Worship is a time of lifting our praises to God, as well as a time of intensive Bible teaching, exhortation, and growth. If you’re hungry for no-nonsense preaching mixed with a passion to reach the lost and compassion for those who are hurting all around us, you will feel right at home at Tucapau Baptist Church.

Where do I go?
We would like to personally greet you and help you and your family find your way on your first visit. There are greeters in the Foyer of the Sanctuary that are staffed each Sunday morning to assist newcomers as they seek to find a Bible Study Small Group (Sunday School) that fits their unique needs.
Weekly Bulletins and monthly church newsletters are available at each entrance throughout the week. We would love to help you find your place at Tucapau Baptist Church.
Where do my kids go?
When you know your children are in a loving and safe environment you can relax, allowing you to focus on worship and Bible study. We offer classes for all ages (birth-12th grade). Please ask a greeter or visit the Church Office. We will be glad to escort you and your child to their class.
What are worship services like?
In total, a Tucapau Baptist Church service is about 60 minutes in length. Services begin with uplifting praise and worship through music – song lyrics are projected onto the screens so you can sing along and/or engage with worship however you feel most comfortable. After the music portion of service is complete, our pastor will share an encouraging and hope-filled message about Jesus with the straightforward teaching of God’s word.
What do I need to bring?
Many members and guests find that it’s easier and more fulfilling to participate in Bible study when they have their own copy of the Bible with them during worship so that they can underline or highlight particular verses for later study or use a Bible app on their smart phone. During worship, key Bible verses will be displayed on the overhead screens for those who do not have a Bible with them and for those who carry a different translation. If you prefer to take simple notes, you may prefer to bring a notepad and pen or pencil for taking notes.
What do I wear?
No matter what your personal style, you’ll be comfortable at Tucapau Baptist Church. If you prefer dressy, business, or casual attire, chances are there will be others dressed much like you no matter when you visit. Sure, Sunday mornings are a time when many prefer to dress up a bit, but even if jeans are more your style, you’ll be right at home with us. Naturally, Sunday and Wednesday evenings are slightly more casual than Sunday morning, but dress up for these if you prefer. Preschoolers and children learn while they play. We encourage hands on play so that children are learning through all their senses, so use your own judgment about how dressed up your child is while at church. Our Middle and High School students usually dress casually on Sunday and Wednesday evenings because games and sporting events are often held outside and sometimes involve getting messy.
