Plan a Visit

Come Visit Us This Weekend

Visiting a church for the first time can feel intimidating and awkward, so we promise not to single you out as a visitor. Instead, you’ll be warmly welcomed by our team and those who call Coats Baptist “home.” When you walk in, one of our volunteers will hand you a bulletin so you know what to expect during the service, and they’ll help you find a comfortable seat. During the service, you’re welcome to participate or simply observe—and that goes for the offering time, too.

What to Expect

Each of our services are a bit different in style. But they all include music, prayer, and teaching you can apply to your everyday life.

Frequent Questions

How long are the services?

Our services last approximately 75 minutes every Sunday. We start with a time of live worship music, then go into an engaging message from Pastor Neal.

During the service, feel free to participate however you’d like. If you want to sit down and listen, feel free to do so. If you want to stand or raise your hands to sing, you can do that too.

Are the services different?

Our 8:30am service is led by a choir accompanied by a piano and organ and tends to sing songs from the hymnal.

While you’ll still hear hymns at the 11am & 6pm services, they are led by a live band and sing modern worship songs. Aside from the music, the service order and messages are identical at each morning service.

Pastor Neal does preach a different message during the evening service. Seasonal worship nights and events are also held on Sunday evenings.

What do I wear?

You’ll see a mix of all clothing styles at every service, from work-wear to weekend-wear. So please feel welcome to dress comfortably—whatever that means for you.

Can I attend if I'm ___________?

Yes. Fill in the blank with whatever you’re worried about: single, divorced, gay, straight, white, black, addicted, hurting, poor, super-successful, a nonbeliever, atheist, Tar Heel fan, etc. At Coats Baptist, we welcome you to attend as you are, so come visit us this Sunday!
