WHAT TO EXPECT
What is a worship service like?
We have two regular weekly services
Sunday Mornings start at 9:30a in the main sanctuary. After you grab a spot in the parking lot, walk in the front door and receive a bulletin from one of our greeters. When the service begins we pray, sing, read Scripture, hear the Word taught, and give financially. We believe the Bible is the inerrant word of God and our supreme authority, so you will hear it prayed, sung, and taught.
Wednesday Nights start at 6:00p in the main sanctuary. Everyone, both really young and old gather for a short worship service including prayer, singing, and a short message. Then we break off into different ages. Adults stay in the sanctuary for a time of discussion and further teaching over the message. Students head out to discuss the message's application among their peers. And the children head out for a discipleship program we have developed called Compass Kids, you can read about what exactly that is here.
We have a deep passion to see God glorified in all that we do both in our large group meetings and in families and individuals throughout the week. To summarize how we see our mission as the church played out is to bring glory to God by connecting people to Jesus.
In terms of how we are as a micro-culture, know that we see the people of God, in specific the local church, as vital part of the Christian's life. With this importance placed as a high priority in the Christian life we see the biblical purposes of the church being fulfilled in fellowship, service, worship, evangelism, prayer, and teaching. These are the things we take seriously.
So what you wear doesn't really matter to us. Jeans and a T-shirt? Sounds great. Full suit? We think it looks good on you! Lots of tattoos? No worries. Think you are to sinful to come to church? Not true.
The bottom-line is that you are welcome here. You are welcome to come hear the great truth from God who sent his Son to die in the place of sinners so that they might be reconciled to him. You are welcome to worship God and confess your sin, repent from your sin, and follow him in faith-filled community.
