We have Bible classes for all ages Sunday mornings (10:00AM) and Wednesday evenings (7:30PM) and a Children’s Worship during the Sunday morning sermon. During the school year, we have a monthly Junior Youth night (4 year olds to fourth graders) where we alternate movie nights and game nights. These activities conclude with a brief devotional lesson. In the summer, we have a kickball game every Wednesday evening and enjoy a meal as a family before Bible classes. When you include our Trunk-or-Treat, VBS, youth rallies, and summer camp, you see we keep our young people busy with quality programs!

In our services we try to create an atmosphere that is both reverent and personal. We are regular people trying to do things as God has directed. More information about our worship services and what to expect as a visitor can be found on the What to Expect page of this website.

No, we do not have rigid requirements regarding the style of our members’ dress. In keeping with our goal of showing reverence to God, we encourage anyone who attends to dress in such a way that God is honored. For some, this means wearing a business suit. For others, this means the same business casual attire they wear to work. We ask that modesty be a priority (1 Timothy 2:8-10).

No, we are not a part of a denomination. We hold out hope that the church would be one. How could we pray, as Jesus did, that His followers would be one if we are content that various groups have broken apart and have given themselves new names? Division is contrary to God’s plan for the church (I Corinthians 1:10-13; John 17). Denominations usually have national or international governing bodies. This is not how the New Testament says the church should be governed. Each congregation is to be led by a group of elders (Acts 14:23; Titus 1:5-9). For more information about elders, please see the Leadership page.
Denominations often follow creeds, confessions, and disciplines in addition to God’s Word. We have no such documents. We seek to follow the plan for the church laid out in the New Testament alone. We do not want to add or subtract from the truth we find there.

We believe the Bible is the inspired Word of God (2 Timothy 3:16-17). We seek to follow the guidance we find there in both personal and church life. We encourage our members to read and study the Bible for themselves. We understand that some sections of the scripture are written with figurative language (such as the poetry in the book of Psalms), but all scripture should be handled with care in interpretation (2 Timothy 2:15).
