Frequently Asked Questions

  • I haven't been to church in a while. Will everyone stare at me if I show up?

    No, and you will not be alone. Each week we have the privilege to worship with individuals who are here for the first time. As a guest, you don’t have to worry about being singled out. We won’t call attention to you or treat you differently from everyone else.

  • When I come, where do my kids go?

    We value being able to teach children about Jesus alongside their peers and friends as well as seeing the importance of parents and kids expressing their faith together. During our worship services, everyone is together in our auditorium. To assist young families, we have a training room in the back of the auditorium and a staffed nursery for children two and under. We have Bible classes for each age group or grade. Drop by our Welcome Center for a list of classes or to get help finding a class for your kids or yourself.

  • What should I expect on a typical Sunday?

    It’s our goal for you to experience a welcoming place to worship God and be encouraged while you’re here. Each week you can expect us to pray, sing, take communion, give, share good news, and hear a message from the Bible. Our worship service lasts about an hour on Sunday mornings. You’ll be able to meet people at our worship service, but we also highly recommend visiting a Bible class, where you’ll be able to get to know others in a smaller setting.

  • I notice your church is a "Church of Christ;" what exactly does that mean?

    This term carries with it several important meanings, but at the heart of it, we are part of a restoration movement of Christians who believe in only using the Bible as our source of teaching and practice; the unity of Christians can best be found by laying aside what we prefer for what is taught and seen in Scripture.

    Although all Churches of Christ strive for this, each congregation is autonomous. There is no national council or creed that governs us, nor are we a part of a denomination, but instead we are led by congregational elders who spiritually guide us. So, if you have worshiped with another group of believers who use “Church of Christ” in their name, we may or may not be exactly like them in all our teaching or practices, but we both hold to the belief that the authority and unity of Christ for all Christians is found in Scripture.

  • I've come for a few Sundays now; how can I get more connected to this church?

    There are a few different avenues that will help you get connected: (1) fill out a connect card and someone will contact you, (2) attend a Sunday and/or Wednesday Bible class for better opportunities to get to know others in a smaller environment, (3) choose some events or ministries from the bulletin or website to get involved in, (4) consider joining the church family here by placing your fellowship with us.

  • What is “the Lord’s Supper”?

    Within Scripture, we see that the purpose of the Lord's Supper (also known as communion) is for Christians to remember Jesus’ life and sacrifice and the salvation we have in Him. It is also a time of fellowship for those who are in a covenant relationship with Christ, as we take the bread and cup in anticipation of the return of Christ.

  • I'm new; should I give?

    Every Sunday, as part of our worship, we have the opportunity to give back to God. The collected funds go to a wide range of things: world missions, local outreach, building maintenance, support of staff, and various ministries. We find it a blessing to see God work through the collective offering of our church family. You are invited to be a part of this, but there is no pressure to participate.

  • You don't have any instruments during the singing; what's that about?

    As previously stated, we strive, although imperfectly at times, to practice and live as instructed and seen in the New Testament. Since we only have examples of Christians singing in the New Testament, and according to church history, for the first several centuries Christians simply sang, we choose to follow that teaching and example. If you are new, don’t worry if you don’t know the songs or even if you think you can’t sing; there is a lot of encouragement in everyone taking part together.

Take a step in your faith.

Pathway of Discipleship

One of the primary purposes of having leaders in the church is “to equip the saints for the work of ministry, for building up the body of Christ, until we all attain to the unity of the faith and of the knowledge of the Son of God, to mature manhood, to the measure of the stature of the fullness of Christ” (Ephesians 4:12-13). Therefore, it is our desire that each person in our church family grow in Christ, love one another as Christ loved us, and serve others within the church and throughout our community. It is our prayer that everyone in our church family commits themselves to a life of these pursuits for God’s glory. As a church, we strive to provide opportunities that will help us, as followers of Christ, to collectively accomplish these goals.

We believe through the life of Jesus and the inspired teachings to the church, God has guided us in how we can be spiritually mature and healthy. As shepherds, we believe the following practices will help followers of Jesus live lives that glorify God and fulfill His calling of what the church should be and do. We call it our Pathway of Discipleship because as leaders we will intentionally commit resources toward providing these opportunities for you to grow in your faith and relationship with Jesus Christ. The Pathway of Discipleship provides a tangible guide in how we, as followers of Christ, can grow in Christ, love one another, and serve others.
