Getting to know each other

What can I expect?
HOW LONG IS A GOLD COUNTRY BAPTIST SERVICE?
In total, a Gold Country Baptist church service is about 70 minutes in length. Services begin with the music team leading the church in worship through music - song lyrics are projected onto the front screen so you can sing along, as well as hymnals. We take time each Sunday to give minsitry opportunites and church family updates. One of our men in the church leads the church in the public reading of God's Word, and one of our leaders will also lead a corporate prayer of confession, praise, thanksgiving, or supplication. We reguarly give missionary updates, and pray for them as well. We also celebrate the Lord's Table (Communion) on the first Sunday of each month, and baptism and welcoming of new members are also performed on Sunday mornings.
WHAT IS THE CULTURE LIKE AT GOLD COUNTRY BAPTIST?
Sundays at Gold Country Baptist are filled with encouragement, with people excited to be together to worship the Lord. We come from all walks of life, ranging from new believers to people who have served the Lord their whole life. After a worship service, you will find many of the familes visiting throughout the campus sharing a meal and catching up on life's events. From the moment you walk through the door, you are greeted by many of our people who would love nothing more than to make you feel welcome and a part of the family.
WHAT ABOUT MY KIDS?
We believe that parents have been given the primary task of raising their kids to love and obey God. We would love to come alongside you and help in this task by offering children's Sunday School during the Sunday School hour and Children's Church during the worship services.
The other thing we make a priority is your children's safety. Because of that, we have a detailed check-in process for our children's program the first time you visit. You'll want to leave yourself an extra 5-10 minutes to get signed in. The Gold Country Baptist Children's programs are for kids ages infant through Grade 6. Additionally, we have a youth program for grades 6 through 12 during the Sunday School hour and Sunday nights.
