We continue to hold limited capacity in-person services while also providing an online worship experience for your safety and well-being. See our Sunday schedule below.
Morning Worship | 9:30 or 11am
Join us at 9:30am OR 11am on campus as we offer two identical worship services each Sunday morning. We encourage you to consider the 11am service as it is typically less crowded.
Evening Worship | 6pm
There will also be a different evening worship service at 6pm. Pastor Neal is currently walking through a study of 1 Timothy.
We understand that you and your family may not yet but comfortable returning to our campus. That’s fine! Our 9:30am and 6pm services will continue to be live streamed on YouTube, Facebook, and at coatsbaptist.com/watch-live. These services will be archived and available at any time on all three platforms:

Frequently Asked Questions
1. Will I be safe?
We are prepared for you for your visit. The worship space and any other public spaces are clean and will be cleaned before and after services. We seek to provide a safe, convenient, and worshipful experience for you and your family. If you feel comfortable, we feel comfortable.
2. Where do I go?
There will be signs and a welcome team directing you from the road to the worship center. There will be two main entrances/exits to the worship center: the double doors on the west and east sides of the church.
3. What about my kids?
As you enter, children in pre-K through 5th grade will receive a worship guide and crayons just for them to enhance their worship experience. We want families worshiping together — with a little peace of mind.
We are excited to welcome children back into our nursery! At this time, we are accepting children ages 1 to 4, and we are only accepting 10 kids per service. If one service is full, consider signing up for a different service.

If you have any unanswered questions, email email@example.com.
4. Do I have to wear a mask?
While we as a church will not mandate face coverings, we do encourage you to wear one as a means of precaution and kindness. As you enter, fellowship, and exit, please keep your face covering on. You’re welcome to leave it on or take it off as you’re comfortable at your seat while physically distanced from other families. Our leaders and welcome team will be wearing face coverings with the exception of when leading from the platform and distanced from one another.
Let’s also show kindess and love to our neighbor by refraining from handshakes and hugs at this time. Upon entering the worship center and applying hand sanitizer, keep on walking and then find a seat. Try to keep one pew, or at least 6 ft, between you and others not in your household.
