What to Expect When You Visit
what are your sunday services like?
All our worship services are based on God’s Word and we incorporate a variety of music forms. They include singing and worship time, a teaching from Pastor, prayers for our congregation and community, and children's messages. Communion is celebrated the 1st, 3rd and 5th Sunday of each month in all services, and the preceding Wednesday.
Worship services last about an hour, give or take.
is there childcare available?
No, mostly because we love to have children join us during our church services. The children are encouraged to come sit on the altar steps for the Pastor’s Children’s Message and for The Treasure Tote with Randy - it’s always a big surprise and fun! Jesus said, “Let the little children come to me and do not hinder them.” We take that to heart and embrace children.
what happens after the service?
We enjoy refreshments and fellowship. We also have Sunday School for younger children, Youth Group for teens, and Adult Bible Study for those of us who don’t share our age.
is there a dress code?
No dress code here. Regardless of the service you choose, you’ll find attire from suits to jeans and everything in-between.
What We Believe
We believe that the Bible is God’s Word. It is accurate, authoritative and applicable to our everyday lives.
We believe in one eternal God who is the Creator of all things. He exists in three Persons: God the Father, God the Son and God the Holy Spirit. He is totally loving and completely holy.
We believe that sin has separated each of us from God and His purpose for our lives.
We believe that eternal salvation comes through faith in Jesus Christ, and the sacrifice he made for us.
We believe that God wants to heal and transform us so that we can live healthy and blessed lives in order to help others more effectively.
We believe that the Lord Jesus Christ is coming back again as He promised.
