Thanks for your interest in our church! We want to welcome you and let you know that we are here to serve you. If you decide to visit, here are two things that you can expect when you walk through our doors.
We are Gospel People
Being “Gospel People” means that we understand the Good News about Jesus in light of the bad news about us. The bad news is that we have all blown it. All of us are sinners who are in desperate need of a savior (Romans 3:9-23). But, the good news is that Jesus lived a perfect life, died a sinless death, and rose from the grave as a free gift for us (1 Corinthians 15:3). Every day is Christmas and the “present” is forgiveness; none of us have earned it and none of us deserve it (Ephesians 2:8-10). And, that’s good news!
We are Grateful People
Being "Grateful People" means we thank God in private and we thank God in public. We thank God when we have little and we thank God when we have a lot because He provides it all (James 1:16-17). Our biggest need has been met in Jesus, so we turn to Him and say "thank you" (Colossians 2:13-14). This is why we gather together every week (Hebrews 10:23-25). We express our thanks with a warm hug and hearty handshake. We express our thanks in prayer and singing. And, we express our thanks by receiving.
Questions & Answers
If you have a question that isn’t addressed here, feel free to call our church office and let us know how we can serve you. Our number is (702) 989-1228.
What do you do during your worship service?
After a warm welcome, we start off with some singing and some praying to express our thanks. You may recognize some of the music. You will also hear a sermon from the Bible. We celebrate communion or Lord's Supper the first Sunday and Tuesday of every week.
Our Sunday morning and Tuesday evening worship services are usually between an hour to an hour and fifteen minutes long.
Will there be instruction for young children?
Yes. We love you and we love your children. Jesus wanted all of the children to come to Him and we feel the same way about your kids. We have a nursery that is staffed at every service. Our hope is that your young ones will sing and pray right along with the rest of us. At our Family Worship Service before the sermon starts, we offer an opportunity for any child to join in with our Safe Haven (children Church) Program. But all children are welcome to stay in the service.
Will you ask me to give you money?
We never ask anyone to give and we always tell our guests not to. Because God has given us everything in Christ, but many people want to give and help support our church. So we provide a time during the service for them to do so. However, no one is ever pressured to give because the Good News is ALWAYS a free gift. We just want you to come and receive what God wants to give you.
What should I wear if I visit your church?
We want you to come just as you are. We are here for you, no matter how you're dressed. So wear whatever you like because there is no dress code. Most people wear whatever makes them comfortable. That usually changes from week to week depending on the weather.
Within our church building, we have a beautiful sanctuary and a large community room with a large kitchen equipped with commercial size ovens, stoves, and refrigerators for special events and everyday use. Connected to our community room, we have large class rooms for adult, teenager, and pre-teenager Bible Study classes. We also have a dedicated room for our toddlers – fully equipped with toys, games, and Christian books for our youngest members.
