Is First Baptist Waverly a Large Church?

It's a matter of perspective. People who grew up in country churches tell us that, to them, First Baptist seems large. People who come from Nashville may think of First Baptist as medium sized or small. The fact is First Baptist is larger than 65% of all Southern Baptist Churches in Tennessee.
First Baptist is large enough to offer programs such as Sunday School, with classes for people your own age.  We are large enough to have plenty of ministry opportunities for anyone of any age to serve.  First Baptist is also small enough for you to become acquainted with most of the regular attendees.

Our members will encourage you to get plugged into a Sunday School class and attend the Evening worship on Sunday and Prayer meeting on Wednesday nights.  You find out what's going on, and you feel like a member of the family.  It is difficult to experience that by just attending the morning worship service.
