What to Expect

What are services like?
Our worship services have a combination of praise and worship songs in the beginning followed by traditional hymns. We do have a choir that sings occasionally but no robes are worn. Our pastor preaches from God's Word with PowerPoint slides and videos as additions to his sermon.

What is the community like?
Our community is middle income structured with many housing subdivisions. Our church is set off of Opelika Road but not gated and the community as a whole can come and visit.

What if I'm not a Christian?
We invite you to come and listen and have an open spirit to what you hear. We will not single you out nor make you feel uncomfortable. We do not have a time in the service for mingling due to Covid-19. We do not have a time for questions during the service but the pastor is very open to answering questions after the service.
