VISITING PILLAR

What to Expect

Service

As we begin our time of worship, we sing several songs, offer prayers and hear Scripture read. Preaching at Pillar Church is generally expositional, meaning that it seeks to declare the point of a particular Biblical passage. Sermons usually last around 30 – 40 minutes and are packed with material for reflection. All preaching is driven by the Gospel, the Bible’s main message of God saving sinners through the death and resurrection of Jesus Christ. After the sermon, we sing a song or two in response to what was preached and then close in prayer.

Post-Service

A typical service is finished by 11-11:30 am. Those who wish to stick around are welcome to do so. Folks will often stay after to spend time discussing the sermon or events from the past week over a cup of coffee.

Music

The music we sing at Pillar Church is a blend of old and new. Most of us who are comfortable with music from one particular era have discovered, while at Pillar, that we have come to enjoy other songs we had not previously encountered. Congregational singing emphasizes the gathered body of believers singing praise to God with one voice.

CHILDREN’S MINISTRY

What about my kids?

We offer childcare for children 5 and under during the worship service. Our childcare volunteers are all screened, trained, and background checked to ensure your child’s safety. 

FAQ

Questions?

What kind of church is Pillar?

Pillar is a baptist church in friendly cooperation with the Southern Baptist Convention. However, our congregation is made up of members from various denominational backgrounds. Our teaching is from a Reformed perspective and we embrace complementarianism in both the home and church. We are led by elders, served by deacons, and governed by the congregation.


How long are your services?

Our services usually last about an hour and a half. Each Sunday service consists of prayers and readings from Scripture, 4 songs, a time for communion, and a sermon lasts about 30 – 40 minutes.
