So, you have questions...

What should I wear?
 

  • We believe that God cares much more about what's on the inside of a person than on outward appearances, so we hope you will dress comfortably and modestly.  We also believe that our Sunday morning worship gatherings are a sacred time, and therefore many people choose to "dress up."  You will find many people in casual attire, and a few people in suits.
  • Know you will be welcomed and accepted no matter what you wear.


What will I experience?

  • We gather on Sunday mornings to worship God through music, prayer, scripture reading, and sermon.  We sing hymns and worship songs from many styles and time periods accompanied by piano, organ, drums, guitars and other instruments occaisionally.  Each time we gather, we pray for God to speak to us individually and corporately and seek to respond to God in faith.

Can I bring the kids? 

  • Yes you can! We would love for your entire family to be a part of our church family.  Children are a vital part of our community and have a great time learning about the love of God.  
  • Your children are welcome in worship with you, or we have a separate children’s service during our 11:00 AM. service for children who are potty trained through Kindergarten.  Children will be invited to go out to children's church following the children's sermon.  We call this our Extended Session.  There children will have a snack and an age appropriate lesson.  For smaller children, we have a wonderful nursery available during our services.


How do I get connected?

  • The simplest way to get connected is to just show up. Our hope is that our church family will welcome you into our community. Joining a Sunday School class is a great way to meet new people and get involved.   How do I become a member? We'd love for you to come and join our community!  Here are the ways folks join us.

 

  1. 1.  Baptism following a public profession of faith in Jesus Christ 
  2. 2.  By transfer of letter from another Baptist church
  3. 3.  By statement of faith in Jesus Christ.
