What to Expect
Where real life and real faith come together
Open Bible Church is a friendly, family oriented church desiring to grow in our relationship with Christ and each other. Our church is built on strong Biblical teaching and the life-transforming power of Jesus Christ. We’ve combined all the elements necessary to create an inviting, exciting, and life-changing atmosphere. Here are answers to some of the questions you may have.
Do I need to dress up?
Only if you want to. Most people dress casually at Open Bible Church and everyone dresses comfortably, so wear what you like.
What is the atmosphere like?
At Open Bible Church, you’ll find real people - in other words, people just like you. It is not about a building, a place, or an organization - our church is about people! Some words that describe the people at Open Bible are “friendly, warm, open, accessible, and loving.” Come as you are, and be yourself!
What happens during the church service?
Each week is different, but some common elements include the following:
- Contemporary worship. Without even realizing it, you’ll find yourself clapping and singing along. Plan to have fun and be re-energized for your week!
- Creative elements such as video, drama or special music.
- A message that is practical, relevant and Biblical.
- Altar ministry. Prayer for people’s needs is still being answered by a living God!
- You won't be singled out! You can participate or not, it's all up to you.
What are the messages like?
Each week we’ll present creative messages from the Bible that will easily apply to your life. We want you to walk out of Open Bible with a greater understanding of God’s plan for your life and how you can practically live that out during the next week. If you are just checking out what Christianity is all about, you’ll easily understand what we’re talking about. If you’ve been a follower of Jesus for years, plan to be challenged in your faith.
How long does the service last?
The service is usually between 1 and 1½ hours long.
Are children welcome in the service?
Absolutely! We offer an excellent K.I.D.S. Church service as well as a wonderful infant and toddler nursery geared to meet their specific needs. We use a child I.D. system to protect your family.
Anything else I should know?
On the first Sunday of each month, we serve breakfast in our Café before the service from 8:45 – 9:45 a.m. So come early and enjoy a cup of coffee or a doughnut, monkey bread, egg casserole, etc. etc! This is offered for $3 per person with the proceeds being used to meet the needs of children in Boone and around the world.
