Frequently Asked Questions

You have questions. We have answers.

1. What time is your Sunday worship service and where are you located?
The worship service is an hour and fifteen minutes, starting at 10:00AM. We are located at 5425 Martindale Rd, Shawnee, KS 66218

2. What can I expect as a first time guest?

If you come before 10:00AM, you will have the opportunity to speak with church leadership, volunteers, and other church attendees while enjoying a cup of complimentary coffee. We will start the service with worship, followed by a short offering message and an opportunity to give. There is never any pressure to give. After the offering message, Pastor Max will teach a grace based, clear, and biblical message with real life application. Following the message Pastor Max will extend an invitation to anyone that desires to receive prayer. Following the service there is more opportunity to fellowship. If you enjoy the service and would like to get more involved with the church, we have more information for you. (See question 12)
