What is a church? Sounds kinda' boring.
“Church” means “called out ones”. It is not a building or organization. Yes, we meet in a building, and have some organization, but the church are those in relationship with God through Jesus Christ. As God is everywhere present and the Creator, when we come together he is there-- and His presence is not boring, but always new, like a new creation.
What is your take on the whole marriage debate?
For us there is no debate as we humbly seek to live out God's Word. Marriage is a covenant (agreement) between a man, a woman, and God.
May I attend if I have a record of child molestation or am a registered sex offender?
As to those with a record of child molestation, no. However, we can direct you to churches who have no children attending. As to registered sex offenders, we reserve the right to consider exceptional cases. However, our answer is almost universally “no” due to our need for absolute safety for those who attend. Again, we can direct you to ministries where you will be welcome.
I like your sanctuary, can I use it or rent it for a wedding/reception/gathering?
Yes, if you are a member or in regular attendance and meet membership qualifications. We regret that we must say “no” to all others due to increased liability exposure.
Do you have a nursery where I can leave my baby/toddler?
Yes. The nursery is well-staffed during during the Bible teaching part of our service. Prior to that is the music part of the service. For that time, most people like to have their children in the service. Our small nursery is for nursing mothers with infants, the larger for the toddlers.
Can I bring my baby/toddler into the sanctuary for service?
Yes. However, if the baby is becoming a distraction as the scriptures are taught, we ask you to take the baby to the nursery.
Will you pay my mortgage/heating bill/electrical bill/motel bill/etc.?
We get a lot of phone calls asking for money. We do not do “general assistance” for Hancock County. If you are part of this fellowship or are connected to people already in the fellowship, we may. We do have requirements for those helped.
