Coffee Talk

First Sundays each month at 10 a.m.

If you are new, or newish, to FBCD, we invite you to come on over to the Parlor at 10 a.m. on the first Sunday of the month to get to know more about our church, our staff, and our vision. Come on over for an informal time of coffee and conversation with one or more of the church's pastors and lay leaders. Join others who are in the exploration mode when it comes to church.

Matt Snyder is leading.

Learning Groups and Bible Study

sunday morning groups for all

Sunday mornings at 10 a.m.

You are invited to explore the options for learning and Bible study by visiting groups on Sunday morning. There are a variety of learning styles in the groups at FBCD. Don't feel locked in to a group the first time you visit. We encourage you to visit several groups as a way to meet folks in the church and find the right fit for you. You will be welcomed!


We are located at the corner of Clairemont and Commerce in Decatur, Georgia. We are known for our large greenspace in front of the Sanctuary building which faces Clairemont Avenue.

Where do I park?

There are two main parking areas at First Baptist Church—an outside parking lot and a covered parking deck. Most first-time guests find it easiest to park in the outside lot to the right of the Sanctuary Building.

Where do I go inside the building? 

From the outdoor parking area, enter the large covered entry way. This is the first floor of the Main Building (Sanctuary Building). Fresh Start worship is on this floor in Carreker Hall, and Sanctuary worship is up the elevator or stairs to the second floor. You may also enter the Sanctuary from the front lawn.
