What To Expect

Services

Sunday School - 9:30 AM Worship Service - 10:30 AM Sunday Evening - 6:00 Tuesday - 7:00 PM

Welcome

Hello, we are so glad that you are considering visiting us!  This page will help you learn more about us and what to expect during your visit.

As the name of our church says, our focus is on Fellowship.  First our fellowship with God, and flowing from the followship of believers (1 John 1:3).  So we invite you to come fellowship with us as we worship our great God and Savior through song and the preaching of the Word.

Your First Visit

Although there are many options for getting together with us, we'll assume that your first visit with us will be on a Sunday morning.

Parking

The main parking area is located in front of the church building.  Additional parking is located on the left and right sides of the building.  You may also park behind the building.

Come on in!

The main entrance is at the center of the front of the building.  As you enter, there will be greeters who can provide you with a bulletin and a "Welcome" packet.  They can also help orient you and answer any questions you might have. 

The Lay of the Land

As you enter the building you will come into the foyer.  Directly in front of you is the Sanctuary where our services are held.  To your left are the class rooms, nursery, and restrooms.  To your right is our Fellowship Hall where we often gather for events.

When to Come

Our first gathering of the week is our Sunday School, which begins at 9:30 AM.  There are several Sunday School classes to choose from.  Some meet in the class rooms, one meets in the Sanctuary, and one in the Fellowship Hall.  You can find out all about our different Sunday School classes by clicking here.

The morning service begins at 10:30 AM in the Sanctuary.

There is also an evening service every Sunday evening except the last Sunday of the month ("Food Fellowship Sunday")

What About Children

Children are a blessing from the Lord and we love children here.  Families have different needs and preferences when it comes to Sunday services.  Children are welcome in the service, but you can also take advantage or our Children's Sunday School, Children's Church, and Nursery.  You can find out more by clicking here.

Attire

Wondering what to wear?  The leadership of the church dresses formally with the men wearing suits and the ladies wearing dresses.  Although some attending the services dress formally as well, the majority dress in what might be termed "modest casual".

What is a Sunday Service Like

We know that every church runs their Sunday Services a little bit different.  So, you may be wondering what to expect the first time you join us.  Although we don't always do things the same way, there is a fairly standard pattern.

We open with song, scripture reading, and announcements.  Our singing consists of hymns, and for our scripture reading we use the King James version.  This is followed by more song and our offertory.

COVID-19 has caused a bit of a change to our offertory time.  We currently do not "pass the plates" during this time, but rather use it as a time of reflection of our greatfulness for all that God has given us.  "Collection plates" are at the front of the church and you can drop something off before or after the service, or during our fellowship time.  Please do not feel obligated to give and only give if you can do so with a joyfully.

The offertory time is followed by song and our "fellowship" time.  This is when the children head to Children's church.

You might be familar with having a time to shake hands and say "Hi".  Well, we do things a little differently.  As the name of our church says, we are all about fellowship.  We believe that we are to minister Christ to one another, and you cannot minister well to people you don't know.  So we break for an "extended" fellowship time.  It is not uncommon for newcomers to wonder if the service is over because everyone gets up and starts wondering around and talking.  Don't worry, we are just getting started, so take the time to meet someone and get to know them a little.

Song calls us back from our time of fellowship.

This is followed by an expository teaching time where we are typically going through a book of the Bible verse-by-verse.  Sometimes there may be a more topical sermon for a special occassion (e.g., Mother's Day) or a short break as we transition from completing a series on one book of the Bible to another.

We finish with song and prayer.
