What to Expect

In total, a First Baptist Church of Downey service is about an hour in length. Services begin with the Worship team leading the church in music – song lyrics are projected onto the screens so you can sing along and/or engage with worship however you feel most comfortable. After the music portion of the service is complete, our pastor will come out to share an encouraging and hope-filled message about Jesus.

What About My Kids

We believe that kids should have a blast at church every single week, we make this a priority. The other thing we make a priority is your children’s safety. Children are invited to Worship with their family at the start of Service. Before the sermon begins, children K – 5th grade are invited to join the KidzChurch leaders in the lobby. Parents are asked to pick up their children in Room 101 (Choir Room) after service.
