Come to the Worship Center for the service. Text the word "welcome" to 252-591-5656 to let us know you're here and allow us to connect with you.

Stop by and meet Pastor Jeff Manning in the Fellowship Mall following the service. While there, you can also visit our Guest Services Center and pick up a welcome packet.


  • A friendly greeting. The Welcome Team will be there to greet you at the front door where you enter into the Fellowship Mall. The Welcome Center is located here, with any vital information you may need. They will give you a bulletin outlining the day’s events, and will be happy to guide you to nursery and preschool classes, Children’s Church, a Life Group, or anything you need to find.
  • Worshipful music. During our worship times, we love to sing! A balanced mix of hymns and contemporary songs all work together to prepare our hearts to hear a message from the Bible.
  • An “official” welcome. You will hear an official welcome from on of our pastors, and be filled in about what’s going on with some of our various ministries.
  • An opportunity to give. Offering boxes are located at the Worship Center entrances. You can also give via our church app and website. You can also mail it or bring it by the church office weekdays 8am to 2pm. Your partnership allows us to lead our neighbors and the nations to become fully devoted disciples of Jesus. 
  • Bible-centered preaching and teaching. Most importantly, you will be challenged by God’s Word being preached clearly, concisely, and powerfully.
