SUNDAY SERVICE:  Adult Sunday School 9:00am | Children's Class 10:00am | Worship Service 10:30am     MID-WEEK PRAYER: Wednesday 6:30pm

What to expect

When you arrive

You’ll be welcomed by our congregation. We love to have new people join with us whenever we gather in Christ’s name. The building that we meet in is not large, and you will not have any problem finding your way around. (The nursery and restrooms are to the left and the kitchen and coffee are to the right.) If you do need help finding your way around, just ask anyone. Our people will be happy to help you.


Once you’re seated, you’ll notice that we come together as one church family for worship. Even our “children’s service” is attended by adults as well as kiddos. We believe it is very important for children to learn to worship together with their families. (We do have a nursery available for children, ages four and younger, and a side room for nursing moms or those whose children are having a tough morning.)


You will very likely be greeted by several of our people before the service begins (but we don’t expect you to remember all our names!) And though we take worship very seriously, our gathering time will be anything but solemn. There is usually a rumble of joy to be heard as the saints are gathering.

During Worship Service

After the worship service

Though we gladly invite men, women and children to repent and believe the Gospel of Christ for salvation, we do not use man-centered manipulation techniques to do so. Instead, you’ll be exhorted to look to Christ, and given an opportunity to speak to one of our elders after the service if you so desire. If you need prayer or anything at all, please feel free to take advantage of this time.


Also, plan on sticking around when the service is over. Most of our congregation enjoys this time after the last “amen” for sharing in each other’s lives. This is when many friendships are formed. On the first and third Sunday of every month, we enjoy a fellowship meal together after the service. Help yourself to the yummy food that our various members bring to share with all. (And FYI, we have some very gifted cooks in our fellowship.)

During the week

We will not force ourselves on you during the week, though our elder or deacons would love the chance to come visit with you in your home if you want us to. (If so, please fill out a card located in the pouch on the back of each chair. You may place this card in the offering plate when it is passed.)


We also gather each Wednesday at 6:30pm for fellowship and prayer. We would love for you to join us.


That’s what to expect. I believe we have a warm, loving family in Christ who would love to get to know you better. Please let us know if there is anything we can do for you.

We exist to worship God. We would love to have you join us.
