What to Expect
On Sunday, we have a 8:45 AM and 11:00 AM worship time with a Life Group Bible study time at 10:00 AM. We chat and catch up on the week around donuts and coffee. There will be people dressed in suits and others dressed in shorts and t-shirts. We like for people to be comfortable and come as they are.
Our Wednesday activities begins at 6:30PM. We have a multitude of Bible studies for men, women, and couples to youth, young adult, and senior adults. We also have AWANA for the children.
When you arrive on our campus you will be greeted by a lot of smiling faces. Our greeters are prepared to answer your questions. At our Welcome Center, you can get some information about our church and the ministries that happen on our campus.
During the church time, we have a band on stage with a team of people that lead us in song. Our lead pastor, Ricky Smith, usually preaches for about 30 minutes. Our services are about an hour long.
Our Lead Pastor tends to deliver sermons by examining a passage of Scripture and how it directs us to Jesus and the Gospel. Whether we are being challenged about life, our marriages, living Godly lives, or fulfilling our purpose, the message is always directed back to the cross.
While we don’t use a strict form of liturgy around here, we do still have a liturgy. A regular week in week out, come to church, sing, listen to the word preached, giving, and from time to time the table, liturgy. And maybe we can learn something from those that more readily admit their dependence on a liturgical system. Maybe the passionate love for God’ s glory is wrapped up in some small way with the way that we worship, and the constant return to what we do each and every week.
It is important to realize that the actions we participate in on a Sunday morning are not just empty rituals, but carefully constructed opportunities for us to be formed by the Holy Spirit into the men and woman God has called us to be. If we become easily bored and tired of a repetition of our weekly service, maybe it isn’t the service that should change, but instead the way we think about the importance of that repetition.
As we gather each week let us begin to think on these things, and use our opportunity as a gathered church to put into practice what we believe, and in so doing believing more and more what we practice.
Staff & Teachers
Our staff of trained, competent and caring volunteers have all undergone a background check. In addition, they are screened by one of the Pastors of the church. We believe your child deserves the best, and we do our part to ensure they have a safe, exciting experience while here.
Check In & Out
All children should be checked in at the kiosks located by the entrance to the children’s area. After your initial visit, you will be assigned a scan tab that may be used to access entrance to numerous events for your child in a speedy manner. Bring it with you each week, and check in/out will happen in a matter of seconds. Please make us aware of any allergies or special needs. Your cell phone will be noted when you check in. Please place your phone on vibrate and keep it available in the event of an emergency need. Your cell number may also be used to pick up your child if the pick-up sticker becomes lost.
Your child will be engaged in active learning of the Scriptures while here today! They will have inviting, up to date and relevant lessons. They will be taught the importance and the joy of worshipping our Lord and Savior. The lesson will encourage them the next day in school or at home. Sometimes, things get active; therefore, we encourage you to dress your child comfortably. You will be able to follow up the lesson at home by accessing our web site, and/or by visiting Studio252TV.com. The access code needed is SCO2 M6KG BKXE KTWK.
We are a Well-Baby nursery. We ask that all children be fever-free for 24 hours WITHOUT the aid of fever reducing medicines. Also, please keep them home if they’ve vomited or had diarrhea in the last 24 hours or if they have any of the following: pink-eye, unexplained rash, cloudy or runny nose, or any communicable disease. We seek your support in this.
