At Praise Center, we make it easy to get connected. Our growth track is designed to help you learn more about the church, make new friends and find your place of ministry. Church 101, Foundation 201 and Discovery 301 are all designed to help you get connected to God, build healthy relationship and discover your gifts. Check out the church bulletin and calendar for when these sessions are offered.
Join us every Wednesday at 5:30 p.m. for dinner, followed by a time of worship and a bible study at 6 p.m. Wednesday nights are a time of good food, fellowship and growing together. If you are busy during the week and don't have time to prepare a meal in the evening and still make it to church, we've got you covered. Just show up, eat dinner with us and enjoy a nice evening.
Our youth club 1st through 6th grade meets together in the 10:30 service. They also meet on Wednesdays at 6 after the meal. They have a wonderful time of learning, games and building friendships. Youth Club is for ages 6 to 11.

Congratulations on your recent decision to become a follower of Jesus. This is the single best decision you can make for your life, family and future. Praise Center is here to help you on this new journey. Welcome to the family!
The bible says in 2 Corinthians 5:17, "Anyone who belongs to Christ has become a new person. The old life is gone, a new life begun."
A next great step in your new journey would be to come to one of our Church 101 sessions. We hold these quarterly so watch the bulletin for the next date.
Another great step would be to inquire about our Foundations 201 hybrid course. This course can be taken a variety of ways (one-on-one, small group, self paced) and gives you the foundation you need to understand what it means to be a Christian.
The bible says in Acts 8:12, "When they believed Philip as he proclaimed the good news of the Kingdom of God and the name of Jesus Christ, they were baptized, both men and women."
Once you have made a decision to be a follower of Jesus, we encourage you to be baptized in water. Water baptism does not save you but it symbolizes the old you has died and the new you in Christ has come alive. We are following the example that Jesus gave when we are baptized in water.
The bible says in Proverbs 27:17, "As iron sharpens iron, so one person sharpens another."
It is very important for every believer to be connected to the body of Christ. (the church) There are many ways to get connected at Praise Center with bible study small groups, fellowship groups and ministry opportunities. We are not meant to make this journey alone so get connected today.
