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 Sunday morning?

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 service, 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 6:30.

Our Distinctives

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.

We believe...
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 Holy Spirit.

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 glory.

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.
