What to Expect
Our church campus has a small parking lot along Mowry Ave. in front of our Fellowship Hall; feel free to head past this building to our larger parking lot near the Sanctuary. In the main parking lot, you'll find parking spaces reserved for visitors, which you are welcome to use.
Our church is situated in the demographically diverse Tri-City area, and we take joy in as much as our local body can reflect the "every tribe, tongue, kindred and nation" Church. Wherever you're from, we trust you'll find a warm welcome at Lighthouse.
At our typical Sunday service, you'll find a range of attire represented, from more traditional church dress to casual clothing. Don't worry if you're not sure what to wear; rest assured that you'll be welcome!
Our Worship Service
At Lighthouse Bible Fellowship, we believe that God should be worshiped with the deepest reverence, for He is worthy of all honor and praise. At the same time, we believe that in God's presence, there is fullness of joy (Psa. 16:11).
At our typical Sunday worship service, we begin with worship of our Lord through song, then greet one another, share brief announcements from the bulletin, pray and read selected Scripture passages. These are followed by the preaching of God's Word, then a closing song and benediction.
Our Sunday service typically opens with a traditional hymn, followed by a blend of contemporary hymnody and praise songs. Our singing is accompanied by a wide range of instruments as we exalt the name of the Lord together in worship.
Since we believe that the proclamation of God's Word is central in the life of the church, the sermon occupies the bulk of our Sunday worship service, with a typical sermon running around 45 minutes in length. Our sermons tend to be expository, meaning that the message of the sermon is centered on the message of the text, unfolding the truth of the Bible verse by verse.
We are blessed to have many children attending Lighthouse, and we have a number of ministries designed to address their unique needs, from a loving nursery to a graded Sunday School program. After our worship through song has concluded in the Sunday service, children are dismissed to attend Sunday School; however, parents who wish to keep their children with them during the sermon are welcome to do so.
Opportunities to Connect
After joining us for worship on Sunday, feel free to take advantage of the opportunities to further connect with the body, whether in filling out a worship registration card, seeking prayer or Biblical counsel, or planning to join us for our midweek "Everybody In" meeting. Also, our Connections Ministry would be delighted to invite you to lunch and help you learn more about getting involved with Lighthouse.
