What to expect on your first visit


Visiting any church for the very first time can be a tough experience.  Well, we want to put you at ease. Your first visit to Mid State Baptist will be refreshing, friendly, and enjoyable for your whole family.

We want you to experience inspiring music, helpful teaching and preaching, friendly people, and a place where you feel welcome and “at home”! Here are a few answers to your questions and what you might expect on your first visit.



We are sharing Life Community Church building at 3770 Ruth Way, Paso Robles, California. There is parking all around our building with special spaces for guests, seniors, and those who are disabled. As you approach our main entrance, one of our hospitality greeters will meet you and direct you to the right classes and services. They can also answer other questions you may have.

During the 1:30 PM hour, there are children’s Sunday School and adult Bible classes. These classes are smaller group settings where you are invited to meet people, enjoy perhaps some coffee and donuts, and hear a teaching lesson more directly applicable to your life-stage. The best way to get to know people at Mid State Baptist Church is to visit one of these adult Bible classes.

Next, you’ll enjoy our 2:30 PM worship service where you’ll enjoy the uplifting and inspiring congregational singing. The music is always followed by a clear, helpful, and challenging Bible message from Pastor Fore. This service is a little over one hour in length.

Where Do I Take My Children?

Starting with excellent nurseries, there is something special for every age child. At every service there are safe, clean, and highly staffed nurseries for children three years old and under. For children four years old through sixth grade there are fun, friendly, and Bible-centered classes.

These classes are staffed with trained, friendly, and well-qualified teachers and helpers who will make church exciting and memorable for your child. Our greeters and ushers are located in the lobby and will gladly help direct and even escort you to the right place.


What About My Teens?

Our student ministries are designed to encourage young people to develop a heart for God. Most of the teens attend the 1:30 PM class for one hour and then the worship service another hour with their parents.

Am I Expected to Participate in the Offering?

No. We don't invite you to Mid State Baptist Church for your offering. We want our service to be a gift to you. We hope you will find in this place a warm family spirit, truth from God's Word, and a place where you can grow in God's grace. Please don't feel any obligation to participate in the offering as a guest.

Other Questions?

If there's something we missed on this list, just give us a call, or ask someone when you arrive. Whether you're new to the area and looking for a church home, or if it's been a long time since you've attended church at all, we hope your first visit at Mid State Baptist will be awesome! We exist to serve you and your family, and we are looking forward to meeting you personally. We hope you'll feel right at home from the very first moment you step onto campus! Let us know how we can serve you better, and we hope to meet you this Sunday!
