What to Expect
My First Time to Visit
It can be a nerve racking experience to visit a church for the first time,
whether you're used to church or not. You have to navigate the parking lot,
find the right entrance and learn how to get through the hallways to the right
place. Then there's the awkwardness of all the new people.
Here's what you can expect at Hazelwood Baptist Church -- people just like you.
Our church is made up of young and old, blue collar and white collar, various age
groups and all kinds of different ethnicities and cultures. We have people that are
mature in their faith, new in their faith, curious about faith and those that have not
yet come to faith. In short, we have all kinds of different people because well we
are all different and that's what is so beautiful about creation and the church. We
are fearfully and wonderfully made by God and our subtle differences allow us to be
one uniquely constructed church, fulfilling different roles and ministries to the
glory of God.
So, even if you are a little nervous about meeting new people,
come and be different with us to the glory of God.
What do people wear?
Clothes of course, the whole fig leaf thing didn't work out well. When you come to
HBC you will find some wearing suits, some business casual, but most dress casual
and comfortable. We feel that the inward preparation for the service is much more
important than the outward preparation. So, come dressed up or dressed down but
please no fig leaves.
Where to Park
We try to make parking easy for our guests. As you enter our
parking lot, that faces Howdershell Road, you will find guest
parking close to the Worship Center entrance. Upon entrance, in
the Worship Center, there will be greeters to help you find a seat
or answer any questions you may have about the church and
