What Can I Expect on My First Visit?
You can’t miss our growing campus
at the intersection of Highway 64 and Osment Road. You will recognize it by the digital sign located on Highway 64. There is special parking for all visitors up near the building. Once inside the foyer, you will find an Information Center where our members will help direct you around the campus.
Most adults attend our regular worship service where they enjoy the beautiful and inspiring music of the choir, orchestra, ensembles, and soloists. The music is always followed by a clear, helpful, and challenging Bible message from Pastor Coley. There is also a service for the children at the same time as the main worship service. Also at 10 am, we have Bible Study Fellowship classes for all teenagers and adults. These classes are smaller group settings where you are invited to meet people, enjoy perhaps some coffee and donuts, and hear a teaching lesson more directly applicable to your life-stage. The best way to get to know people at Shenandoah Baptist Church is to visit one of these adult Bible classes. Sunday school classes are also available for all children at 10 am.

How Do I Get There?
Where Do I Take My Children?
Starting with the nurseries,
there is something special for every age child. 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. Our campus has several buildings. We would like to help you find the appropriate nurseries, classes, and services for every person in your family. Our greeters and ushers are located around campus as well as in the lobby of the main worship center and will gladly help direct and even escort you to the right place.
