Whether you have already visited us or are thinking about joining us, we’d like to give you more information about who we are and what to expect at a typical service. We are a Bible-believing church that flows in the gifts of the Holy Spirit. “Well my brothers and sisters, let’s summarize. When you meet together, one will sing, another will teach, another will tell some special revelation God has given, one will speak in tongues, and another will interpret what is said. But everything that is done must strengthen all of you.” 1 Corinthians 14:26. If you’ve never had the opportunity to be in a Spirit-filled service before, you will discover that the oldest worship on earth may be a brand new experience for you. If you have any questions following a service please don’t hesitate to take a moment to visit with Pastor Doug or you can call or email us at your convenience.

Every Sunday we have service at 10:15am which includes praise and the preaching of the Word. Come as you are, and wear whatever you feel the most comfortable in. Our praise and worship style is contemporary; we play mostly current styles of music, however we do our best to also incorporate more traditional music. Pastor Doug will always have a word “in-season” to share that has a great balance of teaching and preaching. You can check out our sermons page if you would like to hear one of his messages. Below are a few things you may experience while visiting our church at a typical Sunday service:

MONTHLY WEDNESDAY SERVICE TIMES

“Who Am I” Series- Every Wednesday at 7:00pm– “Throughout their lives many people struggle to fit in, find their reason for existence, and truly know who they are. For children of God, this does not have to be the case.

There are hundreds of names and titles in the Bible that describe the people of God. Studying these names will give you a powerful, panoramic view of who you are in Christ. Each title reveals what your purpose is presently and also the destiny unfolding before you- both in this world and the world to come.+

Fifty-two of the most powerful names that belong to the body of Christ are explained in this book/series. You will understand the meaning of these names, boldly affirm, “This is who God says I am!”, and reflect this confidence in your daily life.”

 

OTHER MONTHLY SERVICE TIMES Every month we also have a service called, The Gathering which takes place on a different day each month based on the Hebraic calendar. Click here to learn more about this service. We also have chosen to honor God by acknowledging Passover, Pentecost, Rosh Hashanah, and Feast of Tabernacles. We also have monthly Sabbath Services in order to learn why this was commanded in the Bible. For dates of these services visit our church calendar.
