Frequently Asked Questions
What should I wear on Sunday?
We invite you to wear whatever makes you most comfortable. There is no dress code. When you visit, you will see a variety of dress: coats and ties, dresses, polo shirts, and jeans. Come as you are.
How would you describe worship?
The worship service is traditional with a blend of contemporary elements, liturgical with an informal family feel, and lasts one hour. The congregation sings traditional hymns and praise choruses, and music and preaching play a central role.
Will my family or me be called out?
We value your privacy, and to that end invite you to share your name and address with us by way of a visitor card, which you will find in the pew. There is a brief time of greeting before worship; however, none of these should draw widespread attention to you or your family. If you desire less interaction and more privacy, the balcony provides a bit more anonymity and a nice view.
What kind of Baptists are you?
We proudly affiliate with the Cooperative Baptist Fellowship (CBF). As a CBF partner, we share in the support of missionaries around the globe and advocate for historic Baptist distinctive, like freedom and responsibility. Most Baptists in our area would describe us as "different." Our pastor is glad to speak with you about just what that means.
