Christian Worship

Sunday Morning

Sunday morning worship at First Baptist is contextual. That is, the elements of the service are regularly and intentionally planned to connect the content of the service to the church’s strong engagement with our community.

Sunday morning worship services are at 8:30 a.m. and 11:00 a.m.

See more about our worship.

Wednesday Evening

Richmond's First Baptist Church meets on Wednesday Evenings for food and fellowship. After supper is served, our evenings feature engaging guest speakers and programs that supplement our Sunday morning worship. Youth Group activities and choir practices are also held. Child care is available after supper.

See more about Wednesday evenings.

Worship Online

Worship services are streamed live on Sundays at 8:30 and 11:00 a.m. Eastern Time.

TV Broadcast on WRIC Channel 8

Our Sunday morning worship service is broadcast each week at 11:00 a.m. Eastern Time (on a 1 week delay to allow time for editing, graphics insertion and sound mixing) on WRIC Channel 8 in the Richmond, VA viewing area. Please feel free to download the bulletin for the broadcast service so you may follow the order of worship. We are LIVE on TV on Palm Sunday, Easter and the four Sundays of Advent.


The Worship Ministry at First Baptist Church exists to discover and implement imaginative ways to engage people in “loving God with all of their heart.” The nucleus of this ministry is formed around the church at worship on Sunday mornings. 

Our choirs include singers and instrumentalists of all ages. The children, youth, and adults are all regularly a part of Sunday morning worship and in seasonal concerts. Many of our groups perform regularly in the community, regionally and around the world. Some of our choirs have performed in places such as Italy, Mexico, Austria, The Czech Republic, Romania, the White House and Carnegie Hall.

Come join us in the Worship Ministry as we “love God with all of our hearts” …through music.
