Who We Are
What can you expect when visiting our church?
You will find that we are just ordinary-everyday people; humbly seeking to listen and learn from the Holy Scriptures what the Lord desires for us to be and do. There is no formal dress code, you can wear what is comfortable for you. We believe God cares more about what is on the inside, than what is on the outside.
We come together as a congregation each week on the Sabbath Day (Saturday) from diverse occupations, varied interests and backgrounds, and carrying our individual cares and concerns. As we begin to worship and sing our praises to Jesus there is no diversity. We are all equal at the feet of our Lord.
The teaching we receive through the sermon and our class study time is simple and direct without rituals or classifications. We are challenged to “present ourselves to God as one approved, a workman who does not need to be ashamed and who correctly handles the word of truth.” 2 Tim. 2:15. All are free to be a part of the study and are welcome to express their point of view.
Fellowship times are an enjoyable part of our church. We share coffee before and during class time, and once a month we enjoy an all church Fellowship Meal. Other social occasions arise from time to time and we make the most of them. We need these times to get better acquainted.
As we leave the sanctuary to go to our homes, schools, communities, and businesses, we are called to be Jesus’ hands and feet where we live. This is our opportunity to apply what we have learned, knowing that we are not alone in our mission. We are a congregation that practices loving and forgiving, and offering the hope of Christ to the world. It is God’s abiding presence that goes with us as we go out into the world.
Come visit us and see what God has to say to you.
