Maranatha Christian Center has weekly worship services on Sundays at 8:00am and 10:45am.
All services start on time. Our 8:00am service is a more traditional service known as the “Hour of Power” and our 10:45am Worship service is filled with Celebration.
Maranatha is a place where all are welcome. As you enter the sanctuary, Ushers and Greeters will be on hand to assist you in anyway they can and escort you to a seat.
Our services commence with prayer and worship. Our worship team leads the congregation in praise and worship and the lyrics to each song are available on video screens. Visitors are welcome to sing and worship along with the congregation. Our warm and friendly greeters are here to welcome all first time visitors and friends each Sunday. Fellowship is a big part of who we are at Maranatha Christian Center, and so during each service we take some time to meet and greet others in the congregation. We serve Communion (The Lord's Supper) on the first Sunday of every month. When we do so, a pastor clearly explains the significance of this practice.
Generally, the sermon is presented by our senior pastor, Tony Williams. However, there are times when one of the other pastors or a guest minister will present the message. Pastor Tony is widely known for his practical, down to earth, Bible-centered teaching that helps us apply God's timeless truth to our everyday lives. And you'll love his keen sense of humor!
The following services are available during the 10:45am service:
Nursery care for ages 0 - 5
Children's Church for ages 6 - 12
Revolutions for ages 13 - 17
Following the service, Pastor Tony is available to greet visitors at the front of the sanctuary. In addition, those who don't have to leave immediately are free to enjoy refreshments in our Welcome Center.
We hope you enjoy your visit to Maranatha Christian Center.
