Where is the entrance to church?
Our main entrance is under the canopy on the west of end of the parking lot opposite Jefferson St. We have handicapped accessibility at those doors. There is also an entrance on Jefferson St. just to the left of the church.
What is the worship service like?
We think of worship as a conversation with God. We bring our troubles to him and he tells us what he has done for us as well as what he will continue to do for us. We use a variety of formats with music both old and new to give people from every generation ways to talk and listen to the Lord. A normal service will last about one hour.
How much does it cost to worship?
Absolutely nothing. We exist to share what we have. Our members give their offerings so that we can continue to share the good news of forgiveness in Christ Jesus. When the offering plates are passed, it is an opportunity to support the continuing message we proclaim.
What should I wear?
The important thing is not what you wear. We are glad to welcome you and to share the great things God has done for you, no matter what you wear.
How will I follow along with worship?
In the fellowship hall there will be bulletins readily avaliable to take. In this bulletin, you will find the directions for worship. It will reference a hymnal which will be located right in front of every seat in the church. In this hymnal you will find the order of service in the front, and the hymns in the back.
