What to Expect

What it's like
Smyrna First is a community of people who have been in this town all their lives, alongside many folks who are new to this area.  You will find great diversity in our worship--tried and true traditional to modern, energetic services.  You will hear biblical messages that apply to your life.  So, we invite you to come on in...find a seat and make yourself at home.

What to wear
We invite you to wear whatever you feel comfortable in!  Typically, those in the 8:30 service dress casually, while those in 11:00 service are a little more formal.  Either way, there is no actual "dress code" and you will be welcomed regardless of your attire!

What to do with the kids
We have a childcare available for infants through 2 years old.  Our children have a special time during worship just for them.  Young children (3 years-Kindergarten) are also invited to attend "children's church" for age appropriate activities during the sermon.
