Frequently Asked Questions
What's the music like?
Our music is a mix of traditional songs and contemporary Christian music.
What should I wear?
Some people dress casually in jeans or capris, while others wear a dress or a coat and tie. There's no "dress code" at FBC Mahomet. Come as you are and you will be welcomed!
What are the people like?
FBC is a friendly place, and includes people from all walks of life. People will greet you and introduce themselves. After worship, we have a time of food and conversation, what we call a "fellowship" time, and invite everyone to stay and get to know others in the church.
How long are the services?
We begin at 10:45 am on Sunday morning and end before noon. People often stay for fellowship until 12:30 or 1:00 pm, enjoying some laughs, good conversation, and food.
Do you have childcare?
We have an excellent nursery with qualified childcare workers to care for children under the age of 5 during the worship service. All of our caregivers are trained and experienced and have gone through background checks.
Do you have something for elementary school children?
Children ages 5-10 are asked to participate in the beginning of the worship service, and after the children's message, are dismissed for Children's Church where they will take part in activities and a Bible lesson. Our trained and experienced staff will meet you in the education wing in the back of the church after the service to reconnect with your children. You're welcome to join them for Children's Church to get a feel for what your children are learning.
Where are you located?
FBC is located at 402 S. Elm in Mahomet. We're right behind First Mid-Illinois Bank on Route 150 (Oak Street) and behind the Mobil Super Pantry at the corner of Route 47 and Route 150.
Where do I park?
We have handicap parking on the south side of the building. You can park on all four sides of the church and in the bank lot.
