To know Christ and to make Him known

I'm New

We realize that visiting a church for the first time can be an intimidating experience, so we want to give you some idea of what to expect when you come.

What will I experience?

First of all we want you to expect a warm and friendly welcome. No matter who you are or what your circumstances, you will be warmly welcomed by our members. Everyone stands on level ground at the foot of the cross of Christ, so all are equally welcomed into our church.

What will I hear?

 When you come visit us you will hear Christ-centered, Bible-based teaching. You will find Jesus and the salvation that He offers to be the main topic of our classes and worship services. The Bible is our text-book for learning about Jesus, about His church, and about how He would have us to live. So you will find us studying and teaching it every time we meet. Paul declared all Scripture to be “inspired of God,” and we believe that. So we think it’s important to let God speak to us through His word. From our nursery through our adult classes, and always in our worship, you will find the Bible as the basis of all that we do. 

What is worship like?

 Church services tend to come in all flavors, so we’d like to give you some idea of what to expect in one of ours.
 First, you should understand that worship is vital to all that we are and do. We believe that we were created to worship and serve God, and we try to make that evident when we come together to praise and thank Him. We do not engage in empty or humanly-devised rituals; rather, we offer up the worship that Scripture teaches us to offer. Because of this, our worship is simple and heartfelt.
Second, we understand that different people appreciate different styles of music which can all bring glory to God. In our services we offer a blend of traditional hymns with contemporary praise choruses. We are simply seeking to facilitate true worship for all ages.

What should I wear?

There is normally a wide variety of dress at our church. When attending our Sunday Services, some people wear suits and dresses, others more “business casual”, and other are comfortable in blue jeans. We want you to feel comfortable when visiting, so come as you are, and you’ll fit right in. “Man looks at the outward appearance, but the Lord looks at the heart.” I Samuel 16:7.

Wednesday evening adult Bible study usually has a more informal atmosphere. Very few people wear ties to this service, and more casual clothes are appropriate.   

Now that you know...

So now that you know what to expect, we hope that you will consider worshiping God and studying the Bible with us before long!
