What To Expect When You Visit
Visiting a new church can be intimidating! But we want you to feel comfortable and have plenty of opportunity to get to know us, learn more about God and spend time in worship to Him. In addition to finding a people who are fiercely dedicated to allowing the Word God to guide all that we do in life and in worship, here are some of the things you can expect when you visit our services.
The Bible. We view the Bible as our single source of truth. It reveals the will of God to us. So when you visit, there will be plenty of opportunities to spend time with the Word of God. We have classes for children of all ages and adults. In all of these classes, you will find that we place an emphasis on studying scripture to learn more about Jesus and his will for our lives. In addition to bible classes, every Sunday we also hear a lesson presented to the entire congregation.
Singing. We love to worship our Lord and God. The Bible teaches us that God loves to be worshiped in song and so that is what we do. We encourage everyone to join in and sing out, regardless of your talent. Even if you can’t sing well, your heartfelt expression of worship towards God is what’s most important.
Prayer. We are a praying people. When you visit, you will notice that we pray at several different times during the service. Leaders will direct our minds to pray for the sick, to thank God for our blessings, and to encourage our brothers and sisters.
The Lord's Supper. One of the most important things we do on Sunday’s is to remember the sacrifice that Jesus made on behalf of all sinners, so we might have a relationship with the Father. We follow the example of the christians in Acts 20.7 and do this every week. The supper consists of unleavened bread and fruit of the vine as memorials to the body and blood of Jesus Christ (1Corinthians 11:20-34). These elements are provided for any and all guests who wish to participate.
Giving. We read in scripture that individual christians gave according to their means to meet the needs and work of the church (1Corinthians 16:1-2). When you visit, we won’t ask for your money. Giving is our responsibility, not yours.
We hope you will choose to visit and worship with us soon. When you do, please know that he have ample facilities for parents with small children and mothers with nursing children. We don’t have a rigid dress code, and you will find members who wear everything from suits/ties and dresses to jeans. If you have an interest in the Lord, we invite you to come as you are.
