New to Gospel Life Church? We’re thrilled you’re here!

WHAT’S GOSPEL LIFE CHURCH REALLY LIKE?
Want to know the best part? No matter what you’ve been through or what questions you might have about God and faith, our church is a place where you’ll find the love, grace, and forgiveness Jesus gives to everyone.
WHAT'S IN THE WELCOME PACKAGE?
New Visitors are so valuable to us… and we really want them to feel it. Visitors are an answer to our prayers, after all!
So, every Welcome Package comes with:
• $5 Donation to one of our partner charities – we want to serve our community and better the world in the name of Jesus!
• $5 Gift Card to Bindle Coffee – we want to support you during the week – whatever you’re going through, get a pick-me-up on us!
• “GLC in 5″ Pamphlet – to quickly get you up to speed on who we are, where we come from, where we’re going, where you fit in, & why it matters.
All that, and you can grab coffee & donuts & get our support & prayers when you come to visit us on a Sunday!
All free – because we really value you and can’t wait to meet you!
WHAT DO YOU BELIEVE?
• We believe that sin separated us from God & destroyed that bond, and we believe that Jesus came to rescue us and restore it through His death, burial, and resurrection. And we believe that He is returning someday to deal with all evil & restore His Kingdom.
• This is the story all mankind is caught up in, and God has invited us to participate by following Him and trusting in Jesus.
And we believe that God has revealed all of this in the Bible.
Phew! If you have any more specific questions, you can check out our Statement of Faith!
WHAT ABOUT MY KIDS?
We have a Nursery and a Kid’s Church staffed with volunteers who have not only passed all the background checks, but are really great with kids, in teaching them and encouraging them.
We don’t have a youth group yet, but if you bring your teens we could start one! However, while we don’t have a lot of teens, we do have a lot of younger 20-somethings who love hanging out with, talking to, and encouraging teens to live awesome lives.
On Sunday, you check them in before the service at the Welcome Table up front, then they hang out with you while we sing together, and they’ll go listen to their message while you listen to yours. Then we check em out (with the same parent who checked em in, please!) and you’re on your way!
(With a coffee gift card in hand because we know that struggle.)
DO YOU GUYS DO _______?
You’ll find that we’re pretty “normal” folks, except we are ALL about loving Jesus and being more like Him. And if there is anything we do that is confusing or strange, we’ll happily explain it.
But we genuinely don’t think you’ll be weirded out.
WILL I FIT IN?
We work very hard to be a welcoming, loving group, characterized by a real desire to serve others and treat others as more important than ourselves.
With that said, we are mostly made up of young, white, married parents… although we don’t want to stay that way. We would love to meet you no matter what, and we make it our aim to be as welcoming as we can possibly be!
WHAT IS SUNDAY LIKE?
- You’ll see cables and folding chairs and folding tables with donuts on them. (Help yourself!)
- We’ll sing some hymns together as a group (including the kids!)
- Then our Pastor will share some announcements
- Kids go to Nursery or Kids Church, depending on their age.
- We’ll enjoy a 45 minute message out of the Bible
- We’ll all enjoy coffee and donuts and laughter together, and put all our stuff back in the church trailer.
Also, somebody (probably Tim) will make sure you’ve gotten your welcome package!
And then most Sundays we go to lunch after the service as a group and laugh some more!
