What to Expect When Visiting

The first stop for most is one of our Worship Services. Both services are identical and happen at 8:45 & 11:00 a.m. Services are held in the Auditorium, located just to the right as you enter the building. Most Sunday Services last 65 minutes, a few are shorter and even fewer last longer.

 

What happens during church?

A typical worship service opens with few worship songs, led by our worship band. The music is typical of what is heard on Contemporary Christian radio stations, such as K-Love.  We follow that with a time of Communion each Sunday. Communion is offered to all who have accepted Jesus as their Savior. We encourage each believer to participate as they remember Jesus and commit their lives to Him. We encourage children and those who are not in a committed relationship with Jesus, to wait to participate until this part of worship has meaning to you.

Following communion, there is a Bible-based time of preaching. The current sermon series is highlighted on our home page. We typically close out the service with an additional song or two.

During the service, there are often a few minutes for meeting and greeting those around you; however, we will never “call out” guests.

On your way into the Auditorium, one of our greeters will hand you a bulletin, highlighting the day’s service, along with providing information on current events going on within the congregation.
