check. When you arrive, come to any of the check-in desks and a greeter will guide your family through the process.
*We value children’s participation in the entire worship service beginning in Kindergarten. Read the article, Families Growing in Worship Together, for more info.
