3.  What are the services like?

At Bible Fellowship Community Church our desire is to honor the Lord and have worship services that give glory and praise to Him.  As such, you’ll find our services full of uplifting music including traditional hymns and praise songs.  There is always a time of announcements, praises, prayer, and an offering.  Everything is done to prepare our hearts and minds for the preaching and teaching of God’s Word.


4.  Will I be singled out during the service?

Our desire is never to single out or embarrass anyone during our services.  If you’re a visitor, then you’ll be given a welcome card before the service as you enter the building.  We’d love for you to fill out the information card inside the pamphlet so that our Pastor can drop you a note or give you a call.  No one will come to your house unless you request a visit and an appointment made.


5.  Am I expected to give money during the offering?

At Bible Fellowship Community Church, we practice the Biblical principle of Stewardship by the giving of tithes and offerings.  However, we do not require anyone to participate in our time of offering.  We feel that this is between the individual and what God has laid on their heart concerning supporting the ministry.  As a visitor to our service, our desire is for the Lord to speak to your heart and for our service to be a blessing and encouragement to you.


6.  How should I dress?

At Bible Fellowship Community Church there is no specific dress code for those who attend.  You’ll find that we have a wide range of diversity in regards to dress.  Our desire is for you to feel welcome when you join us for worship.


7.  Can I meet the Pastor?

Yes!  At the end of our morning service we have a time of fellowship.  Pastor Mike (Sneeringer) would be happy to greet you and talk during this time and help answer your questions.  Also, if time does not permit for you to stay or more time is needed an appointment can be made for a personal visit.


8.  Do you support missionaries?

At Bible Fellowship Community Church, we believe that this is a Biblical mandate of all churches.  At this time BFC Church is supports six (6) missionaries, including 5 - families, with plans to add an additional family by the end of the year.  This number will continue to grow over the next several years as we endeavor to assist in evangelizing the world for Jesus Christ. We also support TEEN Quest (a local Christian Youth Ministry & Camping Center) on a monthly basis. 


9.  What opportunities do you have for our children and teens?

Our Junior Church program incorporates times of fun and games with teaching from God’s Word and scripture memorization.  This is held during our Sunday morning worship service.  Children from Pre-K – 4th grades can participate in this.  We also have Sunday Bible School that is geared towards the whole family, which meets at 9:30 am every Sunday Morning. One of the high-lights of our youth ministry is our Vacation Bible School (VBS) Program held each summer. Another great ministry of BFC Church for youth from 9 years and up is "Puppets Alive"!  Additional youth and children’s activities are being added as needed as we continue to grow this new church.
