What should you expect?

 

Whenever you come, you should expect a God-loving and people-loving community centered around the Word of God, a community of people who will seek to welcome you and get to know you.

 

Sunday Mornings Corporate Gathering

Please come around 10:30AM to give us a chance to meet you. Also, after the service our people often mingle around for 30 minutes and go to lunch together. We hope you give us an opportunity to know you. Our weekly attendance runs about 80-100. People come dressed business-casual, although you will find some dressed in suits and others in jeans.

Scripture Reading and Prayer. Our corporate gathering gives a high emphasis on the regular reading of Scripture and on bringing our hearts before God in several times of prayer.

Music. We believe that singing in church is about the church singing. Therefore, we prefer congregational singing over performed music. Thus most of our music invites the entire community to participate in singing. We sing songs that are rich in Biblical content, and which have been composed by contemporary and by long past writers.

Preaching. Our pastor typically preaches series of expositional sermons that cover longer sections of the Bible. The weekly sermons usually last about 40-45 minutes.

Children. If you have children, we would love to care for them. Children 0-2 yrs are welcomed in our nursery. Children 2 to 3 yrs are welcome in our "Preschoolers, the Body and Jesus" ministry, which runs parallel to our corporate service. Children 4 and up are encouraged to stay in the service. From 9:30 to 10:30 our children and adults spend time in different age-based discipleship classes (See our Children's Ministry page).

 

Sunday Night Prayer Gathering

Our Prayer Gathering begins at 5:30 in the fellowship hall. We begin with a few songs. After reading a Psalm, we spend most of our time on praying and seeking God's face as a congregation. We conclude this time with a short exposition of Scripture.

 

Children 4+ and Youth are encouraged to join us in the prayer service.

Nursery is open for babies and toddlers from 5:00PM to 7:00PM.
