What to Expect

Visiting a church for the first time can be scary! Hopefully this helps ease the nervousness!

We’d love to have you join us on Sunday! We have Sunday school at 9:30 am and our worship service begins at 10:45 am.

Below is some info that we hope you’ll find helpful.

Sunday Worship Service:

Our worship services are centered on the person and work of Jesus Christ as revealed in the Word of God. Our desire each week is for the message of the gospel, namely, that sinners can be restored to a right relationship with God by turning from their sin and entrusting themselves to Jesus Christ, will be clearly and winsomely presented as we read, preach, sing, and pray the truths of God's word. We also have the joy of seeing the gracious work of God displayed visibly to us through the Lord’s Supper (on the 2nd Sunday of each month) and in baptisms.

Musically we sing a variety of songs from hymns to modern praise - depending on who is there on Sundays we have a full band with piano, keyboard, drums, bass/acoustic/electric guitars, banjos, trumpets and more. We're blessed with a very talented worship band!

Sunday School:

Sunday school classes are available for children from 9:30 to 10:30 am Sunday mornings. We provide a 3yr-K class, a 1st-3rd grade class, a 4th-6th grade class, and a Jr. High class for 7th-8th grade. Students 9th grade and above participate in our Sunday Seminar courses.

Sunday Seminars are simply a revamped and diversified version of Sunday school. Our desire is to offer multiple classes with multiple teachers that will touch on various topics ranging from faith, theology, history of the church, and how we live our lives for Christ. Each Sunday Seminar course will be either 6 or 12 weeks long and will meet from 9:30 to 10:30 am Sunday mornings. These courses are open to everyone 9th grade and above.

We provide a nursery for all children 0-3 years old during Sunday school and our worship service. We also have a cry room available during our worship service for nursing mothers that allows them to care for their children while still being able to participate in the service.

What should I wear?

You're more than welcome to dress casual or dress up, you will fit in either way. The majority of our people will be in jeans.

How long does the service last?

Our worship service normally last an hour and a half (10:45 am to 12:15 pm).

We hope this helps answer some of the questions you may have. If you have any other questions or would like to know more about us as a church please feel free to contact the church office at (254) 248-0053.
