Before You Visit
Attending a new church
can be frightening. You ask yourself questions like "Are they
friendly?", "Where do I sit?", and "Will they put a spotlight on me
because I am new?".
We ARE friendly, you may sit ANYWHERE, and no spotlights. In fact,
in an attempt to calm fears and answer questions, we are providing
you with this page. You will find information such as location and
what to expect during the service. To begin, let's start with the
biggest question of all...
What should I expect on
Our Sunday morning services are held in The Reach Center. Just
inside the main entrance, you'll find our greeters. They will
happily assist you with any questions you may have as well as
provide you with the morning church bulletin.
Through the main entrance is the auditorium and again, you may sit
anywhere. Sunday morning service begins at 8:20, 9:40 & 11:00. Services start
with music followed by the message. Bible Study classes are held
during the 9:40 and 11:00 services, classes are available for
all ages. We encourage you to attend one of our classes, it is a
great way to meet people and see God working in others. As we consider ourselves
a teaching church, the sermons usually focus on how we can apply the
teachings of the Bible to our daily lives.
We also have a Wednesday evening meal at 5:30 (sign
up), and service at 6:20.

Churches, like families, have their own unique cultures. They have
distinctive values and practices that represent their view of
Scripture, their people, background, and experiences.
Here are some of the marks of our church family.
1. In the Bible as the inspired Word of God; the finally authority
in all matters of faith and conduct.
2. In one God, eternally existent in three Persons: Father, Son, and
3. In Jesus Christ, His Deity, virgin birth, sinless life, vicarious
death, burial and bodily resurrection, His ascension to the right
hand of the Father, and His personal future return in power and
4. In the sinfulness of man, and salvation only by grace through
faith in the shed blood of Jesus Christ.
5. In the present ministry of the Holy Spirit, by whose indwelling
the Christian is enabled to live a godly life.
6. In the resurrection of the dead, the believer to life everlasting
and the unbeliever to the resurrection of judgment.
7. In the church as the Body of Christ, comprised of all who have
accepted the redemption provided in Him.
