Finding a church that fits can sometimes be intimidating, especially if you’re new in town or if you haven’t had much experience with church in the past. In fact, you’re probably browsing this site right now because you’re hoping to get an idea of what First Monroe is like before you show up on Sunday morning. If that’s the case, here are a few questions you may be asking:

What kind of people will I find at first Monroe?

First Monroe sits right in the middle of downtown. One thing you’ll notice when you visit is that we don’t all look the same. The Lord has placed people from different ages, backgrounds, and races in our church. Each week we come together to worship through song and scripture.

How does everyone dress?

Everyone is encouraged to attend worship in whatever attire they feel most comfortable. For a few that will mean slacks and a tie, for most it means jeans and a polo, and for some it means shorts and a t-shirt. You will typically find our pastor preaching in jeans and a button-down. We hope that you feel at home no matter what you wear.

What is the music like?

Traditionally, there has been a line drawn between contemporary and traditional worship, and you belong to either one camp or another. While the majority of our worship would be classified as contemporary, we still love the theological depth and poetic beauty contained in the classic hymns most of us grew up with. So we will often pull one of those classics out and sing it with a modern twist.

What is the preaching like?

Our preaching is always biblical, informative, and applicable. We encourage you to listen to a sermon from Pastor James under the sermon area of our home page to get a feel for our sermons.
