Where do I go when I get there?
Once you have arrived, we recommend that you enter the north main doors (double glass doors) to the Sanctuary. The other doors may be hard to access because of the construction that is going on.
Where do my children go?
Martinsville has a ministry for everyone. Our experienced childcare staff take care of your children while you are immersed in services and bible studies. The nursery is located in the far right corner of the New Building. Come through the sanctuary and take the door to the right of the stage area. Follow that hallway straight back and the Nursery will be the first classroom that you come to. We also have Sunday school classes for children ages 4- 12th grade. These classes are located in the central and north ends of the connecting buildings.
What do I wear?
We want you to be comfortable when you come through our doors. If that means that you wear a suit and tie or a pair of jeans and a t-shirt, you will still feel at home with us.
Can I meet the pastor?
Absolutely! Our pastor, Don Gallatin looks forward to visiting with all our visitors. He can be found in the foyer of the sanctuary immediately following each service. You may also call the church for a visit anytime during the week.
I don't own a bible, do I need to get one before I come?
We have bibles available for use during your time at Martinsville Baptist. We ask that you please leave them in the church so that they may be available to others. If you need guidance in getting a bible of your own, we can definitely help you! Don't hesitate to ask any staff member.
