What To Expect
Where Do I Park?
We have a parking area specifically for guests in front of our welcome center entrance. When you enter from Kingston Pike, pull straight onto Henry Chiles St and Visitor Parking is immediately on your right, to the side of the sanctuary building. Follow the signs upon arriving!
What Do I Wear?
Some folks at Central Bearden wear business-casual attire, or dress up, on Sundays. Others wear everything from jeans and t-shirts to dresses and jackets. You are encouraged to dress as you feel comfortable!
What Happens in Bible Study?
Our 9 AM Bible Study hour provides classes for every stage of life. Children and Students are grouped by age and grade. College and beyond are divided by stage of life. They spend their time studying scripture and discussing its application in our lives. Many have fellowship at the beginning or end of their meeting. To find a group that fits your needs, visit our Connect tab or Contact Us!
What Happens in Worship?
10:30 AM Sunday Worship is a multi-generational gathering of music, scripture and prayer as well as a message from the church's pastor, Dr. Wade Bibb. We are meeting in-person and via livestream. Worship typically lasts an hour. We sing new and old songs with lyrics projected on screens, or available where you sit in a hymnal or on your electronic device. Our worship leader, choir, and worship band are all part of leading songs of worship. The pastor’s messages often follow a themed series or focal book of the Bible, and notes alongside visual points are provided on the screens.
What Do My Kids Do on Sundays?
Our Children's Ministry provides outstanding Bible study groups at 9 AM for preschoolers and kids through grade 5. For the church's Sunday worship gathering, young kids are invited to go to Kids Celebration about halfway through the worship service, where they enjoy a continued age-appropriate worship gathering (first 3 Sundays of each month only). Parents pick up kids immediately after worship. For teenagers in middle school and high school, the Journey Room on the top floor is the place to be for fellowship and learning with other students, led by trained youth ministers. Students attend the church's multi-generational worship gathering at 10:30 AM.
