The church of Christ strives to be a 'visitor friendly' church. Since many of our members were at one time visitors themselves, we know how it feels on a first visit. We make it our goal to be the friendliest church you have ever visited. We aim to treat others the way we want to be treated, like Jesus said (Matthew 7:12). You'll receive a warm greeting and find assistance to locate your class or your children's classrooms. Please come in and find a comfortable seat for Bible Study and worship service. You will not be singled out, made to stand, encouraged to give any 'testimony,' or in any other way made to feel embarrassed. The services are simple, reverent, practical, Bible-based, Christ-centered, Heaven-bound and meaningful.
When you visit, you will meet people who, just like you, sincerely want to follow the teachings of the Bible and please God with their lives. You'll find that every sermon and class is based on the Bible (2 Timothy 3:16-17). In fact, members and visitors are urged to bring their own Bibles and follow along. We still strive to do Bible things in Bible ways, and to call Bible things by Bible names-nothing more or nothing less. We seek to exalt Christ in our songs, prayers, sermons, and lives (Colossians 1:18). An air of hope fills the church as we think of the beautiful promise of heaven for God's faithful children (Revelation 21:1).
The Lord's Supper is observed each Sunday. The church of Christ observes the communion every week, just as we are commanded and led in example by New Testament teachings. (cf. Acts 20:7). It is one of the highlights for the week to commemorate Christ's death and celebrate His promised return.
We hold beautiful singing that is done by all. The whole congregation sings a capella (without mechanical instruments), just as they did in New Testament times (Ephesians 5:19; Colossians 3:16). Visitors may sing along or simply listen. Many first-time visitors comment on how beautiful the singing is. Some say they find it easier to focus on the song's meaning since the words are more easily understood than with musical accompaniment.
We have free materials for all ages. You will find free booklets, pamphlets, tracts, and back issues of publications displayed in the entrance areas. These are free to any member or guest. Often there will be study materials distributed during Bible classes and worship services. A personal home Bible study (open Bible or video) is available for those who want to know more. If there is a need you have and cannot seem to find it, please ask and we will do our best to acquire it for you!
This is the place for everyone. Christ's church is made up of all kinds of people (1 Corinthians 12:1; Galatians 3:27-28). You will find members of all races, educational backgrounds, and economic levels feel comfortable in our services. We mean it when we say, 'Everybody is welcome.'
We place a high emphasis on family and Bible study. The church of Christ places stresses Bible school attendance and study for all ages. We know a Biblical education for our children is very important, and it is our God-given responsibility to assist parents in teaching them about their origin, purpose, and destiny. They should come to know their Creator, Redeemer, Lord, and Savior early in life (Ecclesiastes 12:1; Matthew 19:14). They have been born into a mixed-up world, so we try to ground them in the simple truth so they will know how to discern “good from evil” in all matters.
So bring your Bible and come for that visit you've been thinking about. We'll save you a seat. See you soon!
