When we Meet
8:00 am and 10:30 am
Awesome! We’re so excited to meet you! We want to make your visit as comfortable as possible, so here are some answers to questions
you may have about West Plains First Baptist Church.
What times are services?
We have services Sunday morning at 8:00 am & 10:30 am and Sunday evenings at 5:00 pm. We also have Sunday School Bible Study on Sunday mornings at 9:15 am.
Where are you located?
We are located at 202 Walnut St. West Plains MO, 65775. If you turn onto East Main Street off the square, we are the first turn on the left.
Our main services are in our main campus, which is the largest building with a red roof and two flag poles in front. We have two entrances; however, our main entrance is the two glass doors between the two pillars. Our secondary entrance
is beneath the green awning.
What happens in a service?
Typically, people will begin to arrive about 15 minutes before service begins. We will have a 5 minute countdown before time to begin. Services include videos, prayers, offering, worship music led by a band, and messages from the Bible. Our services are both celebrative and reflective, and people enjoy worshipping together through dynamic music and preaching.
What do I wear?
There is no dress code at FBC, anyone is welcome no matter their appearance. Jeans are worn just as often as dresses.
Will I be expected to give?
We take an offering every Sunday morning before our time of worship. Our offerings help us keep our facilities running and reach out to our community. However, there is no obligation to give, especially if you are a guest. We are just excited that you are with us and have no expectations for you.
What do you believe/teach?
We believe that scriptures are the spoken word of God, so in his sermons, Pastor John will typically go verse by verse through scripture.
Do you have any ministry opportunities?
We have several ministries for individuals here at FBC West Plains looking for an opportunity to be the hands and feet of Christ reaching out into their community. Check out more information about our ministries by clicking
