SCHEDULE OF OUR MEETING TIMES:
9:00 am – Sunday Prayer Time
9:30 am – Adult Bible Study
10:30 am – 10:55 am Meet & Greet Donuts & Coffee Time
10:55 am – Sunday Worship Celebration
Our service is a blended or convergence style. In simplest terms, convergence worship is “the coming together of historic and contemporary worship”. All the elements of worship facilitate entering God’s presence. “Shout for joy to the Lord, all the earth, burst into jubilant song with music…” Psalm 98:4
Scripture is always the basis for pastor’s sermon, we then add visuals on the screen arranged to emphasize how God addresses us through the Word. “Preach the Word; in season and out of season; correct, rebuke and encourage – with great patience and careful instruction,” 2 Timothy 4:2

Wednesday Nights at the NAZ
6:30 – 7 pm – Family Meal
You don’t have to struggle to feed the family on Wednesdays, we’ve made it easy for at least one night of the week… Join us for a full meal, desserts and great fellowship!
Have you noticed how much ministry Jesus did around the dinner table? Here are some examples. For ‘starters’, pardon the pun, two meals, the last supper and the feeding of the 5,000, are recorded in all four gospels. Also Jesus’ meal with Levi the tax collector and his shadowy friends is found in all but John’s gospel. We add the feeding of the 4,000, found in both Mark and Matthew. Total these up and we have four meals, found in thirteen passages! But there are many more. We think ‘fellowship meals’ are formative for the mission of the local church today. We call it the ministry of the stomach! FAITH, FOOD & FELLOWSHIP
7:00 pm – Adult Bible Study & Prayer
On Wednesday night the adults dig deep into scripture. Our ultimate goal in teaching, is that we all truly understand the scripture and can apply it to our daily walk. Join us as we discuss the scripture and grasp what God’s Word has for us each week. We end the evening with prayer for the needs of our church family, our community and our world. “Let the message of Christ dwell among you richly as you teach and admonish one another with all wisdom through psalms, hymns, and songs from the Spirit, singing to God with gratitude in your hearts.” Colossians 3:16
7:00 pm – Children and Student Activities
Our children and student workers have a great time with the students as we teach them faith based living. Did you know that 85% of Christians accepted Jesus as their personal savior between the ages of 8 & 14, we call this the 8/14 Window. We are intentional in making this happen with our students. Jesus said, “Let the little children come to me, and do not hinder them, for the kingdom of heaven belongs to such as these.” Matthew 19:14
NAZARENE MINISTRY SAFE : Minors – The Zero Tolerance Policy
“Now it is required that those who have been given a trust must prove faithful.” 1 Corinthians 4:2
The Church of the Nazarene has adopted a zero tolerance policy for sexual misconduct and inappropriate behavior with minors. All workers, leaders, and pastoral staff are to be above reproach in their conduct and to act in the best interest of others. This requires not only that they themselves refrain from engaging in any abusive or suspicious behavior involving minors; they will also be required to report without delay to the proper authorities anyone seen engaging in such behavior.

We want to be your church family. Join us and we will love you as Christ loves us!
See you soon!
