It can be intimidating to walk into an unfamiliar church for the first time. It’s hard to know where to go and what to expect. We understand that! At Wyoming Park Bible, we want you to feel comfortable and welcomed.
9:30 a.m. – 10:45 a.m. - Sunday Morning Worship Service
10:45 a.m. – 11:00 a.m. - “Cookie Time” in Fellowship Hall
11:00 a.m. – 12:00 a.m. - Bible Fellowship Groups (all ages)
We have services at 9:30 a.m. on Sunday mornings. People wear what they feel comfortable in, (which ranges anywhere from “business casual” to jeans and a T-shirt) so please do the same! When you first arrive at one of our Sunday services, you’ll most likely be greeted at the door and given a weekly bulletin and a “Visitor’s Card.” We encourage you to fill out this card and put in the offering plate when it passes later on in the service. We use the information to reach out and welcome you later in the week. Feel free to provide as much or as little information as you feel comfortable.
During our service, we read portions of the Bible, and sing songs of worship to God. Our pastors, John Dubois and Steven Kopp endeavor to preach authentic, clear, accurate and practical messages centered on God and His Word (the Bible).
Nursery (ages 0-3) childcare is provided for the entire Sunday Morning Worship Service and Sunday School. Children ages 3-8 will be dismissed to Children’s Church (Preschool Pond and The Garden) during the musical portion of the service. In addition to Children’s Church, “Sermon Notes for Young Disciples” are available (in the back of the auditorium) to help kids (who stay for the sermon) follow along during the message. There are also Activity Bags available for younger children.
After the service, we invite you to exit through the front of the auditorium and enjoy some refreshment in our South foyer. This is one way to get to know other families and individuals in our church. We encourage you to get to know us at your own pace. Don’t be surprised, however, if many people come to welcome you and introduce themselves!
At 11:00 we have Bible Fellowship Group Discussion / Sunday School for all ages. During this time, each of the classes use different methods to discuss and cement the different aspects of the big idea of the sermon. If you are confused at where to go, or which age group your kids belong in, please feel free to ask!
Jesus is everything to us. We follow all of his teachings, but even more importantly we follow him. We can follow him, because he is still alive! He is more powerful than death itself, and he proved it by raising himself from the dead. He is God, and he is the judge of all people. He is the King of the earth, and some day he is going to come back to earth to establish his reign as the perfect and holy King. It is because of his love for us that he died for us, and so we who trust him love him in return, and we’ve given our lives to him.
Jesus says that all of those who believe in him are his people. He says that we are like his “body” – his living and moving presence on the earth until he comes back to earth himself.
So, being part of a local church is really important! It’s important because we learn about Jesus’ Word (the Bible) from one another, we love each other, and we know that if we serve Jesus together we will accomplish so much more than we ever could alone.
Being part of a church that follows Jesus is just another one of the ways that we obey Jesus and follow him, because he told us to be connected to one another and love one another as members of one “body” together.
