About a Visit

  1. Sunday School/Adult Bible Classes

    For our Sunday School hour, children are divided into several age groups and taught a lesson from the Bible with age appropriate applications. Presently, our adults meet together in one class to study the Bible.  Lessons are sometimes topical: piecing together what the Bible says concerning a particular topic, doctrinal: systematically examining the major doctrines of the Word of God, or textual: studying the message of a particular book or text of Scripture.  Our Sunday School and Adult Bible Classes are more academic in nature, building our knowledge of God and His Word.

  2. Sunday Morning Worship Service

    This service consists of the singing of hymns, prayer led by the pastor or one of the church men, music from a choir or a smaller musical group, announcements, a time of worship in giving, and a sermon.  The sermon is the main part of the morning service and involves the exposition and teaching of the Word of God. The morning service lasts between an hour and an hour and fifteen minutes.

  3. Sunday Evening Service

    Our Sunday evening service is not a repeat of our morning service. There is still the singing of hymns, prayer, and a sermon, but the sermon is typically shorter. and the service lasts about an hour. The atmosphere of the service is more relational in nature. There is a greeting time at the beginning of the service, and at the close of the service people linger to visit with one another and to help to take down and store our church furniture. We have found this service to be a wonderful and encouraging way to close out the Lord's Day.

  4. Midweek Bible Study & Prayer 

    Our midweek service meets in one of the classrooms in the building we lease. Typically there are fewer people than our other services and our children age 3 to grade 4 have a separte teaching time. Our midweek service begins with the singing of a hymn, then we go directly to our study of the Word of God. To close out the night we recieve prayer requests and then pray as a group or break up into smaller groups to pray together.  The midweek service lasts about an hour to an hour and fifteen minutes.

Things you may want to know

  1. What should I bring? 

    You don't need to bring anything.  If you have a Bible it will help you to follow along and aid in your understanding of the message.  The pastor and teachers will teach from the King James Version of the Bible, but as light is shed on a particular passage of Scripture you should be able to understand different wording and follow the truth regardless of the version you bring. We have a few Bibles available for your use, simply ask one of the ushers.

  2. What should I wear? 

    We have no set dress code.  You will see many men wearing a coat and tie and many women in skirts or dresses, but others come more casually.  Because we believe that the church is important and our God worthy, we dress accordingly to honor Him and show importance to what we are doing as a church body. Our focus is not on what anyone is wearing but on the Lord and the spiritual needs of those in attendance. 

  3. What about my young children?

    Childcare is provided for children through age two and is provided at all of our church services. You may ask one of the usher to show you to the room we use for this ministry.  At this time we are unable to provide a ministry for older children, except at our midweek ministries. 

  4. Whom do I see if I have a question?

    You may ask the usher who will greet you at the door and are never far away if needed.  For spiritual questions, the pastor is available after the service. As he greets you at one of the exits, let him know you'd like to meet with him.
