What are services like?
Blended style of worship and diverse Scriptural teaching. Very friendly and accepting to all people. Traditional and contemporary style of preaching with most messages designed to be open and more directed toward enabling free will choice of Discipleship in Christ. Music has more of a blue grass flavor including many uses of instrumentation. Guitar, Mandolin, Keyboard, organ, etc. No drums due to the acoustical design of the sanctuary. It is not a contemporary style service.
The church is committed to creating the opportunity for family worship. If a child wishes to stay in service with the parent then they are welcomed. If a child wishes to attend the Children's worship during the same time, that is fine. We have a professionally staff nursery for children under the age of 3 years.
What is the community like?
The Leipers Fork Community is best described as a laid back community that is considered a tourist attraction location with the State of Tennessee. Some have described as a modern day Mayberry type community. It is designated as a Main Street USA village.
Very musically inclined with three main restaurants and many shops.
Very friendly people.
What if I'm not a Christian?
Church is for everyone, regardless. It is our hope that through the example of Christ lived out before all people that the reality of God's love will be experienced and one will respond to the wooing of the Holy Spirit and come to accept God's grace, no matter how long it takes.
