Going to a new church can be awkward when you do not know what to expect. Let us give you a "heads up," about what you can expect when you join us at Canyon Country Church.
WE GATHER FOR GOD
People go to church for different reasons. Even churches have different purposes for existing. The primary reason we gather on Sundays is to worship the God who offers the forgiveness of sins, the restoration of our humanity, and redemption for the world through Jesus Christ. In other words, it is more about Him than it is about us. However, by gathering, we gain a better understanding of ourselves. In a normal service, we will sing about Him and to Him. Our pastor will teach us about Him, and our hope is that everyone will encounter and connect with Him in a personal and life-transforming way.
WHAT DOES WORSHIP TIME USUALLY LOOK LIKE?
Pretty simple, actually... We sing, worship together, and hear God's Word taught with relevant application. We value being authentic and real. We realize ultimately everything we do is about worshipping our Savior Jesus Christ.
WHAT SHOULD I WEAR?
When you visit Canyon Country Church, you will find that we are not an overly formal church. We expect people to dress however they see fit. For some that may mean a tie, for others it means jeans.
ARE THERE PROGRAMS FOR YOUNG PEOPLE?
We have an active Youth and Children's Ministry. The Youth, which is 7th-12th grade, meet every Wednesday night at 7:00, and the Children's department provides classes for ages 18 months through 6th grade during all worship services. You are welcome to ask any questions you would like to our Youth Pastor Caleb Dawson or Children's Director Kaylee Rhoderick.
DO I HAVE TO GIVE MONEY?
Let God direct your heart when it comes to giving financially. Financially supporting Canyon Country Church is ultimately an act of worship to God for those who are committed to the Canyon Country Church vision and mission. We certainly have no expectation of you giving financially as a guest.
HOW CAN I GET INVOLVED?
There are so many ways to get involved at Canyon Country Church. For the different opportunities to get connected and serve check the "Serve" page or ask anyone on the leadership page, in person or by email.
WHAT KIND OF PEOPLE MAKE UP Canyon country CHURCH?
What you'll encounter when you attend Canyon Country Church is a diverse biblical community where people seek to know and love God, live in community with others, and transform the world by serving our community as we think Christ would. Practically speaking, that means some of us are just checking out Christianity for the first time, while others have been in church their whole lives. Canyon Country Church members span all different ethnicities, ages and backgrounds. Everyone is welcome to join us as we worship.
IS Canyon Country CHURCH AFFILIATED WITH ANY GROUP OR ORGANIZATION?
Canyon Country Church is affiliated with the National Association of Free Will Baptists. The roots of Free Will Baptists are easily traced to the time that our nation was founded and beyond. The Bible and the redemptive work of Jesus have always been at the center of Free Will Baptist movement. Canyon Country Church cherishes our traditions of faith. At the same time, our goal is not to reproduce denominational loyalty, but to reach out to people who are moving toward a personal, growing faith in Jesus Christ. You may never have been a part of a Free Will Baptist Church. Still, we invite you to walk with us in building a church that focuses on the highest goals of the kingdom of Christ.
