No matter where you are in your own spiritual growth, we welcome you to become a regular attender of our church! We have people at all levels of Christian growth, from those who are seeking and investigating Christianity, to young Christians, to those who are mature in the walk with Christ. We offer several ministry options to meet the needs of people at all levels of spiritual development. We warmly invite you to be a part of what God is doing here!
What to expect Every visitor wonders: "What's it like at XYZ church?" Here's a brief description of what it's like to visit us for a Sunday service:
Service starts at 10:30am, but come a little early and enjoy good coffee at our Coffee cafe
You enter the church building. A few people are out in the foyer, having coffee and conversation. Some friendly person will likely come up and say "hi" and "welcome"
Entering the sanctuary, the atmosphere is casual. Very few are "dressed up." Friendly conversations and the sounds of children fill the air
Service begins and we stand, sing, and worship for 20-25 minutes. Music is a contemporary style with the occasional hymn--more like what you might hear on KLOVE Radio. Some people raise their hands in worship.
After the singing, the Service Leader greets the people, shares some Scripture, and gives the announcements. Sometimes there's a musical selection, a video or perhaps a word of testimony. An offering is collected.
We break 5 minutes for a "Meet and Greet" time. People are "all over the place" saying "hi," or breaking for the bathroom.
After the break time, we release children, 3 years old through 3rd grade for Children's Church, and some parents take their infants & toddlers to the nursery.
Then pastor preaches about a 40-minute message, usually an exposition on a passage of Scripture.
Service concludes with prayer and/or a song, and prayer ministers are available up front to pray with anyone who would like prayer.
Overall, we are an informal and down-to-earth people, who desire to know God better, to grow in Christian maturity, to build a sense of family among us, and above all, to make much of Jesus!
