We meet in a small chapel overlooking Cook Inlet built in 1975. Huge windows look south across Turnagain Arm. An old log-sided building from the 50's was the first meeting place here.
We have two identical Sunday services: 8:00am and 11:00am, with Bible classes in between (9:40am-10:40am) for all ages. Worship songs mix traditional and contemporary, incorporating a variety of instrumentation. We stand to sing, believing it helps us to be more engaged. There is a 15-20 minute break before and after Bible classes. And yes - there's coffee (and tea).
Our services tend to traditional, yet feel informal. Some men wear ties; most do not. You will see casual to quite spiffy dress. Our focus is not wardrobe, but worship.
You won't see offering plates. People leave their gifts to the Lord in the offering box in the foyer.
We serve open Communion the first Sunday of each month. This means if you are a Christ follower, we invite you to participate.
Each week we have public prayer. No one is put on the spot, but you have opportunity to speak out loud to the congregation about your desire for prayer or praise.
Preaching of the Word of God (Bible) is normally exegetical, opening the meaning of the Scripture line by line, verse by verse. Services run about 70 - 85 minutes. Occasionally we have guest speakers and special presentations.
