What To Expect
We are delighted that you are thinking about worshiping at The Anchor. Thank you for your interest! Services at The Anchor are a little different than a traditional church service. Let us know if you have any questions!
We talk about Jesus!
Ok...most churches do this. But this is why we exist and why we do what we do. We love Jesus. We love talking about Jesus and we love encouraging each other to love Jesus better. None of us is perfect. We all need a Savior...which is why Jesus is so important. Our goal is to treasure Jesus with all our hearts in every aspect of our life.
We meet at 4 PM on Sunday afternoon.
We decided to meet on Sunday afternoon because it is an easier time for young families, people that work night shifts, and people that work in local businesses during the summer to meet. It also allows us to spend more time with our families on Sunday morning and to be more involved in our community during the day.
We like being together.
We have people of all ages at Anchor Church and we like being together. We don't have nursery, Sunday School, or Junior Church. Everyone is in the service at the same time. It can get a little noisy. However, we believe that togetherness is an important aspect of being a church family. For more information on this topic, please go to the Anchor DNA tab under teaching and listen to the sermon entitled "Together on Purpose."
We like being simple.
Sunday afternoon is a casual atmosphere. You don't need to dress up, though you are certainly welcome to do so. We don't pass the offering plate, but there is a tin container available if you want to donate money to Anchor Church. We work hard to make the sermon understandable and applicable, regardless of your background.
We (normally) have a meal every week.
We have a potluck dinner every week. At least, we used to until COVID-19 happened. We have temporarily cancelled our potluck dinner but are hoping to restart it sometime this summer. Once it restarts, we encourage everyone to bring something to share. However, you are welcome to stay and eat with us, whether you bring something to share or not.
We start with the sermon...and end with the music.
We start with the sermon because it is easier for kids to sit still at the beginning of the service. By the time they are getting wiggly, it is time to stand up and sing.
