What to Expect
Time & Location
Sunday service begins at 10:15am and typically lasts about one hour and forty-five minutes. Our church building is located 3 miles from downtown Ithaca at 1462 Slaterville Road.
"Be hospitable..." —1 Peter 4:9
An important part of our weekly gathering is the fellowship of the saints together. To help facilitate this, we have free breakfast food and drinks available at 10am. Sign up for a name badge if you don't already have one.
Worship & the Word
"Preach the Word..." —2 Timothy 4:2
We open with prayer and announcements, followed by 25 minutes of contemporary worship. We encourage families to worship together for this portion of the service. Following worship, we greet one another in the Fellowship Hall (coffee and breakfast foods provided) while the children and Sunday School teachers head to their classrooms. We resume in the sanctuary for a practical, Biblical message from a book of the Bible. Check out our current series here.
"The Lord looks on the heart..." —1 Samuel 16:7
We are more concerned with you meeting with God and getting built up in your faith than what you wear. Most of our congregation dresses casual — slacks, jeans, shorts, sandals, sneakers, dress shirts, etc. — so please come as you are.
Sunday School Classrooms
"Let the little children come to me..." —Matthew 19:14
Our building is small, but we make the best of it. Nursing mothers share a room with the 0-2 year olds. We have a 3-5 year old class and a 6-12 year old class. Each classroom is staffed by an experienced, Spirit-filled adult who loves Jesus and is concerned for your child's safety, as well as teaching them age-appropriate lessons that lead them to Christ.
