If you’ve never worshipped with us before,
here’s what you should expect…
Here at Norwood Baptist Church RI, we want to help eliminate those "first-time jitters" by answering some of your questions up front.
We care about you, not what you’re wearing. We don’t care who you voted for in the last election or how many tattoos you have. We’re a church full of imperfect, broken people who are coming to know Jesus and serving others together, and regardless of your story, we believe you belong!
Nice people. We LOVE it when someone comes for the first time. Even by Facebook. But, we don’t always recognize first-time guests. So many of the people who come are still relatively new, so feel free to say, “This is my first time,” in the comment box. We will be sure to give you a "good morning" or "welcome".
Whether you feel confident to meet in the building or join us online, please help us get to know you by filling in the connect card below.
A casual atmosphere. We care about YOU, not what you’re wearing. If you are at home, wear something comfy. If you are in person, feel free to wear jeans.
Our dress code is simple: wear something.
A fun, safe environment for kids! Kids love it here at Norwood! From Sunday School to Worship we encourage parents to bring their children, let them learn all while having fun.
Children learning! We understand, some children may not be able to attend in person. Please contact the church office for further information in regards to online materials you can share with your child.
Practical teaching. Sermons will connect the Bible to everyday life. Music is lively and uplifting. During worship don’t be surprised when some people raise their hands as a sign of praise while singing, but don’t feel obligated to do so yourself. We create an atmosphere of freedom in our services. We also encourage you to participate in one of our adult classes. (click here for all the ways you can get involved in a bible study or life group)
Perfect people: Keep in mind....people are attending, and even leading Norwood Baptist Church RI who are not perfect.
In fact, perfect people are not allowed.
We’re a community of people who don’t have it all together but are discovering what it means to find life in Jesus, to follow him wholeheartedly, to break free from our past, and to walk in victory together.
That’s who we are.
Giving. As a guest, we don't expect you to contribute anything financially. However, if you feel moved to help like the members who call NBCRI home, there is a variety of ways to give. You can volunteer your time in a number of ways or you can financially support NBCRI. If you would like to give online, click here.
If you have questions about faith, becoming a Christian, or are looking for more information about the church, click here to sign up for a Welcome Party! This is where a person new to Norwood can hang out with some pretty cool people (including Pastor George) have lunch, take a tour etc. These parties happen every few months.
In-person & Live Streaming Worship 10:30 am Sunday mornings.
Live-streamed on Facebook & YouTube or our main website, www.norwoodbaptistchurchri.org.
In-person is held in our sanctuary. The entrance is located in the front of the building. Please use the double doors, to the left at the top of the steps. (When facing the front of the building on the street)
Currently, our mask policy is as follows:
We ask that you bring a mask to put on should someone you know/meet still needs to wear theirs. Other than that, feel free to do what is best for you.
So tell us about yourself. We would love to connect with you.
