My First Visit
Help for Guests and Visitors
What time do you worship? We invite you to worship with us at 10:30 am each Sunday.
How do I get to the church? North Lanier Baptist Church is located at 829 Atlanta Highway, 1/2 mile south of the intersection of Highway 20 and Highway 9 in Cumming, Georgia (exit 14 off of 400).
How do I dress? Some folks wear their "Sunday best" while others wear casual and comfortable clothes on Sunday morning. Whether you wear dress pants or jeans, you won't feel out of place. Wednesday evenings are always casual. Don't worry about what you wear - just come expecting to be welcomed warmly into our worship services and Bible Studies!
What do I bring? If you have a Bible, bring it with you. It will help you to follow along in worship and in Small Group Bible Study. If you don't have a bible, don't worry, we have plenty! If you are a guest, don't worry about bringing an offering.
When do I need to arrive? To allow plenty of time to reach the Worship Center, you should arrive ten to fifteen minutes prior to the worship or bible study time. We also have Small Group Bible Study Classes at 9 am. In order for us to help you find a class that best suits your needs, stop by the Welcome Desk and we'll help you find a class that fits for you. You may want to allow yourself ten additional minutes for this as well. If you have children, it also takes around five minutes to register your child with our Children's Department (safety is our top priority). Be sure to arrive with enough time to register each child and still have plenty of time to get to your class or to worship.
Where do I park? You may park anywhere you wish, but we reserve plenty of parking for guests right by the Welcome Center entrance. Handicap parking is also available in the upper parking lots. The lower parking lot is largely used by parents of preschoolers.
Where do my children go? North Lanier has an excellent preschool and childrens ministry. Greeters at the children's entrance as well as the Welcome Center just outside the Worship Center will assist you in getting your children to their classes or departments. The preschool and children's classes meet downstairs.
What about security? We take child security seriously. Each child in the preschool department will be registered before entering a Bible Study class, and both you and your child will be assigned a security tag. Your tag will be presented when picking up your child. Just plan on taking a few additional minutes when you first arrive to register your child in the Children's Department. This way, we know your children's allergies, needs and who will be picking up the child from his/her class. We want to take care of your family the same way you would.
What about my teenagers? Our youth always have a great time. There are small groups designed just for your teenager each Sunday morning at 9 am. Our teenagers also gather on Sunday nights at 5 pm. With inspiring worship, challenging messages, and fun games, they are guaranteed to make lots of friends and want to come back!
How do I find a small group that fits me? All of our small groups take place at 9 am on Sundays. Just go in the main Welcome Center area and the friendly folks at the Welcome Desk will be glad to help you find a class that fits you best. Perhaps you are coming with a spouse, or without, we have plenty of classes for men, women and even co-ed classes. It doesn't matter what age, or stage in life, you may be, we have a class for you! Don't be shy about visiting a class for the first time, our friendly folks will be sure to make you feel like family right away!
