We are so glad you came!
Stepping into an unfamiliar place for the first time can be a little intimidating, and maybe even uncomfortable for some people – especially when it’s a church.
We get that and have prepared our weekend services to be enjoyable and hassle-free. When you visit FBC Umatilla, you can expect to feel welcomed and accepted from the moment you step through the door. When you first walk in, you’ll probably notice people from all different backgrounds, generations, and walks of life – maybe even some people you know. If you come in the main doors under the covered entry, you’ll be in what we refer to as our Event Center. Feel free to grab a cup of coffee while you wait for our next service to start (you can bring it into service with you). While in the event center or the worship center, volunteers will always be close-by to answer any questions and make you feel welcome any way they can.
If you have kids, you can check them in at one of our Check-In stations (just look for the giant Kids sign on the wall), where dedicated volunteers will help ensure that your child will be safe while experiencing a fun, age-appropriate experience. Our check-in and check-out process help us ensure the safety of every child while they attend our incredible Kids ministry.
Once in the worship center, you will be encouraged by our passionate live-band and worship team, relevant and inspiring presentations of the Gospel, and life-changing prayer times. You will notice that FBC Umatilla is a contemporary-blended, up-beat, and simply put, fun. More importantly, we hope you’ll see that it’s a Christ-centered church. That’s something we never apologize for – our church revolves around the message of Jesus and works hard at communicating it in a way that is authentic and life-giving.
All in all, what you can expect at FBC Umatilla is pretty much what you could expect when visiting friends – to be respected, taken-care-of and to leave feeling that you’re glad you came.
