What to Expect on Sunday Service

Our Worship Services begin every Sunday at 10:30am, and are usually over by noon. Before church begins, we offer coffee, tea, and refreshments in our community room. We begin our church service with some contemporary worship music played by our full band. Our team plays mostly modern worship music with some of the classics and hymns mixed in. Our congregation (or as we say… our Truth family) will make any newcomer feel welcome – right at home. There is a wonderful balance of church members of all ages. We have many young families with babies, toddlers and teens. And we have a large number of older members too. We begin our church service with everybody together in the sanctuary. About 25 minutes later, we dismiss our Sunday School children to their respective classes. Sunday School is separated into two classes. Kindergarten age and younger are in one class, while 1st through 5th graders go to another. For the adults, the sermon lessons are more educational in nature (Feel free to listed to an mp3 above for an example). We strongly believe in the importance of learning God’s Word and applying it to our lives. Please see our values and doctrinal beliefs on the home page for more information. And don’t hesitate to call and set up a time to meet with pastor Brian for any other questions.
