What to expect on your first visit
As you enter our parking lot from Columbia Road, you will find several parking spaces reserved for visitors. One of our greeters will meet you at the door and will help direct you to the service or classes.
A typical worship service will consist of a traditional blend style of congregational and special singing, clear, challenging Bible preaching concluding with an invitation to make personal decisions to follow Christ as Savior or to walk more closely with Him. In addition, on Wednesday evenings, our service includes a special prayer time when we commit to pray for another person throughout the coming week.
Sunday School is at 9:45 am and is in between our two worship services. Bible teaching is the main emphasis in our adult classes as well as the classes for children, infants through high school. These classes are smaller group settings and it is the best way to meet and interact with others.
Where do I take my children?
If you have infants/babies, we have a well-staffed and secure nursery suite where screened and qualified workers will happily receive your infant through two-year-old children. Just take a left from main lobby down the hall; the nursery will be immediately on your left. As you check your child in at the window, you will be given opportunity to leave any instructions and be told how the nursery workers will reach you if there is a need. Please note that the nursery is not open for the 8:30 A.M. service.
For children two years old through 6th grade, there are fun, friendly Bible-centered Sunday School classes. The children ages 2-5 stay in the same rooms for both Sunday School and the 11:00 A.M. service. After Sunday School, the 1st-6th grade children make their way to the Fellowship Hall for Junior Church, an age-appropriate service just for them.
For teenagers, we have both a youth girls’ and a youth boys’ Sunday School class. These students join the regular worship service in the auditorium either before or after Sunday School. There is also a Wednesday night Bible study for teenagers as well many outside activities.
