What to expect

When you visit you will find as you come in that it is a casual environment where people come as they are.

You are welcome to visit the Connection Cafe where you can enjoy coffee, hot cocoa, tea, and water.  We begin the service at 10:00AM.

We have a great band that will sing a few contemporary Christian songs and then we will share some announcements.

We will then dismiss the children to Children's Church where they will hear an age appropriate bible story, enjoy singing, activities and crafts.

Next our pastor will share a timely and relevant message that is taught from the bible.

Every message finds its way back to the main purpose we gather.

The main purpose we gather is to share the love of God through His Son Jesus Christ.

We believe He was sent to save us all and redeem our lives today and for eternity.

Each message is typically 40-45 minutes and then we respond to the message through worship.

We worship Jesus with our possessions by giving, with our hearts by praying and taking communion, with voices by singing, and with our lives as we go out into the world and walk in faith.

You'll notice the children will be returning from Children's Church around this time so they can worship with us as we close the service . Our service wraps up around 11:30 am. Just in time for lunch.

After the service there will be time for new visitors to check in at guest central to receive a gift. This is our way of saying thank you for taking the time to check us out.

There you can hear what is next for you and your family.

Before you leave be sure to take some time to meet some of the Encounter family and enjoy some after service fellowship and goodies in the Connection Cafe.

Thanks for wanting to know more about Encounter and we hope that you will take the time to check us out.
