What to Expect

What are services like?
SkyLight services are casual dress, a desire for worship to be in a sincere and comfortable environment, with a dedication to Word of God and how it applies to our lives today. The services can be interactive and responsive with emphasis on context, historical understanding, and understanding of words. This is so the believer can study and evaluate from scripture, truth or error, in not just the teaching and preaching but our lives as well.

What is the community like?
Our church is small and thus the community is much closer and loving toward each other due to our smaller numbers. We love to interact with each other and challenge one another to grow in our faith and outward testimony toward the world. If you want to grow and be held accountable, not to people's expectations but instead God's desire for His people, knowing our frailty and His power to uphold us... then we offer ourselves to you!

What if I'm not a Christian?
We greatly desire you to know we are a church who enjoys having guests and desire you to feel comfortable as well as welcome here. Maybe however you are just checking out biblical Christianity and aren't ready for any commitments. We would like you to know you are welcome here. Our goal is to help all people discover that a personal relationship with Jesus Christ can transform life in exciting, challenging, and fulling ways. We invite you to become a regular attendee or if God is leading you, a member of this body. Please feel free to attend any of our activities as well as one-on-one studies of scripture to help you grow in the faith. Just know that we are glad to see you and are looking forward to seeing you again!
