What to expect

We are a Christian faith community where ALL people can belong, grow in their beliefs and become disciples of Christ. We know visiting a new church for the first time can be a bit scary. It is our privilege to have you worship with us. We hope your faith will be strengthened and your interest in God’s Word will grow as a result of your time with us. Our ministry focus is simple. We aim to know God and grow spiritually together. We do this through practical Bible teaching, contemporary worship and creating a host of opportunities for significant and supportive relationships. Building disciples in a healthy church environment is our mission – we invite you to join us. The information below may help you feel less anxious about joining us this Sunday.

Who are the people?  We are people from all types of backgrounds, and you’ll find a family atmosphere.

What should I wear?  You will see some people dressed in suits and dresses and others in shorts or jeans. We do not expect any certain clothes or style and we want you to feel comfortable.

What is worship like?

In all things we do we seek to honor God. (1 Corinthians 10:31) This is particularly something we earnestly attempt to accomplish through our worship. Above worship styles we want to worship in such a way that Jesus smiles down on us.Our worship services are a combination of lifting up worship in song, prayer and encouraging fellowship. We have a sermon in a sack that the children bring something in a paper sack and the pastor has 30 seconds to come up with a sermon illustration. This engages our children and the adults enjoy the experience as well.  You’ll hear a challenging & inspiring lesson generally presented by our senior minister, Rev. Floyd Laabs. Typically our service lasts an hour to an hour 15 minutes.

Offering?  We want you to feel comfortable. No one will think differently whatever you choose to do. If you have a home church and are visiting we encourage you to give your tithes there. If you are new or thinking about a new place of worship, we would just ask you to consider and pray what God would have you do. If you desire to give, please know we devoted to being careful stewards of God’s resources within our care.

Communion: We participate in communion (or Lord’s Supper) the last Sunday of the month as a memorial of Christ’s death, burial and resurrection. All are welcome to participate.

 

Our prayer is that you’ll find worshiping here an encouraging time that will point you and your family to a closer relationship with our Lord.

When you visit, please stay around after the service so we can get to know you.
