What is a typical Sunday Service like?

Since we are a Bible-believing church, the central focus of our Sunday morning service is the Word of God. We typically sing songs that exalt Jesus Christ, we share announcements, prayer requests, have a Scripture reading, and listen to a sermon from the Bible. In addition communion is celebrated on the first Sunday of the month.

Who can attend the communion service?

All born again believers are welcome to celebrate communion with us. Believers are encouraged to examine their attitudes towards the Lord and others before partaking of the elements. Those who are not yet believers or who are unsure of their standing before the Lord are welcome to observe.

What style of music do you use?

A combination of contemporary and traditional music is used accompanied by piano, guitars and other instruments from time to time. Our goal is to exalt Christ in the words and the music that is sung during our services.

What type of preaching can I expect?

Generally we teach consecutively through a book of the Bible. This is interspersed with topical teaching at various times such as special occasions or otherwise as needed. Emphasis is placed on applying the Bible to our individual lives: the gospel to those who have not yet trusted Christ as savior; and growth in Christ to those who have trusted Christ.

Will I be asked to identify myself by raising my hand or filling out a card?

You will not be singled out. An information card is available in the bulletin which you have the option of filling out indicating you are a visitor or that you have a prayer request.

What do people wear?

Most people dress casually.

Do I need to bring a Bible?

Most people find it very helpful to bring a Bible for the teaching part of the worship service. If you don’t have a Bible, there are Bibles under each seat for your use.

What version of the Bible do you use?

Generally, the preaching of the word is done from the New King James Version, but members of the congregation use a variety of translations according to their own preferences.
