We love to gather as a family to be encouraged and challenged, we understand that it is Jesus who has made us different has called us to join Him in bringing a message of hope, comfort and encouragement to our community. We count it an honor and privilege to declare and demonstrate the message that transformed our lives. If you are interested, then we want you to join us on this incredible mission.
Whats a service like?
Visiting a church for the first time can be nerve-racking. But having an idea of what to expect can help. There are three main parts to every Sunday service: preaching, worship, and children. A regular service normally last 1.30 hrs.
A church is a body of people who minister to each other. One of the purposes of preaching is to equip us for that and inspire us to love each other better. This might mean you’ll learn some things on how to be a better person, how to have a better marriage, or how to be more fulfilled in life—however that’s not really the point. Because without Jesus, nothing matters. It’s because of Jesus that we can be a better person. Only Jesus can make a marriage better. And true fulfillment is only found in Jesus. This means we teach from the Bible, because the Bible is all about Jesus.
Mainly through music we take time to express our love, gratitude and thankfulness to God for all he has done for us. When we focus on Him, we remove our eyes from our own problems, and we end up being encouraged in the process. Our music is part of the way in which we prepare our hearts and minds to hear the word and to respond to that word. God has blessed us with talented musicians who love Jesus and serve his church through original music and fresh takes on old hymns. Also, as part of our worship, we take communion together and give offerings to support God’s work All in all, the atmosphere is casual, reflective, and open to all.
Our Children’s church is serving children and helping them to grow in relationships with God and others. Each Sunday, your child will learn the Bible and how it relates to Jesus in an age-appropriate way. The lessons are fun and approachable and taught by committed volunteers and staff who serve Jesus by serving you and your kids. Ultimately, the goal of Mars Hill Kids is to get kids excited about Jesus and to get families talking about Jesus together throughout the week.
As someone new to the church, are there expectations of me?
Our expectation is that people would find a place where they for in. If our church is not “their church” then we want to help them find which one is. However, if someone wants to make this church their home, then we desire for them to plug in and get connected. A new person can expect to be welcomed by the Pastors and be introduced to other people and the ministries at the church.
