Plan to Visit Us
We know meeting someone for the first time can be intimidating, and going to a new church for the first time can be nerve-racking. Let me walk you through the flow of an average Sunday service, and some of the things you are to expect at our church.
The flow and progression of the service
Our service is on Sunday mornings at 10:00am.
In total, Our service lasts for about 1 hour. Services begin with our band leading the church in
Worship - song lyrics are projected onto the screens so you can sing along and/or engage with Worship however you feel most comfortable. We generally have three opening songs.
We have what we call (Moment of Fellowship), it is a meet-and-greet time for everyone to just to say hi and good morning.
Then we have our Announcements, usually Elder Greg Suttie & Renee Barke get up on the stage and let us know what is coming up; and then they dismiss the children to Sunday school.
Elder Derek Brown then comes to the front and reads from the Bible and Prays.
We pass around a bag to everyone and if you feel led to give do so, but by no means feel that you were obligated to.
While the bag (offering) is being passed our Pastor, (DR. Pastor Steve Barke) will be setting up and preparing for the sermon.
When the sermon is finished we do one more worship song. After every service we have a complimentary lunch and in Stevens Hall (and no it is not named Stevens Hall after our pastor. Sometimes it's just coffee and snacks and others times it's a full-on meal.
More Information About Your Kids
Regardless of your kids age they are always welcome to stay in the service, but between the ages of 1-8 years old they are also able to go in the nursery. For the nursery age group it is recommended that you come a little early because they usually they are dropped off by the parents at the nursery before they enter the sanctuary. Especially with this age group we make a point of having a check-in process for security reasons, for the children. The child gets a name tag with a security code on it, and the parent gets a subsequent label with the same code on it so we only release the child to the person who brings back this code (that is when regenerated). The whole process only takes a few minutes but do come a little early so you don't miss the beginning of the service.

For the older children between the ages of 9-15 they would go into the service until the children are dismissed then they would go to Sunday School.

Communion is the remembrance of the body and blood of Jesus that was broken and poured at the cross. Taking Communion does not only remind us of his suffering but also shows us the amount of love Jesus had for us. We have it at the very end of the service before the last song.
We have no dress code at all, we have people come in board shorts and flip-flops, to semi-formal.
And by far the MOST important thing for you to know about us; is that here at Beacons Bible Church we truly become family. If you're looking for a bigger church where you can basically be lost in the crowd, we are not that. We genuinely make an effort to get to know YOU.
We hope to see you soon!
The first Sunday of every month we have Communion.
