VISITORS, What to expect...

We are honored that you are considering visiting us and would love to meet you!  If you are wondering what your first visit might be like and what to do, here are a few guidelines to help you.


While the dress of most of the church members might be described as something like "business casual," we welcome you however you choose to come. 


Because we love receiving visitors (and members alike), we do our best to be excellent hosts.  When you come in the front door before the service begins there will usually be someone to greet you and to welcome you.  We are honored by your visit and would like to get to know you better and how we can best minister to you and for this reason you will receive a visitor card to fill out.  Once you have filled out your card, please place it in the offering plate to turn it back in to us.


We believe strongly in worship.  We have a wonderful music team whose purpose is to lead the congregation in praise and into worship.  We begin each service with song and sing throughout the remainder.  You will often see people lifting their hands, clapping, or even running or dancing.  We believe in giving God our all and worship is one of the primary ways we express this.  We invite you to worship with us.


We belive in prayer.  At some point during the worship service, we take time to pray over needs of those in our church family and the needs of others.  If you have a special need in your life and would like to receive prayer directly from our pastor and ministry, you are welcome (though certainly not required) to come to the front if directed to do so. 

Preaching and Altar Call

We believe in the preaching of God's Word.  After the worship service the minister is introduced.  Those involved in our preaching ministry spend a great deal of time in prayer seeking God's will for each service and for ways to best minister to those who will hear.  At the conclusion of the message, we give an "altar call" in which we invite all those who would like to pray and to receive something from God to come to the front of the church, around the altars.  It is here that God often moves in a beautiful way and lives are changed.


At the conclusion of the service, our members often stay to talk with one another.  We view our church as more than a building to come to a few times each week.  We are truly a family and as such, we enjoy spending time together.
