What are worship services like?

As you enter our sanctuary an usher will greet you and hand you a printed worship bulletin. Just before worship begins one of our ministers will make announcements. Included in our services is congregational singing of hymns and /or choruses, an invocation, a welcome and an informal greeting of those sitting around you. You will not be singled out, asked to stand and be recognized as a visitor, but we would appreciate it if you would complete the "Welcome" flap on the bulletin and place it in the offering plate when passed. This is the only gift we ask of our guests.

During the 10:45 a.m. service we have Children's Church. This is located in the smaller building. The children will be escorted from the sanctuary by the Children's Ministry Director when announced.

Our Sunday night and Wednesday night services are similar but more informal.

On Sunday mornings some will wear their "Sunday Best. The men in our congregation wear anything from suits to casual pants and shirts. The ladies wear dresses, skirts or suits. Some come in slacks. Sunday and Wednesday evenings are more casual. Jeans are worn by many during these services. We cannot stress this point enough: WE WELCOME YOU HOWEVER YOU COME DRESSED!

How do I become a member?

First of all, membership is not required. You can always attend our services and events as a guest. However, when you are ready to make a commitment and further your journey with our Lord, and desire to join our church family as a member, there are three ways to proceed:

            By Profession of Faith and Baptism “ Those making a public profession of personal faith in Jesus Christ as Savior and Lord are received into the membership awaiting baptism.

            By Letter from another Baptist Church “ For persons who are members of another Baptist church. We will write to the previous church for transfer of letter.

            By Statement of Faith “ For persons who are saved and have been baptized by immersion but are not members of another Baptist Church.

We ask that you come forward during the invitational hymn at any of the services. The pastor will be down front to greet you and present you to the church. Afterwards, you remain at the front of the church and the church family comes forward to welcome you into our church family.
