What to Expect

What To Expect

At Community Bible Chapel you will discover a warm family dedicated to following Jesus. From the moment you walk up to the building you can expect…

People Like You

We are a diverse community across lines of race, age, and economic status. You will fit in here.

A Warm Greeting

A heartfelt greeting is part of what makes a church a church. We believe that everyone is made in the image of God and has tremendous value and so you deserve nothing less. Our welcome team is here to help you get oriented, settled, and comfortable.

Hot Coffee

There’s nothing like the smell of good coffee (or tea) to warm you up.

Fun

We have a casual atmosphere where friendships can form, relationships deepen, and we enjoy the process. If God is as good as we say He is, then it follows that it will be a lot of fun enjoying Him and His people! 

An Invitation to Converse

We are glad you are here and are excited to get to know you, so you can expect that our friendly members will say hello. For some guests this is desired. But we realize that for others this isn't wanted. So if you would rather be left alone, please excuse our introductions and explain that you are here just to observe. We totally understand and we won't be offended. 

Specific Questions

What should I wear?

There is no dress code. Please wear whatever you feel comfortable in. Our members wear a wide range from raggedy jeans to business casual attire. The pastor usually has a button up shirt (no tie) with slacks and dress shoes and he is on the more formal end of how people dress.

Is there childcare?

Yes. We provide childcare. Learn more about our Children's Ministry.

Sunday Services

What should I expect from a Sunday service?

Worship

Our services include singing songs to God. We love and sing all kinds of music, from hymns to contemporary. Through these songs we connect with God and with each other from our soul. 

Bible

We believe God has spoken to us and given us His message through the Bible and so we discuss the Bible in our services. If you have a Bible, feel free to bring one. If you don't, no worries, there will be one for you to use in the pews. In fact, if you need a Bible, feel free to take one home with you.

Communion

Jesus instructed His followers to remember His death on the cross when they meet through communion. You do not have to be a member to take communion here at CBC. As long as you are a believer in Jesus we invite you to join us in communion. If you do not want to participate that is not a problem. Feel free to pass the tray on to the next person.

Interaction

In many church services the congregation sits and watches the proceedings. We are not opposed to that style, but we do include some elements in some of our services where our congregation participates together. For instance, we may have a time where people gather together to pray for one another or to share insights from the sermon. We are a family and we enjoy sharing together with one another. However, we recognize that not everyone feels comfortable participating with strangers. So, if someone invites you to join them but you would rather not, feel completely free to say "pass" and we will leave you alone. Simply sit back and watch and observe how we love each other.
