FAQ (Frequently Asked Questions)

What is your Sunday schedule?
Worship services are held at 9:45 am. Sunday School meets at 8:30 am. Click Here for more details.

What do I wear?
You'll see people in everything from shorts to suits on Sundays. Our concern isn't what's on the outside, but what's on the inside. Come as you are. Besides, Jesus accepts us as we are when we come to Him. Why shouldn't we?

Which door do I come in at?

If you are attending our Sunday Morning Worship Service there are several ways into the church but the easiest and most direct entrance are the main doors on the far north side of the church. (See picture)

If you want our church offices please enter on the SIDE DOOR on the far south side of the church. (see picture)

Absolutely! Our youth ministry is for youth grades 6th – 12th grade. They are called Turning The Tide Youth Ministries. Ignite (for grades 7th-8th) meets Wednesday nights from 6-8pm. Radiate (for grades 9th-12th) meets Sunday nights from 6-8pm. Feel free to contact Jon Fiester if you have any more questions. Click here to see our youth webpage.

In the church I grew up in, some people had "their" seats. What if I unknowingly sit in somebody's seat?
Don't worry about it. Sit wherever you want. Nobody has a claim on a seat. In fact, we'll even let you save seats for your family and friends!

May I bring my venti, three-pump vanilla, two-pump caramel, non-fat, no foam, extra hot, upside-down, stirred, extra-extra caramel drizzle, caramel machiatto into church?
Yes -- but only if you bring one for the rest of us. (Just kidding, of course. Kinda.) Yes, you may bring your drink with you. By the way, why not save your money and get coffee at church? It's free and usually comes with a doughnut!

What is Bible Fellowship Church’s worship like?
Our church has a contemporary worship style that utilizes updated arrangements of hymns and praise songs to the accompaniment of drums, guitars, and piano. However, the focus of our worship is not on being contemporary; rather it is on seeking God's presence through the experience of authentic worship. This means worship for us is not a passive experience performed by the folks up front, but the people's ministry to God.

What is the preaching like?
Helpful, without being boring. The Sunday morning teaching is an integration of biblical exposition and application. The ultimate aim of this teaching is to show how God can help in day to day living. Our mission as a church is “A Place To Grow!” And we want all of our people to grow and mature to a closer relationship with Jesus Christ.

What does Bible Fellowship Church believe about the Bible?
We believe the Bible is God's Word. The Bible for us is a blueprint for Christian living. Additionally, the Bible reveals in intimate detail the God who loves us and with whom we share a vital and personal relationship. Click here for most details.

Is your church handicap accessible?
Yes! You can get almost anywhere with a wheel chair. We have designed our building to be as handicap accessible as possible. We also have wheel chairs available if you need one when you come.

What is your church's denomination?
We belong to the Mennonite Brethren Conference of churches.  Let us answer some of the questions we get from people who first hear about our denomination, and who have not yet visited our church personally...

- Yes, we do have electricity, can wear make up, and drive cars like "normal" American citizens

- No, the men do not have to grow beards or the women wear bonets

In fact if you haven't yet visited our church and seen just how loving our congregation is, and the God we serve is, the best way to describe us is, we are an evangelical, Bible believing, contemporary worshiping followers of Jesus Christ.  Our U.S. Mennonite Brethren family is one of 15 national conferences around the world which total about 300,000 members. This global community is called International Community of Mennonite Brethren (I.C.O.M.B.).
