What To Expect


Visiting for the first time?   Here’s what to Expect:



Service Time & Location

Sundays 10:00 A.M. 

Location:  719 1/2 S Giant City Road, Carbondale, Illinois 62901

When Should I arrive?

Sunday gatherings begin at 10:00 a.m., but plan on getting there a few minutes early.


In John 16:14 Jesus declares what the central work of the Holy Spirit would be; “He will glorify me, and He will take what is mine and declare it to you”.  For this reason, our gatherings will be Christ-centered. These gatherings will include readings from the Bible, singing to God, the preaching of the Bible, The Lord’s Supper, baptism, and prayer. Plan on being with us for about 1 hour and 15 minutes.

Families with Children

We love to serve parents by offering childcare for young children (Ages birth-K). During this time we teach the Bible, sing, dance, and reinforce the foundations of the Gospel.

Our volunteers are required to be trained and screened, and we maintain strict teacher-to-child ratios to ensure safe care. For health standards, children must be free from fever or symptoms of contagious disease for 24 hours. Let us know of any allergies or medical conditions your child may have.

Because it is our joy to help older children find their place among our family and to serve and worship with us, we encourage parents to bring their 1st through 12th grade children and young adults to participate in our Sunday morning gathering.
