The above photo features the sanctuary pews at the First Baptist Church of Greensboro. First Baptist is located on Friendly Avenue, just west of downtown. Situated between the Westerwood and College Hill neighborhoods and close to housing near the baseball park, First Baptist is in a perfect location to attract new members. Indeed, membership is on the rise.
All is quiet in this photo, but will be filled with worshipers today, Easter Sunday. People will don their Sunday best, bring a flower to share, and a bell to ring every time the word "Alleluia" is spoken or sung. If you are looking for a place to celebrate Easter, service starts promptly at 10:30. The senior pastor, Alan Sherouse, is under forty years old and most of the staff is youthful (or young at heart). So, if you are seeking a traditional, Christian church, First Baptist hopes that you will consider them. They welcome the diversity in God's world, put Christian goals before religious partisanship, and are proud of having a multi-generational congregation. Happy Easter!
