Everyone is welcome to worship with us!

In 1956, a group of people had a God-given dream.  They believed that God would help them establish a church to do His work in the City of Sumter, and they acted on their dream, trusting in the rock of Jesus Christ.  None of them could have imagined all God would do in the over 60 years that would follow.  Countless prayers, visits, lessons, songs, and tithes have built this body of Christ, one life at a time.  For over 60 years, Alice Drive Baptist Church has been committed to helping people take their next step with Jesus.  We do this by helping people: Know Jesus, Know Community, Grow Character, and Go Share.


Our reason for existence is as important as ever.  People still need to know they matter to God, church is a place of grace, real happiness is found when we live like Jesus, and God has purpose for their lives.  Our mission is out there – to boldly take the grace of God to all the corners where darkness reigns.




Worship Services

You’ll hear worship music, both old and new, done in a vibrant style by our music team using modern instruments and technology. You may see people with their hands up or down, eyes open or closed, but worship here is all about honoring and giving praise to our Savior, Jesus Christ.  
Of course, worship is more than just singing.  We also worship God as we hear and apply God’s Word. We’re careful to preach the Scriptures each weekend in a way that is faithful to the text and applicable to our lives. Prayer is an important feature of our worship service as well.

Common Questions

What kind of church is Alice Drive Baptist Church?

Alice Drive is a place of grace welcoming people from all walks of life. We value children, students, and families and believe the Bible adds value to real life situations. Alice Drive wants everyone to know Jesus in a personal, experiential way and learn what their Next Step is in their walk with Him.



What about my kids?

On Sunday Mornings at both of our campuses, as well as on Monday Nights at our Loring Mill Campus, we have a well-trained and fully staffed nursery for all services. 


During the 9:45 and 11:00 services we have LIFE Groups for newborn-5th grade, and LIFE Groups for Middle and High Schoolers. They are welcome to enjoy two hours of teaching if you decide to go to an hour of worship and an hour of LIFE Groups yourself.


Parents are always welcome to attend and observe any of our kid’s ministries; or if you feel more comfortable, kids are more than welcome in the worship service.

What are your services like?

Alice Drive’s services focus mostly on worship and preaching. We’ll share some announcements during the morning, express our hearts to God through music, and hear a teaching about God’s word. The 8:30 am service is a classic service for those who are most comfortable connecting to God through hymns. The music at the 9:45 & 11 am as well as the Monday services at 7 pm are modern. 


Will I have to say anything, sign anything, or be singled out?

Rest assured that you won’t be put on the spot, singled-out, or embarrassed. We do like to collect some basic information from first time visitors, but if you’d prefer not to, that’s alright with us. If you filled out a Connect Card and checked First Time Guest on Sunday, a gift will be delivered to your home. On Mondays or special occasions, you may pick up a gift at the Information Center in the Lobby.


Will I be expected to give money when I come?

At each service we collect tithes and offerings, because God calls us to (Mal. 3:10), and because that’s how any church receives funding to operate. But as our guest, don’t feel any obligation to participate in this part of the service.



How to learn more?

Attend our Starting Point Class which is the first Sunday of most months from 1215 -130p in McManus Hall. This is a basic introduction to our church family designed to clearly explain our history, who we are, what we believe, what our church is all about, and how to get connected. This is a great opportunity to learn about Alice Drive Baptist Church, get to know some of our staff and for us to get to know you. After the class you can decide whether or not you would like to join through membership.

Lunch and childcare are provided.
