Guest ParkingWe have marked parking for our guests on Hedge Street. We would love for you to use them so your experience will be more comfortable and convenient to main entrances. Also, don't hesitate to ask a parking volunteer or Host Team for additional help if you need it.
Host Teams Are Here For YouIf you need a question answered or if you need someone to get you to a particular part of our buildings or campus, please look for a Host Team member wearing a lanyard; they would be more than happy to assist you.
For Kids and StudentsWe love kids here at FBS and our kid's ministry is called Upstate Kids. Trained workers will see that your kids are loved, nurtured, and cared for while they have fun, make new friends, and learn more about God's love for them.
Upstate Kids is for children from Birth - 5th grade. All of our childcare workers receive background clearances before working with us. Preschoolers (infant - K4) attend Sunday School while their parents attend worship service and Small Groups. For kids in grades 1-5, we offer Small Groups during the 10:00am service and Kids Praise during the 11:15am service.

Upstate Students have groups for grades 6-12. They all happen at 10:00am.

Frequently Asked Questions
What about Sunday School Classes or Small Groups?Our groups are called Connect Groups. We have many groups for all ages and stages of life. At the Downtown Campus these groups meet at 8:45am and 10:00am. Be sure to visit our Group Life page which has all our Connect Group opportunities.
Is there a way to learn more about First Baptist Simpsonville/Upstate Church and membership?Several times each year we host our Getting to Know You Dinner for guests who want to know more about our church. This is a relaxing, informal dinner environment specifically designed to help our guests discover what it is we believe about membership and how to connect and serve at FBS/UC. We provide dinner and childcare is available. If you would like to attend our next Getting to Know You dinner all you need to do is fill out a Worship Guide on Sunday morning or email us at [email protected].
What do you offer for newborns and toddlers?Our Downtown Campus has created a safe, nurturing environment to ensure your children are well taken care of while you attend worship or groups. You can learn more about our program by visiting the KIDS page of the website. Don't hesitate to email us with any questions you might have.
What is typical attire at the Downtown Campus?You are welcome just as you are. Our Downtown Campus is a multigenerational church so you will see everything from coat and tie, jeans and t-shirts and everything in between. We believe that it’s the attitude of your heart that matters to God, rather than your physical appearance.
How do I contact the church for additional questions?The offices are located next to the Downtown Worship Center at 3 Hedge Street and is open Mon. - Thurs. 8-5 and Fri. 8-12.
