How to find us?
What should I expect on my first visit?
When you attend Sunday School, you will find age appropriate classes for you and your family that will provide solid Bible teaching and friendly fellowship. Sunday School is the best opportunity to meet new people and get plugged in to the ministries of our church.
In the worship service, you will enjoy the beautiful Christ-honoring music of our congregation, choir, special groups, and soloists. The music will be followed by a practical Bible message from Pastor Ed Navato.
What about my children?
We love kids at Maranatha! Starting with our beautiful nurseries, we have something for every age and stage of childhood. During every service, there is a clean, and secure nursery for children under the age of three.
For children age 4 through the 6th grade, we offer exciting Sunday School classes. Our classes led by experienced, friendly, and well qualified teachers. Your child will love Sunday School! During the worship service you are welcome to bring your children into the auditorium or to let them attend our fun children’s church programs.
What about my teens?
Your 7th – 12th graders will attend Sunday School in our Teen Ministry. After Sunday school, teens join their families in the main auditorium for the morning service.
What should I wear?
You will find that many of our members wear traditional Sunday dress. Our greatest desire is for you to feel welcome and encouraged on your first visit.
Am I expected to give in the offerings?
No. We want our service to be a gift to you. We hope that you will find Maranatha to be a warm, friendly church that glorifies Christ through the powerful preaching of God’s Word.
