What takes place in the Worship service?
On Sunday mornings we have two worship services at 8:30am and 11:00am. We also have small groups for all ages at 9:45am on Sunday mornings. Our greeters will be happy to help guide you to the LifeQuest Group of your choice (you can find more information on those here). A normal Sunday morning worship services consist of worship through song, and an expository message from the Word of God.
Will I be asked to give money?
In most of our services, an offering is received, and you can also give online or via text (see our Giving page for details) but visitors are under no obligation to give. If you do not want to give, or are unable to give, simply pass the offering plate to the person next to you. You will not be embarrassed in any way.
Will I be asked to say anything publicly?
No, no public declarations are required by any member or guest to Bloom Baptist Church.
I have young children, will there be a place for them?
We have a wonderful nursery for children. Parents are encouraged to take advantage of this. Our greeters and people at the welcome center will help you find it. All of those who work with children have been trained to do so, as well as having undergone background checks. We also have a check-in system to ensure that all children are accounted for and are picked up by the appropriate parent/guardian. Bloom Baptist is deeply committed to provide safeguards for your child's protection.
What kind of music do you use?
Our worship services feature blended music. We worship with contemporary worship music, as well as contemporary arrangements of classic hymns. We feel it important to provide a balanced service that ministers to believers of all ages. The most important element of music for us is that our worship glorifies and praises God, proclaiming the good news of the Gospel of Jesus Christ.
How long does the service last?
Most public worship services at Bloom Baptist last about an hour.
What Bible is used?
People are not required to use any particular version of the Bible. Our Pastor normally uses the NLT for it's readability during his message, while using and referencing more in-depth translations during his sermon preparation.
