What to Expect
Every Sunday we gather together as a church for worship. This is the central meeting for our church and it's where we come together to praise our God, to encourage each other, to listen to God’s word to us, and to respond to him based on what He has told us. Our time together is always built around God's Word.
We pray the Word. Prayers of praise based on what the Bible says about who God is and what he has done. Prayers of confession and thanksgiving based on what we know of our sin and God’s promise to forgive us through Jesus. And prayers of supplication, where we ask God for what we need, as the Bible invites us to do.
We sing the Word. Our songs unpack the good news about Jesus and give us a chance to respond to that news. They’re aimed both at God, in praise, and at one another, to remind each other to trust His promises.
We listen to the Word. At the center of each gathering is a sermon that typically works verse-by-verse through sections of the Bible. Our goal is to understand what God has said and how it affects our lives.
We celebrate the Lord’s Supper each Sunday at the end of our service. In partaking of the bread and the cup, we remember how our Lord gave His body and blood for our salvation, and has united us together into one Body. Likewise, as we have opportunity, we celebrate the ordinance of Baptism at the conclusion of our service. Upon their profession of faith, we are able to observe this wonderful picture of a Christian’s union with Christ, as we are buried with Him in death, and raised with Him to newness of life.
Starts at 10:00am and ends sometime around 11:30am. There will be a bulletin each Sunday outlining the content of our service. We encourage you to enjoy fellowship with one another after the service.
Casual would describe most of our attire on Sundays. We encourage you to wear what makes you feel most comfortable. How you dress is far less important to us than your relationship with God.
Expect a guitar and/or a keyboard, a mix of contemporary praise and worship music, and even some hymns. We believe the most important instruments in our gatherings are the voices of God's people! Psalm 33:1-3
Expect a sermon grounded in the text of the Bible under consideration, sensitive to the broader narrative and doctrinal truths of the whole Bible (Acts 20:24-27), and relevant to our lives as we seek to live as Christians (Romans 15:4).
Many of us have kids, and we have trusted individuals who will provide well-supervised childcare for infants through pre-K during the worship service.
