Visiting Our Church
Visiting a church for the first time can be a nerve-wracking experience. At Shorewood Baptist, we want to make you feel at ease. We think we’ve found something special at SBC. It’s more than a church; it’s a place where we feel “at home” and we want to welcome you to experience it also. We focus on the timeless basics: worshipping God, studying God’s Word, serving each other and seeking to make disciples of Jesus Christ.
Our main worship service is Sunday morning. Our service is traditional, but not in a stiff or formal way. There is no dress code for our services, and many people dress in both traditional church attire and more casual clothes. We try to keep the services as simple as possible, singing hymns (both old and new), receiving an offering, and hearing a Bible message. Our service lasts about one hour. We also meet at another location Sunday evenings at 6 PM and Wednesday evenings at 7 PM. Please feel free to contact us for more information.
At SBC, we think kids should experience church as much as possible. Here is how we make that work. For the first part of our worship service, our kids sit with the adults and participate in the congregational singing. After the song service, the kids are dismissed to an age appropriate children’s church. We also have a well-staffed nursery for children 3 and under, so that parents can be free to enjoy the service.
Our Sunday morning location is at the W B Orenic Intermediate School (5820 W Theodore Street, Plainfield 60586) located next door to the Troy Middle School. We are about a mile west of the Shorewood Walmart that’s on the corner of Theodore & Route 59. If you need directions, please don’t hesitate to contact us here, or call 779-379-5080.
