What happens during the church service?
While not every service is exactly the same we typically will spend around 25 minutes worshipping God in song. We will then have a time of prayer and exhortation; some announcements about upcoming events, receive an offering, and then a sermon is given with an opportunity to respond.
What can I expect during worship time?
We believe worship should be participatory, that is, that everyone is invited to worship God. That is why we display the words on the screen. You may see people lift their hands in worship, perhaps kneel during worship.
These are responses to God that are Biblical, that is, we are encouraged to do them according to Scripture. You may hear someone worship in what is referred to as ‘tongues’.
What can I expect during the sermon?
The Senior Pastor typically gives the sermon and attempts to share a sermon that is inspiring, thought provoking and relevant. Without shame, it must be Biblically accurate, that is, everything said needs to be supported and agree with what is written in the Bible. The Bible is our standard for preaching and for living. It will generally be about 30 minutes long, followed by an opportunity to respond to what was spoken
