Welcome my friend! You have found yourself knocking on the door of Concord Bible Church for one reason or another. Let me try to help prepare you in the event you plan on visiting us on a Sunday morning. You may have some of the following questions.
What kind of a church are you?
We are a Bible believing Evangelical Free church that focuses on exalting God through our Sunday morning service. We attempt to do this through the picture laid out by the early church in Acts 2:42. We attempt to lead you in exalting God through music, prayer, fellowship, giving and teaching. Concord Bible Church traditionally has been a loving church that is devoted to Christ and one another – our goal is that anyone who visits would experience that very thing. Come join us and be inspired.
Are there programs for my kids?
Yes, we have full nursery and children’s programming through 5th grade during the service.
Do I need to dress a certain way?
Yes, we would approve of you wearing clothes! We believe that your worship to the Lord is an ongoing act that is not regulated to Sunday morning in a building. Therefore, what is in your heart concerning your comfort in preparing for worship is where we want you to be. We have a variety of different styles of attire on any given Sunday morning. You might find the Pastor in a suit and tie or jeans and a button down shirt, come as your are – man looks on the outward appearance, but God looks upon the heart.
How can I get more information?
Make sure you receive one of our visitor packets from the greeters or ushers. Inside you will find details about CBC and a visitor card that you can fill out for further contact with the Pastor. You may also email our pastor for more information.
I would like prayer or spiritual help, how can I meet with a leader?
When you arrive, please let one of the greeters know what your need is and they will help you. If you arrive late, please wait and seek out the Pastor – he would love to speak with you.
