What to expect
How Do I Get to SMBC
What can I expect on my first visit?
Most adults attend one worship service where they enjoy the beautiful and inspiring congregational music and ensembles. The music is always followed by a clear, helpful, and challenging Bible message from Pastor Marshall. This service is a little over one hour in length.
Also, at 9:30 am, there is an Adult Bible Class. This class meets in the main auditorium and is followed by a wonderful time of personal connection with some coffee and donuts.
Where do I take my children?
Beginning with excellent nurseries, there is something special for children of all ages. At every service, there are safe, clean, and highly-staffed nurseries for children three years old and under.
For children four years old through sixth grade, there are fun, friendly, and Bible-centered classes. These classes are staffed with trained, friendly, and well-qualified teachers and helpers who will make church exciting and memorable for your child.
What about my teens?
At 9:30 am, Junior High and High School meet in the main auditorium for age-appropriate class, and at 10:30 am, they may attend the worship service with their families.
Am I expected to participate in the offering?
How should I dress?
There is no dress code at Shadow Mountain Baptist Church for members or guests. Our ministry leaders and much of our church family dress in more traditional “Sunday” dress; however, our main goal is that you would feel welcome and comfortable on your visit here at SMBC.

Whether you’re new to the area and looking for a church home, or if it’s been a long time since you’ve attended church at all, we hope you enjoy your first visit to Shadow Mountain!
We exist to serve you and your family, and we are looking forward to meeting you personally. Our desire is that you’ll feel right at home from the very first moment you step onto campus. Let us know how we can serve you better, and we look forward to meeting you this Sunday!
