lives in the light.
We have a heart for you
We are a church with a heart for people. Following Jesus, we have weekly times of service to those at risk in our community. We enjoy times of food and laughter at picnics and fundraisers. Our worship combines traditional hymns with contemporary praise and worship. And we do all this deeply centered in several Bible study groups and small group fellowships, focusing our life together in following Christ as revealed in the Bible, the written Word of God.
We have a heart for you. We would be delighted to welcome you to visit our worship services, take part in our gathering times, act alongside us in loving ministry to others, explore becoming part of our relationships as a community in Christ. It would be great to see you…
Our worship gathering everyone together is at 10 am Sunday. A band leads us in praise and worship songs, we pray for healing in people’s lives, we sing hymns along with a wonderful pipe organ, we hear a message from the Bible, we enjoy being together in the presence of God.
During worship, our teachers lead classes for the children. Before the 10 am worship, we have vibrant study in classes for adults, studying God’s Word in its relevance to our lives.
We choose to grow, to know the joy of becoming stronger, healthier, more loving, wiser, closer to God. So in addition to the classes Sunday morning, we have very active Bible studies and small groups that meet through the week.
We have a weekly youth group gathering, and even our choir practice is like a small group experience itself, with lots of laughter and prayer! All these regular weekly gatherings are used by God’s love to help us grow deeper as a people.
Serve the Community
We are a community-minded group of Jesus followers, with a heart to serve.
The people of our church have a big heart for loving (and serving alongside) folks in our community. Every Friday in our building we host a Community Kitchen meal, to which everyone is invited—and other local organizations take turns with us providing and serving the food.
Every Wednesday from 10 am to 12 noon, our Food Pantry gives bags of food to Elkton residents who can provide proof of need. Our Financial Outreach office is open the first Wednesday each month (10 am to 12 noon), to help folks who are struggling to pay utilities and rent bills.
For help through these ministries, call us at 410-398-4636 or email us at firstname.lastname@example.org. We also work alongside and under the leadership of other compassion ministries in our area such as the Paris Foundation, Meeting Ground, and Youth Empowerment Source.
We think God has called us to loving service to the community. We would love to have you come alongside us in this calling!
Live with Purpose
In all of what we do and experience—whether worshipping, growing, or serving—we desire to be centered on Jesus Christ.
Our purpose is to bring people to Jesus, nurture people in Jesus, and send them out to serve Jesus. This is because Jesus has lovingly reached and rescued us. As a people we want to live in gratitude to him, live under the shaping power of his Spirit, and act out his love in our relationships with others.
We hope you will consider “checking us out!”
