I’m not a baptist can I still attend?
Absolutely. You can attend whatever your faith, or if you have none! When you come for the first time please be sure to let the greeters know you are a newcomer, and fill out a yellow card that you will be given by the greeters.
Is there a dress code?
No. The Bible isn’t specifically concerned about how we look on the outside or about the clothes we wear when we worship God. Some people prefer to dress more formally as a symbol of respect. But generally the guideline is to be sensible and wear clothes that will not distract others.
