What to know before you Visit

While we'd be thrilled to have you join our family, there are some things you need to know before you come. If any of these things causes you questions or concern, call us and we'll talk about it!

  • First of all, we're pretty casual around here.  There's no need to dress up, unless you want to.  Some folks will be in "fancy dress" on Sundays, but others will be in jeans.  Wear whatever makes you comfortable; as long as you're dressed, you're OK!
  • Parking is easy...There's a lot across the street from the Sanctuary; you can't miss it. If you're visiting, though, there's a spot for you right out front, on Rountree Street.  If you need parking for the disabled, you'll need to turn off Vertia into the alley, where you'll see plenty of reserved parking and a ramp.  At the bottom of the ramp you'll find an entrance that will lead you to the elevator. Please remember to park on the FBCM side of the alley; the spaces on the other side are reserved for the Metter Primitive Baptist Church members and visitors.
  • When you visit, we want you to feel comfortable.  You won't be asked to stand up and say anything, you won't be pressured to put money in the offering, and you can sit anywhere you want.
  • During the Morning Worship service, younger children have the opportunity to leave the sanctuary for Children's Church.  Older children and youth usually stay for the entire service, but they are welcome to participate in our children's and student ministries. Find out more about scheduled activities here
  • We are unapologetically Christian.  Our Pastors preach from the Bible, our teachers teach from the Bible.  We believe that the Bible is the holy, inspired Word of God, and we will not be swayed from this conviction.  We have experienced the grace and love of Christ, and in gratitude we strive to be obedient to His will; this includes honoring and living according to His Word.
  • Although we are completely autonomous, we are a Southern Baptist Church.  That means we're affiliated with the Southern Baptist Convention, and the Georgia Baptist Mission Board.  We contribute to both through the Cooperative Program and various mission efforts such as the Annie Armstrong and Lottie Moon mission offerings, and adhere to the Baptist Faith and Message of 2000.
