What to Expect on Sunday

Most of our daily lives are filled with the fast, constantly-changing secular world.

Whether you attend the casual first service or the more traditional second service, you will hear the Word of God being preached and taught. You will hear the unchanging message of God’s love and Christ’s saving grace.

There is peace and comfort knowing that you will be worshipping the eternal Father, Son and Holy Spirit. The message is one proclaimed throughout the millenniums: "For God so loved the world that he gave his one and only Son, that whoever believes in him shall not perish but have eternal life."

We are all saved by grace. You will be greeted into the fold by friendly Christian brothers and sisters. If you are new to the Word you will find more spiritually-mature Christians to help you discover the majesty of God’s gift and encourage you as you begin your Christian walk.

God is concerned with you heart, not your clothes, economic status, family or ethnic background. Be prepared to hear yourself called “a sinner” for “ all have sinned and fall short of the glory of God," and receive the assurance of pardon. Also be prepared to experience the sweet, compelling call of our Lord as you invite Him into your heart.

You will sing and hear songs of praise, worship and prayer. You will join in congregational prayer and private prayer. You will hear passages from the old and new testaments. And you will hear Biblically-based sermons that both teach and call us to be God’s children. And yes, as is scripturally appropriate, we give tithes and offerings to further God’s work.

We encourage everyone to spiritual maturity by studying the Word. Sunday Bible study takes place in the chapel at 9:00 a.m. except for the summer months. Topics are announced ahead of time.

Come as you are! Casual clothes are mandatory in Redding’s summertime heat! You are invited to join us for a coffee fellowship time after each service.

Please stop by the visitors table and sign our guest book. If you leave your phone number we have the opportunity to call and give you a personal welcome.

Praise the Lord!
