Whether you have joined us on a Sunday morning already or are considering visiting us on a Sunday morning, we are sure you may have a question or two! This part of the website is just for you. Think of this as a FAQ area for our church. Take a look around and if you still have questions please contact us with your questions.
Question: How do I get there?
Answer:  We are located at 5339 S. New Hope Rd., Belmont, NC 28012.  If you are familiar with the area, we are located about half-way between the Fish Camps and Daniel Stowe Botanical Gardens.  If you’re not familiar with area, check out Google Maps Here
Question: What time should I get there?
Answer: Worship is at 10:30 (we have Bible Classes/Sunday School for children and adults at 9:30; we have coffee, donuts too!)
Question: What should I wear? 
Answer: You may come in casual clothes or dressed up. We don’t care. (Really, we don’t.)
Question: What will my kids do?
Answer: Your kid(s) will have the chance to attend a class grouped by age. In their class they will be taught a Bible based lesson by our Youth Pastor or one of our Awesome Kidz Block Teachers. For more info about what your kid(s) might do check out Our Ministries page. 
Question: Will my kid(s) be safe and well taken care of? 
Answer: Yes, your Kid(s) will be safe while they are away from you. All of our volunteers have had an extensive background check and are long-term members of our church.  During service there is designated security person who walks through the parking lot and walks through the kids ministry area to ensure everyone and everything is secure.
Question: What can I really expect when I show up? 
Answer: We try to have a relaxed and friendly atmosphere.  People will say “Hi” to you, but you won’t be stared at or peppered with personal questions.  We sing upbeat, meaningful songs and have a praise band.  We take communion every Sunday.  We take up an offering (but you don’t have to put anything in … really, you don’t!).  We have classes for your kids, or they can stay in “big church” with you.  You won’t be yelled at, singled out, asked to speak or put in the spotlight.  You will be smiled at, spoken to, welcomed and maybe even hugged.
Question: What about communion and offering? 
Answer: We do take communion every Sunday (but you won’t feel out of place). Communion is passed to everyone in attendance and we believe that the decision to participate is between you and God (1 Corinthians 11:28).  We take up an offering (but you don’t have to put anything in … really, you don’t!).
Question: Can I bring my smartphone or tablet?
Answer: Absolutely!  We have wireless internet available for you to use. We use the YouVersion Bible App (a free App that you can find in your app store) to share our message notes each Sunday. 
Question: I have a question that is not listed here? 
Answer:  If you have another question that you want to ask you can visit our contact us section. From there you can fill out the form with your question and a Pastor will get back with you shortly. 
Question: what does the church look like on a Sunday morning?
Answer: It would look like something like this ….

    O Be Careful Little Ears …
    We are constantly bombarded with calls for our attention; commercials, online advertising, telemarketers, our kids, our bosses, our bills ... everyone and everything clamors for our attention. How do we decide who to listen to? This is true of Wisdom and Folly. Both call out to us; both offer to give us the "food" we want and need, but only one delivers what it promised."09_ListenTo" from 04_Proverbs by G. Scott Patterson. Released: 2018. Genre: Other.

    He Who Lacks Discipline …
    Very few accomplishments happen by accident. Most require planning, effort, some amount of skill ... and discipline. Solomon teaches his "son" all about the importance of discipline and we too need it if we want to live successful, Godly lives."08_Discipline" from 04_Proverbs by G. Scott Patterson. Released: 2018.

    What You Feed Grows
    Proverbs 2 is all about what it takes to "gain" wisdom. If you pursue it, if you "feed" it, it will grow. If you ignore God, His Word, His Spirit, His teaching, His leading ... wisdom will die. It's just that simple."06_FeedGrows" from 04_Proverbs by G. Scott Patterson. Released: 2018. Genre: Other.

    The Best Things Aren’t Free
    Colossians 3:23–24 (ESV) 23 Whatever you do, work heartily, as for the Lord and not for men, 24 knowing that from the Lord you will receive the inheritance as your reward. You are serving the Lord Christ. Too often we treat our jobs or whatever it is that we are doing as if it had little or no spiritual value. The Bible says otherwise. Proverbs has much to say about the difference between being wise (and working hard) and being a sluggard."Wisdom_AudioLineIn_001_0" by Work. Genre: Blues.

Prayer Ministry
In addition to our prayer time on Sunday, we have a dedicated group of people who pray for those in need.  They pray for those who are on our prayer list but also accept private and personal request that people would not like to be made “public.”  We do our best to keep all things confidential by not publishing the last names of those on our prayer list (unless they are members of our church). If you have a prayer need, Please contact us and we will will pray for you.
