How would you describe your church?
We have been described as "friendly" and we have been told that we have a "family atmosphere." Many say that the presence of God can be felt when we gather. Our church has a relaxed atmosphere, is real, and people come as they are. We are "the imperfect church for imperfect people" and our mission is "to love God and people." Our church is like a hospital where the broken and wounded can find healing. We have ordinary people in whom God has done extraordinary things. We are a Pentecostal church that has a balanced approach and we believe that all the spiritual gifts outlined in the scriptures are in operation today. We are expressive in our worship, yet each person can worship God in how they most feel comfortable. Our church has bible based teaching both on Sunday mornings and at our Wednesday evening bible study.
What can I expect on Sunday mornings?
We are a friendly church and have a relaxed atmosphere. Our Sunday morning worship service usually lasts from 80 to 90 minutes. We begin at 10:30 AM and end approximately at 12:00 PM. A typical service may look like 30-35 minutes of corporate worship and prayer, 10 minutes for announcements and offering, 30-35 minutes of speaking, and 10 minutes of response or altar time. We are passionate in our worship and we have extended times of prayer, lingering in the presence of God. It is our desire that those who come encounter the presence of God each week. As far as our teaching, our Pastor will usually preach in a series. The teaching is down to earth, applicable to our lives, and relevant. We have handouts and a PowerPoint prepared for each message which has the scriptures and points we will be covering that morning.
What is your Wedneday evening bible study like?
We call our Wednesday evening bible study "Going Deeper." It is a time when we go deep into the word of God and develop relationships. We meet on Wednesdays in our fellowship hall at 6:30 PM except during the months of July and December. We have some "decaf" coffee brewed and usually someone will bring a snack. We develop relationships, pray, and have an in depth bible study. From 6:30 to 7:00 we fellowship and pray and usually begin the bible study by 7:00.
